*Update on the Voting System* I set the perimeters where each IP address can vote multiple times. It may allow you to vote on more than one photo a day or the same one over and over….it is sensitive, so if you click in the area of a picture accidentally, it will record it as a vote. Please understand-all the votes are being recorded fairly and each one is being counted if it fits in the perimeters. It may look wonky on your end, but it’s the system trying to keep up with multiple votes coming in at the same time. On my end, the voting looks very accurate and this is a reliable system.”
Warning: This is going to be fun!
How about I share some random mattress facts from my memory bank before I announce our finalists? Because I’ve got them.
- Growing up, my sister had a cat. It hated me. We would have staring contests and the cat would win. On one particular hateful day, in the middle of the night, the cat crawled up into my twin bed (I shared a room with my sister and she slept in her own twin bed, next to me) and peed on my legs and mattress. I woke the whole house up with my, um, behavior. [Moral: Cats always win and cat pee means a new mattress]
- In college, I lived in an ancient dorm and we would start on the third floor and have mattress rides down to the basement (four flights of stairs!) It was a blast. We’d then drag those flimsy, dirty things back into our rooms and sleep on them. Back then, my back never hurt! [Moral: I am old. But not too old to try that again someday]
- At one of my first jobs, my boss constantly talked about flipping her mattress while nude. It scarred me. She also reminded me to “wear lipstick” every day while I worked in the back room, shipping dept. [Moral: You don’t have to flip a good mattress: i.e. Tempur-Pedic Contour Signature, lipstick is optional]
Alrighty, then. I think I’ve scared y’all enough.
Now for the fun part: A team of objective people from the PR firm who are working with Tempur-Pedic on this giveaway narrowed down the fabulous entries to what you see below. [Please note: I did not have any say in the finalists and didn’t even know who they were until a couple of hours ago. And just so you know the choices aren’t biased, most of the finalists are anonymous since their pictures don’t link anywhere. There were several entries over 75 characters, but since there was a glitch in the Linky program and it didn’t notify entrants, those entries were not disqualified.]
Please cast your vote and if you see your own entry, you are free to use the power of social media (twitter, facebook, blog, the telephone, etc) to gather some support!
One vote per ip address.
person per day (with a total of 10 votes per IP Address). Voting ends Sunday, Sept. 11. Please read an explanation of how voting works here.
Ready, Set, GO!

Disclaimer: I’m beyond excited and thrilled to be a part of this Tempur-Pedic campaign and giveaway! Although I’m being compensated for this program, the opinions are mine. I’m also happy to say that Tempur-Pedic chose my blog for this campaign because of my involvement with Mercy House. The monetary compensation from this program will be given to Mercy House. But I’m gonna keep the bed. And it just doesn’t get better than that!
