A few of my favorite things

Every girl enjoys shopping. Especially for little girls and babies. Here are a few things that I have fallen in love with in the past couple of weeks, I just thought that I would share ;)

Mom's that have their babies have raved about the Beco Butterfly. So . . . I HAD to get one! I found this one on Ebay, rarely used, for a little less than other stores that offer this brand. To be honest, I loved the print and other stores didn't carry it. It's the 1.0 and most were pushing the newest 2.0. I have already purchased this and can't wait to put our little girl in it.

For those of you who don't know, babies in Korea are "worn" by their foster parents, and these have proven to be very helpful with attachment and bonding.
Here's the color swatch; I LOVE brown and pink together!

The next favorite thing, and I'm sure most of you will agree, is PotteryBarn. I LOVE all of their kids stuff. I had a regular Diaper Bag with each son and I hated both of them (the diaper bags). Everything got lost in the bottom. I never could find anything in them! Besides the fact that they were impossible to carry with a baby on the hip, they were ugly! Not this one! This time I'm going for a backpack . . . not just any 'ol back pack, a Pottery Barn KIDS backpack. Check this out!

Complete with our little girl's name inscribed on it. (Guess which one I like the best? You guessed it . . . .pink! I just wish there was more brown. Oh well.) I'm thinking she can use it when she gets older! A cousin bought both our boys a PB Duffle for Christmas last year and they are the coolest thing! Very durable and tons of pockets, thus more organization! This will be my next purchase!

Another favorite place is the Children's Place. I'm sure I'm not alone on this either. Once we were on the Girl's List with our agency I started looking for cute little girly dresses. I could finally stop looking and actually move toward purchasing. And although we have been on the list for almost 6 months, I still haven't purchased a dress for her. Two reasons; 1) I don't have clue when she will be born (I have a feeling that she is in fact born, just not sure) and 2) how big she will be when we get her. I want to get her a spring dress and I just don't know what size to get. Once we get her referral, I can celebrate with getting her the perfect dress, which brings me to my next favorite thing.

Isn't it just PERFECT! But wait . . . there's more! You have to prepare for that chilly Colorado spring air. A perfect dress has to have this to go with it!

A pretty pink princess can't go without . . . shoes!

My heart melted when I saw these little things. Aren't they just to die for! A must have, for sure! Well, I could go on all day with all the things that I have found that are pink and brown, but I don't have the time, and you all probably don't have the time to read all of it. Thanks for letting me share a few favorite things with you!

Adorable! You remind me of myself. I'm currently extremely obsessed with shopping for Henry. I have to force myself to do other things.
