Apparently finding a new couch is a lot like searching for bigfoot.

In previous posts, I have tried to explain in so many words how much I hate my current couch. Actually, we don’t even use it. Ever.

We’ve been talking about getting a new couch for years now, but have never had the money to do so. I’m finally fed up with ghetto styling it & sitting on the floor, so we are taking the leap into getting a new couch.

I was under the impression that we’d go to a few places, find the one, it’d be delivered next week & we’d live happily ever after. No, no, no. Apparently finding a new couch is a lot like searching for bigfoot. Impossible to find. Perhaps it’s because we’re being really, really picky about the kind of couch that we want. We want a couch with a chaise lounge on it, nothing too terribly big, no leather and our budget is $500 and under.

We’ve been out shopping all day & came back home with 2 contenders. One is previously rented & will be slightly over budget by the time we cover delivery. It’s also a little on the large side. Like, so large, we’d have to sell all other furniture in the living room except the coffee table. The other one is kind of a strange color (at least according to me…dark blue?) and over budged by $200, but brand new. We also would be able to keep my favorite chair in the living room as opposed to selling it.

We’ve also got to figure out what to do with the old couch. If I had it my way, we’d burn it in the street, but the neighbors might not appreciate that as much as I would.

Happy Monday.


Its like taking a chain letter to a whole new level of chain letterness.

I got tagged to answer some questions by one of my favorite other bloggers, Mooselicker, here on this post. I’ve decided to break all the rules of the initial post & just answer the 11 questions. Cuz that’s what I do. Break rules. Enjoy.

1. When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? What did you think you would become? A meteorologist. When I realized I was bad at both math & science, I gave up on that dream & started pursuing happiness.

2. Who is your biggest celebrity crush? Easy! Rupert Grint.

3. Angels, Bigfoots, or Aliens; which one do you think is most likely to exist? Bigfoot. C’mon I know you guys have seen that show Finding Bigfoot. That shits real.

4. What is something that everybody seems to enjoy that you hate? Adele. Already covered that one.

5. If you opened your front door and I was there, what would you say? What would you really be thinking?
AHHH!! Why is there a stranger at my door!? You’re not the mailman! Because I don’t know what you look like.

6. What is your favorite movie and why? I have lots. Maybe I’ll do a post about them. If I had to pick one, though, it’d be Alice in Wonderland (the newest one). Terrific acting, soundtrack, & wardrobe.

7. There has to be something that you believe you’re the best at, what is it? Finding bargains.

8. Who is the ugliest person you know and why are they so ugly? I ain’t gonna call anyone out by name now, but…

9. Is love unconditional? Depends.

10. Lots of people have addictions. What is yours? Cheesy TV shows. And my hair.

11. What is the nicest compliment you have ever received? What is something that you would like to be complimented more about you? I really appreciate when people compliment my artwork & I would love it if people would compliment it more (Just replace the word “compliment” with “buy”).
