FINALLY

Cabe and I are in the process of trying to replace our furniture, since most of it is old and / or.......I don't love it. Or like it. At all.

Since we live in an area with (ahhh!) Ikea, we can slowly begin the process. We found a dining table and chairs that we really loved the first time we went, but soon found out that the chairs were back ordered. That was oh.....three or four months ago. Every time I called to check on it, I'd get "Try back in two weeks!", and "Try back in two weeks!", and "Um, ya know, why don't you try back in two weeks?". We weren't getting anywhere. They finally came in this week and we drove up today to pick it up. We were so excited we practically ran through the displays to the massive warehouse. That's the thing about Ikea....so smart.....you've got to walk through the entire store to get out, there is no going back! You MUST see the cute bedding, the fun little organizers, the cookware, the kids toys (for later.....I swear....), and the outdoor furniture before you can check out.


Sure, Ikea is cheap, but everything comes in boxes for "easy shipping" and uh, you've got to put it together. So a manly man comes in handy....


And look! He even follows directions! IT'S A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE.
Oh, and Bear, never more than a few millimeters away...
Oh! And look! Basketball shorts! For the first time in the 6 or 7 years I've known him!

One table, one chair down....three more to go....

I.Am.In.Love. We broke it in by eating freshly steamed artichokes. I can't think of a better way to end the day.

Wow, so modern looking, I like it. Then you will just have to take it apart when you move. HA! :) You never took me to Ikea either, I am putting it on the list for next time.
