MARRIAGE IS ALL ABOUT COMPROMISE

You all may be surprised to know that my husband LOVES animals. So much so, that he hopes to fill every bit of empty wall space in our house with these lovely animals.  I on the other hand, need a bit of persuasion before giving in to this new idea of interior decorating. So, we've learned to compromise.

It all started with THIS...


For this...


Then he got this...


And said I could have this...

Trip to Hawaii (it's in the works).

We both were happy with the outcome, and learned a new found tactic to get what we want. Soon after that, Sean got an itch for another one, and I really wanted a new couch. So we welcomed this fine fellow into our home.


We traded in our red couch, which looked great in the room but not the most comfortable for watching movies.


For this one! I'm so excited about it because it is probably THE most comfortable couch EVER!!! It came with 4 built in recliners, and the best part about it was the PRICE!!!


We got it for only $1275!!!  Even during the Labor day sale at the local Ashley stores, the cost was $1650.  
I have some exciting news! Through recent networking with the owner of the Ashley Furniture Homestore in Logan, UT.  YOU too can get unbelievable savings on your furniture purchases from the Ashley Homestore in Logan when you PICK UP your orders yourself!   We also got a swivel chair which was $445 on sale locally.  We got the swivel for $299.  So we saved $521 off the Labor Day Sale Price!

I'm such a fan of Ashley Furniture. We now own quite a bit of their furniture. We have their dining room set.

Her'e a better picture of it directly from the site, so I know they are still selling this particular one.

And we also have their bar stools.





Okay so anyway, back to my lesson on marriage. Just give your husband what he wants and you can get what YOU want. Sounds easy enough right?

Oh, and don't forget to enter my giveaway! You could win all this!!!! I'll be choosing the winner on Thursday!!!

Wow, I think you are a better woman than I am. Adam would make out house look like the walls at Cabelas if he could.

I like the way you compromise!

hahahah now that's what I'm talking about! Sean served his mission in Virginia and would often come over to our house for dinner....my parents have tons of animals on their walls too.
Nice furniture!
PS: I have that same rug from Target! Isn't it so cute!?

He & Me + 3 said...

I love your ways to compromise. Too funny. That couch is awesome and i love the circle chair. Fab!

Sean Escobar said...

Thanks Crystal, now I'm going to have animal rights activists all over me. Most of whom wear leather.
People don't realize I have a different take on these mounts. I don't visualize them as a way to show off a trophy. I didn't even kill any of those animal. I think it is just incredible art. I think if they died in the wilderness, they bodies would go to dust. To me this kind of immortalizes them, figuratively speaking.

Heather said...

Too funny! I think I've worked out a few compromises like this is my days as a wife too
:-) Sean's explanation makes me giggle a bit!

FourJedis said...

You guys are so funny!

I love Sean's explanation and just the fact that he comes on here and let's his side be know. Kudos!

We have a similar thing - my husband travels every week for work, so I reward myself with a little prize every week for surviving. Also, whenever Pearl Jam goes on tour, he travels to catch about a 1/2 dozen shows, so I again reward myself with a little something special. It just works for some couples, us being one of them!

That awesome! I need to figure out what my husband really wants so I can get a new car!!! But man, he hardly ever wants anything!!!

Slamdunk said...

Great plan for compromise Crystal. Us guys are happy even if the hangings and furniture are banished to the basement or garage--as long as we have some place to hang out.

Adrienne said...

So...let me just throw this out there. If I let Sean put some animals up in my house, could I get a trip to Hawaii?? He can come over whenever he wants to look at them. I'll even send him daily pictures of the animals.

Kristin said...

Wanna trade lives for a minute? I'd be willing to let the hubs get a new video game system if he takes me to Hawaii. HA!

Lacie @ Creative Attempts said...

This is exactly how my hubby and I compromise isn't it the best! I re decorated our tv room /office and he got a new tv lol

MsBabyPlan said...

I really need to learn that trick. I want a car like the one above and the comprise must be liking his friends, LOL! You are great teacher :)!

Jaime said...

Great post, Crystal!!! You're SOOOOOOO lucky you get to go to Hawaii!!! Nice compromise!!!

Aaron [air] said...

your hubby commenting made me laugh. Too funny. I love the system of compromise. It also works beautifully in our home. Great job dear!♥

jakell said...

Too funny. Love it. I am not sure about the co bull but love the cougar and the elk. But I grew up with all that around my home. I actually just got home lastnight from my once in a lifetime bull elk hunt on the Fishlake. There were not very many big bulls but I did kill a decent 6 point and it will be hanging on our wall soon too :)

Hawaii huh? Don't be surprised if you get a stowaway in your bag. hee hee

mintifresh said...

Man! I wish our compromises went that well! I'd take some nice taxidermy animals for that car and Hawaii any day!

Young Wife said...

That's a fabulous compromise! DH wanted to paint his home office black. I said no way. So he said if he couldn't do that, he wanted a media room. We slept in the guest bedroom for over a year because he turned our master bedroom into a media room. :)

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Although I like the couch and car? I still would freak if I had to have those on my wall! What do you get if you hang them in a closet?

Chanel said...

That is the kind of compromise that I like.

You are seriously a girl after my own heart! I know all about the compromise game...and it can be worked rather well if you know what you're doing...clearly you do!! LOVE your taste in decor!

Chic Mamá said...

love the way you compromise. =D

& I'm loving the decor as well. Why are all the good stores in Utah?? lol

CK said...

Wow. You are gracious, Crystal! I am not sure there is much that would persuade me to put those animals on my wall! But, I bet you guys had a fun time working out the terms of agreement ;) Very cool!

Thanks for catching up with me through blogging! I always have fun visiting here! Looks like you guys had a great time in San Diego at the conference. You should have taken a quick mini trip up past LA to visit! ;)
