Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

weekend recap

Hello Bloggies!!!! I hope you had a splendorous weekend!!!!

Friday was a good day because the weather was amazing. I felt like I had an itch even preparation h couldn't soothe to be outside frolicking in meadow wearing leaderhosein (I hope I painted a swell picture of just how pain full it was for me to be inside all day). Good weather always brings on the need for grill out food. So I called hubs on the cellular and declared he was grilling hot dogs, brats and burgers.... needless to say he obliged.

I got to spend the evening with my Bestie. It was good to chat even if it couldn't be full on girl talk because hubs was there. I will say though we didn't spare him, talking about cervical mucus pretty much set him over the edge. It was a good night.

Saturday was the big day. We got our new sofa! I am sorry that this sofa is such a big deal but it our first piece of real furniture, and by real I mean not a hammy down. It is pretty exciting.

The morning started by getting our old stuff out of our house. All of Hubs' work buddies were working and so it was hubs, my mom and myself. Now, hubs is a manly man, my mom is an ox (seriously, never tell her she can't move something. ever. ) and then there was me. Wimpy little old me we no upper body strength. For reals. I fear for my children, I just hope I am on a soft surface when I inevitably drop them. Where was I? Oh yeah.

Here is our old girl. She really was an awesome couch. She had no idea what was coming to her. I mean she had been creaking with agony so she really did need to be put out of her misery (yes I am referring to our old couch like it has feelings. I watched the brave little toaster when I was little and it ruined me for life) and we did in a very gruesome way. We couldn't get her wide ass out of our back door so demolition took place... aka hubs with a hammer.


More carnage.... tear.
After we finally got our very dead sofa to the dumpster it was time to clean up and go get our new addition. I vacuumed up the evidence of the brutality that had taken place, did you know that a vacuum doesn't like wood shards? Well, I can tell you it doesn't and I can also tell you, with an extreme certainty that I broke our vacuum. I mean its main purpose is to suck up crud and it doesn't anymore.
We dropped of the chair and ottoman to my moms house and I got dropped off at the house so I could move the rest of out living room furniture to a central location so that it wasn't in the way. Did I mention that is was cold and rainy on Saturday? Did I also mention that it only took me 10 minutes to move the other furniture around and for the rest of the time my dog and I ran around the big empty room? I didn't mention that? well, if you happen to see my Hubs or my mom don't mention it to them either.
after 2 trips to the furniture store, a few curse words and some rearranging we got it in.

That's right. This mammoth is to big for one picture.
The pillows and the quilt totally happened on accident. We got them as wedding gifts (they are actually a bedding set for our future guest room, but when I got it I was so excited I put on our bed when we moved in together.) and they totally weren't hubs in taste. To quote him correctly he said "it looks like we live in a barn." I told him he was being way to dramatic but he won in the end and we got a different bedding set and this was stashed in the linen closet. We planned on getting red throw pillows when we went to the store but my genius of a mom reminded me of these not in use pillows. I mean seriously she she get a noble price or something. Hubs went out to his truck so I ran (falling up) the stairs and my mom and I had this down before he got back in.
He gave me a look of I really don't like this.
Then my eyes were all like but I do
Then his eyes said I can tell I am not going to win this
Then my eyes said in a non condescending way I am happy you came to that conclusion on your own.
I realized we had been silent for about 32 seconds and my mom was looking at us weird, so I asked him aloud if he liked it and he agreed. I have a witness.


  1. I love the new addition! And the red brightens it up, don't let Hubs talk you out of them!

  2. This post made me laugh out loud in my office!! I love the new couch - and I have those same unspoken conversations with my hubby-to-be...except he still doesn't usually agree!!

  3. Girly, You need to read back through this and see all of your spelling. :) Oh the things we made you Hub talk with us about on Friday!
