couch love

We’re in the midst of a huge transition. We moved from Nashville, TN to Northwest Arkansas. Who knows when we’ll feel settled again. So many questions: Do we rent for a bit? Hurry and buy a house? Which city should we live in?

Blah, blah, blah.

Let’s discuss the important things.

When is there a better time to sell both of our couches on Craigslist and find a new, dream one?

I’ve always preferred leather over fabric. Bringing our sweet MJ into our life only confirmed the necessity of being able to wipe milk, juice, and pee stuff off of the couch we live on. Yep, we live on our couch.

It has to be a good one.

I follow Ikea on Twitter and they tweeted this blog post today.

That couch. Swoon. Maybe they’ll let me take a nap on it the next time I’m in Dallas. Just to try it out.

Here are two from West Elm that I’m crushing on, too.

Are you in love with your couch? Do you have a dream one? Where do you go to find a good deal on a sofa?

Who wants to donate to the Find Bethany a Dream Couch fund?

Happy hunting! xoxo

my momfilter interview

Hello there!

I’m pumped today because I get to share an interview that I did with Momfilter.

How did that happen, you ask?

About a month ago, my friend Hannah over at Sundry Mumsy suggested that I share some sandals from the Whoa, wait. Walmart? project with Momfilter for their Summer Sandals Series. I immediately emailed Momfilter to introduce myself and ask if they would like to share our favorite sandals. Within a week or two I received a reply from co-creator, Yolanda Edwards.  She was excited to share the sandals for their series, but also asked if they could interview me for their We Want to Know More About series. Completely shocked and flattered, I agreed (of course).

Yolanda emailed me the interview questions. I spent a week agonizing and analyzing answering the questions perfectly the first time and editing my answers. I emailed her my responses, along with some pictures, last Saturday. When I woke up this morning, I had an email from her saying she published it this morning!

It was such a fun experience to work with Yolanda and Momfilter. I hope our paths continue to cross. If you haven’t read their blog before, check it out. (Even if you aren’t a mom.) They have great style advice, tips for the kitchen and travel, and beautiful pictures.

Have you been interviewed before? Did you fret over your answers or is it just me?

Happy hunting! xoxo
