Happy 4th!

It's Independence Day and definitely a day to celebrate all of our freedoms!

We aren't doing too much, just trying to get over being sick... again! This time Batman has it too- stuffy nose, sinus headaches, neon green snot, couch, sore throat, etc. It's been a rough couple of days.

If we are feeling up to it we may hit the city fireworks display this evening...

On an updated note:

We did finally get registered at BRU yesterday :) Somehow I was able to coerce Batman into going and he seemed to have a good enough time with the gun. It helped that we went and got a Booster Juice before going in. I think it helped, too, that we were able to skip quite a few sections since we already have, or are getting, bigger items from family (my older bro just ordered us this stroller- I can't WAIT to get it! and my IL ordered us this glider and ottoman {only in black and fawn beige} that should be here in about a week or so! Woot! We are still looking for a crib- who knew that finding a black crib that I actually like, that's also a reasonable price, would be so hard to find? Any and all suggestions would be great! My parents are taking care of that purchase for us)

I hope you all have a very happy 4th of July!!

Do you have a baby depot around you? It's a sister company to burlington coat factory. They have a really big selection of cribs and I've seen a few nice black cribs in there before. I didn't pay attention to the price but they are usually pretty reasonable.

Happy 4th! I hope y'all feel better soon.

When the guys get to hold that scanner gun it seems to make everything go easier! Josh went crazy at BRU with it.

Try Target for the black crib. I think the one we registered for came in black.

I hope you had a wonderful 4th and were feeling well enough to go watch some fireworks.

I think I have that same Shermag glider (in cherry, not black). The chair itself is decent, although a bit on the narrow side. The matching ottoman is a whole different story! I don't know if I merely got a defective ottoman or what, but I can't stand it. It wobbles, makes noise, and the cushioning on the ottoman is just not very good. I'm hoping mine was just defective and that you'll have better luck with yours! Otherwise, it's a great bargain.

I agree with Rikki - the Baby Depot isn't bad. They're a little pricier than BRU, but still reasonable. The only downside to them is that they are slow to ship. If you plan on getting a crib through them, allow at least 12 weeks for delivery. They had a furniture set that I was tempted to buy, but I was close to my due date and I knew I wouldn't get the furniture in time - so I went with BRU instead.

Sorry to hear you're sick. Take care of yourself & feel better soon.

Oh, one more thing - if you're looking for black cribs and other miscellaneous baby gear, I definitely recommend the website www.diapers.com. They have everything and they offer free next-day shipping. I buy from them all the time - diapers, supplies, you name it. I place my orders in the morning and it's delivered at my front door the very next day. They have some DaVinci and Graco cribs (in black) that you may be interested in and the prices are terrific.

DH and I enjoyed BRU too. Though we seemed to like one of the more expensive cribs, it figures!

That stroller looks awesome!

I hope you felt well enough to enjoy your 4th!

If we ever get to create a nursery, we are going with black furniture too, I think. Let me know if you find something good!! Hope you had a good 4th!!

I got my black crib at Babies R Us. It is the DaVinci brand and looks great!
