An addition to our family and home

We went out yesterday and I had no idea that I would find the sofa set I've always wanted. I have been eyeing this set from Pottery Barn for over a year now and while visiting a local furniture store, there she was... just waiting for our family. It's sooo comfy and looks JUST like the one at Pottery Barn. The set from PB is around $4000.00 and we found ours for just under a $1000.00 WOOHOO!

I know it's light in color, but it's a fabric that will allow us to keep it clean with the boys and wipe away any grossness! PLUS we bought the cleaning warranty, so that way if there is a stain I can't get out...someone will come and get it out for me :) Can I get an amen on that?!

With this new addition to our home, I think it's time our home gets a face lift. I found this room on Pinterest and I pulled the colors from it. Our front room will be something like these colors and patterns. I love the cool colors with the warm colors. Now I have to decide if I'm going to paint our apartment. Once you've lived in a renting home for more then 3 years, you are no longer responsible for the paint and it can not be taken from your deposit. We have been here for 2 years and plan to be here for another 2... so we are good there, but do I want to deal with the hassle of painting??? Hmmmm... thoughts???

I dont do the actual painting in my house DH does lol. BUT, it made such a difference in how I've felt about certain rooms. We did the kids rooms first after we moved here in 2005 and we didnt get to our room until this year and I am kicking myself for not insisting we do it sooner. The lighter color makes the room look huge and the color (sage) is so calming.
