Friday Favorite: Sleeping on a Cloud

Happy New Year’s Eve! I hope you all have some great plans for tonight and that you are safe heading to or from them, don’t shoot guns off into the sky at midnight (yes, people do that, and yes, that bullet can still kill someone), and don’t drink and drive. Now that that’s said…

I would love to share some great cocktail to have as you celebrate New Year’s Eve tonight, or the best party game (personally, I love Apples to Apple and Taboo) to play as you wait on the ball/peach/whatever to drop. But I’ll be honest, I don’t have much to offer.

I tend to stick to bubbly drinks (champagne, sparkling wine, or sparkling grape juice) for New Year’s parties, and I don’t have a favorite. As for games, what to play (if anything) depends on who you have over and if it’s that casual of a party. (The best I can do is share some tips on making your party easier.)

So, instead, I’m going to offer you something for AFTER the party ends: The most comfortable sleep ever.

A few weeks ago, I was doing laundry. Not all that unusual because I do it every week. But this night, I had our sheets in the wash waiting on the dryer to become available as it was on it’s second turn trying to dry our coverlet (which I use instead of a comforter). It got to be about the time we try to go to bed, and there was no way any of that stuff would be dry in time.

I asked Tom to help me figure something out, so I grabbed some sheets and a couple comforters, and we headed into our room. The sheets weren’t the right size (I keep putting off buying extras because we want to get a king sized bed eventually), so that left us with comforters. We spread a cotton comforter over the egg crate on top of our mattress and then put a duvet stuffed with a feather comforter on top of it.


It was like sleeping on a cloud.


When we woke up the next morning, we both said we wanted to keep our bed how it was. And we have. It’s not very attractive to look at, but it’s SO soft and comfortable to sleep on. I don’t think it will be as ideal in the summer when it’s hot as Hades in Georgia, but for now it’s winter, and I’m telling you, you have to try it.

Go into the new year with some of the most cozy sleep you’ve ever had. Trust me.

  1. Apples to Apples and Taboo are two of my favorite games! Have you ever played Speed Scrabble?

    This is great post on so many levels. With the trazillion Resolutions being made this weekend, what better way to begin the New Year than with a good night’s sleep?

    I remember when staying up until midnight was a big deal. Sadly, these days, New Year’s Eve is one of the few nights a year I actually go to bed early. All the food and festivities are packed up by midnight, soooo….why stay up, right? Haha! 🙂

    Hope you guys have a fun evening celebrating!!

    1. Thanks! I’m glad you liked it! I know it’s kinda random, but then, what about my blog isn’t random? haha

      I have never played speed scrabble, but I LOVE scrabble (and most vocabulary related games) so I might have to check it out.

      I still try to stay up to see the new year come in, but I like going to bed not long after. I get so tired!! We’re staying low-key this year-just a movie with another couple that wanted to do something chill and then watching the ball or peach (for ATL) drop before bed. I like my low-key nights as much as a big party these days. 😉
