That was my best attempt at typing a Justin Beiber song. Sorry if it wasn't very good.
Well, I've been bitten by the baby gear bug. My sister in law told me about this site called Zulily that's basically like Groupon but for baby stuff. (All of you current moms are probably rolling your eyes since this is "old news" but I was pretty excited about it.) Anyways, I became a member two days ago and have already bought three things. Oh. Oops. That's bad.
One of these three things is a diaper bag. Big purchase. Important purchase. Yeah yeah yeah yeah I am so so so excited about it! Like enough to repeat words multiple times. I have been hunting for diaper bags for quite some time....like maybe even before I was pregnant (hangs head in shame). One of my favorite brands is Timi and Leslie....and what do you know? They had their bags on sale the other day! Holla.
Here's what I ended up getting:
It's the Marilyn bag in Cloud Blue. Niiiiice.
It even looks good on a stroller.
I also made a run to TJ Maxx this week to see if they had anything that could potentially go in baby boy's nursery. Ya'll....I don't know what I'm going to do in this room. I honestly have no clue and I suspect that it will take a few mental breakdowns before I figure out what it should look like.
Sidenote: My mother always says that there's a fine line between creativity and insanity. I have found this to be very true throughout my life.
Anyway....as I wandered aimlessly through the overstuffed aisles....I came across THIS:
....and bought it. Along with a ceramic apple. We'll see where that ends up.
The table/chest/nightstand is made of a really manly barn board but is still pretty with the distressed mirrors and lines. At least I'm telling myself it's manly....poor little boy. He might have the prettiest bedroom in his playgroup.
I've learned something about myself since we've found out it's a boy: I'm terrible at buying boy-ish things. Terrible. Last week I was trying to get my grandfather-in-law, mother-in-law, and husband to admit that some types of floral fabrics can be manly. Like blue floral fabrics. They all said no. I'm still a little bitter about it.
I grew up in a family of girls and had a dad who could care less about the fact that he wore the same t-shirt three days in a row (and a husband who thinks pretty much the same way). I know nothing about what is stylish for a boy. I know that most of them like blue. That's it. This will truly be a learning experience.
So...for those with little boys; what do you think is stylish but still "manly" enough for a boys nursery?
Talk to you all later!
