Sunday Brunch and Couch Shopping

For those of you who have some non-sporty husbands, let me fill you in. When one marries a sports fanatic, they become a widow--a football widow all fall! Most weekends, I spend cleaning, working out and shopping since I can't pull him away from the TV. Sunday was a different story, I actually got to spend time with B! After church, we went for brunch at Le Peep. B didn't want to go there at first because he thought it "sounded fruity". He lost the battle.

I ordered a yummy Cinnamon Roll Latte. One of the best lattes I've ever consumed! (Because I'm an addict, drugs on the side please.)

For my meal, I ordered the pumpkin stuffed french toast. It was even better this morning for leftover breakfast!


Brian got the Cinnamonster (and other food but I didn't capture it)...he's giving his monster look too!
After brunch we went to the only furniture store in Nebraska-- Nebraska Furniture Mart. FYI, this place makes all other furniture places go out of business because it's so big. We've had our current couch for a hefty 3 years and it's complete crap, and looks like crap too. Brian, with his geriatric ways, wants a recliner. I simply hate the look of recliners--so old fashioned. I want leather since it seems to last forever. So we're looking at leather recliner couches.


#1

#2

#3

I like #1 because it's different, #2 because it's classic, and #3 is maybe a little too dark ....

hey i had french toast yesterday too...yummm, not as good as your I bet. Brian's cinnamon roll is almost the size of his head!

#3 because I like the look of dark leather...it just screams SEXY...lol.

p.s. I know what you mean about Sunday+Football.

I too am a football widow so I feel your pain! I like #1 better!

I like #1.

I take it you live in Nebraska? I spent most of my life there--went to UNL. A little disappointed with this Husker season, but what can you do?

I totally here you about being a football widow, though I've caved a little. My boyfriend, who lives in Boston, makes me go to the Boston area Husker bar with him when I visit to watch the games. Kind of neat to see former Nebraskans come together, but strange that you can't escape Husker football even after you've moved!

Since I just got a neck-ache from my recliner I am thinking they both look poofy in the head area. I guess because I am short they do that to me. I like the first better than the second.

Very nice leather couches Risa! I love the last one since I'm partial to the darker colors of leather. ~Gorgeous! ;)

Enjoying looking at your recipes... the apple pie looks yummy. As for the couches... a strong vote for number 2 !

Tara said...

I would have to say #2. I guess it is kinda in between the other two. Not literally in between number-wise between style-wise. Ya know!

We have 2 doggies & a baby on the way. I saw you have a dog too. I love that you can just wipe leather down & its clean! I don't think I will ever get anything other than leather again...maybe in chair or something, but not my main living room group!

#2 looks kinda rustic & I like it! I like the color :)
