Sitting pretty!


My new sofa from Ikea!!!
Our Christmas present from my in-laws and ourselves!

I love it!  We made the drive out to Ikea yesterday to pick it up (two hours each way!).  Kyran was fascinated that an entire sofa could fit into a box.

It was easy to put together and is so comfy!  We're staying home all day today and enjoying it!

It's a gloomy, grey day...perfect day for relaxing with some coffee and doing nothing:)

By the way, where did you have to go to get to IKEA? Tampa? I had never been in IKEA until my trip to Florida 2 years ago. My friend and I went to the one in Orlando...spent about 3 hours wandering around. Such a fun place!

Looks wonderful and I can tell you that you will love it! We have had ours for five years now and they have been through alot with four teens and their friends. We have had to buy new slipcovers once but other than that they are still in wonderful comfy shape.

It's gorgeous, Victoria! I love the look of it. I'd like to get a slipcovered sofa too! Everything looks so nice in your nest!

I love IKEA, we have one not too far from here. I may go there in the coming weeks. I love the white cotton with red stripe tea towels that they sell.

Your couch is beautiful! And well worth the drive, too! I've always loved the slip covered look. If only I could convince my hubby:) Have a great weekend!
