Bedding Dilemma

Writing this blog has definitely made me start checking some things off our "to-do" list.  This weekend while visiting my mother I browsed through T J Maxx looking for some bedroom decor.  With my husband at home it made things a lot easier, you see my husband likes to think of himself as a part-time interior designer at the Turner residence [it just kills me].  We can never agree on anything!  Usually I just give in - let him get his way and later after he realizes when mommy's happy...everyone's happy, I whip out the debit card and go to work.

When faced with the multitude of bedding options I started to question my original plan.  Comforters, quilts, duvets, bedspreads, blankets, OH MY!  What's a girl to do when faced with so many options.  Instead of having an anxiety attack I decided to go with what my husband and I originally discussed [I know you thought I made all the decisions right?!].  My husband and I have loved quilts as our bedding choice every since our honeymoon.  We stayed at a great beach house in the Outer Banks with modern "beachy" quilts, that were far from grandma's country decor! Quilts are classic and hold up great over time unlike my experience with comforters, light weight while still providing the same amount of warmth of a comforter.  Luckily I found a quilt that caught my eye that had two matching shams, grabbed some accent pillows and doing so all while trying to control a very bossy, out-of-control two year old.  So after all of that here is how it turned out...

I really need to start taking pictures with a decent camera, but my phone is always so handy.  We still need to paint so that is a blog in progress along with the other million and one things on our "to-do" list to make our house a home.  Hopefully we can strip the buffet one more time and then start painting...our new sofas get delivered Saturday, so I have to go and crack the whip on my husband ;-)
