movie sofa

Brandon and I bought ourselves an early Christmas gift. Notice anything different?

Yep! Say hello to our new CB2 Movie Sofa in Pool blue. Isn't she lovely? We had been eying this sofa for well over a year and kept saying to ourselves, "Wow, maybe one day." We finally decided to pull the trigger when Brandon went to CB2 one day (yeah, I can't believe he went without me either...) and noticed that the sofa was on sale. Translation - the sofa in the color we wanted was being discontinued.

I also sprinkled in some Glimma tea light holders.

Everyone knows I'm all about cheap, fresh flowers, so there were clusters of daisies all around courtesy of Kroger's manager's special.

15 daisies for 5 dollars... don't mind if I do!

Side note, can you believe that we had the flowers in our coffee table for 2 weeks prior to Thanksgiving? Yeah, me neit…
