Bedding for Archer

I've looked and looked for bedding that isn't super cheesy and it doesn't seem possible. For girls, they have some great options, for boys not so much. It's either too cartoony or too frilly. Either way, not for us so we've been looking at Etsy for some custom bedding.

and I've finally made the decision to go with 

Arrows w/Marine teal/blue piping for the bumpers

Maine teal for the crib sheet 

and the arrows for the changing table mattress 

My MIL is making a white crib skirt and then we'll throw together a bunch of special pieces for the walls. We are already hunting for random arrows and random pieces to make it awesome.

Diaper Bag

I finally found me a diaper bag I can live with and it's actually something I would like anyway. It's by Timi and Leslie. I just got it in the mail and love it. It's an awesome color and lots of room for everything we'll need to stuff in there. There's an option to make it a backpack as well. All of the other bags I saw were too girly or plastic. I understand the need for plastic, but it's just tacky to me. Sign up for Amazon Mom/Prime and get 20% discount, too!
