So I finally put on my big girl pants & got a big girl bed. No more queen sized bed...with my body imprinted on it. Truth be told, my husband had been after me for a bit to get a new mattress. I was on board, but once we got a new mattress I knew it was going to spiral to a new bed, sheets, bedding...you know how it goes. While I love making those kinds of decisions for other people, I'm not the best at making them for myself. So I put it off.
Then my lack of sleep caught up with me & I realized my mattress was probably half my problem. It took coming to that moment for me to stop what I was doing long enough to figure out a new bed, along with bedding...Brooklyn Bedding to the rescue!
Brooklyn Bedding is a local mattress company that I've used for years. My kids all have their mattresses on their beds & I've been really pleased. So now, it was finally my turn. Since I had bought from them, they started offering pillows & sheets as well. #bestdayever, one stop & all three of those things figured out. Then I waited & waited for that big box to show up on my doorstep.
Then it was onto figuring out the bed portion. I searched online. I ran all over town and came up with nothing. On a whim one afternoon I decided to head to the Frontgate Outlet in Scottsdale. The only other time I had bought something from there was our outdoor chairs, which I loved, but I couldn't remember if they had anything remotely close to what I was looking for. To be honest, I wasn't totally sure what I was looking for. I've come to realize I usually don't know exactly what I'm looking for, but when I see it, I know. This bed was no different. I found it within 5 minutes of walking in the store & decided to buy it within another 5 minutes of that.
Its a little different from what I normally would buy, but that added to its luster. I'm always willing to do something a little funky or different in bedrooms. They are the rooms that you don't live in all day, so you tend not to get tired of their quirks, like you might in a kitchen or family room.
We got the king size mattress in a medium firmness & it's plenty firm but not too firm. The Goldilocks of mattresses. And while I am over the moon about the mattress, I seriously cannot stop talking about the sheets. My husband is tired of hearing me ask, 'No really, these are like the best sheets ever, right?' I haven't ever paid that much attention to sheets, and I obviously should have been. These are super super soft & the best part is that they sleep cool -- I'm not sure how it works, but it does & it's heavenly.
My only problem now is getting my kids out & off my bed...
Hi, I'm Amy. When I'm not scouring the valley for the perfect new house, you can usually find me in the kitchen with a gaggle of kids. Chips, salsa and a Diet Coke are usually in hand.
