My boyfriend and I have been living together for almost two years (that sounds insanely long when I type it out) and we make good roommates. I’m pretty neat and clean and he is too, so for the most part it was an easy transition. But there is one little thing that was a bit of an issue at first.
I’m a covers stealer.
I lived in a studio in the pre-Tim era of Anita and I guess I just got used to grabbing every inch of my fluffy duvet and wrapping myself in it, burrito style. It’s so comfortable! Gah. Writing about it is making me want to crawl under the covers right this moment.
But, for obvious reasons, Tim wasn’t super into this. So he made a wise investment a few months after I moved in… a king duvet for our queen bed.
It’s a GAME CHANGER. I’m not even kidding. Sometimes I still go a bit overboard in burrito-ing myself, but overall, it’s pretty much genius. And I actually love the way it looks! The extra comforter drapes over the sides of our bed, but doesn’t touch the floor. It actually looks more like what I would prefer stylistically, given all of my HGTV education. ;)
Just thought I’d share, for all of you fellow covers-stealers out there.
Hope you guys have a good weekend! My family is in town, so we’re heading to Disneyland for one last go-around before we move.
