The color looks amazing with the lamps and carpet and we are looking forward to adding in some new art and throw pillows. Which I am sure will be discussed as we turn off the tv/laptops and enjoy our new bedding and a little pillow talk (pun intended).
I mentioned last week that we had picked out some new sheets and pillows for ourselves for Christmas. And although I promised myself and was adamant with Chris that we would wait until Christmas to open them…we only lasted until last night. I justified it with the fact that we wouldn’t even be home for Christmas to put them on our bed, and he followed up with, “Yeah, plus we ALREADY know what it is. There’s no use in dragging them all the way to Rexburg.” So with smirks on our faces because we had cheated the system we tore open our presents like we had no idea what they were. We gave each other kisses for being so thoughtful, and made our “new” bed.
And can I just say we love the new extra firm king sized pillows?! They totally beat our last mini, skinny, totally-flat, need-at-least-three-and-an-arm pillows we used to have. Not to mention, the pillowcases had zippers on them–SHARP zippers that we frequently snagged our arms on! That’s no way to sleep. No, we’ll take our 500 thread count slate blue sheets and matching pillowcases (zipper-free) any
day night. And although 500 thread count usually is synonymous with a higher price tag, we picked up the sheets at Ross for less than $40 and the two oversized pillows for about $10 each. That price tag mixed with previous sharp, flat pillows makes us wonder why we waited so long to enjoy such luxury.
