Amerisleep AS3 Reviews

  My Amerisleep AS3 Unboxing Video (Surprise, my voice is ridiculous!) If I can (just barely) do it, you can totally tackle a bed-in-a-box by yourself. Updated 10/15/22 Amerisleep's AS5 was recently featured as the 'Best Soft Mattress in a Box' by Good Housekeeping , with the panel of reviewers noting: Pressure relief for side sleepers Taller than other boxed mattresses Good customer service    Amerisleep Mattress Reviews  We've been happy Amerisleep customers since purchasing our first AS3 mattress more than 9 years ago. Now we also have an AS2 and an AS4 (the AS3 is still our favorite). Born with chronic insomnia  (even as a baby - my family insists I was a nightmare), the struggle to improve my sleep is my life. My husband, the overly-analytical mechanical engineer, was initially skeptical of a mail-order mattress, but he was quickly won over. 2012: Wine glass test, sans wine.

Visit Copenhagen   Timed perfectly to enjoy the dazzling holiday lights, mulled wine, and ebelskivers at Tivoli Gardens, SN and I were in Copenhagen from November 25-30th. (Photos post 1 of 2...because 80 photos seemed like waaay too many for one blog post.)  Ever since our trip to Australia, Sexy Nerd insists I pose like this whenever we come across a cannon. It happens more often than you might expect. The Worker's Museum in Copenhagen. We didn't get it. That look you get when your cactus-obsessed husband has spent too much time in the desert section of the greenhouse. This last phot
