Glidden My Colortopia Widget and Giveaway!

I had a pretty clear idea of what the colors would be for my little boy's nursery, mostly because I didn't want to repaint (and then repainted anyway because I'm crazy) and found a good deal on a navy Pottery Barn rug on ebay. However, I know that for many moms-to-be out there, the choice of wall color, fabrics, decor, etc...can be a little overwhelming when you are already QUITE overwhelmed!  
(Hello, perfect fabric!)
I was recently contacted by Glidden to share a fun new tool on their My Colortopia site that asks you a series of questions and then shows the perfect paint colors for your little one's nursery, based on your answers.  Have you jumped on the My Colortopia wagon yet?  It is a great site that helps you choose Glidden paint colors and contains lots of helpful blog posts from favorite bloggers like Kate and Lindsay.  You can take their nursery quiz right here, using this widget!  I love technology.  
When Shaun and I took the quiz, we ended up with these results:
Considering the two main colors in our baby's room are the navy rug and gray walls, I'd say this tool was right on! You can take the quiz again and again if you aren't quite sure whether your baby will grow up to be an explorer, an artist, or a teacher....but Shaun is pretty convinced our boy will be an 'explorer' like his dad.  NOTE TO HUBBY: just because you have three Swiss army knives and a watch that tells you it's always 98.6 degrees doesn't mean you are an outdoorsman.  
You might notice that the MyColortopia quiz contains a logo for a certain pregnancy-related movie coming out today - I'm going to try to see it before I go into labor!  In the movie What to Expect When You’re Expecting (only in theaters), a couple picks out paint colors for their baby’s new nursery.  Find paint colors that you and your little one will love with Glidden® Brilliance Collection™ Paint, available at Walmart.  As you know, I'm a paint snob, so trying out this new paint and primer combo is on my list.
To celebrate the movie's release, Circle of Moms is hosting a Glidden giveaway with a chance to win a $2,500 Walmart gift card to use towards a dream nursery, for buying items such as cribs, bedding, and Glidden® Brilliance Collection™ Paint.  A prize like this would've saved me some cash!  For more information about the Dream Nursery Giveaway, visit this MyColortopia blog post.
