Google had their annual Christmas Party this past Friday Night. It also happened to be my birthday. It was one of the best birthdays I have ever had.
ok- it begins with a trip to Charlotte (1.5 hours away) where we get put up in a hotel less than a block from the restaurant.
An awesome friend (hi Kendra) hooks us up with a babysitter who came to our hotel room for us so we were able to actually go and stay overnight. Its one of the drawbacks to a nursing baby who doesnt take a bottle. It turned out great and I was able to feed her and put her to bed before we left. Zeke had a blast with the babysitter as well and they both slept in past 8am!
Dave and I have been talking about getting some new furniture for a long time but not really seriously.
My parents were here and looking for some coffee tables etc. so I went with them and though about going and looking for ourselves, I mentioned it to Dave and put the bug in his ear. I wanted to just go look to see what was out there.
Saturday we went to a couple stores (we do live in the furniture capital of the US in NC) and ended up at a Broyhill outlet.
We found Dave his man chair he wanted and a lovely red sofa couch and an arm chair.
and bought them
excuse the mess- they called to say they were bringing the new stuff in 10 - 15 min!! our old stuff was recliners in the couch and both chairs (im standing by one)
This was the furniture we bought when we got married.
