Ben and I spent the first few months of our marriage squished on a tiny love seat in our teeny apartment living room watching episodes of 24 until the wee hours of the night. That tiny love seat was the only piece of furniture in the room.
So it was kinda a big deal when we made our first big purchase as a married couple–our giant, white fluffy couches from Sofas U Love, couches that fit more than two “affectionaite” newlyweds. At the time, I didn’t think twice about choosing white.
And then, 3 years later we welcomed our little babe into the world.
And that’s when it started.
This couch has seen its share of messy moments.
Blueberries, yogurt, dorritto fingerprints, mushy goldfish crackers, apple juice…
Only a few short days after the poo incident, Lil W was a bit too quiet by himself in the living room.
And after finding his diaper had been removed in the hallway, I went into the room to learn that he had managed to cover nearly every single cushion with his “stream” in a matter of seconds.
And while I’m not sure what I was thinking getting white couches, I’m giving myself a pat on the back for getting a couch with slip covers. Because in a few short hours, a load of laundry and a cap of bleach later–and my white couches were as good as new.
