Burning Up The Plastic

Paige is busy reading trying to finish the last book in the Twilight series, so I'm on blog duty again.

The past two days have been taken up primarily by furniture shopping. Yesterday we were able to find a sofa (it's a sleeper so we'll have extra room for you all to come visit ;) ), love seat (matches the sofa), bedroom suite, duvet, and wine rack from Crate and Barrel, a TV (for the living room) and stand from Fry's, and a mattress set from Mancini's Sleep World. Talk about an expensive day...

Today we got up at a decent time and headed over to the townhouse to wait on delivery of our giant washer and dryer, which our landlord kindly purchased and had installed. After that, we headed back out furniture shopping, this time in search of an ottoman or coffee table and an accent chair. We think we've decided on a square leather-topped ottoman from Ashley Furniture (with accompanying end table), but we're not quite sold. We've also spotted a few chairs from Crate and Barrel and Pottery Barn that we like, but we've got to narrow those down as well.

Things are really starting to come together, and by the end of this week we should have a functional, semi-furnished home. Needless to say, we're both really excited to have all of our things from out of storage in addition to all of the new furniture that will be coming.

So, for anybody considering a trip this direction, we'll be ready to accept visitors as soon as next week, so come on out :)
