When I arrived home last night, this was waiting for me on my doorstep:
Without exaggeration, I think I can safely say that our rainbow hot air balloon is the single greatest thing ever in the history of the universe.
A month or two ago, my husband and I were perusing a fancy-schmancy baby shop when we discovered it (frugal folks that we are, we later found it online for a much better price). I spent the day rhapsodizing over its general awesomeness, then stuck it in the nursery-decor file in back of my mind.
A couple of weeks ago, my husband came home and giddily announced that he had bought our little family a present. Sure enough, my beauty arrived last night, perfect, happy and ready to hang in LOOL's room. The green is the same shade as our walls, and the bright stripes tie the whole room together (photos to come in future nursery post). The finishing touch will be the fluffy white clouds that my crafty mother is going to paint on the walls when she comes down next week.
Your room is waiting for you, little baby!!
