I've Gone Furniture Shoppin'!

This about says it all!!
I saw this an thought it was too cute!
We have been doin' some furniture shoppin'. We moved into our new house last June and we still haven't found an entertainment center that we both like for our living room. I pretty much have the den area done, we spend 90% of our time in there anyway. But our living room has only the basics. We have a complete blank long wall, that has just been waiting for and entertainment center.

Of course, Hubby and I both have to agree on it, since it is a big purchase. We have looked and looked and looked and.....well you get the idea. We find one that I like, or he likes, or one we can't afford. Hubby refuses to use credit, (which is a good thing) So we haven't found THE ONE that fits all 3 requirements.

But finally we found one. It is beautiful. We haven't got it delivered yet, but I do have a picture of it. Hopefully soon, I am going to get that digital camera... anyhoo, that's another story entirely...:)

Here's the entertainment center. It's a lovely dark coffee color for the wood. It matches our furniture perfect. Now we have to get a TV to go in it. Ugghhhh... It's never ending.

I also have a little hallway area by my kitchen, that I think this Bombay chest will be perfect in. I need something to go there, because I want to store table linens and party platters, etc. in it. It is from the same set as the entertainment center.

I hope everyone is having a great evening! Hubs and I are watching the Cubs. Our favorite pitcher, Zambrano, got suspended last night. He has a slight temper. Oh well...the boys of summer are cranking up.

Tomorrow my Mama is having a breast biopsy. Please pray for her as she goes through this time.

In Christ,

My southern friend,

The furniture, simple breath taking. I just love coming over here, the blue flowers always bring a smile to my day.

Besitos (little kisses in Spanish),

I will pray for your mama, I know what that is like because my mother has had probably a dozen breast biopsies, she even had to have a lumpectomy when she was pregnant with lil sis. Also, I love the bombay chest!

Oh my gosh...we had something VERY similar to that years ago! When we moved to Hawaii, there was no way we were going to bring it. It was beautiful and held sooooo much!!

Enjoy your new piece!
