...how I'm having a baby next month? Well it hit me today when I found out my friend, Hailey, went into labor last night. And her due date was only 2 weeks earlier than mine. And though I don't expect to go into labor super early like she did, I realized that we are SO not ready.
So that prompted me to start pulling stuff out of storage...the first thing being our infant car seat. Then after wiping it down, I realized that I really wanted a pink car seat for our little girl. That led me to researching car seat covers online...and I seriously found them ranging from $65-$120. THAT'S ABSURD!!!!
Well, that started me into craft-mode. I dismantled the car seat cover we have, made my own pattern, and set off for JoAnns. After debating forever between two main materials, I ended up settling on this one:
Super cute, right??? :-)
So I got all my materials (Velcro, elastic, material, ribbon, and thread) and ended up paying only $28.31 (with my 40% off coupon)! I was pretty psyched. Until I got home and realized I got 2 1/2 YARDS of material when I really should have gotten 2 1/2 FEET... so I'm a moron and got three times as much as I needed. I re-calculated and found out my entire car seat project really should have only cost me $17. But oh well. I can't wait to get started and post pictures!!!
(Also, I realize this doesn't get me any closer to being ready for the baby. If anything, it sets me back. But that's how my crazy pregnant brain is working these days!)
