I'm a big kid now.

So you remember when I was all bragging that I got brand new bedroom furniture and it was awesome and amazing, and I was SO FLAPPING EXCITED about it?

And someone asked if Robert would still be in the corner of my room scaring people.
 Of course he is. You'll notice he matches the decor nicely. It may or may not have been planned.
 I'm most excited that Matt's dresser? Does not have a mountain of shit on it. He has two things, and I said as soon as he starts piling stuff up there? It may suddenly disappear.
But here is my bed! And my new furniture! And my new blanket that I hope the cats won't destroy because I got a ridiculous deal on it at Kohl's!

Here's some issues though. For one, we had to get a king size blanket and sheet set because the bed is really thick. Like, a queen size set didn't work even though it's a queen sized bed. And while you can't really tell, my bed is almost the same height as my dresser. I'm 5'3 and I literally have to climb into bed. That's even with the low profile base the mattress sits on. I need to get pet stairs so Batman to get on because he struggles right now and they need to be sturdy enough for me to use because it's an unnatural height to get into. Seriously. Try climbing on your dresser every night.

Then when I have to pee in the middle of the night? There is an audible thump when my feet hit the ground. There's that much distance to the ground. But I will say that overall?

Best bed ever. I don't wake up every hour anymore in the night, my back is not killing me, and no matter what position I sleep in? Totally comfortable. The only thing I'm getting used to is the memory foam i-Comfort pillows. They are really firm, and then get really flat. So it's weird and I'm not used to it yet. If they just didn't get as flat it'd be fine.

Oh, and my super awesome painting that was above my bed? It's back up and I just forgot to take a picture. Maybe I'll do that later on because it looks really awesome all together. As it turns out, I'm super kick ass when it comes to coordinating things and I didn't think I would be.

Just more proof that I really am a super hero.

A couple of things:
1. That looks awesome. Props to the Home and garden chica that you never knew was in you
2. I am not surprised that R. Pat is still in there, and am, in fact happy about that. What surprises me was that there was no mention of the Robert doll on the side table.
3. I can't wait to see you in a couple weeks.

Doesn't it make you feel like you have your shit together when you get like real furniture, from a real furniture store and it doesn't look ghetto as fuck? I know I love it. My bed is from Ikea and normally that shit would break in 6 months, but I was smart and bought the only iron framed bed they carry. If that breaks, I'm loading up the pieces in my car, driving 3 hours to Nashville and bitching them out.

I want to sleep with you in your giant bed. It looks amazing.

I like t. I'd like a some what higher bed than we have now but that would require the purchase of box springs which DH can't agree to. We have a memory foam mattress that doesn't need box springs & before that we had a sort of super upgraded futon type mattress that also didn't need box springs so I can no longer remember what is it like not to have the top of a mattress just clear my knees.

I've always thought it would be awesome to have to step up into bed.

I have a new, super-tall bed now too, and it's strange. I'm tall, and I still feel like a gymnast just getting out of bed in the morning. The pet stairs help- poor Bubs would break his legs jumping out now.

Looks awesome- good job!

Love love love the new furniture. I'm a huge fan of that wood color. Seriously. I basically won't get anything else. Glad you got a new bedroom set. It's nice creating a little oasis to relax in :)
