I really love Amazon.
We have had a Prime account for several years and use it for everything from coffee to toilet paper, books to home decor, music to movies.
Some day, I will talk to you about the joys of Amazon's "Subscribe & Save" program and my new-found love for Audible.
Some day, I will talk to you about how amazing the Amazon app is and the fact that I have a dream to sell a children's book I wrote on Amazon someday.
Amazon has a host of items that fit my taste...and my budget.
As you've probably seen in some of my other posts, I love signs and wall-hangings to fill the walls of the farmhouse.
Amazon has a nice selection of high-quality signs.
I have tried to be very intentional with the items I bring into the farmhouse, since we moved in last July.
One of the things I try to think about when I purchase items is the functional purpose that they could serve in our home.
These containers are perfect for organizing AND looking adorable.
A nice warm throw is always a good item to have lying over a chair, reading available for snuggling up with a good book. I also love the natural pop of color that this wreath brings.
Seek out items that bring joy to your heart and make your home feel peace and calming to you.
Be responsible in your spending and intentional in what you allow into your home.
And enjoy the process!
Happy Friday from the Farmhouse, friends!
You might remember the first night we slept in the farmhouse, we unrolled and unveiled our mattress-in-a-box that we purchased on Amazon.
We also purchased a foundation on Amazon...spending just $417 total for the whole set.
As of last night, we have slept on the bed for a full two weeks, not counting the nights we spent at the lake.
I think we have had it long enough to say with confidence that we could not be more happy.
On our old mattress (that was 34 years old, mind you), we both had back problems. We hurt often and didn't always wake up feeling refreshed.
The first few nights of sleeping on a 12-inch memory foam mattress, I wasn't too sure.
It was quite a bit firmer than I expected and I woke up feeling a little sore on the first two mornings.
However, I also slept all night on both of those nights.
That hardly ever happened with our old mattress.
This week at the lake, I was up every single night for hours...tossing and turning, trying to find a comfortable position in which to sleep.
We came home last night and Ilanded in bed not feeling well fairly early.
I have to tell you...I slept all night (minus the 10 minutes at 3:30 a.m. that Mattie woke up and needed me to help her find her blankie).
I still don't feel great this morning, but this mattress provided the restful night I needed.
So as an update to the mattress-in-a-box post a few weeks ago.
We highly recommend it. ❤️?❤️
Sometimes you can't go back to sleep after tucking the three-year-old back into bed at 4:45 a.m.
So you decide to do some online window shopping on Hobby Lobby's website.
Sometimes you accidentally put some items in your cart.
And enter your shipping information.
And your payment information.
Sometimes your online window shopping turns into actual online shopping.
