Bummer drag, man.

Thursday, February 5, 2009

Tony and I aren't getting very far by way of registering and when I say getting very far, please interpret that to mean we haven't even started narrowing down our choices, and when I say narrowing down choices, we don't even have choices to chose between! Gulp! Me thinks we need to start prepping for this baby!

So instead of focusing on important decisions like strollers, car seats and cribs I've been seeking out diaper bags. Yes, diaper bags. Why, I have no idea. Maybe because I can chose the wrong one without fear of harming Baby Bless? That's probably it.

So anywhoo, the reason for the title is that I was severely bummed out to pull up one of my top contenders on etsy tonight and find it unavailable. No, not just merely sold, with a near replica available, as in completely unattainable. The seller is on vacation from January to May. May. How perfectly convenient, but simply not an option to wait it out. Because I have decisions to make people, we've got a baby coming!

So (for my 3rd paragraph starting with so), I bid farewell to the thought of making this lovely item my diaper bag.

A January to May vacation. That's crazy! I wish I could take that long of a vacation. That is a bummer that you can't get that bag anymore. As you know, I'm not pregnant yet, but diaper bags are one item I'm excited about picking out! Maybe it's because I love purses so much. Good luck with your search!

I'm sorry :o( That is a bummer. But I know you'll find something even cuter than this (optimism!)!

Jennifer said...

Thank stinks! I hate when that happens!! I bet you'll find one you love more!!

Kelly said...

It's cute- but you can do better! Don't stress =)

kari said...

I'm sure you are going to find any even better one Leah!

fah said...

That stinks! It's super cute though. Maybe get it later as a backup. Get a very man-ish one for now that Tony can lug around that's totally inconvenient for you so you have an excuse to buy this cute one later!

That is super cute! And I don't know what size that one is, but this seller has some similar shaped purses, that might do the job. http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5008563

That bag is darling! Do you think you could find someone else that could make it for you? There are so many people on Etsy and so many talented people that could possibly create it for you...

Just a thought!

Sign me up for a 5 month vacation. That is darling, and I bet you can find a crafty blogger who could whip one up for you - and even customize it for bottle pockets, etc. I'd do it, but my sewing skills aren't good enough and I'm guessing the last thing you need is a broken diaper bag 2 weeks postpartum :). You'll find something!

Jen said...

I bet there's a pattern out there to make that. You could make it even better with having the perfect fabric.
As a diaper bag junkie (I think I have 8), I highly recommend having one that is on the smaller side and one that is on the bigger side. If you want a really functional one that Tony won't mind carrying, I would recommend the Target versions of the Skip Hop bags. They're almost as good as the real thing.

Vacation from January to May? Um, I want one of those.

And that sucks! What's even worse is that as soon as something you think you like becomes unavailable, you suddenly want it that much more! But Etsy has so many options, I'm sure you'll find something even more amazing. I saw tons of cute diaper bags while on my camera bag search. :)

abby said...

Oh how sad because that one is so cute! Everyone's right though, because Etsy DOES have tons of options, but could you maybe just get a cheap one to use until the seller returns from vacay? I don't know much about newborns, but you don't really take them out too much those first couple weeks anyway, do you? Hmm guess these are things I should learn. And I confess that I have already started looking at everything you mentioned: strollers, car seats, cribs AND diaper bags :)

Don't worry you'll find it, I have purchased 3 so far and taken back 2 but I believe I have the winner. I totally started with the diaper bag searching before the registry-still not complete but not sure if I'll go back, very traumatic. It's fine. Can't wait to see what you decide!

AmberDenae said...

That is SO cute and SO you! I love it!!

Lindsey said...

Aw man! That is such a bummer because it is super cute!
Jan to May on vacation, I want a vacation like that!!

C said...

Hmm.. I'll keep my eye out for similar ones. Too bad though- I LOVE that one.

AJ said...

That is pretty cute. And right up your alley. I spy blue! I guess it's just not meant to be. You'll find something else. Chin up!

Kaitlyn said...

That is so cute, and it seems so "Leah"-- that's too bad!

julie said...

Registering is a pain, isn't it? And I think the hardest for me has been choosing the diaper bag!

HBee said...

Oh man! That IS a bummer drag man! ;) That bag is pretty adorable and I hate when you finally decide that you found something you like and that you're going to go ahead and purchase and then you can't! I had a similiar experience wiht a beautifully simple pearl necklace that I found on Etsy. I was even going to buy two more for my best girlfriends (b/c we're not too old to be twinkies) and it was sold out. I mean, COME ON! Can't they make more???

ezza said...

ha! i picked out that same bag for a purse, but i think it was in black and white (going through a black and white phase). isnt she in holland? must be doing the whole traveling around europe for the summer. what a bummer! bathroom looks unbelievable-when you guys renovate- it doent take long!
