A new bed and fun times

Yesterday, Curtis and I went bed shopping. Thanksgiving is coming. Allison will be home and there are no extra beds in our house anymore. We decided to buy a new bed for ourselves and put ours in the extra bedroom. It was an exhausting day. Who would have thought that laying down on beds, getting up from beds and rolling over and bouncing on beds would be so tiring? I especially liked the part where I laid there and made Curtis get up and down over and over so I could see if I felt him moving. Laughing You know, he is slightly bigger and weighs a bit more than me....

We finally decided on a King Size Tempurpedic. (Can you say monthly payments?) Then, we had to go shopping for sheets and a comforter because our old bed was a queen. Who would have thought this man I've been married to for 30 years would suddenly have an opinion about what colors he wanted to decorate our room in? What a beating! Not really. I enjoyed his input and he was willing to go to more than one place to look. We settled on sage and yellow from Target and we now have a pretty new bed. Fun times! I didn't sleep very well, though. I guess it will take getting used to. Also, there was this big huge space between us all night while we slept. No elbows in the side and no extra body heat. How great is that?!

Detta,
You won't like that King-Size bed! hehehe We have a queen and went on vacation in Branson and slept in a King and we missed each other. lol

I bought a queen when I got divorced b/c I didn't think I'd ever remarry. Fast forward 5 years, add a hubby AND a 4 year old. I wish I would've splurged on the king!!

Can't wait to see pics of the pretty bedding!

We have always gone California King (a little longer for us tall folks). We love it and I hope you end up loving yours...it is hard to get used to new beds!
