Related Purchases: We actually bought some nursery-related items this week – yay! We bought the rug that I agonized over for weeks. It just arrived today and is currently hanging out in the nursery, earning its keep. I think I LOVE it!
We also bought 3 paint samples for the nursery walls – exciting!!!
Tonight we’re going to Charleston Repeats, a seasonal consignment event where we’re hoping to score lots of awesome deals. I will be sure to report back!!!
I was thisclose to buying some Easter/shower-worthy maternity dresses online yesterday, but didn’t pull the trigger. Soon!

Randomness: I got the call this afternoon that OUR CRIB IS IN AND READY FOR PICK. Shut the front door! Weeeeeeeeeee!
Scott’s Quote of the Week: He was full of it this week! Here are two of my fav lines…
#1: Me – “I don’t think love handles are normal at this stage of pregnancy. It must be the Reese’s.” Scott – “So then where do you think the jelly beans go?”
#2: Scott – “Are you sure you don’t want me to take off 12 weeks? Me – “If we can find a way for your boobies to make milk, I’d think about it (totally lying).” Scott – “Can’t we just use yours? Your Dad and I can just bottle it!” No Scott. No.
Thanks for following along…you all are so fantastic!
Charleston Mamas – I will be asking some advice of you very soon, so please check back often!
p.s. Thanks Gram for the Reese’s and JR Jelly Beans! xoxo
