New Addition

One year ago, we started renovating Aaron's great grandfathers home to make it ours! I was in & out of stores! Paint, Carpet, Molding & Framing, Mirrors, Door knobs, more paint, tile, curtains, henge's, etc. There was so much I was picking up which left little money for things that I wanted rather than things we needed. Left behind, was Pappy's kitchen table!  It wasn't a horrible table but my heart wanted something different. I found this particular table, very simple, located at my favorite store Hobby Lobby. I fell in love but Aaron dared me to buy it. We didn't need it. We had a table! Sooooo, when all this wedding planning started, I informed Mom about this table & four bar stools at Hobby Lobby. It was one sale & had been for one whole year. I've wanted it, but knew it wasn't on the top of our things to do/get list. It would be a great shower gift for everyone to pitch in on. Hobby Lobby does not have a registry, bummer!

Somewhere in the time when my Mom was in New York the week before our Engagement Party, she shared this want for this table & stools with my Aunt P, Uncle J & her children. Our party invitation stated
"Your presence is their presents" meaning, NO GIFTS. However, they disagreed!

So, a BIG thanks to my Hernandez family in NY for helping our home become one step closer to exactly the way we would love to have it.
We LOVE our new table, and Aaron agrees... It looks much better!

Aaron leaves this evening to go back to Santee, for the weekend for more fishing time! Exciting for him! :)
I am staying back. I hate it when he is not home, I never sleep good! On the brighter side, I'm looking forward to a few wedding events, and a more relaxing weekend! Maybe a little "ladies" time!

I've seen this in the HobLob and I fell in love too!

I love it! We thought about bought buying the exact same one from Hobby Lobby, but instead we went to an antique store and found a table, because our house is a little more rustic. Enjoy it!

I must say that is a lovely set...I would love that in my breakfast nook. Maybe you don't need it now, but really it's a great set, and it will fit in anywhere.

Love the table! I really like the dark colour wood, and the chairs are super nice!

Nice to see you get the table you want! :D
