Making a House a Home
Well now that we finally have a house it was time to buy some "real" furniture. The only item Ryan and I had purchased for our home since being married over three years ago was a mattress. Three apartments in three years just made it seem silly to put any money into furniture we would have to keep moving around.
We were lucky to have the help of a real life designer, Karen, Ryan's mom came down with Richard to help us shop several times in August. Even with the help there were lots of arguements between Ryan and I but we finally were able to make decisions and orders and everything is here now.
Hopefully we will start to get some visitors now. We can't afford to go anywhere because we spent all our money on furniture! Indiana is really pretty in the fall...
Anyways luckily we knew going into the furniture stores that we would have children soon, real soon. We don't have any sharp corners to cover and we got the extra warranty on the sofa fabric. Baby spit up beware!
The next stop will be the nursery and then we are done. Ryan has already painted the room, the color is called aloe vera. Can't wait to start decorating! Any good advice on where to get baby furniture will be appreciated!
