The Perfect Sheets

Hey All!! Hope ya'll are having a great week. I have so many great things to share with you, but having a hard time finding the time to blog lately. Chris and I just got back from visiting his mom in Sacramento to go skiing. I've come to the realization that I am completely out of shape. A short walk to the first lift left me out of breath. After about an hour of skiing, my legs were burning and I was completely winded. I know the altitude can really affect you, but I must say I'm too young to say,

"I've  Fallen and I can't get up!!!"

That was exactly me. Oh well..I've learned I need to prepare better for next year. I did conquer some blue runs which made me pretty proud. Much better than my walk down hill last year:)

Anywho, it feels so good to be back home and to sleep in our own bed. With our bed on my mind, I wanted to talk a little about bedding. What really makes a bed is the bedding. This is the last place you want to skimp out on. Good quality sheets and blankets are a must. If I had it my way, I would be sleeping and dreaming in a bed outfitted by Belle Notte. I absolutely adore, but a little out of my price range.

If your looking for something a little more affordable, you can usually find a Microplush blankets from Home Goods or Target. They are relatively inexpensive starting at $20 for a twin. Super cozy and soft to have in the Winter.

The next thing you'll need are some AMAZING sheets! I can't say more about these sheets and you'll never believe where I found them. Of all places... the Sleep Number Bed Store. When Chris and I were contemplating on buying a Sleep Number Bed, we bought a pair of their Lyocell Sheets they had on sale for $150.00. The BEST money spent in a long time. They are super soft and wash really nicely. They even have corner elastic bands that wrap around the corner of your mattress so you never have to worry about them popping off. We bought the Stone and it's a great color!

I had bought a pair of the Restoration Hardware 600 TC Sateen Sheets several years ago, and honestly, they are the worst sheets I've ever purchased. Not knowing when I bought them, I learned that sateen sheets sleep hotter than non-sateen sheets, just FYI. So if you typically get hot at night, don't buy sateen. Also, the first time I washed them, little lint balls formed all over the sheets and looked awful, especially on the white. For the money you pay, there are so many better choices on the market, including these Lyocell Sheets. If your going to buy bedding at RH, I would stick with the their Duvets and Shams.

You must try them out and tell me what you think. Do you have a pair of great sheets that didn't cost you big bucks? I'd love to hear where you found them.

Have a great rest of your week!
