In the midst of all the election blog posts that are sure to come pouring in at any time - either proclaiming that the second coming is going to be ushered in even sooner because the voice of the people voted for the "evil" side OR the "HAPPY DAY - we are FINALLY going to see some change around here - take that republicans!!" posts - I am going to ask for your opinion about something VERY important to me. =) Haha!

I found a diaper bag at Babies R Us that is normally $64 but was on sale for $29. I like it because it's simple but has LOTS of pockets and room but doesn't seem too big. Problem?? It is brown with pink lining. My thoughts were that I could get away with it because I also have 2 girls and I'M a girl but Nathan says no. It must be blue. Or some other boy color. I sort of see his point but what do you think??
And I'm sorry. I shouldn't have been sarcastic about the elections. I guess I just fall somewhere in between and didn't really like either of the presidential options. So - for you McCain voters (and I have to say I voted McCain) I'm sorry that the election didn't go your way - but at least it's looking good for the Props in AZ and CA - right?? And for you Obama supporters - get out there and celebrate! If it were me - I'd hit up the local DQ and get a nice big BLIZZARD. But since I'm on the losing side I think I'll stay home and sit on my couch all day and stare at things. Actually, that's what I would do anyway because I can't move very well! Maybe someone could bring me a blizzard and I will join you in your rejoicings? I would like a Kelyn creation - Oreo cookie, cookie dough, and cocoa fudge - and please make it a medium. Thanks!!

I'd totally bring you a Blizzard if only my house weren't infested with nasty bugs and I had to do all my laundry. Sigh...In fact I could use a Blizzard too. Hurrah for Blizzards. :)
Meanwhile, of course you can have a pink diaper bag!!! You're a girl! At least that's the justification I used when I refused to get something boyish with my second boy - I mean, I don't turn into a boy just because I can't seem to make any other ind of children. :) Besides, you're preggo, you get to choose. Names, diaper bags, strollers, you name it. I think you earn that right once you've been aching for months. Hope the wind-down stretch goes well!

Hugs

Ummmm.....boys and their opinions. I say go for it! First of all, your a girl and you are going to be carrying the bag. So go with what you like. And plus, brown matches almost everything! Now if it were clothes he would be wearing, thats where I would say, yea, go with the blue! I say do it! And I wish I lived close to you! I would totally bring you a blizzard and enjoy one with you. MMMMM. My mouths watering just thinking of it!

Hi! You don't know me, but my hubby knows your hubby, I think.

The way I see it, it is YOUR diaper bag, so choose whatever color YOU would like to carry! Sounds like a good deal too! Go for it!

I say get it! I know lots of people that have girly diaper bags and have boys. That's because you are a girl. The baby isn't carrying it, you are.

Brittney said...

I totally love the bag! you so should get it. It doesnt matter if you are having a boy. If it was your first then maybe but you have 2 girls already and will be holding some of their stuff too:) So get it you will look so stylish! And I would totally bring you a blizzard if I lived there:) Love you! I cant believe you are going to have a baby in like 3 days! Aaaaah!!!

that's funny about the politicalness, i personally don't think it matters because you are a girl and you are carring it around so you should be the one who likes it most.

It's a BROWN diaper bag. (with a little pink on it) I say it works for a boy. Well, at least for you to put a boy's stuff in. Go buy it! (Sorry Nate! But hey, with all the girly stuff of his sisters' your son will be playing with, a brown diaper bag is the least of your worries. :) )

Sarah said...

Oh, I say go for the fabulous bag. Maybe you can get a permanent marker and color all the pink piping blue or some other "manly" color.
A great bag at a great deal is too hard to pass up.

Summers Camp said...

I completely agree with YOU! Bottom line: if you like it, get it :) Hope that helps. *B

Tairi said...

I agree with you on all the political stuff!
I almost always have girly diaper bags, and no baby girls for me. I say whoe cares. Your a girl! I'd bring you a blizzard too but.....maybe I coud send you one???

Oh Brittanie... I meant to call you today to tell you that I wasn't going to make it to your shower tonight and that I was thinking about you, but the day got away from me and now it is ending and I never called.

I wanted to be there SOOOO bad and I even have a present for you (and the babe) but Kyle is out of town on and interview and the shower was right at Ben's bedtime... and if I came I would have had to bring him and he would have been a cranky monster and ruined your party. I am really sorry I couldn't come party -- I am bummed.

Can I come visit you in the next day or two and bring your gift? Are you free Friday? Maybe I will call you... that will be easier. I hope you don't think I am a jerk... I just love bedtime. :)

P.S. When I was picking out a diaper-bag I honestly didn't think about whether if the baby was a boy or a girl I just thought about what I wanted to carry as my bag. I don't think it really matters... its your purse/bag, the baby's stuff just happens to be in it. Nate take a chill pill... the bag it hot. :)

John and Anna said...

Hey Britt,
I think you should get it and my husband disagrees. I have to say, though, I have two boys and our current diaper bag is black with white flowers....Maybe you could have that brown and pink one for outings you'll be taking him on (aka for you) and a more masculine one for your husband? Half the time I just stick a diaper and some wipes in my purse anyway. Good luck!
Love ya, Anna

Tim and Amy said...
