I am the world’s lightest sleeper. I would venture to say that if my sleep was monitored, it would show that I rarely dip into deep sleep. If I don’t wake up at least twice a night, I’m very fortunate. All of this basically means that I HAVE to have a very serene and comfortable place when I lay my head down at night.
With the recent heat wave, I’ve been struggling more and more with what to do with my thermostat. Usually this time of year I rely on those cold spring nights to give my thermostat a break. Unfortunately I’ve been experiencing more of a “summer” night temp. Combine this with poor ventilation in my bedroom and you’ll have one sleepless girl. I’ve been waking up burning up and then freezing when I kick off the covers. The quilt I had on my bed seemed light enough, but throw another person into the equation and I’m burning up. (To my defense, Alex was just as uncomfortable.) I knew it was time to bite the bullet and get a lighter comforter.
Bed Bath and Beyond, although expensive, has this great tradition of carrying the same shade of blue in several of their products. So when I stopped by after work and found this coverlet, I was pleased to realize it was the same shade of blue as one of my former, more bulky comforters. This was great because I had also picked up a decorative pillow with this shade several years ago, but could no longer use it with my current bed set. Bedroom make-over!
You’ll probably notice that I don’t have pictures on my walls, which is also due to my sleep troubles. Anyway, the first night with this coverlet was like heaven. I woke up once and felt so rested! I wasn’t hot at any point in the night and felt so comfortable. My trusty standing fan may have also played a part in that…
Oh and I lied. I do have ONE picture in my bedroom. I would be embarrassed, but I’m actually pretty secure in my
old lady unique taste.
Man is Alex lucky to be with such a youthful, free spirit.
