Crib Update and Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

This weekend I did a lot of cooking while David was studying so nothing too exciting, but I did get the baby crib!
We went with crib #1. I had my 20% off coupon and we headed to babies r us on Saturday night. We thought we were going to have to order it, but she came back out and said they had a few in stock! Their customer service is horrible though, I'd go right when they open or closer to close time because it was hard to find anyone who would help us order the crib and bring it up from the back. I think it was about an hour from when we decided on the crib to actually getting it to our truck.
We didn't have time to set it up this weekend so I just had David take it out so I could look at it and inspect it. There are a few imperfections (I am super picky about quality) that I am going to try to email the manufacture about (they put a form in there so you can send it with pictures) so we'll see. Okay on to a recipe.
