growing Up!

I have been married for 12 1/2 years. And not once in those 12 1/2 years have I ever had a bed set that actually fit my bed. My family tells me that I am the master of making do. It's not that I don't want my house to look cute and organized. I just severely lack the Time, money, and taste to do it properly.

So for the last 12 1/2 years I have been using the "single" size comforter I picked out as a 16 year old when re-modeling my room ( that was 17 years ago ). To cover my queen size bed. I would simply lay it horizontally across the bed and then fold the sheets back to line up and give the illusion that the blanket was long enough. Such nonsense, I know!
Well, yesterday I took a step into the adult world and purchased a bed set. I had a limited budget of $50. What can you possibly get for $50? How about a 7 piece bed set. Thanks to a Macy's One Day Sale, and a $10 off coupon. Is it the perfect bed set for me? NO, it would of been fun to get something slightly more funky, and slightly less traditional. But it fits, looks 10 times better and was in my budget. Originally $ 240, Macy's had it on sale for $57.99. My coupon brought it down to $ 47.99 and I was on my way home.

Some how I feel so grown up.

Regardless of your preference for style, it's a beauty. I'm glad you "splurged." I would love to be around a good role model of making "do" because I always think we need more than we actually do!!!

I LOVE it! Good choice! I'm a blue and brown kinda girl! We have a dark brown comforter with matching pillows, and blue sheets with matching pillows. Way to grow up a little! :)

You are hilarious! In the last 12 1/2 years has there never been a fight for covers?

P.S. I beg to differ - you definitely have style and taste. I still love the colors and clothes you put together for your family picture. You don't give yourself enough credit! (o:
