shopping today

So, we went to Blake's birthday party today. It was a lot of fun. He is such a big boy at 4! It was a Scooby Doo & Stuff A Friend party. He was dressed as Shaggy, and he had a great time.

The party was in the morning, so we stopped off at Babies R Us to do a little shopping this afternoon. We found a dresser that will look nice with the crib. Our main criteria: tall enough to double as a changing table. We found one online, did the measurements, and saw that it would be perfect.

Well, apparently it's a Babies R Us online only item. So, we did a little research and saw where else it was carried. Target also carries it, and said it was available both in store and online. So, on the way to dinner we stopped off at Target. Of course, it's not available in all stores, and of course not in ours.

We ended up purchasing it online from Babies R Us. I found a coupon code to save 20% off, so that covered the cost of shipping. It'll be sent out in the next week or so. No worries, it's perfect for us. It's in cognac like our crib.

We also did a little diaper shopping. We had some coupons that expire in the next few days, and CVS had diapers on sale. So, we stocked up on a few packages. We know that is something we will need, so we figured why not? Plus, CVS had a special- recieve a free umbrella stroller when you purchase $20 worth of select baby products. The diapers we bought just happened to fall in that category. We don't really need the stroller, but figured we'd donate it to someone who could use it.

While at Target, we used a few more diaper coupons. We gave a fellow customer a $2 off coupon for the pull up diapers she was purchasing. I know they can get expensive! She was really appreciative that we gave her the coupon, and we were more than happy to pass it on to someone who could use it!
