I had my anatomy scan last week…and as if my inclination to nest wasn’t intense before, not only finding out gender but learning that Raylan was healthy and growing like a champ…well that just set my nesting instinct on FIRE.
Today, we made our first purchase for the nursery! A beautiful chair!
Initially, one of A’s coworkers was going to give us a glider. They were getting rid of a few furniture items before they headed to their next duty station. At the last minute, they decided it was a sentimental piece they couldn’t part with. Who can blame them? I balled my eyes out when I realized all of the things (quilts, furniture, etc) I had gotten from my Aunt Marie was wiped out in a tornado I went through in 2011. (More on that at a later date when I care to chronicle my story…) As such, we were back down to no furniture! We decided today to scope out some furniture stores all over Shreveport and look for a chair.
But what should we get? A glider? Naw…it’s definitely for the best that the glider deal fell through…swings and things make me nauseous. I get nauseous just standing on my front lawn because the world spins. I am kind of the queen of motion sickness.
How about a recliner? Takes up too much room…
An armchair? Yeah…that sounds like the best of both worlds! Immediately, I had all these amazing mental images of cradling my little pudding pop while curled up in a little chair, feet propped on an ottoman. After several stores, we settled on this guy:
It is this beautiful sort of charcoal blue color and will go perfect with our driftwood nursery furniture set and rustic fishing motif. Decorating is such a blast, especially when it is for my little man! I feel so thankful and blessed that I have the opportunity to do silly and sweet things like decorate a nursery.
