The Grizas Need New Mattresses!

The last 2 trips we have taken out of town, we realized that all of our friends and family have fabulous mattresses... and we are still sleeping on Erik's mattresses he bought for college in 1996 that cost $300! No wonder my back hurts everyday! Both Emily AND Susannah made us lay down in their bed to test out their mattresses ( in completely unrelated conversations) when we were in Atlanta. Jason, who is VERY frugal went on and on about how everyone MUST invest in a good mattress... so we were already sold before visiting Celie in Mobile last week.
Her guest bed was amazing and we were both looking forward to going to bed every night! so upon returning home we decided to go mattress shopping.
Our only problem was that we didn't clarify with each other what shopping means. To Laura it means decide first on exactly what you want, then look all over the earth to find it for as cheap as possible. To Erik, mattress shopping meant walking in Macy's, laying on some beds and then pointing to the one he likes and paying for it. Tisk Tisk.. ha but after a couple of fits we were actually successful.
I am more excited about the arrival of this new mattress than many things I can think of! Getting a good nights sleep is really worth it's weight in Gold!
Does anyone out there have mattress feedback or suggestions? We went with Sealy Posturpedic, but we have a 30 day sleep test incase we dont like it.

no suggestion - we're sleeping on a 10 year old mattress. i think it is time for us to upgrade as well.

We have a Sealy too. I like it, so hopefully y'all will too. And yes the mattress is the most important thing you can purchase for a bedroom. And Erik shops like Trent and I...we walked into a store this weekend, looked at 2 tv stands, and bought one immediately. One store, that's our scheme. :)

my suggestion is to do whatever Erik says to do. This doesn't necessarily only apply to mattress shopping, but should exist as a general rule of thumb. :)
