Buy a new bed and turn our bedroom into a sleeping sanctuary.
If someone were to look in our bedroom they'd likely assume it was a college boy's first bedroom after leaving the frat house. It's sad. We sleep on a queen sized box spring and mattress. On the floor. We've said countless times that we will at least get a frame for it, but just never got around to doing it. Honestly? It really doesn't make a difference to me, plus it's lower to the ground for the puppies to jump up on. The bed was Jesse's first bed out of college. And I think it belonged to his brother before that. It has an Olympic symbol on it for cryin' out loud. From the late 90s. So yeah. The bed is not coming with us to the next house. Just not happening. We're 30 and 32 now. Time for a big kid bed. Any mattress shopping tips? I think I saw a Groupon for one once...
Make our bed everyday.
Jesse and I sleep under two separate covers. Either our mothers were terrible at teaching us to share, or we have way different body temps requiring completely different blankets for slumber. I like a big fluffy comforter year round. Jesse can sleep under a sheet of parchment paper and still sleep like a log. With a fan blasting. The two blanket thing will no longer be my excuse for avoiding bed making. We'll also spring for a new mattress pad, and use matching fitted sheet, pillowcases, top sheet. And they will all be washed weekly. I am lucky if I do it once a month now. And that's embarrassing. Again, we are 30 and 32. Time to act like adults. Adults that make their bed. Daily.
Plant a garden.
Home grown produce. Need I say more? I might even up the ante and start composting. And stop shaving my pits. And brew my own Kambucha. But first, a garden.
Buy new towels that match.
We never registered for nice, fluffy towels when we got married. We did, however, register for a kegerator. It's called priorities. We clearly had ours in order. #beerme.
Have suitable Jungle quarters.
Jungle quarters? Like make our home look like a jungle? Not exactly. Jesse's bestie is Jungle. He sleeps at our house roughly 2-3 times a month. The guy deserves his own bedroom. No confirmation if it will be an air mattress on the lawn.
OK. That's it for now. Maybe I will add more later.
Did you change anything drastically when you moved into your first home?
