Confessions: Under Attack

Here is a special Confession story from last night...
So last night we had a random crazy thunderstorm. I was having a really hard time sleeping. Its hot in my room and my fan is making an awful sqeaking noise so I turned it off. I was going in and out of conciousness all night. Around 5:30am, I heard aloud boom. I figured they were testing the fireworks (mind you I was half-asleep so my logic was not all there).
I started to fall back asleep when...BBBBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMM!!!!!! The LOUDEST sound I have ever heard in my life. The house shook a little. I sat straight up and started freaking out. I honestly thought that Ocean City was being bombed. I was so scared. I grabbed my phone and started to look online at news stories to find out what happened. In the mean time I was hearing tapings on my window and thought it was debris falling from a house exploding. Then I thoght, well i just happened so it prolly wont be online yet. So I called Patrick to seeif he was ok and if he heard the explosion too. He was told me he hadnt heard a thing and to go to bed. But it too me a while to go back to sleep. I curled up under my covers, my heart pounding waiting for another bomb to explode and kill me.
When I woke up in the morning I realized what an idiot I had been! It was just thunder! and the "debris" was rain! So weird! It felt so real but i must have been half awake! I told some of the kids in primary this stor today and they all laughed at me :) It is kind of funny looking back. I cant believe I thought that! hah


So as some of you may know, I have a very obsesive personality. One of my latest obsessions has been bedding. Sounds strange I know. Seeing as the wedding is coming up soon, I have been thinking a lot about things I will need for the new place, one of which is new bedding. I do have a comforter set that I like...see previous post "bargain shopper"

But Patrick has a great down comforter that I love. The only bad thing is the duvet cover he has to go over it. Its really old and yellowing and the buttons never stay closed. I have been looking at lot of different sites looking for new duvet covers. I found a couple that I like.
I really like this one! Its from Bed Bath and Beyond. They dont carry the purple one at the store near me so I drove all the way to the cumberland mall to check it out. I love the color. I love the rusching (spelling?). And I love the fabric! really soft. And they have the same design in white and dark grey. And the price wasn't awful, $140. But then I realized that it was only the duvet cover, nothing else. You would need to buy pillow shams seperately, $40 for each pillow case! Crazy!
After checking a few more places I found a set that I like at target. Its very similar, but I'm not sold on the color
Heres a link to get a better pic...
The color is a really light grey or a light pink. Both of which I am not really sold on. Its hard because I have no clue what the actual bed looks like. Patricks family is giving us a bed set. All I know is that its an antique and has been in the family forever.
I think I will just have to wait to see it before making a real decision. I dont want my bedding to clash with the bed style.

Can you tell I am beyond excited to decorate a house :)
