The Sleep Of Your Dreams // Part Two

A few months ago, I had posted this blog post where I confessed my love and a little bit of awe and wonder for our new it™ bed by Sleep Number. Now that we have actually slept on it for a long period of time [as of recent I have spent too much time on it] I thought I would report back on our thoughts. Well, the good news is our thoughts are as strong as they were several months ago and we are sleeping like the babes we've always wanted to sleep like. Babes is short for babies in case you are confused right now. We realize we aren't babes. Or babies. But we can dream...

It's amazing what a good night of rest can actually do for you and how you don't realize you weren't receiving good sleep until you actually do. Do you know how wonderful it is to NOT wake up with a sore back every morning these days? With the it™ bed by Sleep Number we are able to adjust our own sides of the bed to the comfort level of our choice. Shawn likes a little less firm mattress [his Sleep Number® setting is 50] while I like it a little more on the firm side [mine is 65]. If I'm ever feeling like I need some more support [I always feel like this emotionally, it's the dramatic side of me] I can simply crank that baby up and the firmer it gets. Magic really.

If you were to ask me if you should buy this mattress, I would absolutely say yes. We have had 100% success with it so far and love that we can check the app in the morning to see how we actually slept. The price is affordable, it is delivered within 5 days of ordering and you have 30 days to try it! If you don't like it, simply send it back for $99 [however, I can almost guarantee you won't be doing so]. It has been so nice to find a mattress that we both love and feel good sleeping on. Miracles do happen, the proof is right here people.

So there we have it - the mattress that changed our sleep lives forever. Do any of you have this it™ bed by Sleep Number? If so, what are your thoughts?

ps. Maggie was still with us during the shooting of this post...I still can't believe that little pickle is gone, but she did love this mattress for the time she got to enjoy it! Maggie tested, Maggie approved. We miss you girlfriend :( 

Disclosure: Thank you to the it™ bed by Sleep Number to partnering for today's post. While we were gifted the mattress, we have been using it for a few months now and the results are my honest opinion.



  1. So happy you reviewed the mattress. We are looking into a new bed frame and will need a mattress too. This will be at the top of our list!
    Sorry about Sweet Maggie. My heart broke for you when I saw these pictures.

  2. I have heard amazing things about the sleep number!!

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
