Are we ready...?????

So in the final weeks before the baby arrives...we ask ourselves, are we ready? Since my first instict is to scream no, I have to somehow justify that we are ready in some ways...

Nursery...check...and on a very tight budget which is a fun challenge for me!

Dresser $25 (goodwill)-repainted, new knobs-Corner shelf $20 (craigslist)-Bench $40 (ikea)- recoverd, paintings ($30 for canvas and my time)

My nursing nook...for now...Chair $75 (craigslist), curtains $4 (goodwill), Bookshelf $25 (craigslist), lamp $29 (my fav piece! marshalls)

Clothes...???? Well they are washed and organized. I just can't put a price on having a fashionable baby boy. Diaper bag packed and ready to go...where? I have no idea, I guess I have to learn to leave the house with the baby? And thank you Mom, for the first baby gift back when we found out, the bouncy.

Crib $100 (craigslist), Bedding probably around $40 and my time, Boston flags ($20 of embroidery)


Carseat in car...check


Car...check...I know it seems silly that this makes me feel ready, but we only have one car and if you saw my earlier post my jeep was injured...happy to replace it with the #1 saftey rated car, the Acura MDX. Good thing we saved in the nursery...

I'm very impressed with your decorating talents and on such an awesome budget. I need you to come help me on a budget for decorating. Then maybe I'd get it done.
