Welcome to another round of Thoughts for Thursday! Write about anything your little heart desires, grab a button below and link back to Natalie and I. Oh, and don't forget to hop around to other bloggers and introduce yourself. Katie wrote a great post yesterday about "getting more comments on your blog posts" and meeting other bloggers from link-up parties is a great way to do that!!
+ I came back from NYC on Monday and when I walked into Brody's nursery, this is what I saw...
Every pillow in our house had been thrown on the floor in Brody's room because Matt and his Mom were convinced that Brody had thrown a leg over the top of the crib and was trying to escape! Now, I honestly don't think this is exactly what happened. Although I don't think it will be long before he can climb out. I think they actually saw an arm in the baby monitor instead of a leg and freaked out a bit. But that's okay. I'm glad they were keeping a good eye on my child while I was gone :)
+ While I was in NY, Matt sent me a link to this Popup Crib Tent and said we will be needing one. This thing is $200 buckeroos! Do you think this is really what I want to spend my money on???? We need to figure out if he's really capable of climbing out yet or get ready to transfer him to his big boy bed (which I'm completely not ready for yet)! Has anyone else had these issues yet??? Did your children climb out of their cribs before realizing you needed to move them to a toddler bed??
+ I love shopping for the little man on the holidays. I've picked out a few cute things for my "mini Valentine" this year that I think he will like! Do you buy Valentine gifts for your little one??

+ In other news, I'm still quite devastated with the closing of Piperlime. I'm shocked! I just loved having this as an online retail option and ordered quite a bit from the shop. Their shipping and exchange policy was awesome and they have so many great brands to choose from. I read that they were trying to compete with Zappos. I mean, I love Zappos and all, but they hardly come close to comparing to one another in the fashion sense. Oh well... I guess I will be looking to Nordstrom's and Shopbop a little bit more in the future. Where do you see yourself shopping more online once Piperlime closes down???
+ Lastly, I would like to introduce my very first sponsor of the new year, Kelsey!! I'm so happy to have her and let her share a little bit more about her and her beautiful family. Plus she has a little giveaway surprise for all of you at the end :)
I'm Kelsey, at 32 year-old wife and dog-mom from Minneapolis, Minnesota

WHY I BLOG
I started Random Randts right after I got married. I really started the blog to be able to document our life - to always have it to look back on. This space has really turned into such a special hobby for me and I truly hold it near and dear!
WHAT I BLOG ABOUT
The name of my blog - really says it all!! I would consider myself more of a lifestyle blog - however, my posts can be pretty random!! I post recipes, vacation recaps, updates on our new house. I LOVE giving gifts and LOVE Christmas so I go kind of crazy in November and December! I also am VERY type A and do everything I can to keep an organized house - so those posts will show up too!! My latest interest is getting back on track with my health/fitness - so some of my posts will be geared towards that!! It's on my to-do list to FINALLY blog about our wedding this year too!!!
You never know what you're going to get when you visit my blog....that's part of the fun, isn't it?!?!
I hope you'll stop over to say hello!! Thanks so much for having me, Annie!!! :)
