Top 2 Tuesday and Wishful Wednesday

I couldn't resist Top 2 Tuesday this week. Baby names!!! Because Hubby and I have been together 6 years we have run out of things to talk about and have started discussing baby names. Mostly we just make up ridiculous names and I fear for our future child. Let me state for the record we are not pregnant. This is all Taylor's idea to do baby names and I couldn't resist.

Please don't get offended if I don't like your name for my baby please! I wouldn't get offended if you didn't like my name or the names I like.

Hubby's initials are CMH and mine are MCH. I already have middle names picked out for boy or girl. Boy- Curtis, Girl- Marie. So if we had a boy his initials would be _CH and a girl would be _MH so I figure why not keep up the tradition and do a boy's name that starts with an M and girls name that starts with a C.

I would give my daughter my middle name, Colleen. So her name would be Colleen Marie or Colie for short. Colleen is not on the top 100 popular names for 2009 so I'm a fan. I'm very into the nickname being just as good as the name. Hubby likes the name Natalie but I don't like it because the shortened version is Nat. Hubby didn't veto Colleen like he did my all time favorite name Izabelle (Belle) so we will see. Guessing the dog will be named Belle.As a backup I made up the name Catalie. Has the C and the atalie he liked. Obvi just kidding here people. I think girls names are so much easier. There are lots of adorable girl names and others that start with C.

Now to the boys name. I am stuck on Matthew Curtis. Matt for short. It has gone down in popularity, but not as unpopular as I would like. It was number 11 in 2009. In 1990 Megan was 11th popular and I always had another Megan in class with me. Hubby has also not vetoed this.

When we were talking about names that start with M, Hubby said, "Magic for boy or girl." He was joking, but I think until we know if it is a boy or girl that is what the baby will go by.

I have around 5 friends/family members who are pregnant with boys right now. We also already have a couple little boys running around. This morning I was thinking maybe Hubby and I will go old fashioned and not find out until the little one arrives. I want to have gender neutral stuff and I don't know if something is lost when you announce on facebook what you are having and the name. Just a thought I had.

Wishful Wednesday...
This Wednesday's topic is...I wish I could have worn_________dress on my wedding day.
Obvi I cherish, adore, love my wedding dress. But it is wishful Wednesday and going online bridal gown shopping is fun! So here is what I would pick if I had to do it over again, I think. It has a lot of the elements my dress had but I think this beading would show more in pictures and is all over. I like the mermaid look too. I feel like you would need a pretty fancy wedding to wear this Lazaro dress. It was $$ at Kleinfeld's. I don't know how much that is.


  1. I love Colleen. If you had Matt and Catalie, you could have Matt and Cat. Hahahaha! Cute names and love what you're doing with the initials.

  2. I actually used to work with a girl named Colleen Marie. She was a massage therapist and totally cool so that gets my vote! I agree with the nicknames. We call Shepherd "Shep" all the time. And hubs and I have a thing about middle names since we both go by our middle names (you wouldn't believe how easy it is to spot a telemarketer when they call) so we're going to pass that on to our kids.

    As for the freaking phenomenal. But I'm with you...I LOVED my wedding dress and honestly couldn't have seen myself in anything else. My bouquet though...totally different story.

  3. Thanks for the tip! I'm definitely going to check it out.

  4. I'm glad you found my blog so I could find yours - I'm a new follower! Hmmm a "C" about Carol!!! :)

  5. Good to know :-)

    That dress is so pretty. I'm going wedding dress shopping this weekend actually!

  6. I love the name second child's middle name is Matthew.

  7. Love the wedding dress. Soo pretty. :) Your blog is cute!

  8. I don't want to know how much that dress is either! It's shocking how much wedding dresses can cost. Mine was "cheap" for being under 2k!

    Colleen is a really cute name, I love it!

  9. My husband and I both have initials that spell something. Like M.A.T. or C.R.Y. (those are just examples though) so we want to do the same thing with our children. We'll be restricted to our last names letter obviously and the potential girl name will eventually be lost when she marries but I still think it's cute!

  10. my initial spell RAH. i have a name I love but it happens to be the name of a town right next to where I live. So now i dunno

  11. Hi Megan, thanks for stopping by my blog and and wishing me well! I always love new followers and can't wait to start reading all about you:)

  12. my initials are KNK, just one letter off from being a big PC no no haha
