Diaper Bag Dilemma

So I'm currently haveing a diaper bag dilemma.  Dilemma number one, I dont have one yet.  Dilemma number two, I don't know how much is too much.

I would really love to have an adorable bag from Petunia Pickle Bottom but they are just rediculously too much money for a bag.  So I was looking into other bags, it seems to me that they're all realitivly expensive if you want something somewhat cute, anywhere from $50 up.  I figure since I will most likely be utilizing this diaper bag for quite a while and it will most likely double as a purse most the time I might could bring myself to spend the money.

I found this very cute bag on  It's still a little pricy, but the custest I've found for the least amount of $, but not too much that I couldn't justify buying it as long as I use it for a year or more.

So, what I need from all you mommies out there is feedback.  Did you spend a pretty penny on your diaper bag?  If yes, was it worth it?  If no, what'd you get for how much and has it held up?

Baby Shower

I was lucky enough to have my first baby shower this weekend. (I know it's a little early but summer is just too busy for everyone and July worked best)  My wonderful sister threw it for me, it turned out AMAZING as everything she does is.  A lot of people showed up even with the heat and I cant be more grateful, we needed every little thing we got.  Let's just say the Tyce is going to be one stylish little guy when he gets here!

Thanks Charlotte 
Thanks to Everyone That Came!
We love you!
-Kait, Kyle & Tyce

Photo Editing

I was blog hoping around the other day and stumbled upon an awesome post about a free photo editing web site called Picnik.  I hoped on it to see what it was all about and as it turns out you can do some really cool stuff other than just making your pictures pretty; you can make photo collages, and add wording and such to your photo's like those pro bloggers that always tag their pics.  It only offers some of it's services for free, they have a premium program that you can pay for to get all the options, but what they do offer for free is more than enough for what I would want or need to do with it.  Just check out this before and after pic of our master bedroom.

I'm way excited to try it out when we have a million pics of the baby, cheaper than going to the pro's! Perfect for us normal PC owners that don't have all the bells and whistles.  Check it out for yourself here!

Tyce's Room

Kyle and I finally finished up all the painting and furniture assembly for Tyce's room this weekend.  I'm in love with it! 

(plain boring and beige)

 And remember this fabric, my Mom whipped up a darling bed set in no time at all.
The paint was an initial shocker for me but it turns out it was perfect.  I think the faux wainscoting turned out great too, it was definitely a learning experience for us getting it up.

Now I've got to get to decorating it.  I have a couple ideas in mind but not enough to fill the room.  Hopefully it will be ready for his arrival.  Which should be soon, I'm 30 weeks today, Wahoo!

Old to New

As you may remember I have recently decided to try my hand at refurbishing furniture to resell to bring in a little extra dinero.  My first endeavor was very successful selling for what I asked and fairly quickly.  It was onto the next.  I wanted to try something a little larger but I was hesitant to how it might sell.  So Erin and I were out shopping at the DI (my Mom's heart just stopped reading that) and we found a great piece and decided to go in on it together to see how it would sell.  My being the dork I am forgot a before pic of this.

We ended up going a little more neutral because it was such a large piece and thought that a bold color might be too much for most.  Well, it's been on KSL for quite some time now with not a whole lot of response.  I've had a few callers, some even asked if they could come out but no one ever showed (which I think is quite rude)  So we have been forced to reduce.  It's FOR SALE $80.00

I think I'll stick to the smaller easier to fit in home decor stuff from here on out; lesson learned.
