Today, we sign the closing paperwork on our new house. We're celebrating by going out to dinner and then going furniture shopping. A new bed and a new couch are on our agenda. Eventually we want bar stools for our counter as well. Fortunately, we don't have to worry about a table. Sean's grandpa gave one to the family when he moved to assisted living. It's beautiful, and we just have to figure out how to get it three hours across the state. We will find a way.
Beyond the big items, there are a few other little items I fancy for the new house. I need to watch the spending, so I probably won't splurge. But I feel like sharing them here anyway.
I'm just not sure I can justify $37 for one pillow.

We also really want a turntable, but haven't yet found one that completely won us over. We don't want to spend a ton of money, but we want it to sound decent.
I think this is a pretty good list. Whatever we don't buy in the next year or so, we can always put on our wedding registry, right?
