Alright, here's a shot of my bedding. It's a quilt and I paid $15 for it. Sweet! Actually, I paid $30 for it at half off and the next day we saw it at a different Target for $15 so I bought it and returned the other one. 
True story.
 Is that ridiculously cheap and a lot of work, or would you do it too?

The edging on the quilt is a darker gray/taupe kind of color and I think I'll do that on the walls. Not too dark, but darker than the gray on the quilt. Then accent with olive greens and distress my dressers and paint them cream. I'm sure it will take me a year before it's all done, though....
It totally matches my room right now with my light blue walls, but I really want a change, people!

After spending most of my free time last week painting the nursery, it's been fun doing different kinds of crafts this week. 
If you want to see how this:

Then you should probably get your buns to our MOPS on Friday. 
And if you wonder what in the world a bunch of ladies are going to do with 500 washers, I again suggest coming to our MOPS.


My dad is staying at our house for a few days this week and Henry is loving it. I just spend an hour trying to get him to take a nap. He's just too excited to see his Pop-Pop! 

Anyways....Happy Groundhog Day!

Super super good deal! I would totally return it for a $15 difference. Smooth move!
I SO wish I could come to MOPS this week......really really I do. I hate working sometimes (but don't tell anyone that). I love the sound of your new room and I hope you enjoy it for a long, long time!
(Ryan is totally in love with his grandpas, too - I love the grandpa/grandson relationship - so special).

Super duper cute quilt! I love that print! And yes, you know I totally would've done the whole exchange thingy too. That's how I roll!

Can't wait for MOPS! You're gonna make us ol' moms look so hip!

Cody is always rolling his eyes at me as I wheel and deal for cheaper prices! It's so worth it!
I LOVE your new bedding! Beautiful! Can't wait to see the finished product!
The craft looks awesome too!!! I saw those shirts at Target--perfect use for them!
Have fun with your dad!

Umm....I would totally have done the buy the cheaper one and take back the other one thing. I've done that before actually. I'm cheap too :)

And I've decided...you need to come help me decorate our bedroom :)

I once bought a skirt I LOVED from the Gap for $40. I felt sick, literally sick to my stomach, so I returned it. Walked around the store and found the same skirt on the clearance rack for $11 and bought it. I don't think that's weird. I think that's smart shopping. Sounds like you and I have the same 'technique'!
