With less than 100 days to go until Baby Crabb arrives, the pilot and I are doing our best to get things done around the house.  Our number one priority is the nursery.  While many people have informed me that baby probably won't even sleep in the nursery for a few months so we have more time, we are too gosh darn excited and love working on our baby's room.

Everyone has been asking us what the theme is.  Well, I am a brat and do not like any of the gender neutral crib sets, plus the items included in them are practically useless (bumper, comforter, etc.) but that is another topic.  So we decided to go with a "you are my sunshine" meets "airplane" room with bright colors that will work for a boy or girl.

Here are some photos we found online that gave us inspiration:

Blue walls with cloud decals...

 But a brighter blue color like this...


 And one yellow wall with a decal "You Are My Sunshine" that the crib will be on...

 Except, it will be a brighter yellow like this...

And finally bright lime green and orange accents.

Of course, we will sprinkle in airplane stuff throughout. Since we are going rouge on the "theme," it has been difficult to find things that fit into the room that are gender neutral.  Ok, maybe the real reason it is a difficult task is because I am picky.  Nonetheless, I found that the best thing to do was to create pieces myself.  I will keep you posted on some of our projects as we go!
