Yesterday I finally got around to looking at the magazines that have been waiting for me since I got back. As I was looking through West Elm's May 09 magazine, I came across a page that had already been written on:
At first, I thought it was part of the magazine until I saw that the ink was shining differently in the light (Nancy Drew skills)... I know, I was thinking it would be a very strange addition as well. Then once I figured out it was ink, I thought somehow I had gotten a magazine that someone at the distribution center had written in before mailing. That also struck me as strange. I decided to flip through the rest of the magazine to see if there was anymore writing. The next note tipped me off. Hubby had gotten to the mag before me! Hubby has so many different ways he writes, I can't always tell it's his writing. I confronted him last night and he said he had looked at it at 4 in the morning while he was waiting for his coffee to brew. He cracks me up.
I definitely like this idea to create an entry. We don't have an actual entryway and have been brainstorming ways to create one. We've played around with the idea of a bookcase, and I definitely like this one. The only problem I see is that while it will look nice on one side, the other side will be the backs of all the books.
The first purchase hubby and I made with our wedding money was a brown couch. Unfortunately we didn't think it through enough and are now stuck with a patterned brown couch with big brass studs up the arms. It is definitely not a neutral or classic style and I already want to get rid of it. Hubby and I always discuss what couch we "should have" bought. A couch with a pull-out bed like this would be perfect since we have so many out-of-town friends we want to keep our home open to. Someday...
...I guess I will have to leave my magazines out for hubby to find more often!
