Nursery purchases

Well I may have been pretty absent from my blog over the last few weeks, but my credit card has been working hard!

K and I (ok, who am I kidding, mostly me) finally picked out and ordered a bunch of stuff for the baby's room. I'm giddy to start putting it all together. That is, after I finish painting the million inches of crown molding and window trim throughout the house - but that's a story for another day...

Anywho - here is what I've picked up:

This rug from PB. I went with the 5x8, which is little on the small side - but I'm hoping with all the furniture in, it will look fine.

Our glider from Room and Board. It was kind of a splurge - which is why I waited so long to get it. But I actually think it's cute enough that I can move it to another room in the house when baby outgrows the nursery. Of course, it won't be here until a week or so before baby is due. Just call me the queen of procrastination. :)

And I actually didn't get the ottoman. I got this super fun one instead. (I had a hard time gliding in the chair if I used the ottoman.) I need something more stable.

I found this picture a few months ago - and it's what gave me the idea. (Well the photo planted the idea. the fabulous Becki at SMC gave me the nudge I needed. Thank you Becki!)

Now, the closer I look at it - the more I think that's my glider in the picture...

I also picked up the bedding I think I like from RH Baby and child. But, I didn't want a white crib skirt - so I mixed and matched sets. I have NO idea if I'll like it when it actually gets here. We'll see. But since I'm just not sure how I feel - and Target was offering free shipping. I went ahead and pick up this set as well.

I actually like it a LOT better in person than in the picture. It's a really pretty light blue.

So, again. We'll see. One set HAS to go back.
