take offs and landings

we went and did quite a bit of shopping this weekend! we tried to get most of the big stuff out of the way, and i think we did pretty good! i think we ended up spending about $1000.00, that is alot for one weekend but we thought that maybe there would be sales because of it being memorial day weekend.. FALSE! not on anything we wanted, but that's ok.

i absolutely LOVE the bedding, the set includes the bumper pads, the diaper storage thing that hangs on the side of the crib, the valance, the sheets, the dust ruffle and the big comforter. we also got the matching lamp and the mobile. the helicopters are my favorite.

we went looking everywhere for cribs and i tell you, they want a pretty penny. we went to a little store called cuddle haven and ended up getting one for about $400.00. most that we saw that were comparable were running for $600-700. so i think we did alright, it looks black in the pic but it's really a dark brown called espresso.. takes me back to my eintiens days.

and our final purchase was our travel system stroller. i checked out all the graco's and we just really like the simplicity of this chicco one. everything snaps in and out really nicely and i love the bright green color.

so now the major purchases we have left to make are: a dresser/changing table and a rocker/glider.

our purchases include:
1. our crib:




2. our crib bedding:




3. our "travel system" aka stroller, car seat and car seat adapter:

I love the stuff you got! I know it seems overwhelming to have to get all this stuff but you'll get a lot of it at showers so don't go too crazy yet! I'm so excited for him to get here!
