Love post #11

Yesterday, Prince Charming & I headed out & found ourselves at a furniture store. We went out for lunch on Valentine's day & decided to go look around at a furniture store that was going out of business. We fell in love with a set we wanted for our living room. The "sale" was ending yesterday, so we decided we needed to make a decision. He picked me up & off we went. Even though we both loved the set we had seen, we felt like we should look around, just to make sure that was THE set for us. As we were walking around, we both kept going back to "THE" set at the other place. We walked to the back of the showroom & as I was looking at a set, he looks over & says "There it is, that's our set". HOLY COW, he was right, it was right next to us. We looked at the price & ya know something, it was cheaper here than at the original place we saw it where it was supposedly on sale! Let's just say that we ended up getting the couch, loveseat, chair, table, floor lamp & table lamp for less (LOTS less) than what we would have paid for just the couch, loveseat & chair! Not only that, but we got to load it up & take it home right then & there! We spent the remainder of the day cleaning & moving stuff around to give our new treasures a home.


Because the "toy room" is part of the living room, we got creative so it would all fit.
Ya know something, we LOVE it! I love looking downstairs & seeing my room look so nice & inviting. In fact, it's so inviting, I spent almost all day today curled up on the couch with my laptop, phone, & book!
Anyway, I love my new furniture & I love my hubby! OH, what makes this even cooler & the reason I'm super excited... we've been married going on 14 years & this is only the 2nd time we've ever bought furniture. The first was when we moved into this house almost 2 years ago, we bought a couch & loveseat for the family room. Everything else in our house has been given to us. Now, don't get me wrong, we have been extremely blessed & I'm NOT complaining, It was just so nice to go out & find something we both loved & buy it. We are slowly making our house a home that really fits "us".

I know some of you will probably look at this & wonder why in the world we would go with something not very formal in a formal living room. Well, we are NOT formal people, we are about as casual as they come. We wanted something nice, but something that was "us", something that would hold up to the kids, but also look nice in the room.

Anyway, I'm super excited & I LOVE it. Oh, mom, this last pic is for you, I wanted you to see the pillows I got, what do you think?

That is great Brynn and I totally understand that rare feeling of getting to buy "brand new" and picking it out yourself. =] I also understand the casual style. Great choice.

Love your choice Brynn, especially the beautiful lamps. I can totally understand you wanting more casual furniture. I'm personally not a big fan of the formal part of a formal living room. I want something I can LIVE in. :-)

Fun, fun, fun!!! We bought our very first furniture last fall...after 17 years of marriage! I totally get that wonderful feeling of having something YOU picked out. Enjoy your lovely new stuff!

I love it all! I have to admit that my nose always wrinkles at the idea of a formal living room. I know they serve a purpose but I think it would be useless for us.. unless we all sat around formally and watched Aidan play his guitar and Mike play the drums, cuz that's what it would probably be used for.
