Mine! All mine!!

So remember the gray and yellow Bedspread I was eyeing in this post


Here's the story: 

I frequent a wedding message board called the Knot (judge all you want), and I get a page from a girl informing me that the bedspread I have been lusting over is for sale on Rue LaLa. (For those of you who don't know, Rue LaLa is an online private store of stuff exclusively on sale, like a lot on sale) So the bedspread I really wanted was originally $350. I knew there was NO way I would be getting this, until I saw it on Rue LaLa for only $150!!! How do you beat $200 off!?!?! SO I put on my bedroom/puppydog eyes and looked at Andy and asked if I could have it. He said no. 

So I dropped it. It made me sad, but that is a LOT for a blanket. 

So I woke up, and looked to see if it was still available, and the sale was going for only another hour and a half. I put back on my eyes and I looked at Andy, and he said "Lets do the math..." So we added in how much overtime I got this week (4.5 hours!!) plus how much he could make in the next two weeks before we move, minus the cost of moving, plus my next paycheck and came out on top, so he gave me the okay. 

I gleefully pushed the "Buy Me" button and dropped the most money I have ever spent on a blanket. 


Here she is again, in case you forgot!
