I Did Get My Groceries Done & A Little More

Well, Sweet Baby Girl is feeling just about the same as evening approaches. She has spent the day on the couch, sleeping, resting. At one point, she asked me if I could please get her this, from the computer room.

I figured I might be able to take an hour and get groceries if she could use her ipod, and didn't need me. That was fine with her, so off I went, grocery list in hand, all ready to go to Wal-Mart.

Hmmmmm... T.J.'s is literally right down the street. I could run in for just a minute. (Good Friend is laughing right now). Boy am I glad I did. Look what I found!

This is a beautiful, blue/periwinkle colored king size coverlet that had my name all over it. See my Girl Friend has been helping me with how to make a beautiful bed. She changes hers out frequently, (posting pictures of her bed this week, this girlfriend knows how to make up a bed) and she told me to start with a solid spread, then you can build on that color with sheets, shams, throw pillows & blankets, accessories...

I also found a beautiful set of crisp white king size sheets with gorgeous pleats on the cases and top flat sheet. They're in the dryer. They were also on clearance for $15.00!!! King Size!!!

When I got to the check out, one of my favorite associates, (Ashley) was working. I know her first name, she knows me by the coffee I buy there.

I'm thinking I'll work on Blue Eyed Husband the rest of the week to see if he'll paint the bedroom on Saturday. Hugs from Maine

Sounds like you've got Mr. Blue Eyes lined up for some remodeling this weekend! I hope it's not all my fault!

I am glad your daughter is feeling better. I had all of mine home sick yesterday and all of them had different diseases too! Love your blog!

Don't you just love TJ MAXX? THe closest one to me is in Bangor...65 miles away. But I get there at least twice a month. What color do you think you'll paint the bedroom? Nothing like a great deal to make your day (like free mags, good prices on bedding). Have a happy Wednesday, hugs, Kathleen

Painting.....something that will be going on here in about 2 weeks. You will have to post pictures of the before and after!

Hope your daughter is feeling better!

Have a great day

Sounds like a great project for the hubby. That KING coverlet is beautiful...I love that color! Can't wait to see what the room looks like when you get it pulled together.

PS: Hope your daughter is feeling better.

Happy New Year from Houston!
