one month.

in meals

hey guys! i don’t have time to post today.  we have couch issues.

you see, we bought a big ol’ sectional for the living room on august 9th. from ashley furniture. unfortunately, a few of the pieces in the sectional were out of stock.. but they assured us we could pick everything up on the 16th.

that was yesterday.

they called yesterday and let me know that the items would not be in stock until the twenty seventh.. which is nearly 3 weeks after we purchased the furniture and, by the way, paid for it in full.

annoying. we are going to get our money back and take our business elsewhere.

just not sure where elsewhere is! that is why i have no time to post. i have a couch to find.

august 17. it has been one month since the wedding. it basically feels like the wedding was ages ago! a lot has happened in the past month.

i don’t have the professional photos on a disc yet.. because i am so dang busy and haven’t had a chance to swing by the photographer’s to place my order and whatnot.. but there are some on his website.

here are a few wedding photos for your viewing pleasure! all images copyright brody dezember photography.










have a great night! i’ve got a special giveaway lined up for tomorrow.. make sure to check back ;)

our couch is from JC penney and it’s moved with us from San Fran to NYC and now back to LA…i love it, its micro suede, super comfy, good value, and has held up great! (just in case you needed a rec).

good luck!

Carla in Sydney August 17, 2010 at 8:40 pm

The photo where the girls are all behind you in “boxes” is fantastic! So cool!!

I hate bad service from retailers, etc….It makes my blood boil! Good luck finding a new couch!

BBx2 - Mandy & jR August 17, 2010 at 8:57 pm

Aw! Congrats on one month already! I can’t believe it!

The pictures are awesome! I think my two favs are of the Izze drinks (the colors are so cool!) and the one of you with your bridesmaids behind you :)

Angharad August 17, 2010 at 9:06 pm

Gorgeous! You and the boy look absolutely gorgeous! Love your colours and love the location. All the plants and flowers look amazing.

Have a great night…find a couch! Your butts must be sore!

katecooks August 17, 2010 at 9:41 pm

Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) August 17, 2010 at 11:57 pm

girl. I am the midst of making over skylar’s room and i have posted the past 2 days about Ikea delivery b.s. from hell. It’s BEEN HELL! Dont buy from Ikea unless you can assmble it, i guess w/ a couch there’s not really much that needs to be done but just sayin; don’t count on their delivery service. I was held hostage in my house for 2 days as they proceeeded to BLOW 2 diff days and delivery windows. Fun times. Yeah.

Couch…I’d recommend West Elm. I LOVE my West Elm couches. A little more than Ashley, not as much as other places. classy and will stand the test of time. I have re-done my entire house in west elm the past few yrs and cannot say enough amazing things about their furniture in terms of quality and style :) Pottery Barn also lasts forever if you can swing$$ it. Z Gallerie is my ultimate but that’s insane$$ for most pieces.

1 month. LOVE IT!! congrats!

Kerry August 18, 2010 at 12:25 am

I honestly didn’t think you’d have a dress like that, but its gorgeous on you!

balancejoyanddelicias August 18, 2010 at 4:33 am

lovely pictures! I like your dress!!! :D

lilveggiepatch August 18, 2010 at 5:59 am

How has it already been a month already?! Congratulations, you two! (Still can’t get over how awesome that cake is.)

Kristin (Cook, Bake and Nibble) August 18, 2010 at 6:09 am

Wow, a month already? Awesome!

Those pics look GREAT, you’re beautiful!

Sorry about the couch situation… you’ll find one! Tried Ikea? I know you don’t have a C&B near you


simplyshaka August 18, 2010 at 6:11 am

Absolutely ridiculous about the sofa…grrrr.

Love all the pics, especially the one of yall cutting the cake :)

Di August 18, 2010 at 6:12 am

Those pictures are awesome! I bet the rest of them are equally as fantastic.

Good luck with the couch situation. Hopefully you find something soon!

lowandbhold August 18, 2010 at 6:15 am

I can’t believe it’s been a month already! Good golly.

I hope you guys find the perfect couch, I can feel your pain on furniture store annoyance – it seems like they all have a pact to be as inefficient as possible.

MelissaNibbles August 18, 2010 at 6:30 am

I love how you say you don’t have time to post, but post. hahaha!

Love the pictures! Happy one month!

Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) August 18, 2010 at 7:23 am

Those photos are absolutely stunning!! :D

And don’t worry, you’ll find that perfect couch soon!

whit August 18, 2010 at 7:31 am

Everything about your wedding was awesome, but particularly the cake.

nic August 18, 2010 at 8:12 am

LOVE the pic with you and your bridesmaids!!
Can’t wait to see more… :)

Erica August 18, 2010 at 10:30 am

How annoying about the couch! I hope you find one you like!! The wedding pictures are amazing. I love the one of you and the bridesmaids in the store window. Also just love how happy you look. This wedding has so much of you two in it- just perfect

hundredtenpounds August 18, 2010 at 10:41 am

Having your wedding in a greenhouse is a great idea!

BroccoliHut August 18, 2010 at 11:20 am

Ugh, I feel you on the furniture woes. After much searching for the perfect black sofa, I found it, ordered it, only to be informed that it would not arrive for four weeks. I now have a kitchen dining table after a week of eating on the floor…but it sits in its box, waiting for Seth to assemble it:)

Tamizn August 18, 2010 at 2:02 pm

My god you looked amazing lady! What a lucky man he is! x x

Runeatrepeat August 18, 2010 at 4:12 pm

I’ve been super busy, but I stopped by because I miss you :)

Katie August 18, 2010 at 7:02 pm

BEAUTIFUL!!! So.dang.beautiful.

Good luck with your couch issues. :-(

glidingcalm August 18, 2010 at 7:58 pm
