My posts have been noticeably slim the past couple of months and here's why: 24/7 morning sickness aka the plague from hell. Yes, I'm pregnant with our first child!
My first trimester was pure hell; so bad that most days I could not get up and function at all. But, I'm FINALLY feeling like myself again as I enter the 2nd trimester, albeit an exhausted version of myself, but at least I am no longer couch decor. I can get up and live again. Que the applause.
With my returned sense of self and a stable stomach and head (I experienced horrible vertigo for weeks), I am starting to plan the nursery. It will of course be mid century inspired, what else.
But, once again, my champagne taste and beer budget have forced me to get creative and search for what I want at a fraction of the cost.
Here's what I really want but unless we win the lottery I can't justify putting down that much money for one piece of furniture.....
Dwell Century Crib $980
Oeuf Sparrow Crib $730
Oeuf Classic Crib $950
Oeuf Robin Crib $590
Litto Kids Manhattan Crib $950
Spot On Square Roh Crib $1990
Muu Ray Crib $865
Offi Nest Bassinet $1000
Now, back to the real world. Here's more like what I'm considering:
Baby Mod Parklane 3-in-1 Crib $299
Baby Mod Olivia 3-in-1 Crib $299
Baby Mod Modena 3-in-1 Crib $299
Ikea Somnat $100
I will continue to scour Craigslist for a great deal. They are out there but you have to jump on them. I found the Oeuf Sparrow, regularly $730, for $175 on CL Orange County but it was gone by the time I heard back from her.
More on baby stuff to come as the months go by.
