Tanner's Nursery

After much thought and debate we finally decided on the theme we would go with for Tanner's nursery....Sea Life! This is the theme I had planned on doing way back when I was pregnant with Izabel (if she had been a boy) and I planned on doing it this time anyway, but then I found the Turtle Bay pattern which I loved and started debating. Then I found out that several of my friends have or are using that pattern so I started doubting that choice. Then my friend at work offered a whole nursery set with all of the accessories for $100 (a savings of almost $300 if we had purchased everything ourselves). This set is the Frog Prince theme and I liked it, but I didn't love it. In order to make a decision we went to Babies R Us last night to look at our choices up close and compare prices. It turned out that the Sea Life pattern was being discontinued and what they had left on was on clearance! They were also having a sale on the clearance and everything was buy one get one half off! Needless to say our decision was made! The room is already painted blue but we are thinking about painting the bottom half a brighter blue and putting the border around the middle (thanks Kim for showing me how cute this can look!) The only thing the store didn't have was the border so after about a dozen phone calls I found 2 rolls at the Babies R Us in Richmond. I have them on hold and I am going to try and get someone up there to pick them up for me until I can go get them.

Here is a picture of the set from Kids Linen Co.

While we were there we bought a shower gift (I wonder who it could be for!) and did a little registering! We are not planning on having a shower and we don't expect anyone to get us anything for this baby, but there are people who want to anyway so we wanted to let them know what things we actually need. I know it doesn't seem like we should need anything after just having a baby 14 months ago but there are some things that are still needed! Plus anything that is still on the registry when Tanner arrives we can buy at a discount so for that reason only it was worth the time!
We also ordered the furniture (it was on sale too) and that will be here in about a week. It's very exciting and becoming oh so real all at the same time! I am a little past 21 weeks which means there are only about 17 weeks left until Tanner arrives!!!
