That’s right: QUEEN.

As in QUEEN BED. I am moving up in the world!

The decision to get a new, bigger, better bed was made a while back. I had been sleeping on my full bed since I could remember and my parents were gracious enough to let me take it with me to Chicago for my first few years. But it was time. I purchased my new QUEEN bed back on Black Friday from Carson’s Furniture. I loved my sales associate Toni — she even gave me a hug she was so excited for me (or maybe she was excited about her commission?) …regardless…


My parents wanted to keep it for my bedroom in Iowa. ROAD TRIP! My cousin Chris has a truck and between him and my brother, I had two movers and a truck … perfection. Added bonus, it would get my brother and me home for the annual Petersen Christmas party.

We successfully got my old bed back in one piece, had a bomb weekend at home … and then came the fun part: my new bed delivery!!

I’ve been going to bed an hour earlier just to hang in my new QUEEN bed. It’s amazing what an adult purchase can do to a person. 2012 has seriously been the best.

Love. Love. Love.


About thetwentysixthyear

September 6, 2011: I turn twenty-six years old. I live and work in downtown Chicago and really can't complain about too much -- great family, great friends, great life. So this is my personal blog. Experiencing and living my twenty-sixth year. I have no idea what to expect or where I'll be one year from now ... but one thing is certain: I will enjoy the ride.
