To start...

I have SO MANY THINGS TO BLOG ABOUT. So I'm starting with the most trivial. I cleaned this last weekend. Well, more of a reorganization. It involved shoes getting corraled in a shoe rack and a Martha Stewart like folding of blankets. This lead to the discussion of our current comforter. I like it. It's white, sage, dove grey and a dusky navy color. I got a great deal on it with matching pillows and drapes.

Then we got into the discussion of new sheets. What to get, what color, what count. It finally came down to one simple statement from my love. "I want the bedroom to look grown up. It just needs to look hot and sexy. Like people get laid here." His words, not mine. Do you know that there is a fine line between sexy and brothel. Very fine. Now if he wanted a princess bed, or modern bed I could do that. But no. Good thing I like red.

So I've looked. All over. Looked so long my brain hurt. (Maybe that's why the migraines are bugging me again.) Looked online, ebay, amazon, bedbathandbeyond, linen's and things, luxury linens and the list goes on. I've probably looked at 600 different comforter sets, maybe a thousand. Finally, I said what the heck, and checked target and found it. It isn't supposed to be until about 2-6 weeks from now. So I waited.

And we still looked. Today (sunday the 14th) we were shopping at Dillards on the east side of town. You'd think the dillards would be the same on both sides of town. Nope. Different stuff. We found another red comforter we liked. "Hey Marc, this looks almost like the one at Target." "Yeah, I really like that. Let's get it."

It looks beautiful in the bedroom. And amazingly enough, it IS THE EXACT SAME AS THE ONE FROM TARGET!. I'm not sure how I feel about that part, but I really dig my room. Arina did too. We got new cream silk sheets. After I put the fitted sheet on the bed she hopped on it and rolled around laughing like a maniac. I'll have to put up pictures after it's all painted.

Like people get laid here...wow, thats TMI. And I think your brain is hurting cause it's slipping down your back again from all the rolling around thinking about a "sexy room."

Have fun.
