I think there is a list somewhere that contains all the "best baby things" that moms get to do while they are pregnant and waiting for baby. Like buying that first outfit, or making shower invitations or setting up the nursery. I was really excited about the nursery part. Before, when I lived with my in-laws I was so lucky. They baby was going to have his own big room right next door to mine. I would have had plenty of room for all the furniture I needed plus some. So, I went out and bought the most awesome crib. I took weeks and weeks searching and finally picked it out at Room 4 Baby here in Gilbert, paid for it upfront and started waiting. Well the waiting is finally over. But, of course (welcome to my life) my living situation has completely changed. I now live in a tiny bedroom in my parent's house and I can't even barely fit all my furniture in there, much less a crib. Much less this crib. I picked out this huge, beautiful crib because I had all the room I needed before. Plus, at this point I could really use that money back! The store can't take it back becuase they had to order it, blah blah blah... which is totally understandable. But now I am stuck with this enormous, beautiful crib and nowhere to put it. I don't know very many pregnant girls that are still looking for a crib, but if any of you do let me know! I just want to sell it for what I paid for it. It's still brand new in the box and hasn't been opened yet. It's the Munire Deco Crib in Espresso and I paid $500 for it. Sorry if this post seems like a whiny post, I really don't mean it to be! I just need help getting this crib sold so I hope you guys might be able to help me! On a lighter note, I'm 35 weeks already! Only 5 more to go. The baby is doing good. He moves a ton and just beats me up all day long :)

Have you tried Craig's list? I'm so sorry you're in such a crappy situation with that crib. Good luck my dear!

oooh, I love Room 4 Baby. I get green with envy every time I go in there. Fast forward two years and I'd would buy that crib from you. That's the next time I'll be having a baby and we're planning on getting all new baby furniture once we're done with school. It is a gorgeous crib! Good luck selling it. Somebody will want it.

By the way, you look so cute! I can't wait until we get there. Maybe baby can come a couple weeks early so I can meet him. And I'm going to hire you to give Ella her first haircut. It's time to say goodbye to the rat tail. Love you!

I love your crib! I bought one at Room 4 baby too. That place has the most beautiful cribs! Expensive... but well worth it. Oh and just as a heads up... kids bite the wood! Brayden took off some of the finish which totally stinks! So anyway we had to make covers for the 3 shorter sides so he couldn't do it anymore. I'd do that once your little one gets it's first tooth because it's inevitable! They LOVE to bite things.

First off, not a whiny post at all! I feel horrible for you, $500 is like gold to us these days, so I understand you wanting that back! That crib is so cute, and I would buy it in a heart beat from you, but I'm not sure what I'm even doing or if I'll even have a room for my baby either! I'll get back to you, I do hope you sell it sooner though for your sake!
I didn't know you were prego, and um THE CUTEST thing ever too! Congrats to you, and thank you for your congrats to me! It was so nice to hear from you!!

Oh how I wish I needed that. Do you think if I bought it then the other stuff would come??? :-)

So glad you have an ugly almost naked guy in your life too. It's just too funny.

MCC, Thurs nights. OH how I'd LOVE to see you!!
