You know you have reached full blown adulthood when you get excited over house hold items, more specifically sheets!! I have been wanting white sheets for our master bedroom for what feels like forever. When we first bought our bed and bedding, we went with a grey theme because I was pregnant and we thought a darker neutral tone would be better with kids in the bed. I never really liked it. I love the look of crisp white sheets, who doesn't? It reminds me of those first moments when you walk into a hotel room and the bed sheets are pulled tight as to not show one wrinkle. The white is so white, and you just can't help but jump right in.
That is exactly the goal I was trying to achieve with my very own white sheet set. (If you think I get overly excited about sheets, you should have seen when we bought a new vacuum, I need to get out more). I have been mentioning to Chris for so long that white sheets is what we need, and should be our next household purchase. He always said, "why? they will just get dirty with the kids". It very well may be true, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity when it presented itself. Insert Cariloha. Everything on their site is made from bamboo, and proves to be the softest thing I have ever put near my body! I will admit I was not very knowledgeable about things manufactured from bamboo, but after laying on these sheets I now want to replace every towel, blanket, and sheet set in my house.
Being the sneaky wife I am, I decided not to tell Chris about the sheets. I waited until he was working a really late night to pull the old switch-a-roo. Knowing that he would be so tired when he got home and literally just fall into bed, I changed the sheets right before I climbed in bed. Hours later Chris got home, made a tornado of a mess in the kitchen before making his way up to bed. I was then awoken to the sounds of "oh my!!!! what is this? (rolling around) this is amazing!! did you buy new sheets?"
I couldn't help but laugh because he was so excited about these sheets. And it is totally true. Before this we had a pretty decently high threat count egyptian cotton sheets. But these are on another level. I formally invite any and all of you to come lay in my bed. You of course have to fly yourself to Alaska, and possibly rent a car to my house because we are at car seat capacity in the minivan. So in that case it might be cheaper to just go buy yourself a set.!
The kids are more than happy to offer to take a nap in moms bed because it looks so nice and clean! I can't blame them, so we pile in and everyone just pets the top of the sheets. I am in love, and I feel kind of bad that my kids are not getting this kind of luxurious bedtime slumber. But, toddlers and accidents don't bode well for buttery soft sheets.
You my friends can get your hands on some though, which I highly recommend. You can thank me later! From now until the 25th, Pardon My French readers will get 20% off their purchase from Cariloha's entire online store. Just use code FRENCH20 at checkout.
Now if you will excuse me.....my bed is calling me, and it won't take no for an answer!
