Furniture: This is a post with no words.

This post comes with a crappy giveaway. The first person to leave a comment below with a correct guess of what inspired the title will get a $5 gift card to Caribou, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf or whatever your fave coffee place is.

Yeah it's a tiny little prize but it's so no one cheats via Google or such and because I'd really just want to buy a drink for the winner but if you don't live in the Twin Cities it might be hard to meet up.


  1. I have no idea... but where is the wood monkey thing from?

  2. design public, I think it's the birch one but the birch looks horrible on their site

  3. We have monkeys all over my son's room. I'm gonna check that out too. I have a guess at the 'no words' thing, but I'll keep it to myself since I'm in FL. I don't want to ruin the contest.

  4. It is wordless Wednesday but the inspiration from the title comes from somewhere else.

    It may be a bit obscure...maybe too obscure.

    Anyone can win because I'll throw the giftcard in the mail.

  5. I have a couple questions :o) Can you tell me where you got the white shelves from and the cubes? I'm in the process of a baby room myself and I like how you did the cube set as a changing area. Thanks!

  6. no words because your stuck in the waiting game and trying to stretch your baby room post out as much as you can...that's all I can think of! only two more workdays this week, thank God, b/c my brain is starting to shut down. cute room!

  7. Stacey..tomorrow I'm gonna do a bit of a write up on what's in the room but the shelves and cubes are both from Ikea.

  8. Ok I still haven't seen my guess so I'm going to try to comment again because I just
    NEED TO KNOW. I am thinking of the David Crosby song "a song with no words" (or at least I think that's the title and I think it's a Crosby song? Not allowing myself to google it!)

  9. Hey man, it's been a day so I'll take a guess now.
    Does the "no words" have anything to do with Ikea furniture assembly instructions?

    Check out my post named "going green" I"ll tweet it to you. I had a moment of insanity with the changing table.

  10. I like the idea of the furniture assembly, especially since it's a lot of Ikea...but that's not it.

    I also realized that not only is it obscure but it's obscure within it's obscurity...

    So if no one guesses by next Wednesday I'll announce the disappointing answer and if anyone comes close they will get the underwhelming prize...

  11. I'm a music person so I'd say the title is inspired by Songs without Words by Mendelssohn. Other than that I have no clue.

    Love the nursery. Very clean and peaceful looking.

  12. OK so the real answer was there is a song called Furniture by Fugazi, a fave punk band of mine. The first lyric in the song is "This is a song with no words." It's one of my favorite songs.

    Like I said it was super obscure...but parentinginprogress was the first comment that was close so I'll send her the crappy prize.

    Here's a link to a live version of the song

  13. I should also mention that I liked the other guesses too...thanks all.

  14. Hi kenny, cool blog. Like this post with no words - right up my alley :)

My hundredth post: seriously a clips post?

In my last post I mentioned I was working on getting some celebs for this post. I was in talks with the quarterback of the Saints whatever his name is...I'm sure I could look it up. I was also trying to get Conan...those talks were going really well but then NBC squashed it. There were more but the moral is it's just me. So I thought I'd do a clips post to show my journey from dude who was scared of kids to dad. If you're new to my blog this will be a CliffsNotes version of what you missed. If you've been checking it out for awhile think of this as a best of. And since a blog can't work like a TV show if you want to get the full clip show experience you'll have to click through to the posts...but this will give you the gist. In the beginning...Staci and I wanted to have a child but we both had totally different experience with kids. Kids have always been magically attracted to her...which is probably why she is so great at her career as a Montessori teac

Giveaway Gear Thursday: Paper Culture ($25 coupon code)

Gear Thursday is back this week with a giveaway from a great company called Paper Culture and I'm giving away $25 coupon codes to two different winners. I found Paper Culture on my search for some really well designed birth announcements. Being a designer I probably should have designed them myself but the chaos of a new baby made that impossible. When I saw their announcements I was psyched...we ordered the one below. We were super happy we went with them over some of the other places we've found. A few reasons for that...their designs are great and pretty much the style I would have designed, they are printed on really nice stock (a matte 130lb thick paper), the cards have rounded corners which makes them look nicer and real people lay out your cards. That last one was kind of important to me. You plug in your info and a designer lays it out and sends you a proof in a couple days. You can OK it, make a change or decide not to go with it...there is no obligation. Everyon

Another guest post

I did a little guest post a bit ago for , the post is below the original pre-amble. If you head to you can see a little guest post I wrote. It's about being a daddy blogger in the midst of a bunch of mommy bloggers. The post is kicking off Tiffany's new site. It used to be called Feels Like Home but then some other blogger felt that she owned the name because she was thinking about to registering the name...even though really the name comes from a song. And I think it's pretty ridiculous that the other woman threatened a law suit because of this. And that BS and some other twitter high school antics lead me to one of my greatest literary feats...a little rant on twitter. The image is below, if you click on it you can read the whole goes from the bottom up. A little warning if you read it...there may be an f-bomb or 20...and now it's in the Library of Congress...awesome. Here's the post from When Tiffany ask
