a of all) i redesigned my blog again. yes, i need an intervention. b of all) if you let me design yours i'll stop redesigning mine so much.
this post is about two of my boy's new favorite things. stuffed animals and their new banner in their all-grown-up-and-in-bunk-beds-now room. if i'm being honest, stuffed animals and banners might be two of my favorite things as well. i wouldn't be lying if i told you that when i was thirteen i begged for my room to re-designed in the theme of 101 dalmatians. and then i proceeded to try to find every single one of the 101 in stuffed animal form for my bed. it was really lovely, black, white, and polk dotted. don't be too jealous. and, obviously, it is a personal goal of mine to have at least one bunting, garland, banner, or so on and so forth, in every room in our room in our house. i have almost reached that goal. thankyouverymuch.
hullabalu sent me these a-freakin-dorable stuffed animals for the boys. i actually had such a hard time deciding which ones to get them. caleb and i scrolled through the selection, and hemmed and hawed, like it was one of life's greatest decisions. for brody: this hedgehog. i am sort of obsessed with hedgehogs. they are the new bird. put a hedgehog on it. i feel that i would have let myself, and my family, down if this round fella was not one of the chosen ones.
and for foster: this fox! are you dying? foster makes this EXACT face. so there was no question that they were meant to be. coy little pairing these two are. the descriptions of the stuffed animals on this site kill me. read them for yourself right here. the words make me want to purchase a stuffed animal even more than i already do from looking at them. hullabalu will be launching a brand new toy line soon, with whimsical characters who have hysterical, and fantastical, story lines. don't miss it!
now, be on your merry way and get your kid, or yourself, a new cuddle buddy.

i first saw cardboard sheek on my girl, em's blog. and fell.in.love. as a mama to boys, i am always searching for decorations are lovely and boyly (as opposed to manly) all at the same time. sarah, at cardboard sheek, offered me just that.
sarah creates all of her banners entirely out of cardboad. i am more than impressed with her skills. the details, the colors, and twine. i love it all. it's perfect for the boy's room and they love it just as much as i do.
the boys have moved into bunk beds and had some other changes in their room since i last showed it you. i plan on taking more pictures and doing a new post on it soon. one day, when i am not either lazy or busy, i will do just that. until then, go ahead over to cardboard sheek and banner-fy your house.
that's all for now, folks.
