i hate coming up with post titles.

Photobucket

here is a clearer picture of our house, and a different angle. hopefully we can close sometime next week and get moved in on the 3 day weekend that we get for pioneer day. our apartment is a disaster right now. and poor mosey is so scared of everything going on that he actually wet the bed. that has never happened before. and we were only gone for 30 minutes. poor guy..

so you know how we have a history with our couches... we have had several different sets since we have been married. all used and all very different. the first set, was very old, and we could not seem to get some certain smells out of it. the 2nd, i loved.. but unfortunately had been sitting in my parents backyard for a little too long. and certain spider families had decided to move in. and even after cleaning it out and bug bombing it, they decided to stay. i absolutely loathe spiders. and sean hates when i say that word but i don't even care. maybe i should say he loathes when i say that word. we then got another set and ended up mixing it up with another set. so so far we have put 3 sets of couches/love seats out on our lawn for free.

the first set was gone with in an hour.

the spider set? well we looked outside and there was a man sitting on it smoking a cigarette. he only spoke spanish and sean had a conversation with him. he was waiting for his friends to come pick them up. he was "Reserving" them if you will. i felt so bad giving those ones away. they looked great, but i wouldn't sit on them if you paid me to. and to be fair i felt like i had no way of warning that man since i don't speak spanish....

i don't think anyone took the 3rd set. pretty sure we took that one to D.I.

well we ended up finding a sectional that we liked over the weekend, and decided to move out our old couches. remember how i stabbed one of them? well anyway, we put the couches out there with the slipcovers on them and we left. when we came back, mosey had peed in his bed because of sheer terror or probably because he saw  someone had taken the slipcovers off of the couches and couldn't do anything about it because of the stupid cone on his head. meh, oh well. one has a hole in it from a knife. hopefully they won't mind. i can imagine the stories that they might come up with about the stab hole.. but to be honest? i think the same person has taken all of the couches... my biggest fear is that a neighbor will invite us into their home and ask me to sit on their couch. and i will see it's the spider couch. and i will feel obligated to sit on it. is that sad that i have actually thought about that really happeneing?

anyway, we have learned not to leave anything out on our front lawn unless we are trying to get rid of it. we once had to put a mattress out there because we were replacing it with a new one.. i thought someone was going to take it.  someone else saw our old washer out on the side of our house and asked if they could have it. i mean, it was even hidden?? i am pretty sure i have seen the neighbors eyeing mosey. i am glad we won't be living there when we decide to have kids because they will probably be up for grabs in a heartbeat. unless they are ugly. was that mean? wait, never mind. that didn't stop people from taking the couches, so who knows? it's probably a good thing we are moving..

*update: i just went home for lunch and someone stole the pillow/cushions off of the couches... come on! just take the whole couch!!

That's nice that you found a new couch that hopefully you won't have to give away for a while. Hopefully you can close on the house and move away before your neighbor invites you over to sit on your old couches...but maybe it could be a walk down memory lane for you. Maybe they're all in their living room and you could not have to sit on the spider couch and you could sit on the stab couch and plug your nose at the smell of the old couch, because it's in the same room, but don't take your shoes off in case a spider climbs out of the spider couch. Anyway...poor mosey.

Moving will be great, especially if you're living in a crappy neighborhood. Unfortunately, I'm moving TO a crappy neighborhood.

Alicia said...

crissy said...

people are so weird. "what's this? free junk?! oh, i don't know, it's been stabbed... but, it's free, so why not?!"
and who knows what the cushion takers were thinking... "ooh, free couch!, oh wait, i don't need a couch... but one can never have too many cushions..yoink!"

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

That is crazy!

I just saw the cutest little vanity table out in front of a house and was going to go back with Dustin to get it but within an hour it was gone. I was SO BUMMED!

Congrats on the house lady, it looks awesome!

Ams said...

Your new house looks SO nice! I am really excited for you guys :)
And seriously people... you are right, TAKE THE WHOLE COUCH ALREADY!!!

Michelle said...

haha I love that you are paranoid about finding your couches at you neighbors house! One time we left our OLD NASTY patio furniture out for people to take. And I mean they were pretty gross, and the next day we see it in our neighbor's yard.

awkward?

Caroline said...

Congrats on your home!!! I am so excited for you, Sean and Moses. And you know, I hate coming up with post titles too!!! Sending you a hug! xo

Jennifer said...

The house looks so nice! I can't wait to see pictures of the inside (hint hint). And you can't put an old crappy couch inside your brand new house, so of course you had to buy a new one. New furniture is so much nicer to have than old spidery stuff.

Crazy Shenanigans said...

That is such an awesome house!!!! How awesome for you guys! I can't believe someone would take the cushions but not the couch?!? lol

the hopkins said...

hahaha this post was so funny. I love how you write, and your choice of words. You're so funny Chloe. And you know I hate, or loathe, spiders too!! Seriously it gives me the chills to think about my couch being infested with them.
Anyway, I love your counch stories and think they are all so funny. I'm so glad you guys are moving, your house is adorable!

knz said...

The house looks good!!! I'm excited for you!

Sam said...

i'm glad you found a new couch! i know what you mean about neighbors having your things.. we recently had a garage sale and all i could think about is the people in our neighborhood having my stuff. strange concept.

and i love love love the house!

Michael, Mindy, and Dane said...

i am 100% with you on the post title thing, and i think i've mentioned it before.

i'm excited to see the new sectional! and more pictures of the house!

how exciting if you really close within the next week. it's all going so fast! yay!

Selma said...

great you found one. and yes, what's up with only taking the pillows?! i saw people do this before. either take the whole thing or nothing at all. :(

good luck with the move girl. :)

xoxo

How fun. As weird as it is, moving was one of my favorite things. I love to clean out my house and get rid of junk and move into a nice empty space. Unfortunately my husband is a pack rat and keeps everything... If you guys need any help- let me know! We just got a bigger car... :)

♥ Katinka said...

Chloe, I'm so happy for you and Sean. That is so awesome. I'm sorry for my lack of comments but life has been busy. You know how that goes. I hope all is well with you !!!! how exciting!!!! :)

Michele said...

You crack me up! I can't wait to hear what you come up with about the new bedroom set! Good luck with next week's closing and the big move. Do you need me to come stand outside your apartment as you are moving so no one takes anything???:)
