Stressless (furniture)

So my post on Friday indicated perhaps a Bond movie. Not so much. Instead I spent $7.50 on "real" popcorn at our local theater and brought it home to watch The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. HIGHLY recommended for the family during the holiday season.

On Saturday, Jeff and I had a wonderful brunch at our local Bruegger's Bagels, and figured out it had been over 2 years since we had last been out for bagels! After that, we headed to the Macy's furniture store in Edina, on a quest for Sherrill Motioncraft furniture, on recommendation from Mom. Struck out (no recliners), so next on to the International Design Center where we looked at recommendation #2, the Ekornes furniture.

And there we found the holy grail of recliners. Chiropractic approved, and supremely comfortable, hopefully we can save our pennies and spring for one of these puppies. Jeff likes the Ekornes "Sunrise" chair in Chili Red, so that's what we might put on order since we have to wait 6 months to get it. Of course, Mom will be checking to see if we can get a better deal...

Anyway, on to Saturday night - we spent the night with my ADPi alumnae group at Dave & Buster's, an adult arcade. I hit the jackpot on Wheel of Fortune, and also played basketball, skeeball, air hockey, racing, shoot-em-up games, just about anything you could want. And with a beer in my hand. Tee hee.

Yesterday we put up Christmas lights. Photos forthcoming (once we take them)...
