Fast forward a couple weeks to Chris and I sitting in the nursery, going over baby clothes and how many cloth diapers is really going to be enough (apparently the answer is "all the diapers ever made"). We are taking turns on the rocker, moving it farther and farther away from the wall so it doesnt hit the corners, when we notice we are nearly in the middle of the room. This is a small room y'all, so having a big piece of furniture like the rocker sticking out a couple feet really makes a big difference when you walk in. Without saying much to Chris, I make a mental note in the back of my mind that this AWESOME rocker that I love and cashed in all my "karma-credit points" for, may not be the right fit for our house.
As if the Decor Gods were listening to me, I was tempted to stop by a local thrift shop on my way back from a pregnancy check up. There, right when I walked in, was this beauty.
I sent a picture to Chris (since we both have to agree 100% before bringing a piece into the house) and he said it could be my call even though "we already have a rocker".
It was $75 and since Monday's are 10% off furniture days, I skipped out of there like a kid on a sugar high for less than $70 and beamed from ear to ear the entire way home.
Chris will even admit he was a bit skeptical taking it out of my car and replacing our Pottery Barn treasure with something found at a thrift store, but once he got it into place and had a glide, he was hooked.

Its so pretty... and SOOOO stinkin' comfortable!!! Perfect for rocking our little guy to sleep once he gets here!
Anyone else out there flipping stuff on craigslist or have any awesome luck at thrift stores?!
