Time to grow up

Apparently, to my DH grown up = new, matching furniture. So, today he and I went to the furniture and bought a new couch and dining room set. Here is the couch.
The funny part is that although it's a sectional, it might just be too big for our living room so the chaise may have to be separated. He's always wanted a sectional and I thought this was really pretty so be it.

And here is our dining room table/chairs and server (I already have a china cabinet, much to DH's dismay I refused to buy the "matching one").

We bought 2 extra chairs so we'll be able to seat 8.

We also bought a new 8X10 area rug for under the table.

So, aren't you impressed with how grown up we are?

The best part is that we are picking it up next Saturday and not telling any of our friends/family that we bought the furniture. So when they come for Thanksgiving, it will all be here! I can't wait to see the look on their faces when all of our old furniture is gone. How fun.

Beautiful furniture! It's still very odd to me to come in and see new pieces though - I still have a great deal of fondness for my old, ratty sofa downstairs. :)

Thanks Everyone.

Katie- I agree about the old pieces, hence the disagreement about my china cabinet. I love my china cabinet and do not care that the wood is not as dark as that on the new table/server. I'm keeping it.

Oh wow... just LOOK at that!

Definitely grown up stuff. My DH and I are both in our forties and we STILL haven't gone there. (unless you count having a mix n match rattan theme as "matching") I keep thinking I'll save the expense for when we actually own a house.

Congratulations on your maturity! I can't wait to hear how your friends and family react.
