New Couch!

When Drew and I got married, we were very fortunate in that we didn't have to buy any furniture for our home. (With the exception of a set of end tables for our living room, which we bought from my cousin for $75) We either had everything all ready, or had it given to us. In about March of this year, we decided we were ready for a new couch. We started looking around for several weekends, and we finally picked out a cream colored sectional at Mathis Brothers. We were all ready to make this big first purchase, and they told us that couch was on backorder for like 12 weeks! We decided not to order it since it was such a long wait (which turned out to be a blessing because we needed that money later) Now that we have our finances a little more in order, we decided to look at couches again. We found one at the first store we went to, and bought our new couch!

This is just a stock photo, but it is our couch. I wasn't for sure I would be happy with a sectional, but it was our compromise. But once we got it home and all set up, I love it! We also got the ottoman, which is a little big for our living room, but we figure we will have the couch longer than we will have the house, so we are gonna keep it.

In other news, I got a ticket about 2 weeks ago for running a red light in Sapulpa. Actually, the light turned red while I was going through it, but whatev. I almost choked when I saw the fine- $244! The cop advised me to go to court, so I did this morning. The judge dismissed the ticket because of my stellar driving record and I only had to pay a $30 court fee. What a relief!

Much more fun news- Drew and I are going to Vegas next week! We fly out Tuesday morning with Drew's mom, her husband, his two sons and Drew's little brother (who turns 21 this Saturday- Uh Oh!) and fly home next Saturday. I'm looking forward to a good time and will hopefully have fun pics when I get back.

Lastly, big changes are happening tonight, but I want it to be a surprise. I'll try to take a pic and post tomorrow!
