Where Whine Meets Wine

Friday! Friday!

on August 12, 2011

I am SOOOOOOOOOO thankful it’s Friday!! Ok, so I’m pretty much always thankful when Friday finally decides to roll around, but today I feel particularly relieved!  And today the thing I’m really, really, super duper thankful for is: THE BUNK BED IS GOING IN ON SATURDAY!!! It has been a LOOONG process (it’s been going on since JUNE). Lots of late nights, lots of long weekends (where I take the kids places and keep them out of hubbyman’s hair so that he can work on it)…. I am so glad we’re finally here! Plus, I was all set to order all the new bedding (because the kids are all switching bedding, which mean 3x new bedding! yikes!) online, when I thought, Maybe I’ll just run and check and see if I can find anything on clearance before I order it… and low and behold, I sure did! It’d kind of a big deal, because the kid’s rooms are decorated matching their bedding. Miss E has a twin bed with an owl comforter and owl stuff on her walls…. and Big E has a full size monkey bed with animals all over his wall. Well, now Miss E is getting Big E’s full bed, and Big E and Littlest E will each have twin beds, in the bunk bed. (Which means we also have to buy another twin bed) Anyhow, I didn’t want to redo Miss E’s room completely, but it worked out, because I found bedding for less than what I’d hoped, plus a few extra’s that were on sale due to it being “dorm room season” for the bedding world! Score one for me! Or three! I will post pictures when it’s in the rooms… but here’s what we have so far.
