Bedtime Stories Become Nightstand Storage

What if you could have a nightstand made out of large books? And what if the binding of those books opened up into drawers? Would you buy one? Well, now you can! Hobby Lobby is currently selling them as storage pieces. (However, I must warn you that I have not had any luck finding it online. I Googled everything I could think of that might lead me to at least an image of it.)



I received this for my birthday and I love it! I rearranged my entire room for two days just so I could fit it. The surface space is limited but because I was able to shift things around and had more than two large drawers to store my stuff, the clutter has dwindled to a minimum. I still have room for my lamp, lotion, remote control (or clicker as I call it) and bedtime story.

Super cool gift for a bookworm like me!

Aside from the grammatical issues with this text, I felt I had to share it with my readers after my latest post. My friend Kyla and her mom went house hunting and found this written on a wall in one of the houses they toured.

For those of you who know me, know that my life has always revolved around love stories. All the books that I read and write involve some sort of romantic relationship. No matter what other idea I originally have in my head, romance seems to find it’s way in. In high school, I was known as the girl with the smutty romance novels I stole from my parents’ bedroom — mom’s side of the bed, of course! Being young, I didn’t focus on the trashy parts of the novels — that was too embarrassing. I instead loved reading the progression of relationships and the distinct moment in the story when I recognized love existing between the two characters (even through all the conflicts).


Valentine’s Day gives me the opportunity to celebrate my favorite thing in the world, even those years when I was a skeptic. But I’d come to realize that celebrating love is not limited to marriage, dating, and romance, it’s about anyone or anything you care about:

    • Family
    • Friends
    • Pets
    • Stories
    • Ideas
    • Art
    • Religion

Celebrate what/who you love, even if you’re single. The Beatles had it right when they sang, “All you need is love…”

I felt loved this afternoon when my wonderful boyfriend stopped over during his lunch break just to see me! He led me to believe that he hated Valentine’s Day because it was “just a stupid Hallmark holiday.”

And then he went all out…
