So one of the things I made my husband promise to purchase after we sold our house in Yakima, was a new bed. After all, I think that sleeping on the same bed for 10+ years it is time to make a change. Getting that man to go out and go shopping for a bed was so difficult!
When I asked was asked what I wanted to do a few weeks back I told him we needed to go shopping for our bed. It wasn't like I was going to be able to go and pick one out by myself. He was going to have to come along because I was not going to be held responsible for picking out something he couldn't sleep on. He sighed, said okay I guess we will go get a bed.
He didn't want to drive around to compare so we ended up going into the mall straight to Macy's, they were having a great sale. It took us two hours to finally figure out what we wanted, thankfully the kids were willing to go mall walking and stop at some of their favorite stores.
When they delivered the bed last Friday I knew I was going to have to go shopping or I would not be able to sleep in my new bed. The mattress is like 15" deep and when I sit on it, my toes can almost not touch the floor. My fabulous find was this whole set up at Target with exception to the large green pillow, which was found at TJ Max. I bought everything here plus 3 sets of sheets for under $200, yep all the bedding minus the pillows were on clearance! I have always wanted one of those Extreme Home makeover beds, with lots of pillows. I can't tell you how happy this makes me!
It is the most we have ever spent on a bed. There was some compromising that had to be agreed on......firm(for him) and pillow top(for me).........he would have liked the extra firm but it felt to much like I was sleeping on a board even with the pillow top. After months of not being able to sleep very well and waking up sore every morning, I'm starting to sleep. It is so wonderful to actually wake up happy. Now, if I can only get him to stop hogging the bed, leaving me with 8" to sleep on and don't even get me started on the snoring!
