So you know how Karen (my MIL) folds her comforter at the bottom of her bed?
Here’s my attempt to recreate the same coziness. Although something tells me I need more fluff!
I just swapped on our wintertime Pottery Barn bedding. All wedding gifts that I LOVE! Our bedroom set is actually NOT the Pottery Barn Farmhouse collection, although it looks very similar. It came from World Market and we got the whole thing 40% off! So all four pieces were probably about 15% of the price that Pottery Barn’s are.
Just before lunch I got a burst of energy to go to the gym! Really I think all the bedding shuffle had me itching to read Better Homes & Gardens and there’s no better place to do that than the gym! (For some reason I cannot just sit on the couch and read a magazine. I have to be moving. I must have inherited this strange behavior from my dad, who reads + walks 6 miles a day!)
I biked to the gym and spent a leisurely 30 minutes on the elliptical, did some foaming and then headed home. Pretty low-key and just what I was in the mood for.
What leftovers do you still have!? A huge bonus to being hostess: hostess with the mostess leftovers!!
Stuffing Salad is a favorite of mine.
- A bed of lettuce + spinach
- A carrot
- ~1 cup of heated stuffing
- 1 extra fig because I love figs and would put MORE in the stuffing if Matt would let me
- 2 small plums
- ~3 tbsp wheatberries
- ~10 cinnamon almonds
- No dressing because I wanted the flavors to pop
Consumed in the warmth of the living room!
Showertime, the hopefully, tree time!
