Color me shocked! We walked into the first store, stretched out on the first mattress and bought it! Shall I call a doctor? 🙂
Jeremy recommended Wayside Furniture to us when we first got here and that’s where we’ve bought everything we’ve bought so far . . which is a total of a love seat, recliners and now a mattress set.
We left home, went to Hobby Lobby. Vince wanted to get more lacing/weaving plastic and some findings for making/finishing the different things he and Addie were making. Then we went to Home Depot for stakes for measuring out the fence around the garden. Then we went to the paint store to pick out deck stain because the guy working on our deck was supposed to come Thursday to start refinising it but it rained too much today and is supposed to rain tomorrow. Spring in Missouri is no time to get a deck refinished. From there we went to the furniture store.
You can’t tell much about it from the picture but here it is.
I fell in love with the first mattress we tried. Vince wanted me to try them, then whatever ones I liked, he’d try, so we walked around and I tried a few more. I went back to the first one, which is a Chattam & Wells Hamilton Luxury model. I had never heard of Chattam & Wells so the salesman explained a bit about it. Then Vince tried it. He said “It feels better than our current mattress!” He’s never liked the Restonic that I have so we agreed to make the following changes:
- Addie’s mattress set gets hauled away.
- Our current mattress goes to the basement bedroom.
- The basement mattress set goes to Addie’s room.
- The new mattress goes on our bed.
It will be delivered Friday. As much as I love my Restonic set, I’m really excited about getting this new one. This means I have to change the sheets on three beds Friday!
I still can’t believe we walked into the first store and bought it within 10 minutes. I read him the blog post I had written earlier and told him he made a liar out of me. 🙂 That’s fine! I’d rather get good surprises than bad surprises.
As we were leaving the store, Vince said “Are you done buying furniture now?” I’ve bought recliners, a love seat and now mattresses. I think Vince may need to see how often other wives get new furniture. This is probably all the exact furniture we’ll have when we go to the old folks home in 20 or 25 years. He’s a lucky man . . and I’m not sure he even knows it . . though I do tell him often. 🙂
