New Couch

This is an old pic (I believe it is from 2007) of Jerry and Scooter chillin' on the red couch in our office. Jerry and I bought the couch about 5 years ago, but it didn't hold up well. It faded quickly, and it didn't fare well against the Scooter-factor. So, because we have also recently turned our guest bedroom into Norah's room, we decided to get a new couch for the office, specifically, one that has a sleeper in it to accomodate the guests who we expect to have after Norah is born. We bought the couch last weekend, but Jerry didn't get to pick it up until yesterday. So, here it is:
It's microfiber, so we're hoping the more durable fabric will hold up better against the couch's primary occupant, the dog:
Plus, with the queen sized pull out, it should work well for whoever comes to visit us (and since it's in the office, they can still close the doors in there and have some privacy, so it's not quite as bad as sleeping in the living room).

The other decorative objects that arrived yesterday were some shelves for Norah's room that we'd ordered, so Jerry hung them last night, and they look good over her crib.
Of course, we have very little to put on them at this point, but I'm sure that they'll fill up quickly.

In non-decorative news, I did get out for a short run last night, but it started to rain on me, so by the time I got home, I was pretty soaked. I am pretty done with all this rain; I think we've had enough!

It has rained on my running 4 days in a row! I'm really hoping that trend will come to an end at the half tomorrow.

The couch looks great, and I like those shelves too!

The new couch looks great! We have a microfiber couch, and LOVE it. It is such a breeze to clean, and so far we've tested that out with various pet bodily functions (drool, urine and cat puke to be specific).

Love your new couch! I desperately need a new one, hopefully after the wedding.

I like the new couch. It looks really nice. Thanks for watching Miller yesterday while Ryan helped retrieve it.

I didn't get a chance to say congrats on yesterday's post. Good job on getting published! Let us know when it's out so we can read it :)

The new couch looks great and it appears Scooter approves of the new digs as well. It looks pretty nice with the blue walls.

P.S. I got your baby gift here. I meant to send it with Meagan before we left last week but forgot. I will try to remember to bring it on Monday. Have a great night!

We've had a week of rain, cold and wind.

We bought a microfiber couch 5 years ago, and it's held up great.
