::live and learn::

I'm starting to panic a little bit. While I'm only 6 months pregnant, the impending day is looking dangerously close. So on a rampage, I finally ordered the nursery furniture and accessories all in one go.

I decided to forgo the Target/DwellStudios cribs due to low customer ratings. It was brought to my attention by Uncle M that Nurseryworks now makes a less expensive crib, the Loom Crib, for half the price of O's Aerial Crib. So we bought two cribs and the matching changing table. We also bought the gender neutral Lime/Noir Dottie bedding sets. The quality of Nurseryworks furniture is not perfect, but it is surely better than Target???

From Modern Nursery, I ordered the Happy Geese wall decal in lime/dk grey/lt grey. I also ordered a matching Tree decorative throw pillow in lime/grey. As for lighting, I ordered the Offi duckie lamp in white. Sooo cute...

Finally, my biggest offense of the day. I ordered another set of Candeloo night lights from Vessel! I know, I know, why didn't I learn?! Well, at only $39 (as opposed to $50 on other websites), I couldn't resist. More importantly, I also ordered spare batteries for O's old set to see if we can fix her pair with new parts. Fingers crossed.

Uncle M suggested the Karlstad chair and ottoman in place of the expensive Nurseryworks glider. Not bad, sort of an Eames-inspired lounge chair in grey fabric.

Now if I can only find inexpensive velvet curtains (to block out strong morning light) for the room...Uncle M????????

For Architectdad's birthday, I bought two incredible floor seats for the George Michael concert. Yup, you are correct, GM of Wham! fame.

I gotta tell ya, it was fun! We were less than 100 feet from George and he was awesome. A little wrinkly around the edges, but nothing a little tuck and Botox can't fix. The dancing was still great, although the whole we were hoping he wouldn't throw out his hips or something worse.

I believe I even saw tear welling up in Architectdad's eyes :-) Of course everyone seemed very concerned about the hugely pregnant lady...I really think they thought "Faith" was going to send me to the hospital! Funny.

George asked the audience if we remember where we were in the 80's when Wham! toured in the U.S. He joked and said that most of us probably came to the concert with our parents. I never saw them in the 80's, but I would've been only 11! Good times...
