As I posted earlier in my pregnancy, I have had my heart set on very specific furniture for the nursery for some time now. I recently purchased the crib, but had not yet purchased the dresser/changer. I was waiting to purchase all of the furniture until we were moved into our new residence, as to avoid having to move it. We moved into our new place on Wednesday night; on Friday I went online to order the dresser/changer. And it was temporarily UNAVAILABLE. I immediately went into crazy-pregnant-lady-panic mode. I teared up, thinking “OH NO, THE BABY IS GOING TO ARRIVE BEFORE I HAVE THE NURSERY READY.” I could not think of a worse situation. I mean, who knows how long it was going to be unavailable, and I need it very, very soon. So I searched the deepest depths of the internet, googling frantically, looking for this dresser: ebay.com, overstock.com, amazon.com, shopping.com, babycenter.com, craigslists across the nation, you name it. It was absolutely no where to be found. I am sure you can imagine my state of total panic.
That is when I decided it was time to take action, time to go directly to the source. I called the designer, amy coe’s, shop, located in Connecticut, and left a very lengthy message regarding my desperate situation, hoping that someone would call me back. And they did! (I am now a giant fan of amy coe and her staff.) It was miracle. They let me know that the popularity of the piece had led to its unavailability, and it would be back in online stores within a few weeks. I was so overjoyed. I cannot describe just how happy this made me. (And this call coincided with the delivery of my new refrigerator, so it was a double-whammy of happiness.)
A few minutes ago, I was checking my email and….THE DRESSER IS NOW AVAILABLE. I didn’t waste a single moment: I pulled out my credit card and ordered that gorgeous piece of furniture immediately, with a giant smile on my face. It should get here late next week.
Oh the joys of being super pregnant; my emotions seem to have totally taken control, especially of anything regarding the baby.
Needless to say, I cannot wait to set up the nursery. It’s going to be adorable.
