this, ladies and gentle-readers, is what i bought myself last night. yes, a 700 fill power down pillow. i had to, you see. and here's why:
what's so wrong with wanting to get a good night's rest? i mean, really? i buy these $10 pillows from target or walmart (or wherever!) and less than a few months later, i find myself in the same predicament- uncomfortable. it's a constant battle. i decided that it must be the price that i'm paying for. after an extremely dreamy stay at the hampton inn in las vegas a few weeks back, i was completely convinced that i needed the pillow that caressed my sleepy head to sleep that night. there was nothing. else. to it! i slept so wonderfully that night. yes, maybe a small portion may be attributed to the fact that i had no kids coughing in the backround, no person i had to share a bed with (i still love him, yes....but sometimes i want my own bed!) or the fact that i was dead tired. perhaps! but, i will say, that i found myself repeating over the following weeks, "i wish i had taken that pillow home with me!"
so as i'm putting clean sheets on our bed and pillows tonight, i'm staring at these sorry-looking, flat-ish and starting-to-yellow, pillows. ick....i know. stephen and i are wondering what happened to our pillows. didn't we just buy them a few months ago? sure felt like it! so i'm reminiscing to him about my amazing pillow experience in vegas....again. he's already heard it a few, and he was already zoning out while i droned on. when suddenly!!! POOF! so off i ran to the computer. tried to find out exactly what kind of pillows the hampton inn uses. i found it. i drooled. i begged. i bought.
end of story. happy me. shipping this week!
