Hey everyone! Yes, I'm back after being MIA for over a month...maybe "once-a-month blogging" is my new normal. Who knows!
You might be wondering from the title of this post, if we are moving. NO, we are definitely not moving! So what's going on?
It was a sofa delivery! Not exactly the normal way to receive a new sofa....well, not normal unless your sofa is coming from IKEA! Box after box came through our front door....a total of 7 large and 3 small ones. We are now the happy owners of the EKTORP Sectional in Lofallet Beige!
The instructions were quite good, and everything was well labeled. It kind of goes together
like a puzzle.
Even ironing the slipcover was not bad...this fabric is so nice and the wrinkles just melted away.
It only took about two hours, start to finish, to put this sofa together!
The Man and I are both so happy with this color. It took some effort on my part to convince The Man that this was not too light, but now he is as happy as I am. Light is good, but white would have looked terrible in here.
We also really like that we can buy another slipcover in a different color, should we
want to do so. Oh, the slipcover is washable, too!
We also purchased two of these EKTORP ottomans. I put glides under the feet of both, so they can be moved around very easily....great storage inside, too!
This room had been very awkward for furniture arranging until we decided on this sectional sofa.
We are so HAPPY!
Even though we are several hours from the Pacific Ocean, I still like to add some beach
elements to my Summer decor.
This is pretty much all I am doing for July 4th this year.
I'm actually quite pleased with this mantel arrangement and will probably leave it up for
most of July!
Complete change of topic here, but I promised several months ago to let you know whether I like this foundation or not. The answer is YES! I wanted to give it a really good try before I said anything. It has felt great on my face during cool-dry, hot-dry, and very hot-dry weather....we will have to wait and see how it holds up during our Monsoon season! It's available at ULTA for $38 here in AZ, but I just recently bought a backup using a 20% coupon...YAY!
Now, just for the "cute factor." Miss Abby had a urinary tract infection recently and was on an antibiotic for two weeks, and this is what we had to do to give her medicine. Yes, a kitty burrito! The Man would wrap her up and hold her while I squirted in the meds; and then he would just hold her like this for awhile....I think she actually liked this part, too! Good news, she is all well now!
Thanks so much for stopping by and for not giving up on me. No promises that I'll be posting often, but posting when I have something to share. Hope everyone is having a great Summer. Can you believe this year is half over? Where does the time go? Don't waste it!
I hope to be joining some of these lovely ladies this week:
