Since you guys can't see me, I thought I would give you an image of what I look like today. I don't know what it is about this week, it can't go by fast enough, and most importantly I can't seem to get enough sleep. Now, in all fairness, I'm a HUGE fan of sleep on a normal basis. I get very cranky if I don't get my full 8 1/2 hours. Every once and while I go through phases where I just can't get up, coffee doesn't work, and 10 more minutes turns into 20-30 more minutes. This week seems to be one of those phases... Saturday morning/afternoon cannot come fast enough!
Let me just express how much I love my bed. It's just makes me smile because I've had so many good times there. Get your mind out of the gutter; I'm talking about nights of 9+ hours of sleep. I read an article once talking about how the average person needs 7 1/2 to 8 hours of sleep every night. They recommended that you find out how long you need to sleep. To do this, you are supposed to go to bed at a normal hour, and simply wake up naturally, and see how many hours you slept. I did this twice just to make sure I got an accurate read. Turns out, I need between 9 and 9 hours and 15 minutes of sleep. Sounds kind of ridiculous, but I did a true test and those were the results. What can I say?!
Favorite part of my bed is my pillow. C got me this for my birthday last year and it's the best thing ever. It's a memory foam pillow, one side is flat and the other is kind of rippled, and it forms to your head/neck. I've gotten very spoiled because now it's difficult for me to get a good night's sleep without my magical pillow. They aren't cheap. If I had never slept on one, there would be no way I would walk into a store and lay down that kind of money, but now that I have my very own, it is SO worth it.
Also wanted to give a shout out to my fuzzy, soft blanket. I found this at Restoration Hardware, and it seriously is the softest blanket ever. Luckily, for me (since I bought a white one) they get softer as you wash them. I bought one for C and he's enjoying his as well. I wish I could carry it around with me, it's so comfortable!
Even though I won't be going to bed after I post this, don't I wish, I bid you sweet dreams until tomorrow!
