We are a couple of lucky ducks!

Those of you loyal blog readers may remember a while back when we missed the opportunity to buy an awesome glider from Costco. Well, we went out to lunch after church with a friend who had never been to Costco. Lunch for a buck 50 can't be beat, so hot dogs it was. While meandering the aisles I told her about our disappointment with the chair. After we finished exploring, we back tracked to find Joshua. Low and behold, there on the end of an aisle all boxed up was one and only one of the very glider we loved! And better yet, it was $60 less than the last time we saw it!!! I sat on the box so nobody could sneak away with it while Joshua got a cart. Wahoo! Getting it into the car was not such a lucky story. It just wouldn't fit. But, Heather offered the use of her minivan to transport it. A fair pay back for the $1.50 lunch I think. :) So now I am home sitting in the living room with chair parts all around me waiting for Joshua to get home and get it assembled. I'm so excited to try it out!

We spent all day Saturday painting the baby's room. We decided to use a pale green on three walls and yellow on the wall with the window. Now all we need is a crib, sheets, car seat, stroller, diapers, .... you get the idea. :)

Craig's List was a great resource for us for our crib for Ainsley. We got the Jenny Lind one for Aubrey, with mattress we were still under $200.

Tara, I am having a shower in So CA March 30. Would you like to be invited? :) Now I sound like I just want your present .... that's unfair - I was set up!

It's totally weird to me that you have a friend that has NEVER been in Costco. Has she been living in a cave? :)

Also, congrats on the glider! I hope it's everything you wished for. I use mine all the time. Caden still likes to be rocked in it.

I was also going to say to take advantage of browsing through Costco, because it's hard to browse with kids. But then I thought better if it. Costco is the one place that you can always browse. Kids love free samples! :)
