So, I have been looking online at crib bedding since before I even got pregnant. May seem extreme, but I am SO picky when it comes to that kind of thing, preliminary research was necessary. It didn’t take long to discover that I don’t like anything out there under $400. Yikes. I refuse to spend that kind of money on bedding for a tiny baby! If money were no object, my favorite thus far has been this little number called “Argyle Sage” by Little House for $340:
So cute (I am obsessed with Argyle), but way too much money.
Enter TJ Maxx last night.
I was perusing the baby section, the first time I’ve been since we found out the sex, and found the cutest little changing pad cover in an argyle print. I snagged it up and secretly wished to find bedding in the same print. Lo and behold, around the corner was the same print in baby bedding! Score! $60. Bigger score! It looks almost identical to the expensive brand that I adore for WAY less money. It’s “Argyle” by Wendy Bellissimo (a brand Babies ‘r Us carries) and it’s all 100% cotton and actually has higher thread count compared to some of the pricier brands. I went ahead and bought it, figuring if Trevor hated it, I could just return it. He liked it! Yay! Here are some pictures:
I really like it, and the cool thing is, that I found these adorable letters on Etsy this week and they match EXACTLY! The girl that does these must have looked at this bedding as inspiration or something. The letters on Etsy go for $20 each, so I am going to do them myself, instead. I’ll just use the picture as inspiration:
I have many more nursery ideas, which I will share as we put them into being. We are going with our moms to browse nursery furniture this weekend, but I don’t think we’ll actually order it until after our anatomy scan at 21 weeks. Happy Friday, ladies!
And comment moderation is now on. Some “people” are starting to irritate me, and I am stressed out enough being pregnant- I don’t need any further annoyances. Everyone’s comments will be approved unless they’re unnecessarily obnoxious. Kisses!
