As I mentioned in my previous post, I would love to share about a special gift that had surprised my husband. Since I got the second job, I had started to think one day I would give a very special gift for our 10th Anniversary. What was that? I still didn't know at that time. The idea came up when we moved last year to a small-renovated home, I noticed that our bed looked old--more than 15 years old--besides it was too firm. It was not good for him who has pain on his neck and shoulder. We needed a better mattress, and I wanted it with a very good quality. I knew it wasn't cheap, so I prayed I would get it when big discount came. My prayer was answered at the time I wasn't sure if I could realized it.
When I went to associate room to have lunch, there was nobody. I saw pieces of newspaper spread all over the tables, so I decided to collect all and brought them to my table and started to read page by page. In the end of the page I read, there was a full page of Sleepys advertisement. They were having BIG DISCOUNT!!! I was stunned with the prize for a mattress and decided the next day I planned to take a look. One of their branch stores is located near my work, so I just took a walk to get there. Finally I wasn't satisfied with the real mattress they offered like on the newspaper. They made it look much better on the picture than the real one. I kept looking all mattresses but nothing I could afford in the short time but I still kept waiting for the salesman who was serving two other customers. When one customer was done, he then served the second one and asked me what I needed politely and friendly after he commented that the advertiser used to made the things look much better than the real one of what they were presenting.
He pointed a mattress located across the place where I stood up--even I passed it, how I could??? My eyes opened widely--didn't believe with the prize they gave: discount $400 and it was included with its boxspring. WOW!!! With his permission, I tried to lie down on it several minutes. I was very sure it was the mattress my husband need. He suggested me to lock the price and I did with only a small payment $100, and then I could pay the rest whenever I wanted till the time I chose for delivery after I explained him it would be for my husband gift for our 10th Anniversary. (I could not believe it!!!)
|This is not a real mattress and boxspring I bought. It's similar like that for its performance. I think it isn't available to buy online because I have searched it several times.|
|The delivery men came around 4.30 PM on Friday, Oct 5, 2012 when I was making cupcakes. They brought a mattress, a boxspring, mattress cover, and boxspring cover.|
|My husband came from work around 9.30 PM when I was busy applying make up on my face (hehehe!). When I went downstairs, I asked him to read my recent post about Celebrating Our 10th Anniversary (Part I)|
|Then it was the time to give a special gift in a white long-regular envelope.|
|I called him: My Groom. I think we remarried again, hahaha!!!|
|He opened the envelope and read my note.|
|This is what I wrote.|
|He was speechless--could not say anything.|
|But, I still didn't want him to go upstairs to see the mattress. He needed to have his supper first to give him more energy.|
|On Sunday morning two delivery men arrived. I started to arrange to make it look neat and beautiful with layering new satin bedspread with its matched pillow covers. I bought them from a clearence rack. (How lucky I was to find them).|
|I added a small touch: a small accent pillow, a gift from children couple years ago.|
