Economic Stimulus




so...we got a new bed....and new mattresses, and by golly, i am getting new bedding too. we have had the same bedding since we got married, and it is woeful now, 5 1/2 years old and our bed was secondhand when we got it and the mattresses were cheap as well...needless to say it's a changing day, as doctor phil would say. the mattresses won't be in until friday, so for now we are sleeping on our futon because we got rid of our old mattresses yesterday...we wanted to make a complete break. we also sent our old headboard to Salvation Army. feels good. i am excited to have new bedding. anyone seen anything amazing that i should get? i really want to stay away from red with this black bed...so maybe something torquoise and apple green, or something relaxing yet energizing...citrus? so many options.

Congrats on all of that fun new stuff! I love decorating and getting new things :) We are in need of new bedding as well and I have been searching high and low and have not found anything I like. PLEASE let me know if you find anything good!!!

Yay! I'm so excited for our stimulus check to come as well. I was hoping for a bed, too! In our 6 years of marriage, we've got the same one still, too, with the Bride's Quilt my aunt made for me (ready for a new one!). I'm hoping for a King because then Scotty can sleep with us but all of us will have more room :-) He seems to kick me out of the bed some nights!

I like the bed. Is it Ikea? They have really cute bedding too.

Ooohh, how awesome! I am sure you will pick out some great bedding.

You already got your stimulus check? I want mine! Although, we are just boring and shoving it in savings and using a portion for a trip home to Louisiana..I guess that isn't too boring!
Anyway, I feel like I haven't seen you in forever! We need a playdate next week after all of Melissa's family is gone!
Love the bed...bedding is such a committment for me! I'm always on the look out because eventually we will get a new bedroom set with new bedding...but I haven't found anything to die for! Try Kohl's and Bed Bath and Beyond! Have fun!

You should make yourself something because everything you make is adorable. But, that's a huge time commitment.

So, your list of friends keeps growing exponentially.

Love the bed! I'm gonne go with Ikea for something crazy and fun and Bed, Bath & Beyond or Linen & Things for something a little more calm/classic looking. HAVE FUN!
