Awesome Blossom

When Chris and I flew our respective nests and moved in together, I promised myself two things: one- I would never wear frumpy sleepwear (guilty!) and two- I would never purchase a flowery bedspread for our bedroom. I figured it was only fair to stay gender neutral in our new communal space. I've kept my promise for over 3 years without any trouble or temptation...that is until I heard the siren song of this little son of a sandwich pictured below.

I may have to break my promise. 


  1. That is super awesome. I think Chris can flirt with his "girly" side to approve

  2. Do it do it do it!! I mean, promises are meant to be broken, right? ...Wait, that doesn't sound quite right. :)
    It's super cute so good luck. My semi-flowery bedding is in the bag in the closet. I'm waiting for the perfect Dan's-not-paying-any-attention-to-the-home-decor time! :)

  3. I don't find that overly floral. I think a man can sleep comfortably in that (I know I could!)

  4. ooohh, me likey! it's not TOO girly either. go for it!

  5. ha "son of a sandwich" - that's a new one to me.
    I made the same vow but it has been quite easy to keep as I have never been a floral person HOWEVER I have a weakness for mod-ish flowers of the vintage/retro persuasion.

  6. @Jenn Majors: I like the way you think! When's the next big video game release??? You know the boys won't pay attention to anything but the xbox, food, and "the john." hehe
