WE'RE COUCH OWNERS!!!!!!

I just can't even. You guys, we threw our love seats over the balcony of our second story apartment patio this weekend. I'm not even kidding!

Caleb and I put on our big kid pants this weekend and finally made our first BIG purchase together. A real couch, and a loveseat (theatre style)! We are in love. It may sound silly, but this will make our awesome marriage even more awesome. Actually getting to SIT by each other during a movie date night in? Whaaat!?

I don't talk about it much, but everything in our apartment is someone else's. Aside from shower gifts, nearly everything in our apartment was handed down to us. Which don't get me wrong, it was a huge blessing...but it didn't make it feel like OUR home. So, we decided it was time to get rid of the two LOVE SEATS...yes, you read that right... and buy a new furniture set for our living room.




I know they are a little blurry...but he was so dang tired, and took pictures with me anyway so I didn't want to ask him to do it again. Besides, these were actual moments. I set my camera (or so I thought) for one picture, and it snapped like 12 in a row.

Back to my weekend. It was amazing. Guys, seriously. Caleb had a guys night Friday so I hit the gym with a hard run and then spoiled myself to some "me-time" at home...complete with my first face-time session with my first blog friend, miss Ashley, and her more than adorable little boys. She will hate me for posting this picture, but miss thing just can't take a bad shot...so there. Regardless, Ashley feels like she's been a friend for ever. She's so sweet and selfless, and I cannot wait to meet her!


Saturday, we had a consultation with a bride at 9AM, then the rest of the day was spontaneous (hence...buying those couches!). It truly was the greatest weekend ever. Aside from the Bengals game, it was great. I'll talk about more in other posts. I have so many things to elaborate on!

Happy Tuesday!

  7. Furniture is definitely a big purchase, and it looks pretty! Most of our stuff will be handed down in the beginning too, there is nothing wrong with that!

  15. I could never hate you…but seriously I am looking like a freak in that picture. Haha!! The boys look so cute, though. It really does feel like we've been friends for forever…I love that.

    Your new couch is incredible!!! We seriously, SERIOUSLY need a new one. Ours has run it's course. I know the feeling of having everything in your home belong to someone else. It really is nice to have your own thing..just between the 2 of you.

    Love you!!!

  16. YAY for new couch + loveseat!! I cannot wait to buy a couch! Lol Doug & I may only live in my parents basement, but it's still kind of our apartment & that is definitely a big ticket item for making it your own space. We are currently couchless (we finally got rid of the one we had--which was my families old one from when I was a KID-) And we are so ready for a couch. Nothing special, but comfy, nice looking and NEW is key!
    Congrats!♥
