New couch!!!

So for the past little while, Matt and I have been discussing the seating options in our house. With a new baby coming, we wanted somewhere comfortable for me to sit with the baby in the middle of the night or during the day or whatever. There's no way a rocker/glider would fit into the baby's room, and the only way we'd fit one in the front room is if our couch was smaller. That got us to thinking that perhaps we could just get a new couch, and that would solve our seating problem altogether - we'd have more room in the front room, it would be a lot prettier and more comfortable, and we wouldn't have to get a glider. We've been looking around at couches, and everything that we liked cost much more than we wanted to pay. But today on Craigslist (because I'm kind of a Craigslist stalker), I found a great deal for a brand new microfiber loveseat. I went and checked it out with Matt's dad while Matt was in class, and decided to buy it. We'll pick it up tomorrow night, and we'll have a pretty, brand new loveseat for our front room. I'm so excited!!! (of course, that leaves the problem of what to do with our old couch... perhaps that will go on Craigslist. Or maybe we'll just take it to the dump.) I'll put up pictures of our new couch/living room setup once we get the couch inside.

How exciting! I think you need to take before and after pictures so we can all see the difference, huh?! :)
