12. It’s my birthday! Here’s what I want…

Whoop whoop!

I’m 28 today!  I know that’s not a “special” age, but I feel really loved this year.  So many people have called, texted, and sent Facebook messages, and a bunch of my close Milwaukee friends will be joining me and my husband for dinner tonight at one of my favorite restaurants: Maxie’s Southern Comfort.  I’m already salivating over the thought of fried green tomatoes and a perfectly poured Pimm’s Cup!

I know I haven’t written anything in FOREVER.  I’m so sorry!  To make up for it (somewhat, at least), I thought I would tease you a little with my birthday wishlist.  Well, I really only want two things: a Keurig and a new bed.  Specifically THIS bed:

Adler Tufted Platform 56" Bed (Restoration Hardware)

Adler Tufted Platform 56″ Bed (Restoration Hardware)

I seriously love how chic and elegant it is!  But let’s talk about the price tag.  It’s on SALE for $2195; the original cost is $2595!  Um…what?!  I would laugh, but the “want” I have going on is strong.  So what do I do about it?  I plannnnnnn.  Get ready for it: I am going to BUILD this bed.  I know you think that I am totally wack-a-doodle, but my husband and I have already built a table (tutorial coming soon!)…and that thing required gluing, screwing, sanding, staining, and waxing.  This will only require gluing, screwing, and stapling of fabric, with a little bit of sewing required for the tufted buttons.  I know that I can pull this off!  I even went so far as to plan out all the cuts (based on two different building plans I found online) and estimate costs.  Materials should cost me around $300-350, and the whole thing could probably be done over a weekend.  Wishful thinking, but I KNOW I can get it done.  My poor husband must be getting tired of all the “projects” I bring home!
