the weekend turned out better than I had hoped and Mom and I came home successful from the Pottery Barn Outlet.
This is our new headboard. It was one of the few queen sized headboards or beds at the outlet (They had a ton of kings and california kings, so if you need one, go! They are insanely discounted!) and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. It is not white (as I had hoped to originally get) but I think the dark mahogany stain will look great with our baby blue walls and navy blue summer blanket.
It was also discounted from $499 to $240, so it was a win all around!
We did run into kind of a pickle when it came to getting it home, as we drove my Moms Jeep Grand Cherokee, which is big, but not fit-a-headboard-in-the-back big...so we had to get it up and on top of the car. Little did we know that Pottery Barn has a policy of NOT putting things in or on your car for you for liability purposes...so Mom and I were stuck in the back loading dock area barely able to lift the headboard on our own, much less get it on top of the car. Luckily, the super nice PB manager saw our struggle and told us she would "close the door and her eyes" and if her loading dock guy happened to help us while she wasn't out there, there was nothing she could do. So, awesomely, she shut the door, he hoisted the bed onto the car and we were off. We drove home slowly (we had it all strapped down with bungee cords, but that didn't make me feel anymore comfortable about this hulking thing on our roof) and luckily Mr. Pit and I were able to get it down off the car with no problems and up to our guest bedroom.
The second part of our adventure is getting a bed frame, but I am planning on checking Craig's List this morning for any cheap ones, then if that doesn't work I will order the one from the PB website (so at least we are guaranteed it will fit). So, we should have the mattress and box spring up off the floor by the end of the week, and I can't wait to sleep on our new bed!
Otherwise, we didn't end up seeing a movie on Saturday, we went to Benihana for dinner and then came home to watch Season 2 of Weeds that came from Netflix. I freaking love that show.
Some fun stuff and not so fun stuff on tap this week, fun is dinner with my friend E on Tuesday and the Lilly Sale as well as the Father/Daughter golf tournament on Sunday, but not so fun is a funeral on Thursday. So, we'll get through this week one day at a time, as it's all we can do.
Hope you all had great weekend!
