The Bedding

Hello lovely bloggers and friends! How are you all today? I am stoked it's finally Friday! I LOVE the weekends and this weekend is sure to be a fun time. Right now in Germany there is a celebration called Fasching aka Carnival. It is a festival that begins right before lent where people dress up in all types of crazy costumes and masks, let loose and have a blast! It's so nice to see Germans taking it easy and having a huge celebration. We've had the opportunity to see Fasching in Koln and Mainz, and this year we are heading to the Fasching parade in Rudesheim to be a part of the festivities. I can't wait to take loads of pictures and see all of the craziness that is Fasching! Who knows, I might even pull out my old blue wig that I wore last year!

On another note, I realized when I posted about Sophie's nursery, I didn't add any pictures of her bedding. We actually just received all of her bedding in the mail yesterday which was so exciting! (I always love getting packages.) I absolutely adore her bedding and think it is going to match perfectly in her room. I received three fitted sheets, a bed skirt, and a bumper to add to what I already had, the quilt and matching pillow. I was surprised to find the bumper completely dirty... it is so unlike Pottery Barn. BUT, leave it to my amazing friend Sarah... she called them up for me immediately (knowing I would just deal with it) and explained to them the situation and that it's almost impossible to fit a huge bumper into our teeeeeny tiny German washers/dryers and they were kind enough to get another one in the mail to me! How AWESOME! Thanks to Sarah (my friend with brass balls), the problem of the dingy dirty YET brand new bumper is solved! I was totally impressed that she didn't think twice about calling them up, as I would have totally blown it off, washed my expensive bumper, and probably ruined it! Crisis averted! And it was very cool of Pottery Barn to send me another one.

Anyway... here are pictures of her bedding:
Pictures are from the Pottery Barn website.

We have an espresso crib.

The bumper and the fitted sheet.

There is also a super cute little quilted pillow that matches, but they don't have a picture of it on their website. I've already washed the fitted sheets and I can't wait to put them on her bed... I'm just waiting for her water proof mattress pads to arrive and we'll be in business.

What do y'all think of the bedding?

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!
I'll be back Monday with a weekend update and hopefully some fun pictures of Fasching!

Until Monday,

You probably already know that I am a customer service rep for PB and we always want our customers to be completely satisfied and I especially would hate to think that one of my favorite blogger friends would accept anything less than perfect. You chose one of my very favorite bedding collections!
