Couches, oh couches. I have never bought a couch before. Is that surprising? For me it isn't. Buying one from a thrift store would have been a good upgrade at any point in my life. When James and I moved in together we inherited the broken couch from his parent's house. It is big. Big, like really hard to move big. It has to be pushing 10 years old. That ol' geezer. Seeing how we are moving into a 6th floor apartment next the idea of dragging that bad boy with us is REALLY not enticing to either of us. Not at all really. So we are finally in the market for new seating. *does a happy dance*

There is just one problem... we can't decide if we want another couch. Couches are awesome. You can lounge, seat more than two people if you like and cuddle. Cuddle is definitely the most important one. But couches are big. Take up a ton of space and well, expensive. So these are my wish list couches. Next I'll have to show you my real life options that both James and I agree on. Our other dilemma... what about doing 2 chairs instead? Yes, like in UP. Oh decisions. I'm so not good at you!

Have any of you had 2 chairs vs a couch? Did you like it? Did it get old quickly?
