It wasn’t all that long ago that I had a terrible bed and I paid the price for it. I was tossing and turning and thrashing in the night because I just couldn’t get comfortable. But then the good people at Serta decided to help a gal out and sent me a new bed set. The changes in my night’s sleep were ah-mazing. I can tell you truthfully that today my bed is just as firm and just as comfy as the day it was delivered. I freaking love this bed. I freaking love how comfortable I am in this bed.
I totally understand, now, why it’s so very important to have a good mattress. In this home, comfort is KING and it’s all thanks to Serta. Well, and a few little tricks I’ve picked up along the way :) To make sure our bedroom is as cozy and comfortable as possible, I now buy good quality, super deep sheets to fit my deep mattress. In the past I’ve stretched too small sheets on with safety pins popping and coming undone because that fitted sheet simply didn’t fit. These days I buy the appropriate size, and luckily they’re getting more and more common, therefore more and more affordable. I prefer high thread count cotton and I wash them in cold water to keep them from shrinking up.
Now I feel like the comforter is just as important as the mattress if you want to get a good night’s rest. My comforter is SO SOFT and super fluffy and it feels so nice when you tuck up into it at night. Plus it’s crazy lightweight since I sleep hot so it doesn’t roast me out of bed at night. Rob and I have 2 of the exact same comforter because we have pets. Part of us being happy is spending time with them and pets equal messes. This way we can have one in the wash if necessary and still have a nice, comfy comforter on the bed even after an accident of any kind.
But what the heck am I going on about and why did I take a crazy picture of myself with a Serta mattress at the store? Well, today I’m going to tell you about how Serta is encouraging you to make your nighttime comfort a priority with their ComfortSutra contest going on now. They’ve partnered with the always funny Loni Love to teach us all how to get comfortable and I’ve gotta tell you she knows of what she speaks.
But that’s not why I snapped that pic. I snapped that pic to enter in the “Comfort for Life” ComfortSutra Selfie Contest that Serta is having. It’s SO easy to enter. The next time you’re at a store that sells Serta Mattresses snap a pic of yourself with a Serta Mattress via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with #SertaComfortSutra and #Entry to be entered to win a pretty awesome prize package. If you win you’ll get a complete bedroom makeover complete with Serta pillows, blankets, sheets, pet beds and more to turn your space into one super comfortable personal sanctuary. But that’s not even the neatest part of this whole contest! The neatest thing is the winner will receive a new Serta Mattress every 5-7 years. Boom! That’s an awesome prize right there!
I mean even if you have to awkwardly try and figure out this whole selfie game in a store with strangers a new bed every 5-7 years is totally worth it, right? And how many times are you going to see those strangers again in your life? I’m betting not more than once or twice, haha! But seriously, I stink at selfies but heading out with my Mr. Rob to do this was actually dang fun :)
Because if you’re like us, a lot of life is spent in bed. It’s not only where we sleep at night but also where we read books when we aren’t feeling well, binge watch TV, cuddle and play with our pets and even where I kick Rob’s butt at board games :) Perhaps the center of the home with our guests is the kitchen, but for everyday life, the bedroom is where it’s at.
Now the ComfortSutra selfie contest doesn’t last forever. Be sure to submit your pic from August 26 to September 6 for your chance to win!
