Color Challenge

It's time for another JUGS challenge. This week I am the hostess and we are having a color challenge. This picture is from the actual bedding that I picked out for our new house, then I got it all together and decided it wasn't exactly what I wanted, so I took it back. I still really like it, but I'm going to keep my eyes open for the perfect one! i love these colors, but I have my heart set on a paisley print, so if any of you have seen a paisley bedding set let me know!

This week I kept my card very simple. I used an old and retired set from SU for my main image. I just love this set. I'm "very" behind on sending this out, but it is the thought that counts right! I couldn't be more excited about my sister-in-law having a baby! She is due in Februrary and this is their first. They didn't find out what they are having so it will be a surprise! I did send the card yesterday so it is in the mail!

Yesterday I took my kiddos to St. Louis to the zoo. I met up with some college friends and we ad a great time. Then I hit the mall and a wonderful shop on the way home. I got the kids their Christmas outfits, red, brown, and cream are the colors. The outfits are adorable! It's my mission starting back in September to find the perfect outfit. Now to get the perfect picture of them! I even got Ava some new pedipeds to match....you have to check them out here! Kale got these! If any of you have little ones and you haven't discovered pedipeds, you'll have to! These shoes are wonderful! I found them or I should say my Mom discovered them in a magazine when Ava was a baby and now she is in the biggest pair that they make! Kale is just getting started though!

Today we are heading to a pumpkin patch with some friends. It should be a lot of fun. I'm leaving Dave here to pour some concrete on our new house. You can see that progress here.... http://weimanhomesweethome.blogspot.com/!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
