Weekend Whimsies?

I am sitting in a window. Not a window that looks out upon anything. No view. Just a time frame. A window of 9am to 1pm. A waiting window. I am waiting for my brand new bed to arrive. After testing it in the store last weekend. I cannot wait to lay down on it. I have a feeling that my children will feel the need to make themselves at home in my room. And it's quite possible that someone may need to stage an intervention to get me off of it.

But in the mean time...let's have some whimsies. Instead of some follies.

Plush or firm?

What size bed do you have?

How old is your bed?

comforter or quilt?

Print or solid?

Do you make your bed daily?

How many pillows do you sleep on?

Do you eat in bed? Watch TV? Read?

What kind of sheets are on your bed right now?

How many beds are in your house?

How rare- I'm the first to comment!I'd better hurry before someone sneaks in before me!

Plush or firm? Pillow top, thanks. our last bed was firm and I wanted to set fire to it.

What size bed do you have? Queen. This is also a reaction to our last bed, which was king, and almost ruined my marriage, due to the fact that I am married to a tiny leprechaun of a man and I couldn't even FIND him in that bed!

How old is your bed? New to us, but a hand me down.

comforter or quilt? Comforter, but I don't like it anymore. It has all these cool little designs on it, and the threads catch on EVERYTHING, inculding my scratchy scratchy feet.

Print or solid? Print, with the aforementioned overlay of tiny, grabby threads. But what I really want is something lush and colorful, with Morrocan influence.

Do you make your bed daily? {{hangs head in shame and hopes mom doesn't read thread}} no. BUT when I do make my bed I have to unmake it in the middle of the day, because my little takes her nap there.

How many pillows do you sleep on? 2, one for my head, one body pillow for support

Do you eat in bed? Watch TV? Read? All of the above, and use the laptop.

What kind of sheets are on your bed right now? Chartreuse. Not even kidding. But here's a dirty little secret... I have a wubby. Yep, a 400 count top sheet that goes on my side of the bed no matter WHAT'S on the rest of the bed.

(Aw, see, if I didn't take so darned long to formulate my answers, I'd have been first!)

Really firm- with a pillow top

Queen

I hva no Idea how old it is. It is new to me.

Comforter

One of each. (Actually they are duvet covers and neither one is on my comforter right now. They add too much weight/warmth.

No, I make it when I change my sheets or fold my laundry or have company coming.

one

No- nasty. No- if I try, I fall asleep. No- my husband goes to sleep early.

The top one is flannel- just the right weight when I kick the comforter off- and the bottom is cotton.

7 set up, and one in the attic.

GREAT post!
Currently we have a king-size bed and we are in need of a new one. It's not comfy at all. We are going to buy a queen because our new room is small - really small. I buy the softest sheets I can find. I adore organic bamboo sheets or a very high thread count of cotton sateen. Never ever a comforter, always a quilt.
I definitely like a bed to be made, but I like to change it often. I love loads of pillows on a bed, but I need to sleep with two and they need to be firm. My mattress also must be firm, but a feather mattress pad is the perfect thing for it. I don't like pillow tops because I'm a crazy mattress flipper.
We have 5 beds in our house currently.
A question that has come up very frequently in discussions with friends is to use or not use the top sheet. The debate is endless.

Plush or firm? I think it is firm with a pillow top.

What size bed do you have? Queen, but we need a king.

How old is your bed? I think it's about 6 or 7 years old now.

comforter or quilt? lightweight quilt for me, blanket for him - for the summer. In the winter, he takes my lightweight quilt and I get out the faux down comforter.

Print or solid? The mattress or the bedding? The mattress has a same color print on it (brocade-like I guess). The quilt is hand embroidered on solid yellow and white squares.

Do you make your bed daily? No. We don't even use top sheets. I spread the quilt or comforter out about 1/3 of the time.

How many pillows do you sleep on? 2 body pillows that we put across the whole top of the bed. He adds 2 or more to his side, but I use just the body pillows.

Do you eat in bed? Watch TV? Read? Rarely, often, sometimes.

My bed came right after I hit publish. And I have not been in it yet! It is beckoning me!

Plush...ultra pillow top. It is soooo cushy...three inches of foam cuushy. It's a Sealy - in their hotel line.

King. I had a queen when I was a teenager. Katie actually has that bed right now.

It's a few hours old ;-)

Quilt. It's a silk - so pretty - bluish/greenish. From Tar-jay.

Solid

Never. Even my kiddos don't. Drives my mother nuts. Well...it gets made if we have someone over who might venture upstairs. Except for Lizzy - cause she is like family and won't care :-)

Two. The fake down type.

I would love to eat popcorn in bed. But I seem to always get crumbs on Michael's side...and he objects. Yes on the TV. Absolutley on the reading.

Light purple, ginormous thread count soft sheets.

8. (Two kings, a queen, a full, and four twins - I have an uber guest room. Come visit!)

Aubrey said...

Yay for your new bed! I can't wait to hear how WONDERFUL your nights sleep was!

Plush

Queen but I'm shooting for that King

Our bed is ancient BUT our mattress is only about 3 years old.

Comforter. Down Comforter!

Solid White.

Yes, every morning as soon as I wake up. I'm anal like that.

I sleep with 3 pillows.

I eat, watch TV and read all at the same time. Always. LOL

The tee-shirt type. They are my fave!

1 Queen, 1 Full, 2 Twins and an airbed in the closet.

I can't believe you have 8 beds!!!!

LadyStyx said...

Firm, but I want plush. I sleep so much better on a nice soft pillowtop!

Queen size, I wanna go to a king when we move though.

neither in the summer, either in the winter...did that make sense?

Solids. I'd rather have prints but I can never find any pretty ones in the thread count I desire.

*giggles* nope...it stays messy. That's what the door's for!

Lula! said...

I want to be a professional sleeper when I grow up.

Here's my deets:

Plush and firm. Which is what my Tempur-Pedic is.

Our mattress is just over 4 years old--bought it when we built this house.

A quilt--velvet on top, satin underneath. Yeah, it's rather luxurious. (But the price was not, thankfully.)

Solid.

I make my bed the second I get out of it. If I accomplish nothing on any given day, at least I can say I made my bed.

I sleep on 1...then I have one over my head and one in my arms. So that's 3 total.

I don't eat in bed (usually), but I read every single night. Sometimes I watch TV, but that's rare.

I changed my sheets this morning--FIRST NIGHT ON FRESH SHEETS! Wahoo! Um...they're kind of a camel color. 500 TC. Northern Nights, from QVC.

There are 4 beds in our house. 4 sets of sheets to change. Good times.

Teri said...

Are you gonna post some pix of the new bed? Here's my stuff:


Plush or firm? Firm

What size bed do you have? With these long legs, kingsize all the way.

How old is your bed? Doug purchased it just before we met about 8 1/2 years ago.

comforter or quilt? A way too heavy comforter.

Print or solid? Kind of a muted print. I don't like it. I want something beautiful, silk and purple. How do I convince the man about that one?

Do you make your bed daily? Oh yes.

How many pillows do you sleep on? Just one.

Do you eat in bed? Watch TV? Read? Yes, yes, yes...and yes. :-)

What kind of sheets are on your bed right now? Some faded dark gray ones. Again, not something I picked out.
