I can imagine how busy holiday weekends are.. I hated them too. In fact, I always hated working weekends, it seems that's when all the rudest people are out. Bleh.
I am so jelly over your avi. I haven't been able to sell enough to purchase the jellyfrills. Stupid worthless items and my inventory is full of them now that older stuff isn't worth anything now. Grr.
I'll slowly get there.. And when I do, it will drop in price a couple months later. 'Cause that's how my luck rolls. Lol!
I can't wait 'til the pregnancy is over. 9 more days and counting. I'm looking forward to being able to turn over in bed and not feel like a awkwardly challenged walrus trying to roll over. Hahaha!
Okay.. Bed and dresser. Not bad, but I wouldnt purchase anything big until you get there. In fact, don't purchase much of anything right now. Save as much as possiblr and wait til you get there. The cost of living is different, so you may get items cheaper because of tax differences. I would suggest looking through craigslist for cheap furniture once you're more settled.
Here's a basic list;
Microwave (unless there's one already provided in the apartment)
At least 2 pots/pans
Cooking spoon and spatula (you can find stainless steel ones at target for $5 each)
Knives for cooking (at least 2 - small and big, sets are expensive)
Eating-ware (Corelle sets are awesome 'cause the don't break easy, lightweight, and come with bowls, plates, and mugs)
Utensils (can find cheap sets at Walmart, aisian markets like Lions/Ranch99, or online. Look for stainless steel)
2 steak knives
Coffee maker (also nice for hot water when you don't want to take time to boil it)
Table (fold out tables are adequate prices for temporary solutions. Or find something decent on Craigslist)
Chairs (also cheaper to buy fold out for temporary unless found cheap on CL)
Bathroom size trashcan
Washcloths (sets sold at Walmart are decent price)
Towels (at least 4)
Disinfecting wipes (also handy and minimize the use of the spray for quick cleaning and can also be used to wipe down floors instead of mopping)
Dish sponge or scrub
Swiffer (easy floor cleaning)
Tupperware containers (cheap ones can be found at Walmart for under $5 per set of 4)
Towels (at least 4) for kitchen
Toiletries (TP, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, soap, handsoap for sink)
You might also need a lamp or 2, not all apartments have adequate lighting. I would suggest tall single bulb floor lamps. Don't need a table for them and easy to place/manage.
I want you to win one too.. I'll live vicariously through you, since I never enter or win those things anyway. Too many biased people to deal qith, not worth the time. Lol
Omgggggg... the little pink outfit is adorableeeeee!!!!
Sooo cute! Totally brightened up my day. Totally hasn't been easy today, so it was nice to be able smile.
I can't wait to wash and use it.. Just counting the days~
I'm sure the Casper is comfortable. And returning is such a hassle, I can understand why he wouldn't want to.
We narrowed down to the 3 choices of ghostbed, casper, and tuft & needle.
The Ghostbed isn't as firm as our original memory foam mattress. You sink into it and it's so relaxing. We did a lot of debating and research before we made our choice. The fact that we could do a payment plan really helped our decision as well. Instead of paying one hefty chunk of 850, we're doing 3 months of 275 and change. Online shopping has been such a lifesaver.
Pleasing the masses.. When you should just be your awesome, colorful self. Backgrounds are stupid. Lol!
I chose c-section because I wasn't given a choice with Kraz's pregnancy, so why go through it all over again when I can just schedule one?
We went with the Ghostbed. We did it with affirm, which allows us to make payments on it. Its different than casper in the sense that it has a top layer of gel foam rather than the latex. Its super comfortable! In the morning we don't want to get out of bed, too relaxing. Lol!
Meh.. I'm not fond of backgrounds. Too much going on at once isn't attractive in my personal opinion. I really like how your avi turn out.
I just got one of your packages yesterday! The phone case is so cute! Love it! Thank you so much!
I have 16 days to count down 'til the scheduled c-section. I'm a bundle of nerves. We've done a little more preparin (including up sizing our bed, love it!). I've got all new baby stuff sanitized and cleaned. Now just waiting 'til day arrives.
