So, the biggest change since my recent move to the "Big City" is I pass a coffee shop every morning!! Oh, the smells coming from that place hit me as soon as I walk out of the building. I have never really been a coffee person, but this little bistro on the corner has made a coffee lover of me. But I turned to CuppaBean when I needed to find an affordable means to my coffee fix.
This country girl grew up to the smell of strong Folgers coffee every morning. Maybe that's what turned me off coffee intially.
But now that I have found a passion for all things coffee, I'm afraid I am broke! My weekly paycheck isn't cutting it for daily coffees at the bistro, if you know what I mean!
So, I decided I should just buy a coffee maker and save some money. " How hard can it be, right???" OMG!
So, first, the local department store had so many different types of coffee makers. (more…)
My wife and I looked at the Sleep Matters site before deciding what our next bed would be. The first bed we got together was one of those beds that can raise up and down. We saw it on a commercial many years ago, and while there are some times when being able to raise or lower a bed can be convenient, the bed itself was just alright. We wanted something a little softer and didn't mind if it didn't have motors to control it. After some thinking, the bed we decided on was a memory foam bed. We liked the idea of having the bed form around the shape of our bodies.
The bed we chose also has a cooling feature due to gel inside of it. We generally sleep with the room in a cool temperature because we feel that it sometimes gets a little too hot while we're sleeping, especially in the summer months when the humidity is high. Sometimes I wish we lived in an area where it was cool most of the year. (more…)
