Big Girl Bed

A couple months ago I bought a Groupon for $150 off of a new mattress at Mattress Firm. Seriously, if you haven't gotten on the Groupon band wagon then you probably live in a cave somewhere. You should really move out of your cave and sign up. They have great deals. Anyhow, yesterday we went to buy Emma Mae a new mattress for her big girl bed. The crib we bought her converted to a full size bed and I've been itching to redecorate her room for awhile now.

At first, I was looking everywhere for something very sweet and girly. I was thinking pink/purple butterflies or flowers or something. But I never really found anything I loved. And let's face it, this is all about me. Emma Mae doesn't really get a say in this room. It's my time. In five years we'll redecorate again and she can choose what she likes.

I started noticing all of the cute zebra print stuff out there and I picked up a few things here and there when I found them on sale. So, here's the almost finished product. I think I'm going to take back that curtain and get another one that's pink with a stripe of the zebra on it. I have a few more trips to make to Hobby Lobby for some wall hangings and we're done. What do you think? I didn't make it look too harloty did I? I don't want her to have the room of a harlot. Try to picture everything without the smudgy fingerprints on my camera lens!
