Only One Thing...

Has it ever happened to you when you go shopping for one thing and you end up with more than that item? I'm sure it happened to everyone a couple (or more!) times.

Well, yesterday was Columbus Day so my daughter was home. We wanted to bring her to the zoo but the weather isn't up to that so what better to do when it's rainingthan to shop.

First stop, Lowes. Not really a problem here since my hubby already has some things he wanted. Picked up two wall scones for the bedroom, foam mats for the basement, faucet for the bathroom and some baby-proof stuff. Damage to the checkbook is about $200.

My husband is a huge football fan, he's a New England Patriots follower all his life. He subscribes to DirecTV's NFL package every year so he has access to ALL the games being played. Then he has his recliner, very comfortable. But the problem is, the kids like to sit with him (and sometimes me too)so it gets very tight. We always say that we should get a loveseat recliner so everyone can fit in but we never got around to it.

Then comes the deal breaker, he broke the recliner lever last week. So the recliner is now just a regular comfortable chair. We searched online for adouble recliner and we only found it in the Lazy Boy website. Great, we have astore nearby.

So off we went to the Lazy Boy gallery. We looked around and zeroed in on theloveseat recliner we saw online. Beige leather, looks very good. So we sat on itand of course it's very comfortable. Both seats reclines which is what we want.We talked to the salesman who of course starts his pitch, what he didn't know isthat we already made up our mind to buy it. Then comes my question, how long willyou have this model in stock. Of course no one knows when it will be discontinued.Bad news. Hubby and I talked, maybe we should also get the recliner sofa. Kaching! goesthe eyes of the salesman, I swear I saw some dollar signs there. LOL Oh well,we decided to buy the loveseat AND the sofa. We didn't get the beige set because of my 15 month old son, we know what happens with kids and any kind of pen! LOL We opted for the dark blue color. Oh well, maybe when we replace the sofa and loveseat in the livingroom, I can get my beige leather.
