Okay, my sister challenged her readers to show pictures of their bedroom. I would be sad to show you a picture of how it looks today. However, here is a sad picture of it the day I cleaned it up and got new bedding for C's birthday. I took this with my cell phone to show a couple people the new bedding -- so it doesn't really show our room at all. But you can see the unmatched valances! Bonus!
(His only request was that I clean our room and give him his own hamper so he doesn't have to walk to the other side of the room with his dirty clothes. I got new bedding, new lampshades, forgot about our window valances that match our old bedding, new hamper and I cleaned the bedroom, bathroom and closet -- all with the kids' help. He was shocked and amazed that we got it done all while he was at work.)
P.S. Sorry, I know this is a lot of posts in one day. I don't mean to overwhelm you all. But please read all the posts very thoroughly -- or else! Just kidding. Most of you probably won't even get down to this P.S. As for the rest of you, thanks for sticking through it!
