Remember earlier in the yr when I blogged about my 2 money savings plans. The one being that every time I had a $5 bill I stashed it for a large purchase at the end of the year? Well, looks like the end of the year is here. We've have decided to use $240 in $5 bills we've saved to purchase a pool for the back yard. Nothing fancy, just 15x48 but a pool none the less. I'm also going to be using $170 or $175 in $5 bills to renew my zoo pass in June some time. That's pretty much going to wipe out our $5 spot savings but these are two large purchases for our family that will offer us cheap fun. :)

As of yesterday, 5.11.13, Bayleigh's room is complete! The final details are painted!
This hutch was white with Ivy painted on it.
Here's the wall that I was most excited for! I hired a friend that was a couple of years younger than me in high school to paint these "vines", for lack of a better word.
Bayleigh picked out her bedding from IKEA.
This duvet, not the zebra sheets. It was displayed in a room with pink walls and that's what she wanted. I wasn't a fan of the pink walls there, they were more burgundy than anything, so I told her she could do pink if I had the final say on the color.
Then I saw this, link and source not provided because I don't know how to do it from my phone, but I saw this on Pinterest.
Immediately I fell in love and thought it would be so awesome in black! Ugh, where could I pull off a black wall in my house???? Bayleigh's room--duh!
In order to tie the black in though I needed something more. That's where the zebra print sheets came into play.
Now, I'm no Martha Stewart, but I think these are pretty darn cute together!
I also knew that because there would be a black wall that I would use black curtains and rods. I also wanted a zebra print area rug for her room but really found while shopping online that it would be out of my price range. I mentioned my want for the rug on Facebook and a guy on there reminded me of a store called Garden Ridge. I LOVE that store! So we went up there on day to look around and much to my pleasure we found...
THE EXACT rug I was wanting!!!! AND!, it was only $29.99! SCORE! We also found the black curtains, they weren't so cheap!
