What the...?!

So this is us yesterday. Nice and warm. Fine day outside. I read a book on the patio while AJ played with the bubble machine.


And this is what it looked like today:


Seriously? What is up?!?!? I have never seen snowflakes this big. And I'm from Salt Lake City! Give me a break.

Good thing I have a new kitchen table to cheer me up:



That's right folks. After 8 years of marraige, I finally have a real dining table to call my own. We've been using our $100 farm table way too long. The chairs were seriously so wobbly you were taking your life into your hands just to sit down for breakfast.

Before:



After:



We got an AMAZING deal on it and I luckily had enough of my scrapbooking funditure set aside to make the purchase. We even sprung for extra chairs so that when we put the leaf in, it will seat 8. Just imagine - now I can have people over for dinner and not ask half of them to sit on the couch. Move over Martha! (Or pull up a chair. I have eight, you know.)

Yeah for you! I think that is soooo awesome. It's so great to move up to a table that seats more than your own family. It is so gorgeous! I seriously think that rocks that your scrapbooking money paid for it. Very cool!

Love how AJ is styling in the sunshine- shades, headwrap, ... she's got it. :)

I thought the table was new... but I couldn't tell because I was distracted by the beauty that was book club! :)

Seriously, you house and the way you pull everything together is so lovely.
