I mentioned that my parents bought me a new couch for my birthday. My mom knew I was a little depressed about staying in Cedar City, and she also knew my old couch was pretty ugly, and matched nothing in my living room.
So, she and my dad came down south to spend my birthday with us, and we chose out a new one. Unfortunately, someone else bought it 5 minutes before we did, so I had to wait a few weeks for it to be ordered and finally delivered.
Turns out that this was a good thing, since my old couch didn't sell in the garage sale and it took me a couple weeks to get rid of it on Craig's List. It left about a week before the new one came, but I figure that it was better to have no couch for a while than to have to deal with two of them. (Such a nugget of wisdom, don't you think?)
And here it is, in all of it's black, fake leather glory!
You'll notice my ottoman is actually dark brown, and doesn't exactly match. However, it matches much better with this couch than it did with the tapestry green, pink, blue and white flowered couch. Believe me.
Thanks again Mom and Dad! You guys are the best!
