To the Mattresses!! (an update)

Working a full week of overtime is getting a bit hectic. Today I came home just exhausted and was so happy to get a great home cooked meal. Monday night we went to Babys R Us to get a mattress and we were deciding on a Sealy Premium or the brand with the sheeps on them. After finding the mattress that "felt" better, not necessarily softer or harder but firmer for a baby/toddler, we went with the Sealy for 89.99 and used our 15% discount card. We took it home and ripped off the mattress and placed it in our crib! Its amazing how things are coming together and we have only about 12 weeks til our baby girl is here with us! Needless to say, I need to do more work on tweaking the budget and finances this week. Also I have a huge test I need to study for my college class. Final exams are next week, so I need to get started... I'll be so happy when this week is over!
