couch love


there are many things to dig about
livin' @ my folks house:

*fabulous company
*extra laughs, smiles, & "good-mornings"
*in-house voice of reason{s}
*an a-
mazing ward fam
*helping hands/hearts when i need them most
*holly's mouthwatering popcorn
*
claud's TDF cooking
*AI parties
*crushed ice & water in the door of the fridge
*off-the-hook playroom rights 24/7
*crafty projects continuously going
*shower heads that work

[just to name a few...]

***

dixon suite #5 is quite comfortable & charmingly cozy.
*my parents have been so accommodating*
[bless their stinkin' hearts.]

AND
{i
even cleaned, dusted, & vacuumed today!}

***

but ladies and gents:
say hello {see visual above}
to the
tightest part about our current living quarters.

allow me to introduce you to:
a
dixon relic,
a sweet chunk o' history,
the most AMAZING piece of furniture
ev.er.

it's true.
{all...if not [most] of my
sibs would agree}
it basically
rocks all other sofas [to the death.]

with it's 70's upholstered
amazing-ness...
loved/torn fabric...
beyond-worn cushions...
& all.

***

it was my parents
first couch in utah. {tender!}
it moved with us to
arizona in '91.
it travelled with me to my college-ish apartment.
and then back to the
dixon res.
after which it took a turn @ eric's bachelor pad.
and now it's b-
aaaa-aaa-ck...

...for me to love & enjoy.
{thanks for buying a new leather living room set,
eric!}

and later tonight,
i shall sit upon it's comfy-
ness, hold hands with my boyfriend, sip a delightful beverage of my choice, and watch me some dvr'd jack bauer.

{
see: it serves me well.}

***

oh! and don't worry:
i've made it my personal mission to keep this hog in the family.

as in: i kinda won't let my
parents get rid of it.

afterall:
*ry-dawg still needs time to bond with it post-
mish.

*and i have {no doubt} hollister will find a great future-use for '
im as well.

[that's all!]

happy
*GO SUNS* tuesday!

Oh, my funny couch. Do you remember when Eric took it recently my only requirement was that it never come back? Hahahha. I'm glad you came so we had a reason to bring it home. So glad you like it.

I took many a nap on that thing when it resided in my high school bedroom...aka Dixon Suite #5! Lotsa memories!

That couch also lived in our Phoenix apartment for about six months before we bought new furniture - it's almost a rite of passage for us Dixon children. :)

Don't forget - it lived in our first apartment too after David and I were married! :)

Poor old thing. I guess Ryan and Holly might as well have their fun with it too, and then it can die in peace.
