How to shop for a mattress

This is a sponsored post, all thoughts and opinions expressed are solely my own. Shopping for a new mattress can be stressful and time consuming. It's often a big ticket item that needs to be budgeted and planned for, and many brands recommend replacement after 10 years or so. We all probably have different ideas of how to shop for a mattress, even between the two people that may be sharing one :) We let our last mattress go almost 15 years before replacing, and when the time came, we went to numerous stores to test out every brand and…

The History of Texting

The History of Texting Technology has come a long way in my lifetime. This may age me, but I remember rotary phones, and phones having the option of Pulse Dialing or Touch Tone. Getting a "Wireless" home phone was a big deal, and in high school, having a "Beeper" or Pager was the "IN" thing.
