This past weekend was a weird one. An exciting one, no doubt (new adventures!), but we’ll fully admit to losing all track of time, wondering, wait, did we already have brunch today? Or was that yesterday? We watched our beloved Penguins get swept right out of the Playoffs (be kind; our egos haven’t yet recovered), toasted our Closing Day with patio drinks at Parsons (go there! Go now!), showed our home to potential renters (cleaning, dusting and Swiff-ing before each one), celebrated the birthday boy, and somehow, came home with two new pieces of furniture. And if we’re being honest, with the closing behind us, we shouldn’t be so surprised.
ONE. After Scott spotted the dresser in a nearby alley, we slept on it before scooping it. Because, remember, we aren’t supposed to bring any new items in that we’ll have to move? But it was still there 2 days later, and a quick social media poll told us to stop being silly! We picked it up, and for now, it’s living in the back of the wagon. (Where else will it go?)
TWO. As if one new item wasn’t enough (although yes, it was free!), we treated ourselves to an afternoon at Humboldt House – a new vintage shop that we want to move into. Every price point is hit throughout the store, and you guys! They have a shop Pittie! The seemingly innocent trip turned dangerous when I spotted that velvet chair – and after pleading my case for a solid 30 minutes to Scott, we picked that up, too. I have big plans for that one; big plans.
New house, get here! We have things to put in you!
