Sofamazing & This Weekend

Here’s what the majority of our tax return went to: a sofa of beauteous proportions. It gets delivered tomorrow, and I’m ever so excited. In the nearly four years of marriage Husband and I have shared, we’ve never had a couch that wasn’t a hand me down.

Our first sofa set was actually really nice. My parents gave it to us, and it was from their living room at the time. But my older brother somehow ended up stealing it from me. I dunno. I’m still scratching my head on that one. How did he end up with our sofas? And why did I not call the police?

Next came the Nasty Nightmare. We were once so desperate as to accept (gratefully, I might add) a black PLEATHER couch with dozens of tears in it that were “mended” with black duct tape, (it blended quite well, actually) but it was painful to sit on…all the tears made it quite sharp and uncomf.

We then took my other sister’s sofas that had been sitting in her garage for, like, a few months. They were dusty and ugly, but I was sick of my bony little butt getting cut from the fake pleather monstrosity. And that’s what we currently veg on. And don’t get me wrong, we’re grateful for everybody’s charity and ugly sofas, but really, it was time for something new and nice.

More pics to come, I’m sure, once the beautiful sofa arrives. I’m thinking of naming her Chutney. Yeah, I likes it!


On to other news: what's everyone doing this weekend? My Saturday morning/afternoon is pathetically wide open. Any ideas, anyone? Or better yet, anyone wanna take pity on me and ask a young mom to bring her crazy toddler to tag along with whatever it is you're doing? Lemme know.

Yay, new couch! My parents have a sectional like that and it is DIVINE. I have never sat on something more comfortable!

I'd love to hang out with you, if only I didn't live like, 1000 miles away or something.

Hey - you should hang out with me!!! You can come see the house, we could go to wal-mart so I can buy Juno (of course), and then we could go to Memory Grove park if it's nice out. What say you? P.S. You should really say yes.

I'll be done with work at 12:15 and we could grab lunch of some sort as well. Tis up to you.

Do let me know, won't you?

Hooray for couch by the way!

I wish I could hang out with you. I'd do it in a heartbeat, if only I didn't live a few states away...

sweet couch.. and although I am in az and am not close enough to be one of you hang out buddies... I AM GOING TO PROM. yes at 25 I get to go tp prom. Our stake holds a prom for the youth on Saturday and started holding one for the adults the night before. Sweet. You do what you are supposed to and get all married and have kids and such but you lose the right to have fun at dances (even if you don't dance)
anyway. I hope you have fun "breaking in your new sofa" ;-)

I looooove your new couch! I've only had one new couch my entire adult life, and now it's somewhere left in Kansas.....now I don't have any couch. I'm a bit nervous to invest in one as I'm sure my cat would attack the hell out of it and then I'd have to kill him. And I most certainly don't want to do that, but I also most certainly want a new couch! Take joy in your new comfort item....snuggle, watch movies, tv, read....you name it.
