Ergonomic Organic Sleep with the Naturepedic EOS {+ Giveaway!}

Even a kid can tell if their bed is not adequate, believe me. Hubby and I finally got a ‘good’ bed about four years ago. C’Man, being the oldest, followed a couple of years later. I hear almost weekly from O’Bear that he doesn’t like his bed. He KNOWS the difference.

Naturepedic contacted me to review a children’s bed and I might have been more excited – wait jealous – than O’Bear was because he was going to receive an organic mattress. Sleeping organic is the best possible thing you can do for your sleep health.

Why you ask?

How much time do we spend in our beds? Around eight hours, right? For the little ones the time is even more. When bedding materials are made with toxic chemicals we are in part breathing that in. Every.single.night. There are studies shown that these chemicals (in many products, not just mattresses) lead to adolescent disorders like allergies, asthma and worse.

Even ‘eco’ products might not really be from nature. Organic means certified and you know what you are getting from the testing they have gone through and the materials used laid out in plain view.


Our Naturepedic EOS {Ergonomic Organic Sleep} Mattress arrived in three boxes. Boxes like any other delivery. Hubby might have rolled his eyes a bit because he knew he would have to put it together, but since we were building it ourselves we knew exactly what he would be sleeping on. Don’t you ever wonder what is really inside your mattress??

Let me tell you why the EOS is so cool and might not be like anything you’ve ever seen. It is made with a multi-layered zippered construction that allows you to customize the layers from extra firm to plush. You not only can change out your layers years later if your preferences change (like with O’Bear who will have this mattress as he grows), but in the queen and king sizes you and your partner can have different layers on each side! Another great idea is when you are pregnant you feel and sleep different – now there is a solution in one bed.


Let me share a bit on the mattress itself…

You have two choices for the top 3″ of your mattress which is the customized side you can swap out. Latex is one of the most breathable and temperature neutral materials available and best of all it’s made from the sap of a rubber tree! Or high-density Microcoils are individually wrapped for full body-contouring comfort with construction that completely avoids the use of glues and adhesives!

The bottom 8″ is your encased coil support. Wrapped in a durable organic cotton outer casing, the EOS coils are again individually wrapped for full body-contouring comfort in a plant-based PLA fabric. This method ensures isolation of movement (so your partner can’t bug you!) while promoting balanced support for proper postural alignment —-> yes!

It is all enclosed in an organic wool batting cover which wicks away moisture, provides natural fire protection, and offers temperature regulation, keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Located directly under the wool, the PLA comfort layer adds resiliency to the quilt for increased performance and moisture wicking. Their non-GMO PLA is a made from potatoes and really is super soft!

Our full size bed is made with the top layer of microcoils in plush. I’ve pulled it back a bit so you can see the individual layers that came out of the box that we rolled out, inserted and stacked. Not hard at all! What we love about it is that it is not only cushy (aka plush), but you really feel supported which is very very important to chiro Hubby.

Again, the EOS has been thoroughly tested for chemical emissions and is certified to the stringent GREENGUARD® GOLD standard. You will also love that this is a family owned business right here in the USA where their skilled Amish craftsman take much pride in their work. The 20 Year Warranty says it all!

Naturepedic Organic

The other day I found O’Bear reading in his bed. Reading! This may be the norm for most kids, but I have such a hard time with this guy. I started teasing him that I caught him and he just smiles, “but mom my new bed is SO relaxing!”

I quickly snapped a pic so this moment would last. ha!


Organic sleep is about staying healthy both day and night and I urge you to check out for you and your kids when it comes to mattresses, sheets and pillows.

Speaking of pillows, Naturepedic wants to get you started to have a #SafeHealthySleep and will be giving away their Organic Cotton / PLA Pillow which is made with a 300 thread count 100% organic cotton outer fabric. The filling is made with 100% potato starch plant-based PLA batting.

Beyond the Mask DVD Giveaway – 2 Winners!

It’s Friday night! This means pizza and a movie at our house and we are all looking forward to watching the movie Beyond the Mask which is now available on DVD.

“A great movie for families that love History, Action, Adventure and Romance, ” Alex Kendrick who is the director of War Room (need to see!!), Courageous and FireProof (great movies!)

The reviews are good – think Christian mixed with National Treasure – don’t you love that? And you don’t have to worry about the kids because it is rated PG, so gather everyone together.

A trailer for you…

So excited because I know my boys are going to really like it and I don’t have to worry about any nudity or cussing like most action movies have.

Facts about Beyond the Mask:

Stars: Andrew Cheney (Seasons of Grey), Kara Killmer (Chicago Fire) and John Rhys-Davies (Return to the Hiding Place, The Lord of the Rings).

Synopsis: The leading mercenary for the British East India Company, Will Reynolds, has been double-crossed and now is on the run in the American colonies. Working to redeem his  name and win back the woman with whom he’s never been fully truthful, Will takes on a new mask in hopes of thwarting his former employer. As his past life closes in  on him, Will somehow must gain the trust and help of his beloved Charlotte—as well as  Ben Franklin—while he races time to defuse a plot of historical proportions. 

Beyond the Mask is a revolutionary new family film that brings history to life in a faith-filled adventure celebrating grace, liberty and the true freedom that can only be found in Christ.


Beyond the Mask is sold in stores nationwide and on Amazon.

bistroMD Healthy Food Delivery Service + Nice Discount Code!

You know me. I do not like to be the kitchen. To eat yes! To cook no. It’s hard to watch what you eat when you have a whole family to feed. Yes we definitely eat healthy meals – most of the time, but it takes a lot of planning and organizing. And when I eat by myself? You’d think it would be easy to throw something together, but I find myself snacking more which I’m not sure is good in the long run.

If losing weight is a battle for you because preparing food is the hard part, then I want you to check out bistroMD. Their healthy diet meal plans are based on the science of what your body needs to lose fat. You don’t have to worry about calories or portion sizes anymore because they do that for you. They have over 200 recipes to send to you so you’ll never go crazy with a repeat meal. You’ve been on those diets, right? The same thing over and over. I have.


I actually think they are great to look at without the weight loss aspect too. Having a prepared meal means I know I’m eating healthy and I save time! I also love them for my husband who brings his lunch to work everyday and if he forgets? It’s fast food. Now he can just grab a bistroMD out of the freezer and he has a healthy gourmet meal for lunch!

For breakfast it was fun eating Dark Chocolate Chip Crepes. Here is a picture of my egg scramble with cinnamon apples. Definitely treats!

For lunch I ate Jerk Spiced Tilapia with Mango Pineapple Salsa and Sweet and Sour Chicken. I really do eat while I work so these meals are great for not having to waste any precious minutes just thinking about what to make.

Dinner entrees like Hatch Green Chile and Pork  Stew, plus Roasted Turkey Breast with Cranberry Chutney and  Stuffing. It sounds like Thanksgiving! But you get it to enjoy it all year round.
