Monday Madness

Well, we had a great weekend and was even more fun because hubby got a bonus and we were able to get a few things we've been wanting to. We went to a few furniture stores, probably about six, as we were looking for a new sofa. Ours was a hand-me-down and is pretty gross at this point with a toddler running around. We were looking for another micro fiber or a leather sofa. I don't really want to sit on leather all the time but, it's very durable!

Turns out, my Mother-in-Law is getting rid of her $2500 leather sofa, so we are going to buy it on the cheap! woot! We went to IKEA and I tell you, you get sucked into that place and the next thing you know, it's 2 hours later. It's amazing all the things you can find there and what great deals you can get on some household things that are a ton more elsewhere.

We ate out, and went shopping, etc. Now that's what I call a fun girl's weekend! Too bad it's Monday. heh. It's grocery shopping and going to Target for the necessities and/or toiletries day. Cleaning, as my house hasn't been cleaned in days and finding time to finish some frames I've been painting up. Coming home and making dinner. It's crazy and hopefully, I can get it all accomplished before my Sister-in-Law and her twins come over tomorrow. I know she won't mind a little mess though, so that is a save right there.

Hope your Monday wasn't too crazy and that you're getting all you need to get done, accomplished.

Awesome deal, Mel!! Remind me to tell you about our furniture and washing machine blessing. We have leather, too, and I LOVE IT. Helps that we were without furniture while we waited for that "just right" piece to come through. :)

I started a new blogger blog and wondered if you could come by to check it out. It's about couponing/$$ saving...there's a deal that expires tomorrow you might want to check out!!!

Thanks! Love ya! Have fun with all of the wee ones tomorrow!

I'm so jealous! I would love a new couch, but that probably isn't going to be happening any time soon. Hope you had fun getting together with the cousins!
