I hope you had a great weekend. We spent some time at the Four Seasons in Palm Beach celebrating our 7th Anniversary. The room and service were exceptional. I can get used to someone bringing me cold towels and frozen grapes while I lay on the beach anytime. Well, sleeping in the luxurious bed they had to offer, with an enormous down comforter, I woke up HOT. It got me thinking about how this happens to me often. I got home and checked my comforter/quilt to see what material it was made of, and had an aha moment....100% polyester. It's an oven cover. No wonder there is no circulation going on while sleeping. We keep dropping the air and it is currently at 67 at night and we still wake up hot. I had been wanting a new comforter/quilt and I guess now I NEED one, of the 100% cotton variety. I have been eyeing some of the quilt/comforters at West Elm and could not justify the purchase, so I waited. Well, I'm off to West Elm today to do a little shopping. This polka dot one is on clearance. I think I saw it at the store last week (none left online). It looks comfy and fresh, which is exactly what I want. I'm not worried about the South Florida winters getting too cold, I can always just throw a throw (hmm) on top for those 2.2 cold days we get.
