If you're following my Tweets you know that my chair from Tar-jay arrived and you also know I'm in love with it.
If you're not following my Tweets . . . I'll try not to take it personally. You know I'm ultra sensitive right now, being nine months pregnant and all . . .
You can just click on that little Twitter button in the top right of my page and follow, which would make me happy because I get an email telling me when new people follow my Tweets. I like to know someone other than my mom gives a hoot about what I'm doing every day.
Anyway, my goal in finding a rocker was to find one that could eventually be moved out of the nursery and become a permanent piece of furniture somewhere else in our house. So many gliders look like they belong in a nursery and look displaced if you try to put them anywhere besides the nursery..
I considered just getting a really beautiful antique rocker, but I wanted something really super comfortable and although I love old rockers, they sometimes hurt my tush if I sit in them for too long.
So I found this rocker at Target online but I was nervous it was going to be a big pile of junk when it arrived at my house.
I was also nervous about the color of the chair because I wanted a cream color and the Target website listed it as "tan" but it was really more of a soft beige or a dark cream. It's perfect.
It was $399 but it's worth every penny . . . and NO, I'm not getting paid or reimbursed or receiving anything from Target for posting this. I just want you all to know you don't have to spend $1500 at Pottery Barn to get a decent, comfy rocker glider.
Most of all, I love how soft the fabric is. Imani and I have been snuggling up in that big chair and reading every night before she goes to bed. Breaking it in before little Noah arrives . . .
Sometimes I just sit in there by myself and relax . . . or catch up on my emails or read my favorite Tweets from people on my phone.
If you don't have a Twitter account, I'd highly recommend it, even if you don't want to Tweet. It's fun to read other people's Tweets. I'm a bit addicted, actually (does that surprise you?). I never thought I'd like it but I'm totally in love with Twitter.
I like it far more than Facebook.You can get the inside scoop on all of your favorite blogger's lives
or famous musicians . . .
it's pretty cool.
Oh, and yes, I follow Justin Bieber's Tweets. I blame Imani because we went to see Never Say Never 3D and she learned all about how much he uses Twitter and how he announces his concerts and appearances on Twitter so she begged me to follow him.
So I did.
And I secretly wanted to because after I saw the movie, there was something I really liked about the boy. Did you see it?
But now, I might drop him from Twitter.
He always re-tweets what a bunch of his fans post about him and it's kind of annoying. I'd rather read what he has to say than a bunch of retweets from people saying how much they love him.
But mostly it's annoying because he hasn't retweeted any of my tweets or my sister's tweets or Imani's tweets.
Like when Imani played "Happy Birthday" on the violin for him because she heard he wants to learn how to play the violin.
How could he NOT retweet that?
So yeah, JB is getting dropped from Twitter now . . . not that he'll notice but still.
Anyway, I'm so glad the chair from Target is a keeper. I was so nervous I'd have to return it and suck it up and buy the Pottery Barn rocker that I've coveted for so long, even though it would take a big ole bite out of our savings account. I'm still debating if we should get the ottoman to go with the rocker. I don't want to take up too much space in the nursery, but it would be nice to have something to put my feet up on.
It's $169.99 too. Uggh.
I'm gonna go sit in my rocker now and drop JB from Twitter.
