Around the house

We are changing things up a bit around the house for all the guest we are planning to have when the baby comes. We are having my MIL for about a month around Dec and my father (and hopefully brother) come in January. We know we needed a place for guest to sleep now that our guest room will be taken over by the baby nursery.
We decided a sofa bed for the living room would be a good idea. Then today, I get this email from Ikea stating they have their Manstad sofa bed with chaise storage lounge on sale for $200 cheaper than its normal price, making it only $699 (super cheap!). It is compact, perfect for our very small living room and creates a good sized bed. It has a chaise on one side with HUGE storage underneath. I have read multiple website today that seem to have great reviews. If you are interested, Ikea fan seems to like it, and Apartment Therapy wrote a review here. Apartment Therapy also voted it one of the Best Sleeper Sofas & Sofa Beds 2010.

So it is safe to say that we will be heading to Ikea this weekend to check this baby out and possibly purchase. The only downsize is the lack of color options, but I know Joy and I can come up with something to make it pretty.

ohhhh and..... I GOT THE CRICUT! It was on 40% sale at Micheals Craft Store yesterday for only $98! I have been eying the Cricut for over a year now, especially because I like to hand make all my cards I give and I am a huge scrapbooker. I am so excited to get my craft on!
