After about 20 minutes inside of Buy Buy Baby, I was ready to cry.
They didn't have the brands that I had on my list, the colors and patterns offered were not my taste in the least, and in general we just felt completely overwhelmed. Knowing that we couldn't very well just give up, we battled on, finding things here and there that we liked or could use. But after an hour inside, I had a pounding headache and felt like I could use a stiff drink.
To make matters worse, the next stop on our baby registry journey was Babies R' Us, my own personal version of HELL. I hate BRU with a passion! I have had to go in more than a handful of times to procure items on other friend's baby registries and more times than not I am unable to find what I am looking for even with the assistance of an employee. So after a not so pleasant start to our registering, I was less than thrilled to be walking into my least favorite store on Earth.
But wait! Contradictory to all of my prior experiences, Babies R' Us had nearly everything that we needed! All the major brands, lots of variety, and it was very user friendly to find the items we were looking for. Who would have thought?
Luckily, I was able to find tons of cute things on Etsy to fill in the gaps of our registry!
I also found out about a website called Babylist where you can link all of your registries to one site, as well as add things that you would want from other places like Etsy, Amazon, or other department stores!

Baby girl, you will be our greatest adventure and we are oh so ready for you! XOXO!
