but first… look at this little human my sister made..
he’s pretty cute and perfect and impossibly small. dane was mostly indifferent toward him, but when we let him “hold” him, he had the biggest smile on his face. it was the sweetest thing i’ve ever seen. i think i’ll lose my **** when its his baby sister he’s holding.
now onto the material things…
there has been no progress in the nursery what-so-ever, but i have been snatching up random treasures – all on sale – to eventually use in the new baby’s room. i feel like i should share with you now in case the sales don’t last and you want to get in on the action.
i hope this doesn’t come back haunt me… the fact that i don’t have a plan for what goes where… this on this wall, that on the other… i just love this neutral, geometric vibe and have been accumulating these accessories over the past few weeks in hopes i can make it all work.
and can we talk about sales? have you heard the whole “you should only buy something on sale that you would be willing to pay full-price for…?” this makes zero sense to me. yes, you can be tricked/psychologically manipulated by sales… i’m sure i have been, but i also know that i would not have paid full price for any of this stuff… and i don’t see how this means i shouldn’t be buying it on sale. i like it all. a lot. that’s why i bought it. on sale. if you would have paid full price for something, wouldn’t you – in most cases – already own it? everyone has a price they are willing/not willing to pay, right? whatever.

the purple stuff you see above, i don’t own.. i threw them in there just to mix in some plum which will be the accent color… there will be a plum accent wall, etc etc.
so i really just need a light (to replace the boob) and black-out shades for the windows. then we just need to find the time to paint and pull it all together. time time time.
to be continued.
