Baby Name and Fall Giveaway

Congratulations! A handful of you guessed our (or should I say, "my") "W" name! However, it is not growing on Cody as quickly as it has grown on me. I have been thinking about this name for over a year and love it so much but I just cannot convince Cody. :( My "W" name was:



Went
(Short for Wentworth)


Isn't it so cute?! Cody kept saying something about him being beat up on the playground or something like that. :)
I guess it is partly his choice too so he should have a say. :) However, with all of your wonderful guesses I think we have agreed on a boy name! I read every one's guess to Cody and one really stuck out to both of us. Our NEW "W" name is:

West
(Short for Westin)


I guess I can compromise with this name. It is, after all, just one letter different. :) I really do like it and I'm happy that we have a boy name that we both agree on. Now I'm sure we will have a girl since we have absolutely NO ideas for a girl's name.

Anyway, on to the most important part! This post is really for you! It is fall giveaway time! I put my fall decorations out this past weekend and pulled out three items that I have enjoyed in the past but am ready to pass on to someone else.

The first thing in the giveaway is this cute jack-o-lantern chalkboard. I bought this the first year of our marriage and have enjoyed it ever since.


Also in the giveaway is this cute little pumpkin arrangement. It is a great size to set out just about anywhere.

The last thing in the giveaway is this frame. I added the pumpkin picture to it but you could put anything you want in there.

How do you enter? Just leave a comment on THIS post and I will use random.org to pick a winner sometime Wednesday night. If you do not have a blog you may still enter but make sure you leave your email address. I will have to delete all comments that do not have any way for me to contact you. Good luck!!

Awww! I love both names! Men are pains when it comes to picking out baby names aren't they? They hardly ever agree on the names we like! But you two seemed to have decided on one and its cute!

I'd love to enter for giveaway! I've never won anything before - EVER... sad huh? LOL. Everything your giving away is cute as ever!

Amanda said...

I really like the name West!! Best wishes on the girl names...I think picking out a girl names is easier than boys, then again its hard because there are so many precious girl names!!

I love the cute fall decorations and would love to win so I could add some cuteness to my home this fall!! :)

Alex and Jill said...

I love the boy name you have chosen! But you know that my guess is a girl, so get to thinking on a name. ;)

Love the giveaway...especially the frame!

And lastly, it makes me smile to see the pregnancy counter on your sidebar!!! God is so good.

mrs boo radley said...

I think West is cute.

But I prefer an 'o' (so, Weston) at the end instead of the 'i' in Westin. My little sister has a friend named Weston and he is so cute!

Melanieshea said...

Love the names! Glad you have a boy name! Can't wait to hear the girl names! :o)

Love your fall decor especially the chalk board! SO CUTE!

Happy Monday

Paige said...

Too cute! My brother is Wes and everyone always thought is name was West because of the southern drawl.

The Gardella's said...

Megan said...

What I a great giveaway!! I love Fall decorations!! I also love the name West!

Roxanne said...

I have to agree that "Went" might get a child picked on, but I love the name "West." It sounds perfect!

Maybe for girl names you should pick a letter and let everyone guess again!

Summer said...

I love the name West.. How cute... and if ya happen to have a girl let me throw Hadley at ya... I love that name...

Holly said...

West is a cute name...we have friends that have a little boy by that name and he likes to call himself 'wild, wild, West'!
Here's hoping that some of your giveaway good-luck rubs off on me!

Sarah said...

I love the names--either one! It was so hard with us with names too, although we had a girl's name, just not a boy's!

Cute fall stuff!!!

Stacy said...

I think Wes is very cute! What is with men? They can always come up with a school yard variation of a name.Must be a boy thing!! LOL

Sarah said...

West is such a cute name! Unusual, but not too out there! Our first little boy was easy to name, but we struggled on finding a name we both agreed on for our second!

Shayla said...

What a CUTE name!!!

Good Luck finding some girl names :)

I love that jack o lantern chalk board, so fun!!!!

The Hensons said...

I love the name West. Love the fall giveaway, especially the pumpkin chalkboard. I hope I win!!

Heather said...

I love both names :-) I wish my husband was like yours, we can't agree on any names! :-)

Chalkboard pumpkin is too cute, my little boy would love to get ahold of it! haha

duchess said...

I'm so glad you ended the suspense. You've both picked a great name - it sounds strong.
Thanks for the giveaway - they're all cute.

Nate, Abbey and Noah said...

Names are sooo hard! We just named our girl (due in Jan) and we have a boy so we have had both genders to decide on, really hard. Love the name! Congrats!

rueyes03 said...

Congratulations on your little one! I grew up with a Westin in school, but never thought about calling him West! Very cute and original!

Vashti said...

I really like the names. Love the give away items...you do have the best taste.
love V xx

Traci B said...

I love your fall decorations! I wanted to decorate this weekend but it's still 90 degrees in Baton Rouge & I just can't do it until it feels a little bit like fall!! BTW - I love the name West!

MaryBeth said...

Love the name. I have a friend who always said she wanted to use the name West for a boy. Then she got married...and her new (married) last name was West! Ha!

Camille said...

I love both names! My sister named her son Wentworth! He is ten months old. Better start thinking of cute girl names!

Megan said...

I love the name! And what a great giveaway!

Congratulations on your pregnancy! LOVE the name West...I'm with you on this journey...12 weeks pregnant with our 3rd baby :) I've always enjoyed your blog, but now it's extra special because I kinda feel like we're in this boat together!! ;) Thanks for a chance to win such cute stuff! hitchedathenrys(at)hotmail(dot)com

Ruby Red Slippers said...

I love both names-I think I like West a tiny bit more-but just a tiny bit!
Please enter me for the giveaway...I have been decorating for fall,and have hit a 'decorating road block'... I think that means I need a few more things!!!
Ps. I never came up with a girls name either, and look now-I have three boys...think of a girls name quick!!!

joelandbecca said...

OK, I am commenting! Yay! I will keep my fingers crossed! But, I was thinking of commenting anyway!

I love both of those names. I love playing the name game, but unfortunately I have a zillion girl names I love and not many boy names. Not that I should worry! Our baby is still a baby, and I don't want to get preggo anytime soon! I guess girls always play that game. Pregnant or not!

Anyhoodle, I love those names! West is super cute. I am so happy for ya!

Sherri's Southern Style said...

Such a cute name! Good and strong, just like a boy:)

Cute fall decor - I want to win!!

Casey and Amy Bough said...

Love the chalkboard pumpkin. REally cute.

talesandtrials said...

Love both of your baby names! What are you considering for a girl? My husband and I had our boy named picked out four years before we were ever pregnant!

I would love to win your fall decor giveaway. That pumpkin chalkboard is too cute Shannon! I sure you can part with it? :)

Christina said...

I like the name West a lot. I just bought a baby name book, since we find out what we are having October 13th. :)

Jenny said...

I love both names!!!!!!! I can't wait to hear what you're having...you and I should find out pretty close together. I'm totally betting BOY for myself!

I'd loooove to be apart of your giveaway! Happy Fall!

Elizabeth said...

I really like both of the boy names, but West is too cute! Definitely a great choice! I love your blog and design ideas...
I'd love to enter the giveaway..Have a great day!

Amber B. said...

Those are both great names! I really love West. Very cute! I think you guys are doing well to have decided this early in the pregnancy. My bro-in-law and his wife had a baby last Thursday and JUST decided the name. haha!!

Twice as Nice said...

I just LOVE uncommon names. When we named our son Logan Gage he was the only Logan but now almost 14 years later there are more and more. We have a Westin on our football team but that is the only one I know. Hope I win :o) just love the chalk board.

Shelby said...

So fun to be joining you on your pregnancy journey! :)

hi-d said...

I am glad you "went" with West. I like that name better. We have a car dealership in our neck of the woods called "Wentworth Chevrolet." ha ha...

I really like the name West or Weston. Actually if you have a girl you could even name her that. I know a girl in 1st grade with that name. :)

I have some cute girl names, but not sure I want to share them, in case I ever have kids...ha ha...I guess it doesn't matter.

Justin and Jenn said...

I always love your decorations!! I love that chalkboard and the frame. And I love the name Westin- it's my cousin's name. VERY cute!

HeathahLee said...

I guess since West is short for WestIn and my guess was WestOn, I sort of guessed it right! Okay, maybe that's stretching it. : ) But West is a CUTE name!

And I love all those fall things! But, you don't have to include me in the giveaway. If my husband catches me bringing me one more autumn thing into the house he will throw it all out! : )

I think picking out names is one of the most difficult things we have done in our marriage!
Cute Halloween giveaway.

Mrs. Jenk said...

Hi Shannon- I think boy names are much harder to decide upon. Men have a hard time committing to a boy name. Girl names will come easier because cute is the focus :) Good luck!

Allison said...

Love the baby name!!!
Pick me to win.

The Vintage Modern Girl said...

love both names, but especially West!!

Christie in Dallas, TX said...

West -- what a great name! choosing a name that your child will have forever can be daunting, but you have chosen well!

Cute giveaway -- what fun "fallish" things!

The Collier Family said...

coming out of lurking...
Just to say...

Your "nest" will be "blessed by West"... LOL! Anyway... it's too cute! (and so are the giveaways, especially the pumpkin!)

Rambling Girl said...

Love both the names! Hysband...sometimes hard to please but I am sure you two will find something beautiful for a beautiful child you will be having.

When I was prego with all of my children...I always knew what I was having so I picked for that gender...so glad I got all of them right...3 out 3 not bad picking on what you are having.


Oh pick me or tell the random to pick me...you have the cutest giveaways Shannon. Congrats on your tassel you won. I saw where you won one this past week...

I love names that are different!! I have a Hudson and a Jasper! It took my husband a while to get used to Hudson, but it grew on him. I wanted Jasper to be Hampton, but I did not win that battle- with Jasper being a family name. Good luck to you!!

~Ashlea~ said...

Love both of those names! I really like names that are different and not too commonly used. I just saw your pregnancy ticker on the sidebar and realized that you are exactly 2 weeks behind me. I turned 16 weeks on Sunday. It will be neat to follow along and "compare" what we are going through.

Oh, and of course I love givaways too!

Love all the cutsie things in your give-a-way!

Meg said...

West is adorable! It took my husband and I a lot of time to pick out a boy name, we thought girl names were much easier.

I love reading your blog, you have tons of decorating ideas. I'm super inspired to start back working on our house.

I do love both names, but West is my favorite of the two. Yes, you will most certainly have a girl since you have spent so much time on a boy name :)

Thanks for the giveaway - always fun.

Vanessa said...

Shannon! Both are lovely names! It was hard to pick a girl's name... I had in mind Lucca cause I was 100% it was going to be a boy... it turned out she was a girl. Then, hubby was watching the moon one night and said out loud Luna! Her name is Luna! Sending my love your way. All the best! Vanessa

Nicole @ BugaBoos said...

I love both names! I really like west! My husband and I had a hard time naming both of our sons, both were nameless until hours before leaving the hospital!

3LittleByrds said...

Shannon, I LOVE both names. You couldn't go wrong either way. Deciding on names together is so hard. We always had a much easier time with boys names than girls. Dawson was easy, then came Ansley and we had a boy name for her Sawyer but when we found out she was a girl we me and the hubby couldn't agree. I wanted Ireland or Ainsley. He wasn't having Ireland and he wasn't crazy about Ainsley but finally said I like Ansley so Ansley it was. Then with Ireland we had Sawyer again for a boy or Sullivan or Adler then when we found out she was a girl we said here we go again. I was still set on Ireland and the hubby wasn't. We finally decided on Adalie or possibly Ireland then hubby said let's flip a coin on it( I know so bad to decide that way but a interesting story to tell her) and well Ireland Reeve won time and time again. Love the giveaway. Such cute stuff.

Momofgirls said...

Cute names!! I think West will be one tough cookie on the playground, too!!

I've never won anything, but it is worth a try!!

Happy Fall!!! (it is going to be 104 degrees here tomorrow..ugh!)

Deciding on names is so fun, isn't it! I like Westin, my husband's middle name is Westby-unusual right.
I love the frame with the lil pumpkin, how cute is that!

Sunny said...

Cute name! Hey, I have a girl's name for you....SUNNY!!!!!!! HAAAAA! Seriously, I have loved my name my whole life and there aren't many of us. It also helps that I have a huge smile and constantly get the comment that I live up to my name. LOL Okay, really seriously this time, you know what I have to do to help me on baby names?!? Call it out loud like I'm calling them in for supper! ;)

I love Went! That is so cute. There is an actor named Wentworth Miller and he is BEAUTIFUL!!!! So, I could totally see you having a beautiful little boy named Went! However, I also saw the name West in your guesses when I was leaving my comment and love that name too! I even mentioned it to Jeremy. I have a cousin named Weston also.

Oh yes, and I LOVE that pumpkin chalkboard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would love to win that. Maybe you could split the giveaway into 3 prizes and make sure that I win the pumpkin! LOL!

Congrats on figuring out a baby name. Sometimes getting an agreement from your hubby is the hardest part!

Lana said...

I love the name "West"...I think it is so pretty! I even mentioned it to my husband! :)

I'd love to enter the giveaway! Those fall items are so cute!

Jenny Rose said...

I love, love, love the name Westin- and it is one of the few boy names my husband and I have ever agreed on. lol! And West is adorable as a nickname! Boy names are so hard and husbands are so hard at getting to agree to them! =) We would have been in trouble had our daughter been a boy- we still can't come together on one!

The giveaway is great! Pick me please! =) jen_michelle@hotmail.con

Jilly said...

I love West! I found out this weekend that my cousin is pregnant! She and her husband have been married for four years and have been trying forever to conceive. Her parents have known all summer, but they just finally told the rest of the family. She's fifteen weeks... just about like you! The doctor accidentally told her what the baby is, but she and her husband are keeping it top secret. It's driving everyone crazy!

I would love to win your giveaway. I love your style!

country farmhouse said...

Baby names are difficult to agree on. My husband and I could only agree to one boy name and one girl name. Thankfully that's what the Lord gave us - one of each. Olivia and Ethan.

Good luck with the baby names! I'm due in November, and my hubby and I had decided on a boy name early on, but no girl name... Of course I am having a girl and we still can't agree :)
Thanks for the fun giveaway.

Very cute names! We agreed on a boys name waaaay before we agreed on a girls name for our first. Every name he suggested I would tell him it sounded like a stripper name! :oP I'm glad we ended up with 2 boys! ha ha

I like the name, it is different but not weird. I was the same way though, I was convinced I was having a boy and had the name picked out and we had a girl! I'm glad that you and your husband can agree though, we didn't agree until the very end of my pregnancy. Good luck with your pregnancy, I pray that you two are both healthy!!

Angie said...

Shannon,
I LOVE the names, Went is so cute and I like West too. I really like unique names.
Anyway, What a great giveaway!! I LOVE the pumpkin chalkboard so cute. My email is eichleac@oneonta.edu

Katy said...

Westin is a cute name (West, like it lots). I have a friend who named her twins Easton (boy) and Emma (girl). I know a Weston and a Winston and Wyatt. So many cute names. Oh, for the love of names. I have always loved the name, Spencer for a girl.

Giveaway: Love this stuff! Love!
