I hope you didn't forget about me!
It's been a crazy busy week, and on top of it all I'm leaving for San Francisco on Friday.
I've been apartment hunting ever since my raise and news that our office is relocating...but have been kinda "mehh" about the apartments I've toured. Just this past weekend I came across a complex in a fantastic downtown-like area with lots of walkable restaurants and shopping! I scored on a top floor unit with a great balcony, lots of light and great positioning :) I'm super happy, just funny the way everything seems to happen at once!
HIGHLIGHT of MY WEEK:
I am admittedly super picky, especially when it comes to style and quality. I would rather wait and save for something I'm lusting over than settle for a similar version and regret it later....
So, I have been looking for a couch for my living room.
The elements must include: Overstuffed, white, large cushions with tailored slip covers (for easy washing). Ikea's three seat "Ektorp" was exactly what I have been looking for, but I was so not going to pay $500.
I love the hunt, so before I even start through Ikea's immaculate showrooms, I pop into their "As is" section and see if by chance they have what I'm looking for. After work one night I stopped in, and was taken aback. It was like a light from above was shining down on a raggedy looking Ektorp. Aside from the slip cover being next to demolished, the couch was in perfect condition and marked down to less than half! All it needed was a new slip cover...
Needless to say, luck was on my side that night!
