Saturday was our last day in the apartment in JC. We handed over our keys and talked to our landlords longer then we ever have in the four years we've lived there. That went as well as it could have gone. I'm just glad we're out of there.
We also headed to the Windy City. Well not really Chicago, but Schaumburg. Hey, that's where Ikea is! We went down with some friends and their kids, which was fun. We didn't get any furniture, but we looked at a few entertainment centers and decided on a finish. We also picked up the taller legs for the bed (so we can have storage underneath) and a new duvet cover, YAY! As well as some kitchen crap and all our beautiful stainless steal bathroom accessories. And then I got my Chicago style pizza before we headed home. Awesome.

But anyway, the sales person that helped us was super nice. Which is the main reason I don't normally like the furniture store, they can be so pushy. Luckily she was super friendly and actually listed to what we were looking for. She showed us a few couches that would work with our room and we narrowed it down to two.
This couch was the smaller of the two. And by smaller, I mean small for a sectional. And that's what we're looking for a nice comfy sectional that will be inviting to our friends and family when they come over. I love our

We have pretty much decided on couch #2. This is the one I picked out online and I loved it just as much in person. It was nice, even if it was a bit larger then I wanted. But the furniture store woman told me an average walkway is 3 feet and with this couch we'll have more then 3 feet, so I guess it will fit fine. We keep going back and forth if we should get the ottoman. It's not included and it's a bit pricey, but it would be nice to have one. We'll have to decide soon, the sale is over this Wednesday.
The other plus of the second couch is that it's in stock and not a special order like the first one. That's awesome because then I don't have to wait a month or two to get a couch upstairs. WooHoo. I'll let you all know which one made the final cut (hint: it's gonna be the second one).
