Halloween's Around the Corner!

Did you get your candy yet? We haven't. I hope we don't pay a slacker surcharge. Or get stuck handing out boxes of raisins.

Sleepy's Mattress/Bedding Contest!

It's almost obli-cation time! 

1.       Obli-cation*
A required or expected visit to family/in-laws during your vacation time. Not exactly what would qualify as a holiday, but would be a combined obligation/vacation.
*Definition from

Obli-cations can be stressful and sleeping conditions ranging from the barely tolerable to the unbearably terrible can compound the situation.

Just in time for the busy holiday travel season, Sleepy’s has a plan to help “insure” you against the angst of an awful night’s sleep away. Sleepy’s is looking for terrible tales of family sleepovers gone awry. Slumber sufferers can visit
Sleepy’s Facebook or blog and post their stories for a chance to win a new mattress and bedding.

Disclosure: This contest is sponsored by Sleepy's. I have not been compensated for this post. Good luck - I hope you win one of their sweet mattresses!

Halloween: Cute & Cuddly or Pop - Culty?

So, I had the perfect little costume for Baby D and was quite proud of myself because it involved clothing that he could wear any other day of the year. I hate spending money on things you can only wear once. Which is why I wore a pant suit to my wedding.

I kid.

But seriously, I had a little outfit that mirrors the clothing of a certain MTV reality star. I know. I'm a 16 year old girl. When I revealed my plans to Big D, he asked when I'm going to pick up a "real" costume.

Does Baby D really have to be a fuzzy duckling, lion, wallaby, suckling pig or any similarly cute and mundane animal?

Can't he just be Flava Flav or Pauly D?

Sleepy's Dr. Breus Bed MattressReview

With everything that's been going on, I forgot to tell you how well we've been sleeping since we got our new Dr. Breus bed. I was first introduced to the bed when I attended Dr. Breus Back to School sleeping tips presentation. Since then, Sleepy's has delivered a bed from the Dr. Breus Platinum Signature Series and let me tell you, baby, we are sleeping pretty damn well. I've owned expensive pillowtops in the past and nothing compares to this. It's the Cadillac of beds. Hands down.

When the Sleepy's guys set it up, I knew I was in for a treat when I saw that the actual sides of the bed and box spring are covered in velour. You know, that super-comfy sweatsuit material that you want to wear to get cozy on stormy days. There was also something very regal about the large blue label embrodered in silver thread that said, Princess, you won't feel any peas under this mattress. Yes, I totally made a fairytale reference

The pillow-top on the mattress was soft enough for me and firm enough for Big D. It also held our body tempurature just right - not bathing us in sweat like some others do. It is extremely conducive to a comfortable sleep and I've found myself dozing off after reading just one page of an otherwise interesting suspense novel.

While the price point is up there, you can easily find these beds on sale at Sleepy's for half off - bringing them well into standard pillow-top territory. The night's sleep you get fully justifies the price - especially when you think about the amount of time you spend (or are supposed to) spend in bed.

Dad! Mom's a Black Lady!

A couple of weeks ago, Baby D picked out a photo of two children in Time Out New York (its how he plans his weekends). Pointing to the young black girl sitting next to her young white male counterpart in the picture, Baby D exclaimed, "Mommy!". He has gone on to do this with other photos in books and magazines, always picking out the brown-skinned young woman or girl in the background (never women appearing my age - the kid knows how to flatter a gal!).
