on saturday, chris and i were going to indy to get some more things we needed from bed bath and beyond and target and to celebrate my birthday.
however, before we even made it out of the neighborhood, we saw a garage sale and thought we would stop. at this garage sale we got a couch! it's an apartment size couch (between a full size and a love seat) that is a sleeper. she also included the slipcover and 4 pillows all for $20! woo hoo! she even let us leave it at her house until we could come pick it up on sunday.

there were a couple other garage sales going on so we thought we would take a look. chris got a grill for FREE! yes, that's right...a BBQ for Free.99. :D it just needs some cleaning up and a propane tank. needless to say, we were feeling pretty good before we even got on the road.

then we got to bed, bath, and beyond. we found a comforter (for the bed we don't have yet) that matches the sheets we got the last time we went to BBandB. we thought we had forgotten our 20% coupon that we got from our registry...but when we got to the register, we had it! yay! :D

after BBandB, we went to Old Navy. well, at this particular store ONLY they were having a 50% off sale on all their clearance items through saturday. so we made it for the clearance sale on the last day it was offered at the only store it was offered. we love clearance on clearance!!! so we were able to get some new clothes. :D

then we went to dinner at chili's and paid with gift cards. ha. God truly blessed us on saturday with much needed (and even wanted) stuff! :D

then yesterday (sunday), we had lunch with my g-parents, which was nice.
afterwards, chris went and got our couch. we moved it into the living room and are very proud of it. :D unfortunately, the living room is very crowded now since we are sleeping in their on our airbed (as a mentioned, we don't have a bed yet), until i'm done painting our bedroom.

we even got to watch a movie while we were sitting on our NEW (to us) couch. however, we did have to deflate our bed in order to see the tv since the tv is on the floor because the living room isn't finished and set up. HA! but we enjoyed it. :D

i must be honest, monday was not as good as the weekend. i don't want to forget God's many blessings, but today was a rough day. Chris' job is a real pain, although it is money. it's just taking a toll on him. painting the bedroom didn't go so well for me today. oh, and we had to completely take my computer apart last night and work on it for about an hour and a half because a peice of my charger broke off and got stuck in my computer. we got it out, but it was very frustrating. ok, thanks for letting me vent. i love sharing all of our good times and funny stories on this blog, but sometimes, i need to be honest with you, my friends, and share the not-so-good times.

i also am asking for your prayers. Chris really needs a new job. this one has been a blessing when we were desperate for a job. but it's only a seasonal job, and it's a real pain for him. also, please pray for a new job for me as well. my job at the video rental store is fine for the summer, but it's not going to work great with my school schedule. also, please pray that chris and i will be able to have the time and energy to finish setting up/painting our house before school starts.

thanks, friends. i love you all.
