While I was home for Thanksgiving my dad gave me a sleep number bed they used before they built a bigger, even better four poster.

It took me awhile to get around to it, but I finally got it assembled. This is just in time for Christmas, so I’m counting this as a gift (thanks dad!)

The thing about the sleep number that makes it cool is it uses high-grade air bladders to make the bed as firm or soft as any bed could possibly be.

The effect is surprising, because the mattress is always guaranteed comfortable no matter what mood your in. Combine this with the electric heated sheet we use and it’s ridiculous.

The first night, I climbed in to test it out and was asleep within minutes, even though I didn’t feel extra tried I was out for our 10 hours.

In the end I have to say that it is indeed the best mattress I’ve ever had, but this is one of the things you don’t know you need until you have one thrust upon you so it’s impossible to take a recommendation seriously.

But if you can get one, you totally should.
