I can't believe this is my bed!



So lately I've been really depressed/embarassed because my house is so dirty, dumpy, and crappy. Everything we have is used or thrashed from my kids. Pretty much all of my friends and family have nice houses and most of the time it doesn't bother me, I'm just happy to be able to pay our mortgage,but this week it really got to me. It started when I ordered slipcovers online for my couches, that are filthy dirty just like my carpets! Anyways I got all excited and got a really good deal...... I should have known better........ofcoarse they did not fit on my oversized chair, I guess I measured wrong and since 1 didn't fit I had to send them all back.....why can't things just work out? I'm never going to order anything online again! What a hassel to return everything! I better get all of my $$ back, I have the worst luck! Now I'm depressed because I don't think any will fit. All of our furniture is oversized with padded arm rests and I'm scarred to try and go through the same hassel again. Anyways, in my quest for slipcovers I looked in Linens and Things which is going out of business everything is 50-75% off. I found the most awesome deal! I got a whole bedding set in a bag including 2 sets of sheets, 2 matching window treatments with valances,3 throw pillows and a throw blanket! It's beautiful, it matches my red walls and I have 2 windows! Perfect! It gets better...the original price was 279.00, which I would never pay, I got it for 79.99! I can't believe it worked out I was so nervous because all sales are final. I love it and it makes me happy. I can't wait to sleep in it and ya know do the other things you do in bed! Sometimes I do feel guilty when I make large purchase that I don't really need but I deserve this the comforter that was on our bed we got when we got married, 7 years ago from Target,and it was nothing special. Now to keep my kids from thrashing it.

Looks great! And it makes it even better that you got such a good deal! And, tell your kids they're not allowed in your room! My room is pretty much off limits. They NEVER are allowed in there if I'm not in there with them! If that doesn't work, keep the door locked from the inside, and then just use something to push the lock open every time you need to go in your room (that's what we do with our extra bedroom).

I agree, you do deserve it!! But boy do I sympathize with feeling unchic (is that a word??) Anyways, we have a saying at my house, "I can't have nice things" mostly because if we do spend the money on something, it gets trashed and we get upset, and it's just not worth it. It doesn't stop me from trying every so often though!

Yeah for you! Isn't that fun?? Enjoy!

Its pretty! And I agree with Melissa, I do the same thing...our bedroom: off limits unless we're in there with them.
