More Couches, Yes Please!

Guess who is getting even more couches!! WE ARE!!! Yup, we finally found a new living room couch, chair, ottoman, side table and coffee table today. If you've been to our house before, especially around Halloween, you would have already seen our "Hall of Abandoned Couches: Abandoned, Scary, For Sale" and wondered, why do they need MORE couches??? The den has 3 couches, 2 of which we don't want, we have a couch and loveseat in the living room AND another small couch in our room because it won't fit anywhere else. Out of ALL those couches we only want one of them (the antique yellow one in the Hall). We space our furniture purchases out, and now it's living room time. Our cheap blue sofas have got to go. The stuffing is literally starting to come out of them and I will never, ever have another sofa that is basically only made up of pillows. They just don't last. And this go around as we're buying furniture we're buying NICE pieces. Classic pieces that are pricey, but built to last. So today began living room shopping and after several stores we found a great leather sofa that we loved. We didn't have any luck finding an armoire large enough for our TV, but we'll keep shopping and there are some great antique stores around we're going to check out.

Here's a chair that made me feel like a midget, but it was really a fun chair:

This is what we ended up getting: the sofa, a chair, the ottoman, the coffee table and the side table in the back. Everything is in the brown color of the chair - not the reddish color of the couch.

They've got to make it, and it should be 6-8 weeks before it's here, so that will be a nice Christmas gift for us! Maybe by then we can have the armoire and also have curtain fabric picked out. Then the living room will be done!

It's been a great weekend here. Friday night we did some clearance Halloween shopping and got a fog machine (woo hoo!) and Saturday we spent all day in the yard. Mowing, trimming trees and things around the house, I got half of the picket fence out front painted and we got all the Halloween decor down from indoors and out. A block party benefit was going on one street over so we enjoyed listening to the bands all day while we were outside painting and working in the yard. We also did final measurements for our new fence and visited some lumber places today to work on the pricing there.

It was a great weekend, Pips and I had a long walk yesterday and a nice jog Friday, and Brent and I did some swimming today. Tomorrow night is our last swim class!!!! I am SO glad! I'm really glad we did the lessons and know how to swim now, and I also realize that swimming laps over and over is not a big love of mine! Our plan is to continue swimming twice a week and work on speed/endurance but that's about it. Distance swimming is not in my future, but fitness swimming is! I also got a new pair of running shoes today that I look forward to breaking in this week! YAY! I've worn the Mizuno Wave Inspire 2's for years and now they've upgraded to the 3's, so I am a little nervous.

Have a great week everyone!
