We got a new couch today…woohoo! Our other couch was something we got from friends, and it was really comfy but not quite the slim modern style I like. It also was not enough seating when people came over, so they would end up sitting on the floor or chairs that weren’t comfy. Anyways when I started work last week I noticed this awesome sectional we carried on clearance for $550! So I made the decision that with the little bit of money we could make selling our current couch and the extra money Im getting for the Wedding Planning Im doing that it was the perfect purchase! We went today and picked it up, got it home and assembled it in no time! Of course we still have our other couch sitting in the entry way, but I LOVE the new couch! Mr. Gaunt and I can both lay on it and watch a movie (which we did tonight – I Love You Man) and although its a bit of a challenge to work around a sectional, I think its going to be perfect!
In other news I hit up Old Navy today and tried on some pants they had on sale for $19, and yah know what I think Im almost the exact size I was in High School! Yay! I bought these cute grey pants that I love and I almost need to go down ANOTHER size, but I think these will fit for another 15-20 lbs (which is about as much as I can ask for in pants). A friend of mine mentioned shopping second hand to save money on pants, I totally agree with this and I have bought tons of used shirts (although even when I buy new shirts I get the $2.99 ones cause I’m cheap) and cardigans, but Im not a size 10 and the pants in my size are often gross dated tapered pants. I just have never been able to find pants that really fit used, so I will continue to look but I just cant rely on used pants. But I felt amazing about myself all day! I felt cute and stylish and really just happy at how far Ive come. Im so close to entering new territory in my weight loss, a size and weight that I have never been and Im just so excited! You know you have good days and bad days and some times you need to toot your own horn and be happy with yourself and know things can only get better.
