Pretty much since we were engaged it has been known that should we ever have a boy the nursery will be a baseball theme-specifically Texas Rangers. In the little bit of looking I've done so far, I have found several cute blue and white crib sets that could easily be paired with baseball-themed decorations. It's all very exciting.

That being said, I have been lacking inspiration for a girl's nursery. I always thought I would find it easier to come up with a girl's nursery than a boy's. Tis not true for me.

Until today.

I went to a training today for my business, and while walking through the snack line I was hit with my inspiration. It came in the form of a napkin. Yes, a napkin.

Here's the napkin we used today:

Isn't that so much fun!!! I don't know yet what I'll do with it, but it's definitely my inspiration!

We won't know whether Baby B will be boy or girl until mid-January, but I am SO excited to have inspiration in either direction that I can run with.

Update on Fall Into Reading 2010

So I'm not off to a fantastic start for my Fall Into Reading 2010 list. Here's where I stand:

I took Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix off the list. I just decided I didn't want to go back to #5. I've read 1-5 enough that I didn't feel the need. So, I scratched it off the list and moved on to #6. I have since finished #6 and started #7.

I'm abandoning Screwtape Letters. I cannot get in to the writing style on this book. It does not hold my interest, and I don't feel myself excited to pick it up to read. I have this rule that if I'm not looking forward to reading something, then I don't read it. I'm not sure why, but I feel like it's my prerogative as a reader. Having said that, I'm not holding out much hope for The Four Loves, but I will give it a go.

So, just a few weeks in, and I've already scratched 2 books off of my list of 10. Hmmmm...I'm gonna keep reading, and maybe I'll add a few extra in the end. :)

Happy Reading!
