Surprise Delivery!

We got our rug early!  I have been looking for a rug for the baby's room for about 2 months now.  The floor is refinished hardwood and is beautiful... Danny did a great job!  But I wanted a soft, dog hair free zone for baby to play.  I searched everywhere I could think of from high end, hoping to find a bargain, to the clearance sections at Walmart and couldn't find anything.  Oh I found a few I like, a couple I loved, but those were usually about $400.  I was looking to spend less than $100.  I even went so far as to put a want ad on Craigslist.  Still nothing.  Then I saw an ad online for Kmart.  Hadn't thought of them since the closest ones are either Abilene or Texarkana.  I found just what I wanted... and the best part was it was 50% off!  And it was only $70 to begin with!  Its a little bigger than I was looking for.  It is a 6'x9', but the best part was, I could spend $15 more and get free shipping!  So I bought another mattress pad and a couple crib sheets and boom!  It wasn't supposed to be delivered until Wednesday, but I got home from school last night to find two boxes on the front porch!  I have found some bargains for this room and it all seems to be coming together!

We decided on a name... we think!  We still aren't going to tell in case we take one look at him and its just not the right name for him.  We had narrowed it down from 4 to 2, but we are both leaning toward one favorite (finally!).  As soon as I figure out how, I'm going to post a poll to see what other people's favorites are and to see how many choose the one we like!  All our middle names are family names... first names are just random ones we like!  Which will it be?!

  2. I didn't know that... I'll keep that in mind. If I posted more pictures that would definitely be worth it!
