Another update...

Well, still no news on our closing date. We are told they are getting close. Could have fooled me! I've lost my patience.

We are bored to death in this awful apartment. We've been out shopping for furniture, paint, carpet, etc. It's so hard when you aren't living in the house yet. Our kitchen & dining room furniture are ready, the washer and dryer are ready and I just keep putting them off on delivery dates. We have our carpet picked out and ready to order but we're afraid to do so until we have a date.

It is a gorgeous day out there so I took a ride. I've been trying to find papers to match this cute bedding that my cousin picked out. I need to make a scrapbook but it won't be done in time for her shower. I'll have to give her an IOU. I bought a gift today so that she has something to open. I've looked online, at my lss, the local craft store chains and I can't find enough of one product to do a whole album. There's a cute line by Doodlebug but they only have a set of stickers and three papers. Another cute one is by Little Yellow Bicycle which I may end up buying at my lss. All they have are die cuts on a sheet and two or three papers. If you know of a place to purchase these or another cute safari line, please let me know! ** I keep meaning to edit to say that this is the Babies R Us photo of this room, not my cousin's baby's room. LOL

I think I'll play for a bit to see if I can come up with a card. I can't do one for the shower yet because I didn't bring any blues or baby stamps. I did find an adorable set with a lion, giraffe and hippo though. I held off from buying for now.

I hope you here soon about the house. I'll keep my fingers and toes crossed for you.

I can't help as far as your search for the perfect baby papers but that room with the animal theme is a really cute baby room!

Ugh, I bet you are way past tired of the apartment, I know I would be. I hate that it's taking so long. What a pain - hope you have good news today or this week. Hurry up already people! :)

I hope you're settled into your new home soon, Michelle. Think good thoughts for you.

The baby's room is just darling. Love the theme.
