On a different note we get the boys bunk beds tomorrow. Although we are going to keep Alex in a crib for as long as we can, Jorge is going to use a big boy bed. I am so excited. In fact, in preparation for all the stuff we are doing to the boys' room I decided to take them to our church MDO drop-in today so that I could shop. Can I just tell you that I actually went to about 6 stores in a three hour period. I mean, got to go in, go out, look for what I needed and run back to the van, jump in and hop to the next store in search for what it was I couldn't fine. No loading and unloading the stroller, or the boys. Not to mention the ease of just shopping. I could get used to that.. lol.
Success or not in the stores I visited, I got a lot done in that short amount of time.
-Dropped the boys off at 8:45
-Hit Michael's for the big letters to go on the wall (ALEX, JORGE) and the acrylic paint to paint them
-JcPenny- looking for two twin solid blue comforters for the beds. NO LUCK.
-Sears- still no luck
-Linen's and Things- No luck.
-Trusty Wal-mart. Found them. Plus a matching blue valance for the window.
-Home Depot- bought paint for the room. Stonington Beige. Basic Neutral color to match whatever sheets we decide to use throughout our time in this house.
-Subway- sandwich to go that Eva was craving. ;-P
-Little Ceasars- for the boys.
-11:40- picked up the boys from the church and headed home for naps.
I am so excited to get their room set up. Granted, Alex is not going to be sleeping in there for another two weeks. I need all the time I can get, or sleep I can get, before I make that big jump. Then it will be on to Eva's room for set up. Although we aren't painting anything. I'll be sure to take before and after pictures of both rooms. ;-P
Fun times.. nesting is so much fun... only when I get to cross it off the list!
