I have been really busy since I have been home. I bought a crib and a couch!! Crazy, I know!! I bought the crib off of Ramstein Yardsales (one of my top 5 favorite websites) and I got it for really cheap! My original plan was to buy a new crib at the BX and have it shipped here but it would take 3-6 months for it to come in so I said “forget that!!”. I really wanted a white crib and knew it would be hard to find unless I got a German crib, which I did NOT want!! I searched high and low on Ramstein Yardsales and came across an off white Pottery Barn crib! I absolutely LOVE it!!! I think it will go really well with the baby’s bedding.
I haven’t set it up yet but I am waiting for Bryce to get home so he can set it up. Only a couple of more days!!!! Yay!!!
I also bought a leather couch. The BX has this thing where they set up a tent and sell furniture that isn’t able to sell in the store. Its furniture that has small scratches and tears or display items. I could not find anything wrong with this leather couch and didn’t understand why it was so cheap. I asked the sales clerk and she said that there was a small tear on the back of the couch at the very bottom. Sure enough, there was a small tear but I didn’t even notice it the first time I looked!!
I was really hesitant on buying the couch because I hadn’t talked to Bryce and I never make purchases like this without him. I knew I wouldn’t be able to talk to Bryce until really late that evening and I was so scared that the couch would sell. A friend of mine that was with me talked me into it and I bought it. I was really worried what Bryce would think about the couch and me buying it! I knew he would like it because it is pretty masculine. He knew I had been wanting a new couch for a long time so it shouldn’t be that big of a surprise to him, right?!
I talked to him later that evening and showed him pictures of the couch and guess what….he LOVED it!!!! I can’t wait for him to see it in person now!! Here is some pictures of the couch and rearranged living room…
I absolutely LOVE our new couch and it is so comfortable too!!
Today I have been getting the house all ready for Bryce to come home! I did laundry, cleaned out the shelves in the babies room, and cleaned! I’m not completely done but hopefully I can finish up tomorrow!
