So today was day 2 of 3 for my big household deliveries ! I have so many people calling me and scheduling when to come over that my phone calendar is always going off with reminders!
First thing this morning was the mattresses! YAY!!! The queen size mattress went straight to the guest room which I am done shopping for for a while. Except sheets. I thought the sheets I had in texas were for a Queen but they DO NOT fit the mattress =( boo. So I will be checking out marshalls/ross/walmart in the next couple weeks for sheets. really just as long as I have them before someone comes to visit. The dressers fit nicely in the room and I cannot wait for everything to settle into place so I can get to fixing them up. Still havent decided what Im doing, I just really fell in love with this bedroom set for some reason and it was a great deal.
Next came the Fridge! yay! It is a standard sized fridge so it sticks out past the counters a bit. Honestly, if someone were, um, exceptionally large…they might not fit in between the fridge and my island. But when I say that, I mean you would need to be like three times my size. Still, I had looked at smaller “counter depth” or whatever they call it fridges and obviously they were smaller and they cost MORE but basically…I need my food storage. Lets be real.
Then a quick pop back to the place I have been staying for a Skype date.
Then the dryer man came. Told me the igniter had cracked which is why the dryer wasnt working so he sent away for a new piece.
Then wait…wait..wait… and FINALLY [really they were within the window they said they would be] My couch and bedroom set arrived. Except the store did not tell the delivery men that they would be hauling my epic bedroom set with marble topping to the second floor of the house. oh god, i dont think I have ever felt so bad. It took them 2 hours to get my bedroom set put together and bring in the couch. The couch took maybe 15 minutes. I have to give it to them though, they didnt hit the walls or mess anything up. But HOLY CRAP did we come close. The marble on the top of the pillars is literally half an inch or less from the ceiling. And they had to move the bed inch by inch to make sure that it wouldnt hit the ceiling fan. The ceiling fan that i picked out because it is the absolute closest to the ceiling that they had. Thank god because any other ceiling fan would not have worked.
I tipped the guys [because my friend pretty much told me to, and in all honesty, they worked really damn hard] and i gave them some dark chocolate hershey kisses for the road..because there isnt much in my kitchen unless they wanted green beans or oatmeal lol
Im really happy with how the bedroom set it, now I just need a bedspread and other details but all of that can wait for a bit. I have an awesome picture back in florida that I am hoping to get soon because I pretty much based my color scheme around that picture and it is amazing.
Im also very happy with the couch. The couch came with an ottoman that i didnt really want/need but they wouldnt sell it for less if i didnt take the ottoman so i got it. Now my problem is that yes, it does look good, but i based my entire plan for my living room off of the Living room table that I made…and now i dont know if i should use it and move the ottoman to the loft or if i should put the table in the loft…thoughts?
Current Living Room as is =) Still need a table for the Blu-ray player and HDDVR for Direct TV but for now I may just have to put that on the ottoman or table…
^ The living room table I made.
And in case you think I am blogging from home, you would be wrong. Hopefully one week from today I will have my internet and TV…and also my Dog!! Dad is shipping Lola out next wednesday so I will have a dog to add to the mix. — it costs more to ship the dog one way than it does round trip for me so we must seriously love this dog…or Dad just reallllly wants to get rid of her.
But now Im just hanging out at my previous residence, watching food network and waiting for a brief skype date.
