My Favorite Things Monday ~ TempurPedic

Good morning and happy Monday, all! Hope everybody had a fabulous weekend! We enjoyed what will most likely be our last motorcycle trip of 2008 on Saturday. We drove around the countryside with our gang, the Wild Frogs! (lol, even saying that just makes me giggle :) ) We enjoyed lunch on the river, and the beautiful fall scenery. For 11 hours. No, that's not a typo. We literally rode the bikes for. eleven. hours. Which would have been fine, except we had forgotten to switch from our stock seat to our cushy after-market seat, so needless to say, our tushes hurt something awful by the end of the day. Not to sound like a complainer, but my joints were pretty sore, too, I understood the hips and knees and ankles, but elbows? I don't know . . .

All of this rambling does have a point. I promise. :) It brings me to a fun new meme I'm participating in:


When we got home from our gruelling ride, we got to go to bed. Which leads me to this week's "favorite thing>"

One of my new favorite things, our uber-fabulous, brand-new TempurPedic Deluxe Bed:

(We got just the matress and pillows, not the bed itself,
although I think the bed is beautiful,
they don't actually sell the headboards & footboards.)

We've had our new matress for a week, and it is phenomenal! They are everything the commercials say they are, which is very rare these days.

Both Austin and I have suffered from back pain, and on our old matress we would both have to shift positions frequently, and had quite a bit of trouble sleeping. The first night, Austin didn't sleep very well becuase we hadn't really broken it in, but every night since then, we've both slept better than we have in a long, long time! I never realized how much the quality of your sleep affects the quality of your days, but it is amazing. This new bed has been such a wonderful blessing!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Katy,

    I read you blog a lot. I was wondering if you could help me How do you get a cool new layout besides what blogger offers?? I am totally in the dark on this stuff...Thank you! Hope you had a great first Anniversary!!!!


  2. Sounds like a great weekend! 11 hours? Oh my goodness! lol Your new Tempurpedic sounds wonderful! Here's to a good nights sleep!

  3. Your new bed sounds amazing! Do you find it retains heat? I'm a hot sleeper in the summer, but it seems like it would be nice when I'm a frozen popsicle in the winter *L*

  4. Wild Frog's Bike Gang??? lol! So cute! Its amazing what 'parts' you use riding around-huh? A yummy set of mattress's is on our 'gonna get sumday' list! Enjoy!

  5. I am a tad jealous. We need a bed like this so bad. I miss REALLY good sleep.

  6. Luckyyyy! I've wanted a Tempur-Pedic for a looong time! When my parents got their T-P a few years ago they gave us their Select Comfort bed; I think they call them "Sleep Number" beds now. Anyway, I HATED it. My Husband was okay with it but I HATED it. Can I say again...I HATED IT. After sleeping on it for just a week, I wanted my 12-year-old mattress back! We now have a much nicer bed that someone graciously gave's SOOOOO much more comfortable than our old bed.

    Boy, I didn't know I had that much to say about beds! : )

  7. Wild Frogs is hilarious! I love the name! Thanks for sharing.....there's just something about a nice, soft bed after a hard days work!!!

  8. After my busy weekend this bed looks
    good to me for a nap! Hope you stop by and visit my favorite thing! :)

  9. I am so jealous of that bed! I've been begging for one for a couple of months because my back has been killing me! Hopefully the hubby will cave soon!

  10. I have a bed similiar to that one. Mine is a memory foam 3" topper on my bed, ( for $129.00+2.00 shipping). I absolutely love mine. I love my bed. And recently a dear friend of mine gave me down comforter and duvet that I put on my bed. And now I am totally in heaven in my bed. It's great, but makes me not want to get out in the morning. And it has lavender, sea foam green and white on it, makes me feel like I have a little girly in my room, and house of boys. :)
