So exciting! We picked out all the big things we need for the house. We spent about five hours at Nebraska Furniture Mart today. I have only been there one other time and I had forgot how big that place is. It is a good thing that I had some idea what I wanted. Going there without a plan would be over-whelming. We choose a sofa that is a 2-piece sectional with a chaise attached (that is the second piece). I wanted a big over-sized chair and AUTOMAN (LOL, this cracks me up! I saw this spelling in a Craig's list ad and I'm still getting a good chuckle from it)--okay, chair and ottoman is what I had in mind. I really love the whole chaise thing, so I got another separate one. (It is the one in the picture here)
We agreed on a white bedroom set. That will look so pretty with the light blue walls I am going to paint. I hope that I have a good memory of the color of the wood in the kitchen. I think we picked out the perfect table. I had my heart set on a table with chairs and a bench on one side and they had it.
They had some cute kids beds. Becca really needs a bed. She just has a frame and mattress, no cute headboard. She decided she wants sort of a garden themed room and I hope we can hook her up with a picket fence headboard. But today we saw this bed she loved. It was a loft bed (not as tall as a bunk bed) with a SLIDE attached to it. Under the bed was just space but there was a curtain that pulled closed. It was a cute bed and very reasonable price, but it was bright red, blue, and yellow. Not very garden like. We'll see if she keeps talking about it.
Very exciting stuff!
