When I was in dental assisting classes, PPE stood for Personal Protective Equipment. For the sake of this post, it stands for Purple People Eater.

Prepare yourself. Following are pictures of my purple bedroom set. Purple.

Remember this post during the summer? Well it's happened. Actually, it happened a while ago. But now it's debuting on my blog. I'm letting you inside my room a little bit. It still needs a lot of work but once it was decided that I would be moving to Omaha, I quit adding decor and hangings and anything else that helps a bedroom feel a little more roomy.

Oh and.. all this cuteness will not be making the trek to Omaha. Sad... but my darling fiance laughs at it. He will NOT sleep in a purple bed. Or store his clothes in a purple dresser. Or even put his alarm clock on a purple night stand. Therefore, I hope to sell it. I just don't think I'll be able to get what I put into it...

Pretend you don't see all those cords. Just look at my bedspread and how stinkin cute it is!

Oh and.. curtains are purchased but I'm saving them for Omaha. I'm lame.

Now you have officially met the Purple People Eater. If you feel that it would be fitting in your home, let me know. Otherwise, it's going to stay at my mothers for a few years, all alone.

As I sit here and eat my 5th cookie of the day, I decide that I want to share a little thought I had.
It's a church thought.
It's Sunday.
It's fitting.
Today in church I was playing with my moms new ipad and decided to read Elder Uchtdorfs Forget Me Not talk. It's such a warming talk and at the end he says..

"Sisters, we love you. It is my prayer and blessing that you will never forget that you are truly precious daughters in God's kingdom..."

Now I just need to remember to come back to that comment on those days that I'm feeling down in the dumps and overwhelmed.
Thank heavens for our amazing church and church leaders!
