introducing my bed… (and a sleep number giveaway!).

You guys. Today is a big, big day. I woke up in my OWN bed. No joke. This is huge for me. Do you realize I’ve been living with my in-laws for two years? And sleeping in the tiny bed my husband slept in when he was 15? Yes. Enter saintly congratulatory comments below.

EDIT: Martha from Scottdale, GA — you are our winner! Sleep Number will be emailing you shortly, and congrats!

Anyway, our renovation is in the home stretch, and I am so crazy excited to move in. I mentioned a few weeks ago that our Sleep Number bed arrived, and then last week? Our gorgeous bedding showed up on our doorstep. And although I really want to wait until a few last minute jobs are completed to 100% call this place home, I couldn’t help snoozing in such a cozy bed.

So, to celebrate… (hurry and sit down). I’m giving away a Sleep Number bed. Actually, my Sleep Number friends are giving it away, but I’m helping. And it’s our biggest giveaway yet. Did I mention it’s a Sleep Number? Gracious. I’m pumped.

Anyway, sorry for the rambling. Here’s how to enter:

1. Sign up for a Sleep Number newsletter (they send you awesome deals, discounts and don’t spam. Promise.)
2. Enter ‘designformankind‘ in the “How Did You Hear About Us” section or you won’t be eligible to win. For serious. Don’t forget that part.
3. Wait by your inbox. I’ll announce the winner in THREE WEEKS. Are you psyched? Me, too.

The bed you’ll receive (should you be the lucky winner!) is a P7, the exact model I have in my own home. Value is nearly $3,000. You lucky things, you.


  • Yaaaaaaaaay!! Hooray for you! Isn’t it nice to have a nest?!

    And, holy crap, would I love to win this bed!!!

  • huzzah! congratulations! it’s beeeeeautiful! the only thing nicer than a nice, big comfy bed is your very own nice, big comfy bed.
    can’t wait to see images of the entire house all polished.

  • thanks, frances! it’ll probably be a few months (we’re still living amongst a bit of sawdust!), but i can’t wait to share the photos!

  • i babysat for a family two weeks ago that had this bed. it was a crazy 24 hour babysitting gig (that i’ll never do again), but i got to sleep in their bed. so much fun! after playing around with my “number” i finally went to sleep and man o man. you’re so awesome to be sharing the love of good sleep with this giveaway! and high-five to you for getting through 2 years of living with the in-laws! :)

  • oh, i know the sawdust saga all too well. Definitely worth it and I’m sure it’s worth the wait too.
    Sleep well tonight!

  • Best giveaway ever! My bed is far, far too old… and way, way too firm! I’m a ‘soft and smushy’ fan, and my husband’s taste is more ‘concrete slab.’

    Oooooh! And, I can’t wait to see the finished product in all it’s glory!

  • thanks for a chance! i stayed at a hotel that had a sleep number at is was amazing! we are in need of a new bed, would LOVE this one!!!

  • no way, I’ve been wanting one of these for YEARS! I hope I win I hope I win I hope I win!! Also, congratulations on your redo almost being over! I can’t wait to see everything. You are amazing girl.

  • Gorgeous! I’d love to be able to kiss my old, fugly & uncomfortable mattress goodbye. Thanks for the tip.

  • how exciting for you! nothing beats sleeping in your own bed so i can just imagine how happy you are after two years! i just entered the giveaway and am crossing my fingers and toes, even!

  • Congratulations on getting to sleep in your own bed! What an awesome feeling. And, thanks for hosting the contest. Crossing my fingers that my insomniac self will win the big prize!

  • No lie, when I was signing up for the newsletter, my 18 year old mattress creaked, groaned, and a spring boinged, right into my lower back. LOL.

  • I just wanted to say hello, I love your blog, hope your new place is amazing, and I would be so excited to win this bed! <3

  • Whoa! Congratulations! What a trooper- two years w the in-laws? I need to buy some futures in your marriage! Can’t wait to see the big reveal!!!

  • I really need a bed – mine is passed down from 2 generations of previous medical students. My back hurts often in the hospital :( I like yours a lot. Can you, me and Sleep Number dudes be friends so I can get a new bed?

  • Jeez…I had NO idea how long you were at the in-laws’ place! Sleeping in the teenage bed was probably cute…for like one night. :-) Congrats on having your big girl bed!

  • maybe i’m just having issues, but when i signed up for the newsletter, there was no “how did you hear about us” section. i signed up anyway hoping it would come up somewhere after, but it didn’t. i signed up AGAIN, and put it in the messages field, but i have no idea if i’m entered or not? nobody else is reporting an issue, so i’m afraid this is a user error…

  • hi christina — hold tight. it looks like an admin error on sleep number’s part! i’ll keep you posted…

  • Yay, I was the winner for the bed giveaway! Thanks for doing such a fantastic giveaway and thank you so much for letting us watch your journey as you make this house your home. As new parents, my husband and I are looking forward to getting a good night’s sleep in our new bed thanks to you and Sleep Number! It’s going to be delicious.

    Thanks again :)
