Back To School

Savy was so glad to go back to school yesterday! I finally felt well enough to go back to the gym yesterday (first time in over a week), so I worked out after I dropped her off. Then I came home and did a little housework.

As you probably know, my nesting instinct has kicked in big time. I've been hoping to get a bed for my birthday. We haven't had a real bed since we upgraded to a king-size when I was expecting Savy...we've just got our mattress and box springs on a metal frame with no head or footboard. When I picked Savy up, we headed to Henco to look at beds. I've been thinking about a four-poster, but I just can't find one that is exactly what I want...Jon doesn't particularly favor that style either. So I think I've settled on this one. It reminds me a little of Mom's bed, but hers is massive. This display is a queen. I think a king will look great in our bedroom.

What do you think? Henco always has great prices on beds, and this one is really reasonable. I have issues spending large chunks of money on furniture, but I've been wanting a real bed for over 3 years...I think it's time to break down and buy one.

The wind was terrible yesterday. When we got home, we let Savy fly her kite...she's been wanting to do that for weeks. She got bored pretty quickly, though, so I wound up flying it. Jon was impressed with my kite-flying skills...some of the neighborhood kids even rode their bikes to the cove to watch. Savy picked out the dragon kite.

I think the bed is beautiful. I also think you have been very patient about getting one. I also think you deserve one!! Your beautiful bedroom needs a beautiful bed.
