Cooling Things Off

I looooooove the feeling of sleeping in a big fluffy down comforter. There's nothing like being completely enveloped by a big fluffy blanket when you first wake up. Russ was a little reluctant to get a down comforter, but I assured him he'd loooooooove it too. And he does. Except for one problem... we are in Texas, where it started hitting 90 degrees early March. So, for these warmer months I knew we had to find an alternative to our big fluffy comforter to cool things off.

I had just the thing in mind.

I've been eying a particular coverlet for a good 5 or 6 months now, and when Megan and I made our aforementioned trip to Target, I decided to just make the plunge and buy the darn coverlet. And I am oh-so-happy I did. I'm practically in love.


It's the perfect weight, I can use all the same throw pillows, and it is covered in grey and yellow happiness. I wonder if I'll ever get over my grey and yellow obsession? Probably not. When we unwrapped the coverlet for the first time, I almost shouted for joy when there was a bonus underside on this perfect new blanket. And that's when I feel deeper in love.


I realized I'm probably sounding completely ridiculous, but walking by my bed seriously makes me grin from ear to ear. It's all about those little things my friends. And those grey sheets? Yep, those are from Target, too. The Dwell Studio line at Target is just my style, and luckily doesn't break the bank compared to other high-end lines.

I am just so glad we decided to cool things off.

I have LONG had my eye on that same quilt. :) So pretty! I love the underside. Oh and p.s., love those sheets too - they are the same ones we bought for Eli's big boy room.

Hope you don't mind me spying on you... its just your blog is so fun to read! (I hope you remember our brief overlap in the Wiseman ward or this comment will be creepy.) Anyway, I love your posts - the crafty ones, decorator ones, and just your views on life. Good luck with the big move!
Take care, Kimberli

I have tried to justify buying that same coverlet for months. I love it! I wish they had it in a shower curtain because I just painted a bathroom light gray. Oh so jealous - and the surprise of the other side is just too much. Hope you enjoy!

Camille, so this is totally random but I saw the link to this post on the side of your blog...and I thought to myself "my, that looks like my quilt..." and then I clicked on the post and realized it was my same quilt...so then I scrolled down and saw your sheets to...yup, my exact sheets. A little weird? Anyways, hope all is well.
