Princess and the Pea

Three months ago G and I went through a really involved process to buy a new bed at  The Brick.  We lay on every bed in the store and spent a lot of time choosing the one we felt was just right with us.  After 4+ years of sleeping on an Ikea mattress that was wreaking havoc on my joints I was more than excited with the promise of this new bed.  It arrived and felt pretty firm, more firm that we remembered from our on site trial.  However we thought maybe it just needed a chance to break in so we have slept on it for three months with minimal change.  Luckily the Brick allows a one time mattress swap out (woohoo) So last week we went back to The Brick and went shopping again.  I thought it would be a quick task, but I am notorious for underestimating how long something will take.  We lay on every mattress in the store and I couldn't decide.  Garret can sleep on a concrete slab without any complaint so he left it up to me.  It took about 45 minutes until I was sure but I am excited to report that next weekend our new mattress gets delivered.  (It's funny the things I get so super excited about now a days!)

Hope everyone has an awesome family day long weekend...anyone doing anything exciting?

Oh my goodness...I'm going through the same thing and I think our bed will go back as well. Mine is soft but under all the heavy body parts (back) it sinks down and my spine does not like that part being bent, but I need the bed to be soft too so it doesn't cut off circulation to shoulder and hip. All I want is a refreshing sleep! Is that to much too ask for?????
