I have done it. I finally feel like a grown-up. I bought new bedding for our bed! Yipee!
I have had the same comforter thing since my first year teaching in Minnesota. I guess I never felt the need to get a new one. Last year Ted painted our room a beautiful "Mulling Spices" color while I was helping my sister with her new baby. It was a great color, but I was starting to get tired of it. Probably because I didn't do anything with the rest of the room. Well, I was shopping at Kohls and saw this beautful bedding! I just loved how the brown pillow tied everything together! You can't really tell, but there is some nice stitching work to add detail throughout the top of the comforter and the pillows. I even changed my bedside table to be more calming. No more books and stuff just laid out. Now they are hidden by a nice little cloth. I feel like my room is actually tranquil. I love it!
