Our second year anniversary is coming up on the 22nd of this month. For those of you who do not know, this year is cotton, so John and I are planning to get some new bed linens for our room. Which is great, because we really need it. Right now we are using some old striped hand-me-downs and microfiber blankets/throws to sleep with, which is definitely not very stylish. However, that also presents a problem, because I’m having a difficult time deciding on what to do for the room.

I’ve perfected my chocolate frosting recipe, which is actually better tasting the day after. When I taste-test the frosting as I’m making it, it just tastes like powdered sugar and shortening. However, the next day there is no mistaking the rich chocolate texture, taste and color.
Last week we purchased a pool table on clearance, which has been my husband’s dream ever since we started talking about moving into a house. We weren’t planning on purchasing one so soon, though. It just so happened that he went to the Sports Authority to figure out which table he wanted to save up for, and one of the tables was on sale for $240 (original price: over $400), so we decided to get it. We had some family over this weekend, and the pool/ping pong table was a hit, so we are definitely happy with the purchase. The only downside is that the corner pockets droop a bit, so he’s using these tension curtain rods to hoist up the pockets. Eventually though, we’ll probably just build a new base. It is a “budget” pool table, so you can only expect so much from them.
After being cooped up in our apartment for so long, we’ve neglected to make many purchases just to defer until we finally have a house, mostly because we just lacked the space. One such purchase included new dishes. Before we moved, John and I went to Homegoods and found some nice, white dishes for a pretty affordable price but didn’t want to buy them at the time because we were moving, and all of the expenses that come along with that. However, knowing the nature of inventory at stores like HomeGoods, we knew that we couldn’t wait long if we wanted to purchase them. Just this past weekend we went over and of course, they were completely sold out of the dinner plates! I was so disappointed.
