Though now I just lie in bed paranoid that I'm going to drift off to sleep and the candles are going to explode and next thing I know there are three foot black flames licking up my wall.
I made these waffles for dinner tonight. Or I mixed them up and Daddy cooked them. Awesome waffle maker that man is. Daniel also finished baking our classic Christmas is coming Molasses Spiced Cookies. Starting to feel the holidays a bit.
I'm wearing a striped shirt today. Which makes me quite happy. I don't think I've owned a striped shirt for over 10 years. I think the last shirt I owned that was striped had a v-neck and I got sunburned in it at camp one year. I then had to wear it for the next three days as no other shirts had a matching neck line. Fond memories.

One of Jacob's main love languages is gifts. And if he is feeling concerned or loving toward you, he gives you a stuffed animal to sleep with. Last night, I got Mister Raccoon to watch over me. I tell you, I slept better for it.
Reading Scandinavian blogs and thinking about Scandinavian interior design has got me reevaluating what I like in design. And the only problem is that I can't figure out a name for what I like. Which isn't very helpful. I can think of decorating styles I'm not. And styles I admire. But I'm not sure what I like to live in. Eclectic might be the word. But it's not a very helpful or descriptive word. Expensive also works I guess.
Also, did you know that one of the reasons I got pulled out of public schools was... we studied Scandinavia in fourth grade and all we learned about were trolls and fairy tales. Helpful for when shows like Once Upon a Time and Grimm are all the rage, but not really helpful. At all.
