The Sweetest Thing

We recently went through the process of house hunting, then putting an offer in, and then passing on the house b/c of the ridiculous counter offer. Due to that, we decided to wait another few months/year to pay off some debt (school loans, etc.), and try to make our current living situation look more like a home than a temporary dwelling. So, we started looking for a couch & also decided to get another queen mattress set to make the office into an actual guest bedroom/office. :)

After looking at like a GAZILLION couches (it's something I don't want to have to do for another LONG while), we finally found one at American Signature that we fell in love with. And the great thing is that it was on CLEARANCE b/c of a tiny little tear on the back of the couch. This couch is HUGE, and took a long while to get through the door to our apartment. LOL I think you have to have some sort of expertise in geometry to fit a big couch through a tiny space. But it's in, and we love it!

The best thing though was something Kyle said to me last night after the CRAZY time of getting the couch in. He said to me, "I might not be able to get you a house right now, but I can at least make this place look like a home." I melted and promptly begin to cry, and every time I think about it, I cry out of knowing how much I am blessed to have such a wonderful husband.
