This is my request. Show your favorite place to relax. It can be a chair, corner, ledge, or limb. :) Get out those cameras and take pics or just write how you feel when you are in your "zone".
I am so happy to participate in this week's Fun Monday and share my favorite "lounge" spots. The first is my couch.
This may sound like a pretty common answer, but you have to understand how long it took me to get this couch! When I bought my condo 4 1/2 years ago, I couldn't really afford a whole lot of furniture, so most of my furniture was either bought at second hand stores (I found some amazing furniture this way), Walmart, or was handed down by my family. My "couch" for the first 2 1/2, maybe even 3 years that I lived here was an old, ratty, love seat. It was uncomfortable at best, downright painful to sit on at worst. It was always covered with some form of slipcover, most of which didn't fit right, and looked HORRENDOUS...It was either that, or the matching chair, which I still own, and still sits under a slip-cover, but is now only used when there are too many people at my house for the couch (which is rarely). This couch was the first major piece of furniture I bought myself, and I'm very proud of it. It is beautiful in my eyes, is made of that great micro-suede material that you can spill tomato soup on and it washes off (trust me, I've actually done this), and is ultra comfortable. AND of course, there is the chaise lounge portion of it that I just love. Here's a close-up.
This is where I park my behind most evenings after work, reading, watching television, talking on the phone, and even falling asleep.
My current other favorite lounge spot is one of the three floaty chair/bed/thingys in my parents' new pool. I spent the entire weekend loungin' in their pool (I also did a ton of water aerobics while there), and there is nothing like laying on one of these floaties and just spacing out...words cannot describe the feeling, so I won't even try...
Here's one of the chairs:
And this "shell" thing, is ridiculously comfortable, I almost fell asleep in it today:
There is also one of those mattress/bed things, but I didn't get a picture of that one. I spend most of my time on this pink thing anyway...
And then, of course, there is my bed...I don't so much "lounge" as I sleep, but this bed, which I purchased before I even bought my condo, is so incredibly comfortable all these years later, that I still find myself saying "I love this bed" when I lay in it every night...aaahhhhh....
There you have it, my lounge spots!
This was fun! Happy Monday everyone!
