This last two days I've been on a go. My first road trip was to a small town Rogers in North-West Arkansas. The road took me through the breathtaking view of the Boston Mountains. Day was calm and sunny, but land was ready to burst in a full bloom.
Stirring the wheel, I remembered driving visitors around Seattle area and listening to their admiration and comments about Lake Washington and the gorgeous view of Olympic mountains ahead and Mt. Rainier on the left. I realized that when we lived there, we took surroundings for a granted: view was everywhere you look.

As much as I try to find positive and beautiful things here in Arkansas, I have to admit, I miss Seattle to the ache in my chest. I would kiss every single drop of the rain when I go back (in 16 months, after my husband is done with his residency program. Actually, it's 493 days).
And even though Rogers is following Bellevue on the list of 100 best places to live in the US, I would still choose the rainiest part on the world.
Well, enough of nostalgia. And back on the road.
The reason of my trip to Rogers was to visit Williams Sonoma store.
I needed a shopping therapy...
|Best store ever, I love just to go there!|
I've collected a few gift cards to Williams Sonoma store through the year, and I decided to turn it into another Le Creuset pot.
WS and Sur La Table often have an exclusive offer on Le Creuset at a very reasonable price. I've been on a watch for the special deal for one of my favorite pots for a few years, and my patience was paid off: I got 4.1l (a little over 4 qt) pot for $150 (in my gift cards), almost $100 in savings!
I had some cards left so I treated myself with some other kitchen gadgets to help me with my nostalgia.
I have to admit, I am really addicted to the iron, not only at the gym, but in the kitchen too. Who is the cast iron addict? I am! I could never have enough cast iron pots, skillets, dutch ovens, etc. Especially as cute as the Le Creuset!
Do you have any kitchen addiction?
Do you believe in shopping therapy?
Until next time,
