An Empty Room

For those who know us personally, you also know that we own the biggest and the brownest (is that a word?) couch known to man.  It our old home, we had a great room that spanned from the front of the house to the back of the house and this couch was perfect.  It was also perfect for Super Bowl parties where everyone was guaranteed to have a comfortable spot to watch the game.

Here is a picture of big brown in all it's glory

Fast forward a couple of years and we end up moving to a historical home where there are no great rooms and everything is kind of broken up and chunky. A feature that we actually love but did not work out well for our big brown couch.

We actually ended up living with the big couch for a while mainly because we have little kids and we didn't want to buy new furniture just to have them end up ruining it.  However, we could not live with it any more and decided that we needed to go ahead and do some redecorating.

After the holidays, The Husband and I went on quite a "living room furniture" shopping spree and are so excited about our purchases.   We ended up buying two couches to replace the large sectional as well as some accent furniture.  We were told that the couches would not be in for two weeks but there was the possibility they would come in earlier.

In a panic that we would be stuck with our new couches and big-brown, I took the leap and listed big-brown on Craig's list.  Fast forward three days and this is what our living room looks like...

Anybody want to come over and watch some play-off games?


  1. Is your house haunted? All your photos are filled with orbs!! I love your house tho! :)

    1. Umm, I never thought of it that way. I think that the orbs are from scratches on the lens of my camera but I do have to say that I am a little freaked out now! Glad you like the house.
