That Weekend We Randomly Bought A Kitchen Table

Monday, April 4, 2016

I'm going to be annoying and skip right over explaining that title - keep reading and it'll make sense (or just skip to Saturday happenings ;))

We had a fantastic weekend at home and I feel like we got a lot accomplished in a short amount of time! Friday, we were too tired to grill out and the weather was questionable so we set out in hopes of finding a Chinese takeout place near our house (we found a great place by our apt but hadn't tried for our house yet). We found a delicious place and right next door is a cute ice cream shop that we'll have to visit someday. We did steal the table outside of the ice cream shop to eat our Chinese al fresco since it was so nice outside. Afterwards, we ran into Publix to pick up some food to grill Saturday and made it home just in time for it to start pouring rain. We watched Jack Reacher and it was actually really good!

My friend's husband was camping this weekend so Saturday morning, we invited a friend and myself over to make breakfast and watch Hot Rod. Afterwards, I headed home and Stephen and I went to a local nursery to look at some plants for our yard. It was sprinkling so we threw on our rain jackets and wandered around. The nursery was amazing - it had so many plants and it was decorated so adorable. We got some great ideas and then Stephen gladly obliged to stop by Hobby Lobby to look at their pineapple collection before heading over to Target.

On our way to the mall, we passed by a furniture store that was having some big sales so we decided to pop in and see what they had. They had a fantastic farmhouse table and 6 chairs that we ended up getting for a great deal. We are definitely not the type of people to make a purchase like this on the same day as seeing it but the deal was too good to pass up and we've been keeping our eyes out for a new table set and haven't found one for a good price. Before finding this table, we decided we were going to make our own table but we did have some reservations - it was going to be a lot of work with all the staining, how would we get chairs to match unless buying all fabric chairs and what happens if we mess up? After seeing this deal, we decided it wasn't worth all the hassle... so now we've got a new table coming on Friday!!

After buying the table, we ran to Hobby Lobby and I was really disappointed in their pineapple collection so we headed over to Target. We picked up some very exciting things i.e. toilet paper but we did find some Easter bowls on sale for $1.19 each and Easter candy that was 70% off. I found the cutest outdoor pillow but didn't end up getting it - maybe next time. We also ran to Homegoods and Stephen found a few things, I found nothing lol

Afterwards, we headed home and even though it was getting late, we decided to grill out. Stephen grilled our whole meal and it was amazing! He even made fresh garlic in olive oil which tasted amazing on Italian bread. Dinner was pretty late so we caught up on some Chrisley Knows Best and headed to bed.

Sunday, we went to church and then to Publix before coming home and working in the yard for a little while. The weather was BEAUTIFUL Sunday so we took full advantage - yard work and a nice walk in the evening.

I hope everyone had a great weekend as well :)

    1. Thanks!! I can't wait to get it in the house! We found it at this warehouse-like place in Melbourne ( this is the one we ended up buying (

      I'm realizing that our painting and chandiler what we have in there now don't really match the style now... lol
