Have a great day!

Have a great day Janae!


I love your 15 minutes a day to reset idea. I’m going to try that! Thank you friend, you too!


Janae! You need a heated mattress pad. I love mine. My husband is a hot sleeper so he doesn’t want an extra blanket on top. The mattress pad has dual controls so he doesn’t ever have to use his. I don’t even plug it in. But my side I can turn on and get toasty warm! It’s amazing!

Have a good day Janae ?

Hi Janae! If you want to take your bed warmth to the next level, did you know you could get a heated mattress pad? My mother in law had one and would turn it on a half hour before she got into bed.
