Our New Additions!

This is our new couch! We bough it along with a matching loveseat for Christnikah. The ottoman isnt ours, Corey didn't like it and it wasn't worth the extra money. (This picture is in the store, not at our place.) I was very sad to get rid of our old couch, but it was time. It was an old 70's couch, which had a little extra sentimental value to it, since my dad reupholstered it for me before we moved to Chicago. Luckily it went to a good new home, the home of Tyler and Garrett. Although, I'm a little worried of what these bachelors will do to it. I just tell myself that the couch went off to college, to live in a Frat House where it will do a lot of partying.
Anyways, the new couch(es) are 10 inches deeper than the old one, so Corey and I can both comfortably lay on them and since there are 2 of them, we don't have to both be on the same couch together all the time. The old couch was red, whereas this one is a light camel with orange and brown cushions/pillows, and they look great in our place. I didn't have to redecorate anything, they're a perfect fit. Besides the chair we bought last year, this is the first major new furniture purchase I've ever made. However, because we live in a small place, we had to put the chair in the sunroom because there wasn't any extra space in the living room. Now we have a comfortable place for Pete, Josh or Dan to sleep on when they're in town.

I was going to go back and edit out the " 10 inches deeper" comment. I was planning to fix it by saying, "10 inches wider" but that's really not much better.

Whoohoo! A new place to sleep! I will have to plan a return to Wind-tunnel town soon so I can be the first to sleep on it.
