We're starting to furnish our place

Well, after coming back we've decided to get a few new things. I've started putting up more drapes. Originally I was going to make them, but then with the cost of buying a sewing machine plus fabric, it was cheaper for me to buy them. So here are some pictures.

Our new TV! We're pretty excited about this. It's a 32" flat screened HDTV. PBS looks great on this baby.
This is a little decoration that I had made while I was still home. I've finally framed it. Now all we have to do is hang it. That might take another 5 months.

These are the old blinds in our family room.
And this is our new drape.

This is the actual design on those drapes. It's the same for our new laundry area drapes too.
If you remember, we had different drapes for our laundry area. We're going to put those up to separate the living and family room. Edward thinks that if we block off that area we'll save more on heating. So, since the laundry are is so ugly, I had to get new drapes that would compliment the old ones since they aren't far away. I went with the light colored one for the family room window to offset the brightness of the red.
These are our new drapes in the bedroom. They're navy blue, not black. They help with the sun a lot. I haven't figured out how to hem up the bottom of the curtains by the bed. For now they're tied up so that Edward doesn't get caught up in them at night.
Excuse the mess. I just finished folding the laundry. We're really not this messy.

Ed is playing our new Wii. The other day we went everywhere and called everyone to find one, but they were all sold out. So today after picking up our new coffee table he asked me to call Best Buy to see if they had any and they did! He got so excited. The man at the store said that there were only three on the shelf. We were only two miles away, but by the time we got there, Edward grabbed the last one. I didn't have his Best Buy gift cards on me so I went all the way home while he clung onto the Wii for dear life. We went to Toys 'R' Us afterwards to get him some games with this 25% off coupon.
This is the boxing portion of Wii Sports.
Looks like an ordinary table right?
Wrong! It's lift top one so that we don't have to lean forwards over it. It doesn't match out end table, but that's okay. We could have gotten the matching color, but we both liked this one much better and wanted to make sure that we enjoyed it since it was a lot of money.
