Our New Adventure -- T minus 3 Days...

and counting!!

hard to get a straight picture while taking it out the car window :)
We close Friday!!


(cue angel choirs)

We've been doing some shopping lately, too.

A few weekends ago, we went to IKEA and I got the cute chandy for the laundry room!

Totes adorbs, right? And only $40!!!

The boys went with us ... and tried out EVERY. LAST. SITTING. SURFACE.

We also found a CUTE new sectional (Kivik) that we are pondering for the family room:

It's huge and very similar to the Karlstad we have now (WHY did they discontinue that wonderful thing?!). We're thinking about moving Karl to the play room upstairs and getting the Kivik for the family room downstairs.

We're also trying to figure out what to do downstairs for the TV. This is a possibility, but not sure:

I think we'll have to live there for a while and let the house tell us what it wants. :)

We're also thinking about the Hemnes dressers for the boys' rooms. I'd love one in navy blue, but right now they only offer black, white and some red-orange color. So that's on the "ponder list" too.

We've also been looking at fridges, and found one by Samsung that we really liked at Lowe's about 4 weeks ago. It was on sale for a really good price, but we couldn't buy it then because they wouldn't hold it for us that long.

So we went back this weekend to purchase it, and lo and behold, the price had gone up $700.

Really, Lowes? That's how you're going to play us? After all of the $$$ we've given to you over the years??

So we went looking online, and came across another fridge (Kenmore) that we liked even better and that got higher ratings. But it was a tad more than the Samsung, so we weren't sure.

Last night we went to our local Sears outlet to look around. They had the little sister of the Kenmore fridge we wanted (and the same Samsung we'd picked out at Lowe's for the same price ... interesting).

We asked if they had the exact one we wanted. "Nope, but we can order it online." Ok!

So we ordered the Kenmore online in the Sears store, and got a discount and free shipping, so it ended up being LESS than the Samsung we originally wanted. (no picture of it ... sorry!)

And, cherry on top -- it'll be delievered the day we move in.

Definitely a God-thing there!

We also went to World Market (a personal favorite) this past weekend just to look around, and found these sweet curtains for the kitchen!

And they were ON SALE! And machine washable (which is a necessity in a house with two boys and two dogs).

Segue ...

I want a round table for our breakfast room, and have been looking online for months. But each one I like is $1000+.

Umm ... NOPE.

We have 6 chairs already for our breakfast table, but our current table is old and rectangular -- and in the rectangular kitchen, it would just be too much. (Side note: I'm thinking about repurposing the old table for my desk in the new office!)

So I want something that would seat at least 4 (preferably 6), has a natural, distressed feel, and doesn't cost more than my car. Is that so much to ask?

Then I came across this beauty at WM:

$100 off, 15% off coupon and free shipping?!?!

Yes, please.

Another segue ...

That HUGE island needs some seating and I've been back and forth about what I want in there. I've been checking Pinterest and found lots of things I like, but they've all been super expensive. (Seriously, people? $300+ for a counter stool that will be wearing the remnants of Lucky Charms every day of its life? Just no.)

While randomly surfing the web last week, I found these lovelies on Wayfair:


The color name is "Dream Blue." Well if that's not perfect, I don't know what is!

And ... ready for the price?

$62.50 each.

We've also picked out a dining table at World Market, but my wallet has told me in NO UNCERTAIN TERMS that I need to slow my roll when it comes to shopping.

Maybe I should've named this post "Buy All The Things!"
