We’re not going to redecorate the Bwun’s room at all when we have jr (and waste all that effort I made the Romgi put into it?!), but I do have a separate theme I’d like to use for her things – like bedding, crib, and art. It will just be in a space-themed room. I’ve been keeping an eye out for colorful, modern bug-themed items…but it’s a lot trickier than I thought.
Here’s an idea of something I really like:
This Crawling Critters mobile from KLTworks is fun (and, obviously, way too expensive). I had thoughts of cultivating my sewing skills, but I still haven’t finished the Bwun’s baby blanket. So. Let’s not start any big new projects yet.
Some other examples:
The problem with this print from Donnie Wright is that it’s a little too…boy-ish. I don’t want something overwhelmingly cutesy, like this, but it would be nice to find something a little more cheerful. And a little bit girly. Just a little bit.
I do kind of like this:
But what I REALLY want is to find a fun print we can frame and put on the wall. I want this style, but with bugs:
Unfortunately, I don’t know where to search – or even how to search – for such a thing. Internet friends (who I probably know in real life anyway), can you help me? Do you have any suggestions or, better yet, a link for me?

A few updates on what we’ve been up to lately, including our beach trip…
Last night we stayed in a hotel in Jacksonville, NC so we could head to the beach this morning (Greensboro is about 4 hours from the coast). Thanks to the Bwun and his anti-sleep habits, we didn’t get to leave as early today as we wanted, but we did get to a little place called Swansboro just before lunchtime. It has a historic district with lots of little shops and restaurants.
After we played in the water, I started to get hungry (thank you, jr). We packed up and found a nearby restaurant called Flipperz. In general I am morally opposed to any business that uses a Z in place of an S in their name; however, this turned out to be a good choice. The Romgi has been wanting to try soft-shelled crab, and they had a special soft-shelled crab sandwich today that he says was perfect (as was his seafood bisque). I had a blackened mahi sandwich that may be the first meal I’ve really enjoyed since we left Utah (I’m really picky lately). I liked it so much that we bought a jar of the dry rub seasoning they used on the fish, so we can bring a little taste of the coast back with us.
Only one week left in North Carolina! We drive to Washington DC next Saturday.
