Today will go down in the books as the day we got our first ever new piece of non-IKEA furniture! All the previous furniture we bought upon our arrival in Texas came from a used furniture store, so today’s couch from Macy’s marked a new beginning in day-to-day comfort and style. We put it to the test right away with Lauren and Small Hound sitting in a corner.



I never know what sort of service providers should be tipped, and if so, how much. While the furniture gentlemen were unloading the couch, I did a quick Google search and it turned out well over half of people tip for such a service, even if you’re already paying for delivery. So I slipped the dude a $10 bill on his way out. I didn’t want them to be mad at me all the way back to San Antonio.
