Advent Calendar DIY

This year I decided to do something a little different with my gang.  This year we’re doing an Advent Calendar.  I think it will help us focus more on the true meaning of Christmas and the holiday season.  This year we’ll read more stories, make smores by the fireplace, have hot cocoa almost every night and just enjoy the simple things.  

To start I found this cute printable advent calendar for them.  I’ve included little treats, bible sayings, words of encouragement, and other little treats.  I printed the advent calendar from Yellowblissroad.


Happy Thanksgiving!

From my family to yours I wish you a very

Blessed Thanksgiving!

Sleep Number Dual Temp Layer

It’s been a long week at work and my body has been aching. The weather has also cooled so I’ve been really cold. I stopped at the Sleep Number Perimeter location where Bonnie assisted me.

The DualTemp is a temperature balancing layer that you can add to any mattress. It actually allows you to select your ideal temperature with a touch of a button. Plus the temperature is evenly distributed from head to toe. For me that means I don’t have to ball up so my feet stay warm for up to 9 hours.

I actually wanted to stay on the bed a little longer- it was comfortable for my tired legs and back. I also found out that my sleep number is a 35.

For visiting the sleep number and reviewing the dual temp layer I will receive a sleep number coolfit foam contour pillow. This didn’t impact my opinion of the product.
