Serious shopping

Today we decided we had better be ready to party so we picked up two Punch servers at Bed Bath and Beyond. Lisa is a good shopper. I was going to get one and whith shipping it was way too much so she googled it and we got two for less than the price for one. Retirement gift cards paid for it so we were started. Always start with party items first.

Tonight Orson was up for furniture shopping so we got the furniture for the family room downstairs and the guest bedroom. So Victoria will have a place to sleep when they come out in April. First two rooms completed.

Lisa and I had fallen in love with the dresser for the guest room last October but we knew if we waited we could get a great deal on the room at Rooms to go so I have baskets of my my clothes while with her instead of us buying it then. Good choice.

We think we know the comforter for that room so we will will check that out tomorrow and see if we like it as much as we think we do. It will go with the curtains from my bedroom in California I believe so we will see.

The family room is Denim keeping with our red, white, and blue theme. And the electric recliner is what I need since I never can get them to recline or return upright. Oak and wrought iron end tables, coffee table and entertainment center. We just need to check out all the measurements to be sure that is what will fit. The recliner is a perfect fit for me and I can spend many enjoyable hours reading,watching TV or sleeping in it.

It was fun shopping tonight because we had pre-shopped and chosen what we wanted and it was just a mater of going and picking it up. Now I will have a bed to sleep in and a couch to relax in. We already have tables and chairs if I don't find exactly what I want for the dining room and kitchen. so the downstairs will be livable.

We have pre-shopped the Fridge, (shaved ice) washer and dryer also. So as soon as I can get a close of Escrow date we will pin those down. I haven't decided red or white on the washer and dryer any ideas.
