The Mattress Debacle....

Sorry it has been so long since I last blogged! I feel like sometimes we are just running from one thing to the next and falling into bed at night, but man, we sure are having fun!

We recently bought a lake house at Grand Lake and Jackson and I went up the weekend before last to spend some time there while Renzi was at his brother's bachelor party. This past weekend Renzi, Jackson and I all went together and boy did we have a great time. The weekend before I had purchased a King Size Mattress, Box Springs and Bed Frame for a steal at this place in Grove, OK called, "The Cheapo Depo." (don't judge by the name, it checks out and you won't believe the price we got it for!). Friday when we got to the lake we headed up to the place to get the mattress. The guys there tied up the mattress on top of the car and the box springs in the car with the frame. I remember Renzi specifically telling one of the guys to "make sure you tie it up super tight."

Well, we took off to the house, which is only about 10 miles away from the store. It was a rainy and windy day, but when we got to the top of the bridge at Grove a HUGE gust of wind came and we watched helplessly as our mattress flew off of the car and almost caused a four car pile up on the bridge. We had to circle back and when we came to the mattress we couldn't believe it hadn't fallen in the lake. Well, given my current state of pregnancy I wasn't much help and poor Renzi was trying to manuever this mattress on top of the bridge, now in a full out rain storm on his own. Thankfully, 20 seconds later this really nice man and his wife pulled up and helped us get the mattress into his truck and he followed us all of the way to our house. Above is a picture of the nice couple. Man, I love Oklahoma.
