Nesting...

Like I said a couple post ago, I am suffering from some serious "nesting."  I lay awake at night obsessing over what to get rid of, what to change, what to move, what color to paint, etc...  One good thing about this nesting is that I actually want to get rid of stuff.  I have more of a hoarding personality than a purging personality.  Since I was so impressed with my want to get rid of stuff I had to brag about it on here.  So, when I am not wanting to get rid of things I can reminisce of a time when I once did. 
I mentioned before how Dan and I are having to move our room into the "JUNK" room.  Well, I decided to take a picture of it before we move in and then I plan to take an after.  Just so you know its a little embarrassing to show this photo publicly, just know this is not how the rest of my house looks.  Also the room did have some organization to it and I took this picture after we started pulling everything out into the middle and sorting it. 
please don't judge me to harshly, this is my side
Dans side
 I just want to remind you this is the room at its absolute WORST.
Anyway, I have decided to sell our chase lounge and love seat.  I want a full sized couch that has smaller armrests and isn't overstuffed.  I will sell these and use the money to start a new couch fund!  I am hoping, but have doubts, to find the couch I want in Juneau at a reasonable price and before our little baby comes into this world.  I am excited about the extra room I will have for a while in my living room.  We will just have our antique couch and some random living room chairs.  I am ready for this change and don't think the chase lounge and love seat can get out of my house fast enough.  I am also on the look out for a light weight, simple design coffee table.  I hate ours with a passion, I fantasize about burning it.  It is a cool looking coffee table but it weighs a million pounds, is a super awkward shape and the legs are wobbly, need I say more. 
chase lounge, its red like the love seat.  the cat likes it here so the blanket is protecting it from cat hair

I also went through clothes.  I have 26 random sweaters, coats, jacket and shoes to list on ebay, make money off of and lighten my clothing load.  Which if you know me is more than one person should have.
yay...
Hooray for getting rid of stuff.
