There is nothing like watching an entire series on Prime to get to the last season and see that you can’t because it isn’t available in your country. I love that.

So if you didn’t see my Instagram stories from a couple of days ago my husband found my dream couch at Value Village for $21, which is unreal.

It’s like a red velvet long settee with a wooden frame and legs. Very haunted Victorian house chic which is my desired aesthetic.

I never thought we would find one, especially for that price. It’s currently at his workspace so he can clean it up and restuff the cushions with the big chunks of memory foam that we had kicking around for some reason.

That gives me time to clear a spot and move the living room around.

Hopefully this time we don’t go through the same couch fiasco that we did last time when it didn’t fit through the door, resulting in us not having an actual couch since January 2020.

Fingers crossed.
