Crib Searchin' | Live Pretty on a Penny

Crib Searchin'

Preparing for my journey into motherhood for the first time has taught me alot about myself. It has mainly taught me that I am actually much more of a minimilist than I imagined. Take my expercience with selecting a crib for example. Deciding on the style of crib had to be one of the hardest decisions in my life. Mainly because I felt that alot of cribs tended to be just a little bit more traditional than the look that I was going for. So everytime I went into either Target or Babies R Us to look, I would shut down and vow to start again another day.

Then my sister called me. She asked me had I made a crib selection as of yet because she wanted to purchase me one as a gift. Well....that put my butt into action. A few days later I received this email from Target...

Buy a crib and get a free mattress? I love a good deal! So after checking out Target's catalog of cribs, I came across the Babyletto line. What I like most about their line of cribs is that they are just modern enough, but not so contemporary that they look overly sterile. 

I ended up going with the Babyletto Madison 3-in-1 in espresso and white. 

Along with the purchase of this crib, I scored a mattress. I can't remember the name of the top of my head, but it got really good reviews.

So there you have it, killing two birds with one stone. Many thanks to my sis for lighting that fire which led me to this beauty.

Oh, and for fun, here is a picture of crib placed in a room that I found on Pinterest via Babyletto.

Cute right?

So I am excited to begin putting my room together:) I will be sharing the progress as it moves along. 11 more weeks until my little boy makes his appearance.

Thanks for stopping by. Until next time!
