I have a love for all things fluffy/snuggly/soft. I'm not talking dogs or babies here (although I have a soft spot for those things too). If I was forced to go shopping for clothes, towels, blankets, etc. without being allowed to feel everything, I'd never go shopping.

When I shop, people run away.

Waaaaay back when I first graduated college I bought myself a cheap, yet awesome, fluffy comforter. It was the kind that you put a duvet cover on. I loved the heck out of that thing until the one day earlier this year I decided to wash it (yes, I'd washed it several times before) and a corner of it got burned up in the washing machine. Yeah, I didn't know that could happen either. It has since transitioned from being my comforter to being the dog's bed since she loves fluffy things too, and doesn't care what they look like.

Soon after I bought my house and gave the dog one of my most prized possessions, I decided to go the Target clearance route and buy a regular comforter (that didn't need a duvet cover because let's face it, those things are a pain in the ass to put on and take off).

It seems nice enough.

This morning I hit my breaking point. It was the first cooler night in the house (the dog was so far under the covers when I woke up shivering at 2am all I could see was her tail) and it just wasn't cutting it. I had to get up and put another blanket on the bed. This never happened with my fluffy comforter! Since it's really not even that cold yet (63° in the house when I woke up), the comforter gotsta go!

So after being a weak, WEAK person and turning on my heat this morning (yes, I'm ashamed), I ordered a new fluffy comforter, with a duvet cover to follow after payday. WEAK!

Today, after four months of being haircut-less, I decided to make an appointment at the teaching salon. I don't know if that makes me weak or brave.

I also set up appointments for Pippi to go to the dog boarding place down the street. I'm not going to lie, my decided factors for choosing this place were the prices and...the dancing cat on the website.

This is the first time I'm not leaving Pippi with a friend or relative and I'm nervous about it. See?



  1. Why not just add blankets under the comforter so you don't have to buy a whole new duvet? That one from Target is cute!

    I'd be nervous leaving Bungee at a boarding place, too. Luckily, my parents and Mike's parents are in town. Plus every single one of our friends has offered to watch/steal Bungee if the need arises.

  2. I like the comforter too! I already have the heat on and use like 20 blankets. I feel no shame, my workplace is always either boiling or freezing so I demand comfort at home.

  3. 63 degrees?! That's freezing. I would be wearing my North Face parka in my house if it was that cold:) Our heat has been on for a couple weeks now:0 Love fluffy comforters! I haven't put on my mattress warmer though:) Soon;)

  4. Try overstock.com and think about a quilt/down comforter combo. Works like a charm :)

  5. Uh, why don't you just wear warmer pajamas? I see so many solutions to this that don't involve having to wait until pay day to buy a duvet cover. I've somehow made it as an adult thus far without a comforter or duvet cover. I think we have such a thing shoved in a closet (wedding present?), but I don't know because I'm a badass who only sleeps with a sheet.

  6. That slut Rufus always steals my comforter. The fluffier one is his favorite. The fluffy one has a duvet cover that is missing a button or two from Rufus getting his head stuck in the opening. That dog is a menace to blankets.

    I want to watch Despicable Me now. I blame this on you.

  7. Fluffy comforters are the bomb. I agree duvet covers are impossible. That's what hired help is for. I need some.

  8. We've cut the heat on this week too. Once the temps in the nighttime hit the 30's I have got to have heat!
