life is brighter with you (and a good mattress) in it

Hi everyone! I can't believe that we are only seven days into the new year. It has been the busiest 7 days of all time. Wow. So, I thought I would post a super simple card, because I need some simple in my life!Since this card is so simple, I decided to round all corners but one for some extra interest. It feels kind of retro to me. Super fun! :)

Today, Mike and I went mattress shopping. Talk about eye opening! We went to Sit 'n Sleep and they had this analyzer that measures the pressure you put on the bed depending on how you sleep. I have been sleeping on the wrong kind of mattress for years! I have always used a firm mattress because I have a bad back. Well, I guess that is a fallacy. Firm mattresses don't actually help. It just depends what is best for your sleeping style (on your back, your side, etc.). We found a bed that has almost no pressure on my joints. For someone with joint problems, this is amazing! Anyways, I swear I don't work for these people or anything, I was just really amazed! It will be delivered in 2 weeks. I hope it lives up to its in-store awesomeness! And if it does, I would like my couch and office chair to be made out of the same material. haha! :) Let's hope 2010 is a less back pain year! Wooo! Now, I am off to sleep on my old junky mattress. Ha!

  1. Love your sweet CAS card, Kelly! Glad to hear you found the perfect mattress, too. :D

  2. Kelley,
    Love the simple look! Fantastic! Great idea using the button as a sun as well!

  3. So cute! I love the simple design! We had a terrible mattress too, but we bought a 4 inch memory foam to go on top of it,(from none other than Sam's)! :) WOW, we don't wake up with stiff backs anymore, it really is amazing and wayyyy cheaper! :)

  4. I love your simple card!

    I am glad that you found a good mattress! I wish you a year full of no back pain as well!! :)

  5. This is darling Kelly! I love the sweet button sun!

    And a good mattress is a must...I bet you can't wait for it to get delivered! We just bought a new set for our guest bedroom...and we tried out some of the top of the line mattresses just for fun. One day, when we have an extra $3000 lying around.....tee hee! Have a great day!
