Yesterday was plain AWESOME!!

One of those days that makes this such a great summer :) First of all, we FINALLY got a couch!! So, remember my dream couch? Well, I called and they were dead serious about it taking 6 to 8 weeks to deliver, we went from a sleeping bag on the ground, to lawn chairs and it was not fun!!

Then, I was staring at the dream couch online and notcied the measurement. 57 inches seemed, to me, very small for a couch...Adam and I are not tiny people my friends. Then on Sunday, I was shopping with my sister and mom and we were looking at furniture at Weekend's Only. I measured a real couch and it was almost 90 inches long which started to scare me. Ok, then I measured a cuddler recliner (built for like 2 people) and it was almost the same size as the couch. So, when you see this picture of the dream couch:

That is not just an oversized pillow, that is for real. So, while looking for Nicole at Weekends Only, I found a new dream couch. One that was right there for me to test out, see, measure, AND have the next day! Urban Outfitters was super cool about canceling the order and now I am typing this post from the most beautiful couch ever :)
Besides curtains for the sliding glass door, the Newer, more simpler, more beautiful, more special living room is finished :) I will do a post with lots of pics later today or tomorrow, promise:)
And speaking of Tomorrow...."Toooomorrow, Tomorrow, I love ya...." Annie at The Muny was amazing last night. Annie has always been one of my most favorite movies ever. It was actually the very first movie that I ever saw in a movie theatre, when I was 3 and after that you could never find a picture or home movie with me wearing my Annie locket or singing "Tomorrow!" I also love that I found out Margot is a major lover of Annie as well :) I still have tons of old Annie stuff, I love it. Anyways, the musical was great and I got my picture taken with Annie :)

My mom's season tickets are great seats so we really really enjoyed it. I also got this really cool hat, so now I can really be Annie any time I want :)

After the Muny we went to Ben and Jerry's down at The Loop and ate waffle cones while drove home, windows down, singing at the top of our lungs to the radio....my favorite :)
And I made a very beautiful Whale Inspired painting :)
AND I won the give-away on Ashley's blog!!! I love when she announces things via blog because she has got a serious southern accent :D
