New furniture!

Rod and I have been married 6 1/2 years and our furniture is all either hand-me-downs or something we bought used.
The couch we've had for the past 3 years was purchased out of someone's front yard for $20. It served us well, but it was REALLY time to move on. Here is a small peek at our old couch. Our cats tore it up and one day a piece of metal sticking out the side of it cut Rod's finger. He immediately went out to the shed, picked up the first piece of wood he found, then came back in and nailed it over the metal piece on the couch. Classy, huh?

We used to have our computer desk in the livingroom. Thankfully we recently purchased a laptop so we don't need this big desk taking up room in our livingroom anymore. We decided to keep the desktop computer and hook it up to the new TV. It's pretty awesome having a 42" computer monitor!

Because the new couch is green and the livingroom color doesn't quite match, we decided to do one tan accent wall where the couch is sitting. Here is that wall once it was painted. The color is Cracker Bitz from Olympic.

Once the furniture was delivered, I put James on it to see what he thought. I think he liked it! Although, a little later that afternoon he was taking a nap on the couch and peed through his outfit onto it. He has only ever leaked out of one diaper in the past.

The new dark brown recliner makes a great portrait background...I'll have to remember that!
Here is a shot of the sectional up against the newly painted wall.
Rod's pride and joy! A 42" Toshiba Regza TV. He got it off Ebay new for 1/3 of the retail price.

The recliner is so cozy and relaxing.

James loves books. I've found that the corner of the sectional offers a convenient way for him to enjoy his books. I can tuck this long accordian book into the spaces between the sections and it entertains him for quite a while.

The little man just discovered his tongue. He really thinks he is hot stuff when he sits in the cocrner of the sectional.

Thanks for looking at my pictures!

We hook the computer (in our case, a laptop) up to the big screen tv too. It's great to watch tv and movies online. In some cases, depending on your internet connection, you can actually get a better picture than you can on your HD cable!!! We watched a trailer for Toy Story 3 the other day that was 1080p and I was just in awe of the picture on our screen.

Nice looking stuff!

I love James in that last picture! hehehe

Oooh, yes, Don is a big fan of our 42" we got last year. I believe he hooked up our laptop that night! It's fun, especially since we have Netflix and can do a lot of the Instant Viewing or whatever it's called!

Hopefully the cats will be nice to the new stuff!
