Our baby bedding-Ladybugs!

I have had a lot of people ask what colors the nursery is going to be so I decided to post a picture of it on our blog. It is a sage green mostly with accents of black and white gingham and of course cute little ladybugs. I wanted something not too over the top girlie but just simple and sweet. Of course as I mentioned in the last post our furniture is white. We are painting the walls kind of a creamy pale yellow (if we ever get done with our bedroom to move on to working in the baby's room). The changing table has two open shelves with baskets on it. The liners of the baskets are red and white gingham and the changing pad covers I registered for are red and white gingham too. Hopefully everything will all coordinate and look great together! I will post pictures when everything is set up (hopefully that won't be too long from now).

New Crib

So here is the latest addition to our house-well technically it's still tied to the top of the car. We just bought a crib for our little one. We actually got it in white (not the color shown in the picture). We got an incredible deal. There are about 10 other girls in my office that are pregnant (that's like 15% of our workforce-amazing I know) and so we get to hear about all these great deals and events and such that are in the area. One girl got a flyer for this furniture manufacturer that had a ton of overstock (because people are buying as much from the retailers these days) and they are trying to get rid of the furniture because they have had to spend thousands of dollars on storage since their retailers aren't wanting it right now. You could only get in if you had a flyer and this gal made several copies for our office. Jarod and I went during my lunch hour today and picked out a crib-we got it more than 70% off of what it retails for! I found a website that was selling our crib and they wanted over $800! It will be beautiful in our baby's room. It is really beefy and really sturdy-we will never have to buy another crib again-this will last through every possible child and than some. I originally wanted a dropside crib but all of the ones I have seen never look as sturdy as the cribs without drobsides. I hope I don't regret that later as I am not the tallest person in the world, but I think it will work great (plus this place didn't have any cribs with dropsides).
