Our new Wal-Mart bedding

February 27, 2012

Before Christmas Neil came to me, concerned that our bedding was too girlie…

When I bought it about 2 years ago I remember thinking how pretty it was. So, yea, I guess Neil is right. It is a little girlie 😉 We talked about buying new bedding as a Christmas present to each other but we didn’t get around to it until last week. Neil and I were doing our weekly grocery shopping when I reminded him of our Christmas present. We wandered over to the bedding and linen section and Neil picked out the first gender neutral quilt he saw. I was ready to veto his choice but then I realized two things: it was the only gender neutral quilt there AND it was actually something I would consider purchasing. In other words, he did a really good job.

Like I said, it’s something I would consider purchasing. After considering, I decided that even though I didn’t LOVE it, it would work for now. And it wasn’t expensive so we bought it. It’s a small price to pay to make Neil happy. Now, I’m not sure that he was “unhappy”, but he was at least unhappy with our bedding. Without further adieu, our new bedding!

If I cared, and I don’t because I hope not to be in this apartment for much longer, I would change out our curtains to some that match our new bedding instead of our old bedding. The green will just have to do.

    I know lots of people have the mad hate on for WalMart, but I think you did an awesome score! I do like some of their stuff – especially if you’re not swimming in money and need something.

    Nice, classic look. The comfiest sheets I’ve ever purchased have been from Walmart :S They were jersey sheets and I paid 40 bucks for the entire set.
