On My Mind

For some reason this week was just unending to me. Partly because I’ve been having some back pain that has made it hard for me to sleep. I’m already a light sleeper but this has been enough to just make me get up so there’s been a few morning when my day has started around 2 a.m. So much for sleeping while I can.


I read this story this past weekend and got pretty teary-eyed at how sweet and amazing what a love story it is.


Although I’m having trouble sleeping, I also bought a memory foam mattress topper recently and I don’t know how I ever lived without it. I had one while I was in Afghanistan and loved it so when my bed started feeling less comfortable I was pretty sure a mattress topper would help (and it does, I just can’t seem to stay asleep). Even P likes it and he usually likes firmer mattresses. It’s amazing and at only $70 I wish I had done this sooner.

Williams Sonoma Gift Guide.

Okay, so I love Williams Sonoma. I love their store, I love how it smells, how it sells devices that are good at doing only one thing and all their expensive things, but also I love what good quality everything is. I splurged on a really nice Le Creuset deep saucepan when I moved back here because I knew I’d be without my kitchen tools and wanted to buy something I could still use. I got it on clearance and we use it all the time.

Anyway, this guy writes a hater’s guide to their catalog every year. The 2017 one isn’t out yet but his from 2016 is still hilarious.
