Note from my Husband

It appears I can't stay away from this blog for long :)  So... I'm baaaccccckkkkkkkkk  :)

My husband and I picked out a crib and dresser set, but we wanted to use a 20 percent coupon from Babies R Us.  If you make a purchase at that store, along with the receipt, a coupon prints out.  So, we bought a blanket that was on clearance and got the coupon.

When Greg took home the blanket, he said, "Take a picture of the first gift we bought for our son."

After placing an order for the crib and dresser, we went to Home Depot to pick out a color for the baby's room.  We went with "Cool Sky" - a pretty baby blue color.  The next day, I walk in the hallway and find this attached to the closed door of what will be the baby's room.

Hehe.  My husband is "nesting" and wanted me to be surprised with the color once the entire room was painted.  How sweet is that  :)

Greg is a prankster, isn't he? You will never have many sad days with him again. Glad you're back. Write when you feel like it and ignore it when you want to do anything else.

Greg is one of a kind - absolutely sweet. Oh what an exciting time for you both. You will be surprised and how fun it is going to be decorating the room too. At least you know the right colour!

And I am so pleased you are back too. Even if you don't have too much time to blog, just stop by every now and then and let us know how things are going. We will all be looking forward to seeing the colour now of the nursery.

Feet up and relax, the next half of your journey will go all too quickly.

Aleta said...

Life Happens ~ Cool giveaway! Love the pictures on your blog post :)

Glynis ~ Ohhhhh yes, Greg is a prankster! You would laugh if you heard all the pranks he and his friends did when they were younger.

Lilly ~ I realized the other day I reached the mid-way mark of the pregnancy. It was a surprise to me. Really, where did the time go?

DysFUNctional Mom ~ It’s great to be back :) We were surprised to find that blanket on clearance.

Tammie ~ I’m eager to see the crib and dresser and everything put together. Hopefully our son will grow to love Winnie the Pooh, as that is the baby’s room theme :)

Thanks Everyone! I thought I’d just quietly reopen my blog and hoped someone might stop by. Wow. Thank you so much for the warm welcome back. Ya’ll are awesome. *hugs*

YAY!!! I'm glad you are back!

We had my sister's shower yesterday. Holy PINK!!! I, of course, found the girliest, laciest, frilliest outfit to give her, knowing she's totally hate it!

Candice said...

Glad you couldn't stay away :)
