Where Did Summer GO?!

Seriously, I feel like I just blinked and it’s the end of August. What the heck?! Why is time going so FAST!?

I admit, I’m definitely not as young as I use to be!  Holy Guacamole Batman; having Alice here with me made me realize that kid has A LOT of energy!!! I am TIRED!! It definitely proves having kids when your younger is totally the way to go! These people that have kids in there 50’s and 60’s are NUTS!! (sorry, if you are one of them. I still love you…. I just wonder where you get your energy and can I buy some?!?!)

Which brings me to sleep. With a 7-year-old that has been on summer break and staying up later; not to mention a new to us house, getting her to sleep at night was a STRUGGLE to say the least. Add to that the fact that the room stays light (remember I’m on the top of a mountain with a spectacular view so I opted for no curtains. Might not have been the best idea since this room never seems to be dark!)  Sorry, I wandered off there for a minute.

Basically; SLEEP. I need more than Alice seems to need. I also can’t ever seem to get comfortable! Tossing and turning that I am just associating with turning 60. Who knows. I just can’t sleep all night long. (p.s. I miss you sleep!!)

Back in California I had grabbed a mattress topper for our old mattress. I loved it. The Husband well; not as much as I did. So when I made a move to grab a new one for this house he frowned. (Blah, blah, blah Hello!! Y’all know me, I do what I want anyway) Then I noticed I could order the Twin XL which will fit our new bed adjustable bed (which is 2 mattresses and totally independent of each other) It’s A WIN, WIN!!

Hello Comfort & Relax 3″ Gel Mattress Topper!! I love you. What is so great about this topper?

The topper is 3″ thick and 79″ long and 37.5″ wide. It fits my side of the bed PERFECTLY!!!

The topper is a ventilated Gel-Infused Air Cell Technology Memory Foam that conforms to my body and never goes flat. Each and every morning the topper bounces right back into shape. 

The topper arrives with a cover that is not only removable but washable as well. Added bonus is the cover has small dots on the underside that help keep the topper in place. 

The next perk that I really like is the elastic bands on each corner so the topper stays in place. I am here to say this topper does not move around on my mattress.





Shipping; the topper arrives compressed and the directions say to let it set for two days so that it completely recover. As promised the topper did expand to fit my bed perfectly.

I didn’t notice any scent surrounding the topper.

Add in the 5-year warranty and it makes a great investment in my favorite pastime SLEEP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The foam is CertiPUR-US certified. It contains no formaldehyde, harmful phthalates, or PBDE flame retardants and is low VOC. This mattress does not contain synthetic or natural latex of any kind. 

Now, my pretty bed in my beautiful new bedroom allows me to sleep allllllll night long!! BTW how pretty is my new comforter?!?  Don’t ya love the color?!?!

Just in case you forgot about my spectacular view from the bed…….. (I know… I know…. rub it in…. sorry)

    I couldn’t sleep without blackout blinds! Wonder how much the remote control ones are. That way you’d sleep well AND have your drool-over view at the press of a button!
