Here's what it looks like on a twin bed in Youngest's room. Looks great with the green walls, but I already have a twin sized chenille blanket for her, and this one is going on our bed as soon as it warms up enough to not need a thick winter blanket anymore! Plus, I am tickled that Hubby likes it too and kept commenting on how cool it'll look on our bed! Gotta love a guy that doesn't care if the blanket on the bed is old and PINK!!
When we got back from running errands, I spotted a bunch of boxes on the front step left behind by the UPS guy. After unloading our goodies and getting the girls hooked up with juice and snacks, I was able to open and discovered this:: one of my Bloggy friends sent me the car seat that her baby has outgrown, knowing that I needed a car seat for the new baby.
I have never met her and only know her through our Blogs, and I am so touched by her kindness and thoughtfulness in thinking of me and my family. She asked me if I minded using her daughter's baby seat, having since outgrown it and many places refusing to accept donated car seats, for safety reasons. As you know, I shop thrift stores and yard sales, so I absolutely don't mind using second-hand items. Money is tight, and when I went to price new car seats, I was blown away by the prices compared to nearly 6 years ago when I bought a car seat for Oldest. She sent me the car seat, base, an extra base and an infant head pillow. Thank you so much dear friend!! You'll be getting something in the mail from me soon!!
I can now cross off getting a car seat off my list of things I need to get before the baby gets here. It's not a very long list, as I still have most of my baby items, and the car seat was the biggest item I needed.
