HELP! I can't decide on a Nursery Color Scheme!

I SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO need your help!! 

Now that we've decided to split the girl's up and Baby M 2.0 will have her own room, I have been in "Decorate nursery mode." 
I know what we are going to do on one of the walls in her room but I can't decide on a color scheme and with only 10 weeks left, I'M STRESSING OUT!!!! 

We plan on putting this plank treatment on the crib/focal wall. 
It won't be as rustic and just painted solid white.
 
My goal for this week is to pin point the color scheme and PRAY I can find at least one of the fabrics that will go in her room.
I've been on the search for fabric and nothing as screamed "Use me in your nursery!" either so I thought I would try to get the colors first.

So, will you help me out?! 

I am kinda all over the place with the color schemes that I like. I like a few different ones and just am not positive which route I really want to go. Some are on the brighter side, some are a lighter... AHHHHH!

I am going to share a few that I've pinned and like and will you please vote on what you like best?! 
Some are pretty similar so I will try to place those near each other. 
THANKS!! 

 Sorry that some of the pics are blurry. They were small and I couldn't find a larger image of them so hope you can tell the colors.

 A.) This is the scheme I was originally going to do for Baby M 2.0 when she was going to share a room with her sister. It would be a brighter yellow though.
I still really like it but trying to decide if I want to completely change it up from Miss P's.

B.) This is similar to Scheme A. but it has more green in it but I think I still like it with yellow.

Baby M 2.0 Update: 29 Weeks

Another week almost in the books and the ticker is getting a little louder on Baby M's arrival! 
Crazy!!!! 


How far along? 29 weeks
Total weight gain: I think I am about 17 or 18 lbs.
Maternity clothes? I've been in pretty much all maternity pants now but I can still wear plenty of my regular shirts.
Stretch marks?
Not new ones... just the ones from Miss P. :P
Sleep: Pretty good. Had a few nights of having trouble falling asleep but not bad staying asleep.
Best moment this week: Few moments this week... Our kitchen cabinets getting painted and put back together! (check out my instagram pics for some sneak peaks. The big reveal will come after our backsplash is complete.) Also, we decided that the girls will NOT share a room anymore! So... time to start planning a new nursery! Wish me luck!
Miss Anything? Breathing normally and not needing to eat something every 2 stinkin' hours! I am getting to the point of my hips hurting, especially in the mornings, so waking up and walking normally- not like a 98 yr old who needs a walker would be great! lol

Movement: I definitely feel baby girl much more these days. She is pretty laid back and chill but she is starting to move more and I definitely can expect to feel her around certain times now.
Food cravings: Nope which isn't surprising because I didn't crave anything with Miss P.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still when I get really congested and can't breathe it makes me sick. Other than that, it is when I let too much time pass between snacks or meals.
Gender: GIRL!!!
Labor Signs: Nope
Belly Button (in or out): It is still in but rather shallow these days.

Wedding Rings (on or off): On
Symptoms: Congestion! BLAH! A little round ligament pain and I am starting to get the hip pain when sleeping on one side for too long. I think I need to go to a chiropractor and get my hips realigned. Pretty sure one good push would do it for me!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Relatively happy.
Looking forward to: Figuring out stuff for the nursery and getting started on it all! :) Better get a move on since we have 10 1/2 weeks to go!

"No Soliciting" Vinyl Decal Sign

I have a super easy project today for ya. 
We get SOOOOOO many solicitors in our neighborhood. It drives me bonkers! 
No, I don't need my carpets cleaned, I don't want to take your survey, and I already have cable so I don't want to switch. 

I was so tired of hearing our doorbell ring from these people (and ignoring them) that I finally made a "No Soliciting" sign to put on our storm door. 


Ready to know how I did it?

Baby M 2.0 Update: Week 28

How am I this far in my pregnancy? 
I feel like time is flying and I am prefectly fine with that, but then I freak myself out knowing how much time is left and knowing I haven't done ANYTHING to prepare for Baby 2. 

 Anyways...

How far along? 28 weeks
Total weight gain: I think I am about 17 or 18 lbs.
Maternity clothes? I've been in pretty much all maternity pants now but I can still wear plenty of my regular shirts.
Stretch marks?
Not new ones... just the ones from Miss P. :P
Sleep: Since we've been home, I had a few nights of congestion so I have had to get up more than once at night to try to clear up my nose but other than that, I am sleeping well still.
Best moment this week: Few moments this week... Everything went well at my 28 wk appt. Hated that I had to take my gluclose test but thrilled I PASSED! And we got brand new countertops installed and today are cabinets are being painted! :)
Miss Anything? Breathing normally and not needing to eat something every 2 stinkin' hours! I am getting to the point of my hips hurting, especially in the mornings, so waking up and walking normally- not like a 98 yr old who needs a walker would be great! lol

Symptoms: Congestion! BLAH! A little round ligament pain and I am starting to get the hip pain when sleeping on one side for too long. I think I need to go to a chiropractor and get my hips realigned. Pretty sure one good push would do it for me!
Happy or Moody most of the time: I have been happy but I have had quite a few moody moments as well. I think with the house being a wreck from the kitchen renovation is driving me nuts and my patience has been short.
Looking forward to: Our kitchen being complete! Well, the cabinets painted at least. We will still need to pick out and install a backsplash.
And I am HOPING and PRAYING to be able to find some crafting time this week too!

Baby M 2.0 Update: Weeks 26 and 27

Oops! With being out of town, I never shared my Week 26 update so I am throwing it in with my Week 27 update.

But I want to say HELLO THIRD TRIMESTER!! 
Yahoo!! 
I feel like it arrived quickly and I am pretty darn excited about that! :) 



How far along? 26 weeks and 27 weeks
Total weight gain: 13 pounds... I'm sure I have gained some, especially with being out of town, I'll find out this week for sure.
Maternity clothes? I've been in pretty much all maternity pants now but I can still wear plenty of my regular shirts.
Stretch marks?
Not new ones... just the ones from Miss P. :P
Sleep: Had some rough nights the past few weeks but they weren't pregnancy related. Miss P was having a rough time sleeping while we were on our trip which in turn made me not get much sleep as well.
Best moment this week: Of week 26- going to GA for a family reunion and seeing my entire family that I haven't seen in a few years. Week 27- getting home from our trip! Sleeping in our bed again was AWESOME!
Miss Anything? Breathing normally and not needing to eat something every 2 stinkin' hours!

Movement: I definitely feel baby girl much more these days. She is pretty laid back and chill but she is starting to move more and I definitely can expect to feel her around certain times now.
Food cravings: Nope which isn't surprising because I didn't crave anything with Miss P.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still when I get really congested and can't breathe it makes me sick. Other than that, it is when I let too much time pass between snacks or meals.
Gender: GIRL!!!
Labor Signs: Nope
Belly Button (in or out): In but slowly getting shallower

Wedding Rings (on or off): On
Symptoms: Congestion! BLAH! A little round ligament pain and I am starting to get the hip pain when sleeping on one side for too long.
Happy or Moody most of the time: I've been pretty happy this week.
Looking forward to: Getting home from our crazy whirlwind of a trip!

And I am adding- Dreading any moment: I have to take my Gluclose Test this week and just like I was with Miss P, I am totally dreading having to drink that aweful drink!

Color and Shape Flashcard Printables

I shared these flashcards over at Wait Til Your Father Gets Home a few weeks ago and thought I would share them with all of you as well.

You all already know that Miss P recently turned 1 and I've been thinking about starting Mommy School with her.

I thought I would start with some simple things like colors and shapes. We have some puzzles at home with the shapes but I wanted to use some flashcards as well and thought I would make my own.
