Natalie's New Post

My daughter has indicated that she is ready for a new post, so here goes. We just got back from spending way too much money on some new furniture -- and I"m so jazzed I"m about to bust! We went to Rooms To Go as a result of their ad in the paper this morning and checked out a nice-looking leather sofa that was on the front page of their ad. Sad to say, however, that it didn't look as nice in person and it sure didn't feel very nice. So we walked around the store and found something we liked a lot (and was it on sale too? of course not!!) and went ahead and bought not only the couch, but a big chair and ottoman as well. And we had to buy a funky chair for Mark too -- that seems to be family tradition. It's all really cute though and I'm happy and if I was as smart as Natalie is, I'd have pictures to show you. But I"m not, and I don't. (I actually looked at Rooms to Go's website and I don't see anything that even resembles what we bought - so who knows?) Anyhow, it was a good shopping trip and I love the stuff and they will even deliver this Thursday instead of making me wait forever. Then we went to Costco and bought a pedestal and a patio umbrella for the new patio Mark is finishing up (with Chris and Maya's help today) -- so now I feel broke. But happy.

Roses and new furniture?? What a great week you're having! I love getting new furniture, it is so much fun. You will have to post pictures once it's all delivered.

You are having a good week. I never like what's on sale either. I always like the most expensive thing in the store...oh well :)

Heather said...

I like your blog too by the way. Cute pictures of your babies.

Thanks Heather! I love the pics of the kiddoes. And you and I agree on something else -- I never buy what's on sale. I guess I have expensive tastes! I always WANT to like the sale items! Sigh.

expensive taste is why i have no money. if only i wasn't a shoe, purse, furniture, and clothing snob, i'd be perfectly set in life. you're lucky jan! i've been craving new furniture for a while!

It is SO fun to get new furniture. We got a bed this week and I am so happy! We had been sleeping on a mattress on a boxspring for a while. The movers broke our old bed in the move, which to me was a good thing- I was getting tired of the old one anyways:) It has taken this long for me to find one that I like. I am so picky. Enjoy your new stuff!
