King Sized

The 3rd time I woke up Tuesday night between 9:30 and 11:45 I had had enough. At that moment I decided it was time to get a bigger bed. Apparently B finds it impossible to sleep on only half of the bed. And heaven forbid I wake him up because I have no room. My mission yesterday became getting the perfect bed.

During my lunch hour I stopped at Big Lots. They are currently having a sale on mattresses, but the largest size they had was Queen, and they really weren't anything special. I went back to work and searched the difference in size of a Full compared to a Queen - a whole 6 inches! Are you kidding me? I'm not spending $300 on 6 inches!!! So after work I went to Metro Mattress. There I laid on 3 beds and had my made up. The first one was amazing, but was something like $3,400. Couldn't go that high. But I did get a King with a memory foam pillow top, box spring, frame (simple metal, no headboard or anything), a mattress protector and delivery for $2,200. Still way more than what I wanted to spend, but will be worth it in the end. Oh and it has a 15 year warranty. I can't wait til it gets here in a week.

Last night I got maybe 4 hours of sleep and I'm feeling like crap today. I shouldn't even be at work I don't think. My eyes burn just from pure exhaustion. But I don't have much of a choice, there's so much going this week that I'm deeply involved in. I may go home in an hour and see if I can get some sleep for a bit though.


  1. Oh, that's awesome! Trust me, it's worth every penny. I think big mattresses save marriages...haha!

    By the way, I love the new picture at the top of the blog!

  2. Once you go KING you never go back!You will be SO happy!

  3. Yeah for a bigger mattress! I love my pillow top. I hope a good night sleep is right around the corner for you!

  4. Congrats on the new bed and the pregnancy!

  5. We have our dog who sleeps with us and I swear, even wiht a King mattress now, it still feels small cuz that little rascal just loves to stretch her legs sideways!!!

    Anyway, yay to a bigger bed for you guys!!!
