Patience pays off!

So I've wanted this bookcase for Saylor's room since I saw it at Target at least a year ago. Everytime I would go there, I had to walk by it and gaze. For some reason I just couldn't justify paying $200 dollars for it, yet I swear everytime I would leave I had spent at least a $100 on the most random stuff that I probably didn't really need. So I was going through the Sunday paper ads, which is the best part of the newspaper and happen to stumble across the bookcase I wanted and it said it was on SALE!!! The next morning I knew Saylor had to take her morning nap, but the minute I heard her get up, I was so excited causeI knew we were going to TARGET!! I headed to Target and I walk over to the furniture section of the store and down the isle of bookcases. My heart is pumping and i'm so excited! I walk down the bookcase isle and I start looking to find it on the shelf. I'm crushed.. there gone!!! this can't be! Luckily I tracked down someone to check the back and they had 1 left in stock with my name written all over it!! so long story short, it's still sitting in the box waiting for my hubby to put it together, but after 'm done posting this i think i'll go ahead and start the project cause I can't look at it in the box anymore! The suspense is killing me. My girlfriend in UTah has been asking me to send pictures of her baby room, so i'll post some once I get the bookcase in there!

oooo lucky lady! Way to be patient. I find it hard to buy things full retail price, because eventually everything goes on sale! That'll look perfect in her room with the decor that's already in their and her crib. Once again, Great taste! P.s. i like it when you tell stories on your blog, your details are so entertaining "my heart was pumping" etc. :) Fun to read.

You might be better off doing it yourself. I have seen Bobo with the tools..not so much Bob the Builder. But it's all good.
