So Lisa and I were shopping for new furniture for her because she knows there is nothing I like to do more than spend her money. Her husband is a bit of a… dick when it comes to doing things like this with her and I am happy to step up. Fun, fun, fun. She doesn’t know it but I have been sneaking into her house and slowly destroying the couch and chairs that we went out and purchased YEEEEEEEARS ago so that we could do this again.
Boredom is a dangerous thing for me.
There have been many more purchases in those years. We have a history of making some major purchases together and she and her husband and John and I also have a history of getting a bit sloppy from margaritas and ending up going shopping for computers and another time for new cars. The scary thing is, purchases were made both times.
So we hit the bars furniture stores and it all started innocently enough. First stop, Bel Furniture and we took a gander at all the wild, ostentatious, only to be seen in the playboy mansion, flashy-trashy furniture to be had. We had quite a time. There was much giggling and squealing to be had. Lisa posed for a few pics with her new… friend.
There was a lot of glancing around for anyone watching us… We thought we were sneaky… We noticed the security cameras as we were leaving…
Somebody got to watch that, (if they were smart), and we probably made their day.
You can’t really tell in the picture, but I was tossing around my patented “come hither” look, terrified an innocent bystander would see it and jump me.
Er, innocent bystander…. yeah, now I feel the need to apologize to you.
After making complaints about the mattress, we moved on.
Needless to say, we purchased nothing here. But we had a high time “shopping”! On to Dillard’s, The Room Store, and Lazyboy Furniture.
Lisa ended up getting a black leather couch that has recliners built in and she says is perfect. Along with a new chair for the husband. I wouldn’t know if it’s perfect or not because for the first time EVER she chose to purchase something hideous and I, like a good friend(?), stood there and let her, (EVEN THOUGH I TOLD HER IT WAS BUTT UGLY), and then when she went back with her man, she changed her mind and told me she didn’t get the “80’s looking couch” even though it was sooooo comfortable.
So she went ahead and picked out something different while she was there with her husband, of all people, and I have no idea if this is going to turn out to be an acceptable piece of furniture or not. And I bet she’s not even sleeping nights knowing she made a major furniture purchase without me.

Well, how damn selfish of her to actually let her husband help pick out furniture-and leaving you out of it! The nerve!
I remember a time when you two purchased something for me and my family; you fed us when we were hungry, both literally and figuratively, and I will never in a bazillion years forget that.
And hey-she and the statue? Verry hot, and I got the come hither look clear from here. You do it so well.

HA! I’m going to have to check out YouTube when I get home, because if there is video, it’s gonna be on YouTube.
Lisa was pretty rude though, making you follow her around all day, only to take her husband out later. Okay, maybe not rude, but she sure is going soft. 🙂

HA! Can you really do that kind of stuff in stores? I have a furniture purchase to make soon. I’ll let you know if Ashley’s throws me out or not. On second thought, I should bring you gals with me.

I cannot even tell you how many pieces of furniture I’ve purchased after way too many margaritas!! Luckily, I’ve never had to return any and admit I’d bought it under the influence. I’m glad you ladies were sober for your fun shopping spree!!
