Let's see...what else have I got?

Wow, you all were decidedly not interested in baby Oliver's to-be rockin' nursery. Four comments? ..and I worked my tail off on that board, too. Sads. about this? We learned yesterday that baby #3 is another GIRL!! From the get-go, I figured we were destined to have girls, but I took one of those Gender Predictor tests, and it said Boy. So, I had sort of gotten used to the idea that we'd have an XY child in the mix. Turns out, I should've trusted my instincts, as an ultrasound tells no lie, and a baby girl it is. No worries, though, she's looking perfect, and we're delighted and blessed for that.

Still not what you're looking for?

OK - how about some pretty rooms...The latest Lonny killed it. Sent me into some kind of design schizophrenia.

The house full of creamy (and in some cases, contrasting) neutrals have me seriously questioning my devotion to color...

...and then I spy glossy persimmon and aqua velvet (the fabric, not the aftershave), and I feel a tugging at my soul.

Lacquered walls - will we ever get over it? Not when it's this good.

How perfect would this be to reflect our overseas life?

See? We are of equal, rad style.

This pink couch, amid all this amazing natural light, gives me huge amounts of inspiration for when we move to Rio. What? Did I just say that? It's a secret, so shush.

Now for the quiz:
1) What two things did I reveal in this post?
2) What Missoni item did you snag from someone else's cart yesterday at TarJAY?

You're expecting another girl and moving to Rio! Did I get them?!?!?!
I didn't make it to Target until much later in the day. Managed to get a fab little tiered serving tray thingy and a cute shirt. All the other great home stuff was gone, gone, gone. Sigh.

congrats on the girl!! Your hubs is going to be WAY outnumbered!

PS- my family is 3 girls and a boy at the end. Not that I'm saying your should try for 4, but just sayin...

Congrats on the baby girl! As for Rio, your secret is safe with me.

Color glorious color! Why would I go to Target when I can stay home and revel in the beauty that is Lonny?

Congratulations on the 3rd girl, Alison! We are having a 2nd girl around the New Year. Yay for girls! My Target wasn't wiped as badly as most -- I picked up a cute girls sweater dress and leggings for my 4 year old, a mug, notecards and a baby blanket. Really wanted a tray and throw. Keeping my eyes open for re-stock in a few weeks!

1) Hmm - I've actually got three! Congratulations on baby girl #3 (I have 3 boys and it's just easier to dress the youngest in hand-me downs!), a secret move to Rio, and you should be in the pages of Lonny with your impecable style and taste!
2) A big fat goose egg - any Target within 2 hours of NYC got wiped out in 15 minutes!

Sorry...I was out on vacation last week otherwise I totally would have commented. Especially cause your boy name choice is my ultimate baby boy name. Does the little lady now become Olivia?

My friend who's expecting her 2nd daughter told me that it's genetically less common and more difficult to have a boy if you've already had two girls, but if you've had two boys it's not as difficult to have a girl as your third. I have never thought to check this information to see if it's a bunch of hooey, but I found it interesting.

Congratulations! Girls are fun (we have only two so far, but I'm sure 3 is extra fun!). And moving to Rio?? Wow. Love your style. Hope your pregnancy is going well.

1. Another girl 2.Rio, baby. How cool on both counts! Congrats! I haven't checked out Lonny yet, but definitely need to. Looks yummy. And I'm sorry I've been bad about commenting - just reading and going because of lack of time. But I loved your moodboard for Oliver's nursery. Those suckers do take a while to work on. I just did my second one (for my fantasy basement - which also hardly anyone commented on!) and it took forever. You've got skillz!
