Tonight I am taking Asher to look at the couch at Macy's and I have my fingers crossed that he will like it but I ask...what happens if he doesn't?
We don't have drastically different taste but he will always sacrifice style for comfort. Not that the couch isn't comfortable but when faced with a sleek couch and some cushy, fluffy, dual recliner tv-watching couch, he might put up a bit of a fuss. I am thinking, it might be okay to ignore him in this case.

Here are a few things that started to make it clear that a lifestyle change was in order:
I joked about getting the Pizza Hut deal of 2 pizzas, cheese sticks and chocolate sticks. Then, on Valentine's Day, we actually ordered it. Shame, shame.
Asher brings me home a new bread pudding flavor every day he works at the market. We split it (now) but I am sure these are terribly bad for you. I looked up a recipe and it contains massive amounts of cream and butter. Not to mention chocolate.
Daily I set in my mind like, "Today is the day to watch what I eat" but I have to take some action to make it actually be THE DAY. Ya know?
I talk really bad to myself and my depression is looming. Is that any way to live as a newlywed?
My body is not well and I can feel it. My knees hurt, my feet hurt, I have no stamina when I exercise. I generally love to exercise and I am not getting any joy from it right now.
I want to have a baby and want to be as healthy as I can be for it. And I want to be feeling HOT while I'm making that baby. It's a great motivator isn't it Dev?
SO here goes...they say you generally lose two pounds a week if you are losing weight in a healthy manner. I will report back next Thursday.

RUG LOVE - by loveplusmarriage on Polyvore.com
Okay...I'm note sure what your reactions will be but I am utterly in love with this rug. It is crazy and colorful and oh so charming. I think it adds some of that "kooky-ness" that seems like my style. It jazzes up the couch and chair. Plus there is some pink in there but maybe not so much that it scares Asher? I could point out that our "couch" now is kind of pink and he's been living with that for a few years. I have read tons of reviews of this sofa and they are overwhelmingly positive. Five out of five stars on Macy's and numerous blogs and readers rate it the best mid-century sofa - even compared to higher priced models. The obsession is fully formed at this point. Oh the rug...do you hate it?

Don't you just want to lounge in it naked? Is it just me? Is the baby blue ultra suede going to my head? Does one have to pay rent (cough, cough, Ness)? This chair fits all my requirements. Lovely color. Lovely texture. Pin-tucks. Odd shape. Now I have to try to forget is exists and costs $2700. Thanks. Thanks a bunch.

Living Room Macys - by loveplusmarriage on Polyvore.com
I really love the tufted backs. Can you tell? But I fell head over heels when I saw Gwen Stefani's office in Domino magazine. She has a bunch of baby blue slipper chairs that are just perfect. This pink one from Urban Outfitters is close but the pink may just be too much for Asher to take. And depending on how long we live on Pelly Street, the clash factor is high with red walls.
I just sat, layed and rolled on this couch today at Macy's. It is on sale through February. I would probably get it in their silver/grey color or a beige brown for neutral's sake.
Please tell me what you think. I am new to grown-up decorating so I'm not sure what my taste is. These are just items that jumped out to me cause I liked 'em.
