We got a new couch today. I've been waiting for the day we could replace our old couch since, well, since the day we got it.
It was handed down to me and Clay from my grandparents and lord knows how long they had it. A super long time. So our old couch is literally old. It's saving grace was the fact that it's super comfy because it wasn't exactly pretty. For the last two years it's been slipcovered but I'm not so sure it's helped the its appearance at all.
I stopped at Pier 1 for some browsing and there sat the. perfect. couch. I'm not even kidding, it was PERFECT. And it was on sale! So I called Clay- you have to meet me here right now; the sale ends tonight and this is the most amazing couch! Do you know what he said to me? CAN YOU EVEN GUESS WHAT HE SAID TO ME? "I trust your opinion, if you like it then go ahead and get it." Clay has never uttered these words to me before. EVER. Anyone remember how long it took us to settle on the furniture in our family room? A good three months of browsing numerous furniture stores. That phrase was all I needed. I paid and today they delivered.
My son wants a superhero theme for his upcoming fourth birthday party. So naturally he and his guests need capes and masks. I spent the afternoon sewing them up and it was so worth the time- complete adorableness.
