Very happy

I have to share that I woke up this morning to check and see if I had any sweet comments from my very personal post yesterday. I was very hurt and felt very rejected not to see any. I knew I had switched it so that comments had to be accepted by me before posting but I didn't see any to approve. (I did this because I am not getting e-mails when I get a new comment even though I am signed up to.) I was feeling very alone until I realized I had 11 sweet comments from all of you! Thank you so much, I was in tears as I read your encouraging words.

Hubby and I had a baby shower to attend this weekend so that granted a much loved trip to Babies R' Us. (Only I really attended, the boys all went to a different location and payed Halo.) While there I saw that they only had 5 green bins left and only one or 2 of the other colors, I had originally wanted white as I mentioned in this post but they were all out. Hubby thought I was so silly for wanting these so early and tried to convince me that by the time we have kids I won't want them anymore so I didn't get them. A few days later though I was in the area and was being drawn back to the bins. I compromised and said if they have 4 left I will get them. I am now the proud owner of 4 green bins!!
I brought them in from my trunk today and put them with my other baby box stuff to see how they match and I am SO happy. I was a little worried they would be too bright. I think they will be perfect in the upper part of our changing table. What do you think?



I have stumbled across these items and have loved them so much I knew that when I had kids I would be sad if I didn't have them. The towels are 2 full sets (so 4 total) from TJ Max that look just like pottery barn towels. I got them for $15 a set rather than $25 for just one bath towel!! The green matches perfectly. The other are things from Target about a year ago and I am still SO glad I picked them up. I get told a lot that I am jinxing myself but I know that God already knows the desires of my heart and it isn't going to make a difference if I have a few things already. He already knows I have wanted to be a mother since I was born.

Won't the green bedding go great with this?

This was my God daughter's and they just gave it to us, I need to find a good place to store it. Look at how tall it is next to our dvd rack and it is sturdy enough for a child to ride. It can even hold me!

That baby furniture that you have is adorable!! You'll be able to do so much with it!! And the green bins are precious!! And I absolutely love the elephant theme that you picked (I'll be going with little lambs : )

I don't think you are jinxing yourself, I think it's a good idea not to mention frugal, how much money are you saving by buying stuff little by little now, you know!!? Have a great day!!
