We had a beautiful Easter weekend. The redbuds are beginning to bloom in my yard and the forsythias are in full bloom. It's such a beautiful time of year that you just can't help but smile when you see green grass and pretty flowering trees out your window.
We made another trip to Nebraska Furniture Mart on Saturday which is 12 miles west of downtown Kansas City. It was a nice trip and we got to see our son and his girlfriend again and had another good visit.
This store is huge and BG and I walked over much of it. I snapped this shot as we were about to the end of our ride on the escalator. This is just a small portion of the main floor. What brought us back to this place was the free shipping and sales which ends on Tuesday. I did order the tv stand that I showed in this post. I also bought a new mattress that I hope will help my aching back.
We also looked at recliners and I fell in love with this leather beauty. There is just one problem. How would it hold up with kitties in the house? Give me your opinion please! Especially if you've had leather and kitties in the same house! I looked at the fabric recliners, but they all pale in comparison to this beauty. We brought the ordering info home and we need to make a decision today before the sale goes off tomorrow with the free shipping!
We spent quite a long time looking and pondering. We don't make purchases like this as often as some folks I know, so I make sure it is something I'm going to love! Once we made a decision on the mattress and while still pondering the recliner, I just enjoyed looking at the decor items. BG dutifully followed along...hating every minute, I'm sure. lol! I spied a pillow and thought it was something I'd like. That is, until I saw the price tag.
Nearly 85 bucks for a throw pillow...I don't think so. I must say, though, that this store has it all and most things have very reasonable prices. I mentioned that it is huge, with a total of 1.1 million sq ft of retail and warehouse space. No wonder my poor feet and knees were aching at the end of the day! I had fun looking and I'm glad we finally got the tv table and mattress ordered. We were needing them.
Now...on to the big news for today. I have a winner to announce for the pretty mugs that I found one day at my favorite resale shop. I didn't get a picture, but I put the numbers into the random generator and number 3 came up on my screen. And the winner who matched number 3 is....
