Yaya the Builder

For the past month I have been trying to get the guest bedroom/office set up. You know, for all our company? ha! Well, you have to be prepared, right?

Anywoo...I had the mattresses and boxspring but needed the frame. So, I took my happy self to the mattress store and bought a queen size frame. The lady promised me it was easy to set up. She looked at me like I was going to set it up or something.  I think I looked at her like...Um, I have a husband that will do that!  But, I acted like I knew what I she was talking about.


Troy has been on this outage at work and I have hardly seen him. I knew that frame was going to sit awhile.  He kept promising me he would do it.  I knew he was too busy so we all just walked past it, stubbing our toe on the box and running into the stupid thing in the night.  So, the box sat....for a month. Or so.
Until last week....

Everyone hold on to your hat. I put the fool thing together! The frame was the easy part.  It ended up wrestling those heavy mattresses onto the frame was the worst part and it totally sent me into a sweaty tail spin.  If you would have had a hidden camera in there I am sure we would have won some major money. 

I was so excited for Troy to come home and see what I had done. I had felt like such a big girl....yes, he spoils me.  So, when he got home the kids and I gently coaxed him into the guest room/office where we told him he really needed to check his email.  The kids were just as excited as I was. SURPRISE! Mission accomplished...I think he was suprised.  He couldn't believe that I had put the whole bed together.  I got a little kiss. 

It had taken me all day to clean the room, organize all the bills, shred old checks from 1998, and put things back in the desk in a more organized fashion. I really love how it turned out. I still have some decorating to do but the bed is up and ready for company.

OK so who's coming?

Way to go Yaya!! I'm still laughing over the "shredded checks from 1998" bit, but way to go! I can't wait to see, I can't wait to SEE your house!
