There are certain unalienable rights [and responsibilities] when you get to be all grown up.  For instance, you have to pay your bills, but you can also spend [and save!] your money however you want.  You can get your own house, live in Alaska if you want, and buy a boat.  You can get married, and even have a baby, if you're into that sort of thing.  You can try new things and hopefully be mature enough to recognize that just because something fails doesn't mean that you are a failure.  Being a grown-up is great.  I exercised my right to purchase this week: I bought new sheets and bedding.  Not just any sheets; 450 count.  Maybe that isn't the nicest in the world, but it was a big step for me.  I have subjected my poor husband to sleeping on the same sheets and quilt I got when I graduated college.  We didn't even get new bedding when we got married.  I kept thinking "Oh, someday I'll get new bedding.  I don't really need it right now."  Trust me, I needed it.  YOU need it.  I just didn't understand the difference between my cheap sheets that I bought 5 years ago and the nice sheets I got this week.

Now on to purchasing a headboard...
Also, I wouldn't recommend sleeping in a full-sized bed once you're married.  After 3 years, it's getting kind of uncomfortable. 
Get yourself out there and do something grown up today!
