Kendall's Lust List

Just a few items Kendall I am lusting over for her birthday...

how cute is this tent? I can just picture it in her playroom, out in the backyard, etc as a reading corner, make believe fairytale corner, safe haven...
I love any of these for her playroom also. If only they made adult sizes as well... the whole family could have one!


this water table would be pretty awesome for summer next year.

I know I am getting ahead of myself, but how cute is this kitchen? This is just for inspiration- totally something Papa Anderson can build... Although he should probably start now for Christmas 2014!

Showering Baby Jack - Travel Theme

My sister Katie and her husband Justin are having a baby boy in just a few short weeks. Baby A's name is Jackson (Jack) Didrik A... and we all can't wait to meet him! Since my sister and J are such big travelers (both for work - lucky! and pleasure), they decided to them Jack's nursery around "travel". They have this crib and this bedding, and these letters above his crib. They also have some great airplane hangers also from Pottery Barn Kids, and a few other decorative pieces they picked up at Home Goods, Cost Plus, etc. Jack's nursery is just perfect for the little traveler he is sure to become.

In keeping with their Travel theme, my mom and I decided to theme our shower for Baby Jack around travel as well. Here are a few pictures to give you a better idea ...

Who wouldn't want mini alcohol bottles as part of their shower favor? The tags have a "J" on one side, and "Thank you" with baby booties on the other.

T.V. mix and homemade caramel corn to go with the mini alcohol bottles.

We could not be happier with how the shower for Jack turned out. I am a big believer in the little personal touches that make each event special.
