Jolly Green Couch

Let me introduce you to our newest piece of furniture. I like to call it the Jolly Green couch, for obvious reasons. It’s is a vintage Chromcraft.

We got this gem a few weekends ago. Our neighbor told us about a friend that was getting rid of some furniture, so of course, my husband and I took a look. I mean, I won’t say no to that. This sofa immediately got my attention, so we snagged it. One thing you should know about this item is it is HEAVY. Seriously, it took three men to get it out of the house. Then, the fun part came, when my husband and I had to carry it up the stairs and into our house, by ourselves. I thought I was going to die.

It lived in our dining room for about a week until we could muster up the energy to move it up another flight of stairs and into our office. Luckily, my husband noticed that the sofa comes apart and we could take it upstairs in pieces. While we were taking it apart, we realized the entire bottom of the sofa was covered in dog hair. Like A LOT of it. I think the dog laid under that sofa everyday of it’s existence. We also found some gum stuck to the bottom too. What treasures we were finding. Lucky for you, I did not take any pictures of that part.

Eventually we got the whole sofa cleaned and moved it upstairs. We put this sofa where we previously had on old Ikea couch. So then we had the fun task of moving the other couch down two flights of stairs and into the basement.

After that, we were exhausted and just ate ice cream for dinner.

Weekend Fun

How was your weekend? Mine consisted of Schweddy Balls. Umm…what? Yes, Schweddy Balls. It is a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor. What did you think I was talking about? It’s based off of the Saturday Night Live skit “Schweddy Balls.” Have you seen it? It’s a classic.

My friend told me about this flavor and I had to try it, if only because of the name. It makes for some fun conversation:

“Do you want to try my Schweddy Balls?”

“My Schweddy Balls are delicious”

I could go on, but I won’t. You are welcome.

We got two flavors, Clusterfluff and Schweddy Balls.

I was a little nervous about the rum flavor, but it was really good. I would highly recommend it. If you try it, let me know how you like Schweddy Balls. Ok, I’m done making jokes about the name.

You’ll Never Guess…

…what my roommate made. Ok, you probably will. It isn’t that hard to figure out. Actually it is quite common to make in the summer. And it is DELICIOUS. Especially when it is in my favorite flavor.

Drum roll please.

Yummy! Here’s the recipe. Evidently, it is easy to make (and you don’t need an ice cream maker), but I can’t confirm that, since I never made it.
