Go GaGa!

Not going Lady Gaga.  Or “Radio Gaga” (which seems to get stuck in my head on a regular basis for some strange reason).  Not really baby talk per se, but GaGa nonetheless.

I really love CSN Stores.  The idea that I can find pretty much anything at one of their 200+ online stores is pretty awesome.  Plus, their prices are some of the best I’ve found out there.  That’s why I’m so happy to be part of their Preferred Blogger Program. 

When Jamie generously offered me a gift certificate to use at any of their stores, I had a little mini panic attack.  How on earth was I going to pick something to use this gift certificate on, the choices are endless! 

Ultimately I decided to use the gift certificate to get Solomon a little something.  Well, it’s not really for Solomon so much.  It’s for him, but it’s for the baby too.  We are really well prepared for this little boy.  His nursery is all done (but I’m not sharing it until my family gets to see it in person.  I think they should get to see before I share it online), and everything is set up and ready to go.

Solomon and I each took a long time to figure out which diaper bags we wanted.  Yes, we each have our own diaper bags.  It’s just what’s going to work for us. 

Unfortunately, CSN Stores does not carry the bag I had my heart set on, but luckily they do carry the bag Solomon hoped to get.  After talking to a ton of people, and doing a little research, he decided on the Go GaGa Messenger Bag in black and grey from Diaper Bag Boutique.

While we haven’t used it as a diaper bag yet (obvi), it’s all packed and ready to go for the hospital!  We have paperwork, some snacks and other things that we  are going to need in the hospital.  We’re able to fill it pretty well, and it’s comfortable to carry.  I know Solomon is going to be so happy with this bag!  Thank you so much CSN Stores and Diaper Bag Boutique!!!

Oh, and my bag?  I’ve had my heart set on this guy for a long time…

What would you do with a gift certificate to CSN Stores?  It’s really hard to choose, isn’t it?
