This is what dreams are made of....

I know this may come as a shock to you but there's a winter storm making it's way across parts of the U.S. I had no idea until I got on Facebook this morning and saw the 10 iPhone screenshots of the temperature on my feed. Not to mention, the 12 other pics of the temperature in their cars. I don't know about you but when it's -7 degrees the last thing I want to do is find my phone, take a picture, find the right filter, and then post it to every social media outlet I own. Also, I can't really feel my hands when it's below 40 so there's that problem too.

Anyway, enough with my complaining, yesterday morning two of santa's elves dropped off our new couch!

We've been waiting for it since October so you can imagine my excitement when it showed up on our front door/the Pottery Barn truck.

Before this we didn't have anything besides a leather chair in the corner. It was depressing. Some of you may know but Nate and I have had our struggles with furniture since the day I moved in last year. Here's the story, Nate was once in a relationship with a blue and white couch from the 80's. It was just the couch and him until I showed up. She was mad, and we got into several arguments when Nate wasn't around. So I gave him a choice,

It's either me or the couch.

You obviously know his answer but it wasn't pretty. So when it was time to move, the couch had to go because I refused to move it into our new home. You might be thinking "wow you're the worst person ever I can't believe he married you" and I often tell myself the same thing, but here's the deal... actually, I'm skipping the description of the couch and I'm just going to show it to you...

Ignore that precious face and let's focus on that couch. THAT COUCH. I can't handle it. It was time for it to find a new home. Craigslist helped us and it's now living inside the dorm of a college student where it belongs. We made some money off of it so you can't hate me too much Nate. 

We still need to furnish the dining room and the master bedroom. We're currently sleeping in the guest bedroom. Why don't you move the guest bedroom furniture into the master bedroom maxine? that doesn't make sense and you're somewhat right, but the master bedroom is too big for the furniture, and it would look empty. So that's our next big purchase. We're saving up for it now so we should have it by the spring.

Now that I've lost all of you, I'll wrap this up with one of my favorite music videos of all time....



  1. Love your new couch! We are saving up for new furniture for our living room.. I'm pretty sure that one of our couches is almost as bad as that blue one ha ha.

  2. Love that couch! I can't wait until we move into a more permanent place (we've lived in our apt for 2 yrs btw) and can get some new furniture. Our recliner has a straight up HOLE in it! haha

  3. love it, we are still on a mission for the perfect couch, we have purchased a dining room table and master bedroom set so whew, like you almost finished!

  4. I wish I could lie and say I DIDN'T read your title and sing "this is what dreeeeeeeeams are made of."

    Sing to me, Paolo.

  5. Now I need to watch that movie again - it's been forever since I've had a good old fashion sing along.

  6. Not going to lie, I saw that movie in theaters... twice. I cried when it ended. Both times.

    I'm so envious of your new couch!!! Ours is absolutely hideous and being hidden under an ugly, ill-fitting slipcover. Work it, girl.
