Or, as Zircadia says, WOOT! LOL!
When I first started my job, almost 16 years ago, wee were getting very nice bonuses. About 15 years ago, I was able to pay cash for a couch, love seat, chair and coffee table set. The kids destroyed the coffee table YEARS ago. However, until today, I have had the couch, love seat and chair ever since. The old set was green. A really pretty (in my world anyway) forest green. The material wasn't quite leather, but it wasn't plastic either. I don't know if it is pleather, but it held up pretty well. Especially considering that my dog has been trying to lick his way to the stuffing for the last four years!!
Here's a pick of the love seat (keeping it for now)
I use the love seat more than the rest of the family and it is in the best shape (coincidence?), so we are keeping it for now. However, a couple of weeks ago, we went to a local furniture store and bought a new couch and a new chair. They are a cocoa brown and they look really good in my living room. DH and I went to pick them up today after work. Good thing I've been working out! Those things are heavy! Jiminy Crickets!! There are no calorie counting activities in Spark People for moving furniture, but I'm sure I burned at least 1000 calories moving out the old and moving in the new!!
Here are pics of the new! Chair -
