Halloween is almost here...

Halloween is only a month away, which means I've been hard at work looking for JD's costume. Last year I bought JD an adorable Tom Arma Monkey Costume and although we were both sick on Halloween we did manage to get a few really cute portraits in his costume a couple of weeks before! This year JD is not only walking, but running (running wild) and cute and cuddly just doesn't seem to fit his personalty anymore. So I thought long and hard and after talking it over with the hubby, we finally decided on a costume; a very well known Disney villain costume! I just can't wait to see our little “buccaneer” running around this Halloween. Can you guess who JD is going to be for Halloween?

Here's a clue:

Robot Room Decor

I'm taking a little break from posting road trip pictures to talk about Robot Room Decor! When we decided on JD's big boy room theme I began looking for robot crib bedding or robot fabric (which is really hard to find) and few weeks ago I came across a robot sheet set at Pottery Barn Kids, I completely fell in love with it; unfortunately it was no longer available. I'm one of those crazy people, once I see something I really love I will work as hard as possible to get it, which usually means doing a whole bunch of research, keeping in mind that I never pay full price for anything. After searching online for weeks, I finally found the Pottery Barn robot sheet set on eBay, but the seller was asking $499.00 (claiming it was rare) and that was just ridiculous, especially since I just wanted the material to make JD his own bedding! Well, on Friday I finally found the robot bedding on eBay at a “reasonable price” and by Saturday morning after a 10 minute bidding battle, I won it for $50 bucks and it's on it's way now. I can't wait to get started, my mom and I already have a sewing day planned!
Here are some of the things I will be making (with my moms help) for JD's new big boy robot room. My thought is, if you can't find what your looking for, make it one of a kind by making it yourself!
