The things I’ll do for love

August 31, 2010

The Man has been exceedingly patient with me and the arrangement of our new household – so far. We desperately need another sofa and when he suggested we just look on Craigs List for a freebie (because guests were coming over that night) – I gave him such a stink-eye.  Noooooo – picking out a sofa is NOT. THAT. EASY.

Now that I am currently obsessed with bright green, my options are instantly limited. But I am willing to sacrifice that for another gray and bring it in the form of accessories.  (Look at me, I’m being flexible pretending to be flexible!)

But the poor guy… he made ONE request of the new sofa. One. Dual recliners. Ok… I am not entirely opposed to the idea. Who wouldn’t want to recline/snuggle up to their favorite snuggly person whilst watching the tube??

The problem is that they all look like this:

I think I just threw up in my mouth a litte. Admit it… you did, too.

So now it is my mission to find a clean-lined, modern looking dual reclining sofa that doesn’t look like a piece of 1980’s frathouse crap.  There must be nothing overstuffed, oversized, or specifically fatass-couchpotato comfort accessorized about it.

Wish me luck.



  1. Don’t forget to ditch the bimbette!

  2. What’s wrong with the one in the picture? That looks really comfy!

  3. @Mom – totally!

    @Brad – maybe… if you need a place to sit out “the spins” after doing a keg stand. or if you have a mini-fridge parked next to it. *rolls eyes*

  4. Please don’t show me any more pics that might induce nausea. 😉

    I know you can do it, I KNOW it. You have spun magic before miss, just be patient as you swirl that hand in the hat.

  5. Yeah I think I up-chucked a lil bit too…
