So we ere out shopping together yesterday and my Mom found a great deal on a gorgeous crib that later turns into a toddler bed then a double bed! It's a beautiful cherry wood color. I love it! The only thing is, DH and I both agree that we think it's way too early to bring it into the house! We don't want to be jinxed! But I wasn't going to refuse it either! Mom said she was eventually going to buy us one anyways, so she might as well save money and get a better one now than wait until later. She also bought DH and I a new sofa set for Christmas in advance at the same liquidation outlet as the crib (the set includes a couch, loveseat and chair that all match, all 3 pcs. for 800$! I would have at least paid that just for the couch somewhere else!). I'm so spoiled, but also very grateful!!!! A lot less to worry about in the next few months, our old couch is in pieces (litterally! you can't even sit on one side since it collapsed 2 weeks ago!) and we had no money to get a new one right now, plus with the baby on the way we want to start saving money not spending it! I am sooooooo happy right now, I'm on cloud 9! Let's just hope it stays that way!!!! I'm so thrilled, I just had to share!!!
Very nice to be spoiled by parents, isn't it?? My parents are always doing things for DH and me, and while we tell them they don't have to, it is all very appreciated... like you said, especially now that there's a baby to save for!

WoW!! What an awesome mom you have!!! I don't think you are jinxing anything. I think it's smart to start preparing and that you are taking advantage of some great sales! We could definitely use a new sofa set, and a dining set! Our couches are about 15 yrs old! They aren't falling apart, but they are leather and really starting to get run down! And our dining table is too small and glass! What a pain to clean!!
Well congrats on the new sofa set and crib!!
