Help a Girl Out!

Update: Thanks to all my Martha Stewart like readers out there. I have another confession to make....I use to secretly dream of being Martha Stewart...squash casserole and all. I tried to even get my haircut like her in college and it was disastrous. And I bought a cool apron and never wore it cause I did not want to get it dirty. Now I just buy her sheets. Then she went to prison and had to wear an ankle bracelet and all so I moved on to another person to stalk...but I cannot tell who cause it is embarrassing. Wanna guess?

But I made a decision on the bedspreads and I could never have done it without you cause you all are THE smartest and sweetest people I know. But please realize I know NO ONE in my new state, so it is really a hollow compliment. But I do love you all to pieces.

My decision has been made and it was SO obvious after I read your comments. I never stopped to think about the fact that I do share my bed with Indiana Jones and I should take his thoughts and interests into consideration. And I do think the first one screams my name MOLLY...MOLLY...and it completely is in my comfort zone and I need to branch out so I chose #2 for its luxury that I deserve. And I think it is romantic so IJ liked it. And it makes me feel like I just walked into a luxurious hotel and am going to be pampered. So #2 is on my bed right now...(My Jr High humor made me laugh at that statement.)

HOWEVER, I did not abandon #1 cause I cannot stand of anyone to have their feelings hurt or not feel a part of the group. SO, I ordered #1 for Eldest Twerp's room. I think it screams her name and she needs a new comforter and her fav color is blue and I think she will love it.


So, I thank you from the bottom of my heart and I will post pics when I have them all set up. XXXOOO

I need a new comforter for my bed due to the fact Middle Twerp cut mine into strips to use as bandages for his wounded dinosaurs. Let me just say the mystery of why the dinos are extinct is now solved. I have shopped online and unless I want to spend $8421 I am going to Wal Mart or Target cause I am so classy like that. And when people come over I will say "Oh this old thing? I do not remember where I got it. Honey, was it Bed Bath and Beyond or Pottery Barn?"

This is option 1.
It screams that I am carefree and I make homemade lemonade and shop at a Farmer's Market and only eat organic. In this bed I sleep in shorts and a tee shirt...a Bon Jovi tee. It also screams summer to me...with windows open and fresh air and county life at its best. In this bed my name would be Molly and I would wear pigtails and listen to the Scorpions.
This is option 2.
It screams luxury to me. It makes me feel pampered and romantic. Just FYI, my walls are this mocha color and my bed is walnut and had some wrought iron on it. Anyways, my name is Chantal is this bed and I sleep in a silk nightie and sip martinis and have a thick southern drawl and call you darling and I might even have a white fluffy dog named Honey and she sleeps at the foot of the bed...on the floor. And I get pedis weekly which makes me want to buy it yesterday. Help! What is your vote...or do you have a better idea?


PS They are both $80...I KNOW!! Unbelievable. Option one comes with more "stuff". I like to keep you completely informed.

I vote for option #1!

Brandy said...

Hard one! Option #1 looks like my old bedding, when I went through a Shabby Chic phase, from Target of course...Option #2 looks like my bedding now. I like both...but Option #1 does scream summer!

ptamom3 said...

LOVE #1- it looks like you said: carefree and springy, compared to #2, which kind of looks stuffy and almost like it should be in a really nice B&B. #2 is not bad, just not my style.

Kim said...

So Molly, how do you like your new comforter set? I'll bet the roses remind you of the bouquet that stranger at the farmer's market sent you just this morning.

Lucky Girl!

I'm more of a "molly". #1 Have you tried JC Penny's? They can have some good deals!

chocolatechic said...

Number 1 is the one that I, personally would pick.

spanki said...

i would typically choose #1, so in that case, throw caution to the wind... go w/ #2, go with #2! it just creates a feeling of being in a 5 star hotel in that offers a cabana boy that gives foot massages and feeds you grapes on demand! go with #2 please! i want to know what it feels like to sleep with a cabana boy...oops, i mean... in a bed of pure luxury!!

Working Mom said...

I like #2 the best. I am madly in love with that black print, whatever it's called. My friend has that same bedding and I've seen it on her bed in real life and it is soooo pretty!

I like #1, but what would IJ say? Cause I know what my man would be sayin, and I can tell you that Molly wouldn't want to hear it. That being said, we all know the man has no say so in decorating, but I'm just sayin' if you were to consider his input, what would he think about the abundant purple flowers?

theotherblonde said...

I like option 1, but have you looked online at JCPenney? Just asking

Working Mom said...

yeah....no that was a throw back to christmas vacaiton...i can't even remember where in the movie she says it, but ellen says "forgive my husband, he knows not what he does"....maybe its the part where the SWAT team comes in and she's holding his crotch?? i don't know. i've only seen it 2.6 million times and it kind of all runs together.

and we are totally long lost sisters.

Pony Girl said...

Hmm, Molly, I prefer #1! I love that look. It's definitely more hubby so you might want to run it by IJ (or not?!)
I love the shabby chic look!!
I would also try Linens N Thing, and Bed, Bath and Beyond.

I think that #1 looks more Twerp/Jeter-dog friendly :)

Jen said...

Go with #2, Luxury hotel sounds good right about now. I agree with working mom would IJ sleep in #1? My cowboy would no way sleep in that girlie bed. But, I do think it is pretty.

Treasia said...

I would go with option 2 simply because it looks more masculine than feminine to me. More of the two of you in style than number 1.

hope4grace said...

#2, cause it looks like a man sleeps there too..........

Jen said...

Ya, a win win situation. I hope the eldest twerp likes it.

Working Mom said...

I still love Martha. I ain't hatin' just 'cause she done time.

Your new stalkee? Hhhmmmm.........Rachel Rae? She's so darn cute you just can't help but stalk her!
