A productive weekend

Well, I hope everyone had a good Halloween with more treats than tricks. We didn't have nearly as many trick-or-treaters Friday night as I was expecting, but we still had a solid hour of ding-dongs (the sound of our doorbell, not the pastry or costume or...get your minds out of the gutter!).

On Saturday, we took a load of stuff to the new house, got some Jersey Mike's for lunch, then headed back to the old-house-we-have-yet-to-move-out-of where I bathed both dogs and planted some pansies in planters for the new house. That evening, the McHusband and I went to Home Comfort in Cary and found the couch and loveseat we want but aren't getting:

Yesterday, we saw our old neighbors' new house then took another load of stuff to our new house, then we headed out to Capital Boulevard to check out more furniture stores. We decided on our second-favorite couch and loveseat:

The reason we decided to go with our second-favorite choice is that we could get a really good deal, one that we would've been stupid to pass up especially because we have so many plans for the house and plans, as we all know, cost money.

Unfortunately, we'll have to wait a minimum of four weeks for the new furniture, but it'll probably be closer to Christmas before they get delivered. I guess I know what Santa'll have on his sled for us this year.
