2,000 Hits and Going!!!

Here it is, the long awaited and much anticipated Blog Candy! I hope you all like, it's mix of lots of fun things I've picked up here and there!
House Mouse Stickers, House Mouse Stamp, Clear Stamps and Block, 3 Rolls of Ribbon, a fun Card Kit, Jeweled Brads, Date Stamp, Some Yummy Altoids to enjoy then make a cute Tin with, some embossed CS and a Magnetic Storage Tin.

So as I lay here in bed, (yes, I'm in bed blogging lol! ) I was thinking what makes us choose the side of the bed we sleep on. At home I sleep on the side closest to the door, which is the right side if you are facing the bed. Tonight here in our hotel, I'm sleeping on the opposite side. I'm just not sure why, I'm trying to figure it out.. *hmmm* It just made me think! So leave me a comment and tell me what side of the bed you sleep on and why. Of course this is optional but I think it will be fun to see why people choose what side and if it's a conscious choice or not..

*Check out my girl Tara's new Blog- Stampalicious*

Good Luck, and lots of Stampin' Love!

Whoo Hoo the mystery candy is here. Wow what sweet and yummy candy it is. My mind is going a hundred miles a minute thinking of all the fun stuff I can do with this lot. I prefer the side my the door. I think it's cuz I get up the the kids and don't have to go around the bed. Can't wait to see who the lucky stamper is for all this fun stuff. Thanks for a chance.

Yummy stuff!!! I sleep on the right side which is not close to the door. I prefer to be away from the door and a straight path to the bathroom. Congrats on 2,000!!! Thanks for all the inspiration.

I have always slept on the right. Not sure why. When my fiance and I got together that is just how it was. lol. I've never really thought about it. I think one night he said "Get over" and I did and that became my side of the bed.. hehe..
I also have Blog Candy up for grabs on my Blog until June 15th :)

I sleep on the right side, which happens to be the straight shot down the hall to the kids. And the other direction is my bath room. I use to sleep on the other side but waking up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom or check on the kids, I would always bump my thigh on the foot board and I would get the biggest bruises and it would hurt. Not fun in the middle of the night.
But when we are at a hotel I usually let my husband pick and he usually wants to be on which ever side is colder.

I always sleep on the side closest to the door, whether we're at home or not. I think that's so that I'm the one that has to get up if the kids need anything...or because I always have to get up to "go" in the middle of the night anyway and I don't have to crawl over DH.

Tara said...

I sleep on the right side....because it's next to the nightstand with all my stuff on it!! Gotta have a place for my water, remotes, magazines and "stuff"! The 'candy' looks so fun!!

Interesting question Tiffany! I used to sleep on the left side closest to the door. There is limited space on the right side due to the dresser. My fiance was hit by a car and his left pelvis was shattered. So, since he needs the extra space to manuever getting out of bed, I am now on the right side.

What great candy! Thanks for a chance to win!!

I always sleep on the side closest to the bathroom :)

Definitely a conscious decision...when you gotta go, you gotta go! Don't want any interference :)

Melanie aka Batgirl said...

wow its been great comming back and the candy is worth it! (and your blog too lol) I sleep on the right closest to the door so I can get the kids. but we started this when we got married I wanted my DH away from the door so when he leaves his clothes, papers, books ect. Laying around no one will see it!

Debra E said...

Gotta love blog candy! :)

I used to sleep in the middle of the bed because I've been solo for awhile. But then my baby (dog) came along. I sleep on the left side now and Rosie sleeps in the middle. Spoiled pooch! LOL!!!

Heather said...

Wow -- what great candy! I sleep on the left side (that is when you are looking at the bed from the foot --- the side on the left.) We choose up based on the fact that that is where the nightstand is and I like to read at night and need the light / table / etc.

Hello! I always sleep on the side of the bed that is closest to the bathroom. I have to go to the bathroom all the time, so it just makes the trip that much faster I guess! Thanks!

Hey Tif! I love your site, great ideas! I make my husband sleep on the side of the bed that the door is on, which means it has changed several times over the years, even when we are on vacation:) Right now I sleep on the left.

Angela H. said...

Left side for me. I guess it is the closest to the door when I had 3 kids at home. Now we are empty nesters but old habits die hard!

Pattyjo said...

I sleep on the side away from the door or open space in room. That way if someone breaks in the house they will get my DH first! LOL

Sheri said...

That's too funny; that last comment was going to be mine! I also sleep on the side away from the door... just "in case"! I also think it "might" help get my dh out of bed once in awhile when our child wakes up in the middle of the night! ;)

Amie said...

Fun question! I do sleep on the right and closest to the door because I am more likely to go check on kids, however now that I think about it, I always sleep curled on my right side and I don't like exposing my back to the wide open room/hallway, it creeps me out. So the only way to sleep curled up on my right side and not get taken by the boogie man is the right side closest to the door. =)

scfranson said...

Wonderful blog! I sleep on the right side of the bed, always have and I guess it's just habit now cause I can't sleep right on the other side.

I also sleep on the right hand side of the bed facing the bed. I cannot sleep on the left now since I have slept on this side for 21 years. I am not sure why I picked this side. We just started out that way and now it is too late to change.

Andrea Hays said...

I sleep on the right side of the bed if you are facing it. I like to sleep on my left side and my husband on his right. He is deaf in his left ear, so he likes to sleep on the right to eliminate noises. And he likes to sleep near the end of the bed when he does that. And me, being that I can sleep on just about anything, concrete floor included, I was fine to sleep on the other side. :) It's been that way for years and I don't think we could get a good nights' sleep any other way!

JoAnn said...

I sleep on the right side since that's where the nightstand is, and I keep my glasses there. (I'm blind as a bat without them!)

Way to go for hitting 2000!

Heather said...

There is a scientific theory to the sides thing. Men normally pick the right side (as you are laying on the bed looking at the ceiling) if they are right handed because it is easier for them to have their good arm accessible. My DH sleep in that traditional pattern ;) Congrats on 2K I just hit mine last week!

Tanis said...

Funny! I don't remember how we slept before kids, but I know that after kids, I always slept closest to the door, so I could get up and out quicker when i was nursing.
That was in our first house, now in our second, I am on the wrong side! I am farthest away from the door. What, by 3 feet or so! lol
Thanks for the giveaway!

LettyLian said...

I love your question! I've always wondered why I have to switch sides so often! hahaha. I sleep mostly on the side by the door because the street light comes in & shines on the other side. Being such a light sleeper, I change like the wind... my poor hubby gets whatever side I'm not in the mood for : ) lol. Letty

SusanH said...

Cool question. But, I'm single so I sleep alone and basically I sleep from corner to corner, or diagonally across the bed cuz I can just spread out everywhere!!

Nancy Grant said...

I sleep on the left side because my husband claimed the right side first. I don't really have a preference. When he's gone I sleep right in the middle. :-)

Kirsi said...

Sweet candy! I sleep on the right side of the bed. Don't know why, but that's just the way it has always been.

Shelley said...

You are my CRAZY BEST FRIEND!!!! Didn't you sleep on the other side of the bed when you were in the other house ya know the side by the windows? I sleep on the left side of the bed, this is the only side I can sleep on because I have to sleep on my right side with my foot hanging off the bed to goto sleep!! HEHEHE I love you and miss you so much and I can't wait until next month when we will live in the same state and will be so close to each other again. You are so talented and you inspire me in so may ways. I love you!!!!

Jan Scholl said...

I sleep on the left side of the bed on my right side holding on for dear life as the eveneing goes on. By sunrise I have 3 cats anda dog crowding me off and they all have their own beds! I usually give up and take the lazy boy.

foodpartyfun said...

Interesting question...I sleep on the left side of the bed. No specific reason. Always have and probably always will be a left-side bed sleeper. Thanks for sharing!

I love love love House of Mouse!! I always sleep on the side closest to the door. It started afer we had kids so I could hear them better. Now it's also so they can find me easier in the dark if I don't hear them!

carrie said...

I sleep on the left, closest to the door. I think it is a mom thing, it is closest to get to the kids.

Thanks for the candy chance!

Elaine said...

I'm on the right side most of the time....funny, but I think I am a bed hogger and since I go to bed first, I get to choose which side...I like both!

Great blog candy...let's see I sleep on the side closest to the door or the left side if you are facing the bed. Not sure why, it just worked out that way.

Linda SS said...

I prefer the side that is the farthest from the bathroom. (I apparently have a "thing" about bathrooms) I won't sit close to the restroom in a restaurant either. CONGRATS on all the hits!

Lilian said...

i sleep on the left side of the bed... my husband sleeps on the right side, closer to the door, because he gets up to go to work earlier than i do.

thanks for the blog candy!! :)

Wife2TJ said...

Great blog candy!!!

I sleep on the left side of the bed (if you are facing towards the bed) no matter how many times we've moved or different places in the room the bed has been I have to sleep on the left side and dh knows it. I just can't sleep on the other side for some reason, not sure why. lol!

Thanks for giving us all a chance to win some great blog candy!

Heather Leech said...

Hi Tiffany,
What a great question! I sleep on the right side of the bed, and have for the entire 13 years we've lived in our house. I have absolutely no clue how that worked out! I just know that when we've stayed at hotels or on our cruises I still stay on the right if I have a choice, and I always lay on my right side so I'm facing the wall (otherwise I feel claustrophic).
What a fabulous prize!! Thanks for sharing!!

janet allen said...

I like the right side & prefer facing left. That's just the way it always was & I have no idea why. In fact I've never given it a thought until now...see what you started:) Thanks for offering blog candy.

Angel said...

I sleep on the right side which is closest to the door. This is because I can't lay on my right side without my shoulder hurting and I want to lay facing my hubby. :-)

Tara said...

Ok...are you too sweet or what?! I love the plug for my blog...your awesome!! I am so glad we are doing this blog thing to keep us in touch with each other and our stamping!...luv ya 2 much!

Isa said...

Hi! yumyum blog candy!! I sleep on the farthest from the door on my bed. And even though I'm not at home, that's where I sleep. The reason? I guess cuz when people enter the room, they won't see me at once.

Melissa R. said...

Our bed recently broke & we are now sleeping on a sofa bed. I switched to the left now. Haven't a clue as to why we changed. But I do know that I want a new bed!

Jenny in Maine said...

Hah FUnny! I've never stopped to think about this, but I am on the right side facing the bedroom door, and when we go away I always end up on the right side of the bed..hmmm...

GREAT Goodies!! Thank you for the inspiration!!

Hugs,
