    Today is a "I just can't even" day at work, but could you shopping mamas either restart or rekindle or something with deals and steals?  Don't make me go to some other bmb page to find them!  Thank you kindly in advance.  I will enjoy going through stuff when I get home.
    I tried finding that page that had unofficially started a while ago in our BMB but couldn't. Anyone else find it or should we just start a new one?

  • @MRSCORKER that is our plan too! I want to try to re- make a piñata shirt I made for cinco de mayo so we're themed. Obviously I'll need to make the shirt before Ella comes

  • It would be nice if we could have a giant shower aka bitchfest/happiness/confession/bump day party for ourselves. 

    I knew new chipotle used to do the burrito thing because I vaguely remember my college roommate and I wrapping ourselves in cheap aluminum foil one Halloween to get it. A baby would be much easier to wrap...although I wonder if they would give us and SOs each a free burrito for just one baby burrito? I mean, it kinda is like both of us dressing up (a part of) ourselves? Greedy I know I know, but, I feel like both parents should get a free meal at least once shortly after their baby's birth. Last time I checked, the Chipotle Halloween thing changed to something like...dress like a burrito and some other modification (I forget what specifically but I want to say nontraditional use of a costume accessory?), so I was lazy and opted out.

    @mrszoess that's awesome about your burrito catering!
  • I have thought about the halloween thing and not entirely decided. Probably it will end up being something like a Princess Leia buns crocheted cap and a white swaddle or gown.

  • My EDD is 10/3, so I'll have almost a full month of halloween costume fun. I have a couple friends who have decided all that they are getting me for my shower are halloween outfits so he can wear several leading up to the day lol. 


    One of my fav summer guilty pleasure shows just started up (Big Brother) and I just realized that by the time the finale comes around I will either be super ready to pop or will have had this baby. GAH! So close yet so far!

  • @bnsmith85 I'm trying to find out if I can stack buy buy baby coupons on top of a sale with the 15%off for opening a credit card lol

  • @mrszoess I don't know about opening a credit card, but you can't use Buy Buy Baby or Bed Bath & Beyond coupons on sale items at Babies R Us.

  • whaaaaaaaaaaat @krzyriver????? lol
  • I'm good w
    deals until I'm confused lol. did I tell U about my uppababy vista for 100? lol
  • @mrszoess I know, it's super frustrating! Every time I go to use one of my 20% off coupons that's about to expire, the thing I'm planning to buy goes on sale! So then I have to scramble to find something else to get because I can't NOT use it. Lol

  • yes. this one is a 2009. obviously has a stain on the seat (oxy clean to the rescue) and a tiny hole in the basket underneath. otherwise perfect and beautiful. the girl who sold it to me is due w her second in October and she is LOVELY. God bless Facebook yard sale groups!!!! 
  • @mrszoess That's crazy! And here my mom and I were all excited about a Graco click connect car seat base and stroller for $25 at the mom 2 mom sale. Clearly I need to find these FB groups. Lol. She didn't want to keep it for her second baby??

  • she wanted a double, I guess adding a rumble seat wasn't in the cards. 25 is an amazing price for a graco!!! this just fell into my lap. Violet is going to be a diva on the cheap LOL
  • @Schell2013 It looks beautiful. My husband and I also have cheap furniture finds we've said we'll refinish...that are not yet refinished. That dresser looks really lovely, though!

  • You guys it is 7 am and now I am dying for a burrito. I think I know what's for dinner tonight!

    Since this LO's due date is so late (28th) I think I'll just knit a little pumpkin hat for her for Halloween :) I don't think I'll venture out with her, so DH will be on trick or treat duty with DD1 this year. The candy tax will be in full effect though!

  • @SuperNerd42 (and other second-time-moms), at what age did your kid start trick-or-treating?  My son will be 2 1/2 this Halloween and I'm wondering if we should wait another year.  We try to avoid giving him candy (he gets treats, but we try to give him stuff that isn't as processed like homemade desserts or cupcakes from the cupcake bakery), and he's probably not going to remember this year anyway, but I don't want him to miss out on a time-honored tradition.  Thoughts?
  • I found a Ninja Turtle set at a second hand store for like $6 we're going to use for Halloween. It's a costume-type shirt with the design of the turtle chest and then pants with Ninja Turtle feet. We might do a bandana on his head if I think he'll keep it there, lol (DD HATED headbands and hats of any kind).

    If it's cold this year, we'll layer underneath. If its a warmer Halloween, we'll just use it as a single layer, or a short sleeve onsie painted up or something. It's Northwest Ohio, the weather is so volatile that time of year I never have any idea what it's going to do until we get like a week before lol.

  • @rozANDbenSINCE2001 You guys are adorable!  Your daughter is super cute!  I really love Halloween, too and I like dressing up my son.  We usually just go to a friend's Halloween party to show off, but I know of a few neighborhood business trick-or-treat events, so I think we'll probably do that instead of going door to door.  Thanks for reminding me of that option!

    Oh, and another random - speaking of sales, Loft.com is having a sale right now - 50% off everything and free shipping.  They've got some cute maternity clothes on their site.

    I'm not impressed with their selection which makes me sad. Everything is very flowy which makes me look like an actual circus tent.
