I could blog about all of that, or I could blog about my new Goodwill couch.
Couch you say? Deal.
If you have been around this blog for a while you know about my couch issues. I have been on the search for years for THE COUCH for years. Blogging about my couch issues could have been a blog all it's own. But despite my search I could never quite find the right one for the right price at the right time. And so for a while now my couch craving laid dormant.
And then this summer my in laws bought us a ginormous television for our birthdays. And then we decided not to sell our house. And suddenly my passionate search for the perfect, cottagey, ultra comfy and adorable couch was re-ignited. It seemed to make sense that if we were going to have this huge television, it would be nice to have a comfy, loungey place to watch it all together. So for a month or more I have been trawling Craigslist till my eyes crossed. I have been visiting Ikea.com daily wondering if I will ever get Sweet Man there with a truck large enough to bring back a sofa. But honestly I didn't hold out much hope that I would find the right couch for the right price in the right location anytime soon.
And then I stumbled upon this buttery concoction, quite by accident, at a Goodwill store this weekend. The price? $60. I bought it on the spot. People, that is just crazy talk. Of course I smelled it first. And then I sat, laid and plunked down it several time, giving it the boy test. I texted Sweet Man a picture, then
Now we all want to be in the living room all the time. There is room for the four us to be napping and studying and blogging all at the same time. Or snuggling (which is a favorite family past time at Greer Casa) and movie watching. And even though I will probably have a slipcover made for it way on down the road (because slipcovers can go in the washing machine) for now, this mellow yellow herringbone blends right in with our shabby schoolhouse vibe.
So thank you family who donated your sofa to Goodwill. We hope you love your new sofa as much as we love your old one!
