A New Dining Room Table!!!

Oh goodness...was I ever thrilled yesterday. Before going to tan (for my sister's wedding)...I stopped in a cute country store in town. Just looked around for a bit....(drooling..LOL)...and saw the table pictured! I LOVED it....and it was a great price as well! I have been wanting a table we could all sit around more comfortably...the oval one we had before was hard to seat 5 at.

It even has storage! The box area under the table opens up and provides storage!! I will probably put place mats, table runners and table cloths in there! :)

I would also like to get (at some point) one or two benches for the longer sides!!! YIPPEE! I am just so excited about it!!!!

The girls have been laying quite well lately! I got 15 eggs yesterday!!! I was really thrilled about that. I love when we have more eggs than we need...because then I can give them away! Sometimes we sell them...but sometimes we just give them to Chris's parents! I can't even describe what a blessing it is to always have fresh eggs! :)

I had things planned for today...but Jaxson has a fever and a cough...so today may be more of a down day. I have things to get done still....but things will probably move slower. Getting him to take the cough syrup is extremely difficult...luckily getting him to take children's tylenol meltaways isn't as hard. So he is taking something for the fever....hopefully I can get him to take some more cough syrup to help with his cough too. Please remember him in your prayers today. It's never fun when a child is sick!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate each visit and comment! :)

  3. What a neat table, I've never seen one with the storage underneath! Hope little Jaxson gets to feeling better and love the pics of the kids in their Easter clothes:)

  4. That table is fantastic Katy!
    I can see why you snatched that up. I love furniture that does double duty like that...storage and function!
    Have a great week!
    Hope Jaxson is feeling better soon!

  5. Looks so inviting. I'm coming over for coffee ;)

  6. Love the new table. As soon as I saw it I thought how great it would look with benches! Great minds think alike. lol

  9. Love your new table.. don't believe I've ever saw one with a box under it.. how neat!!
    Hope Jaxson feels better soon.

  10. Oh that is too cute! I'd love the extra storage too.

    I love the look of fresh eggs in a basket! I wonder if it's cause my Mom had those as decorations growing up. LOL IDK

    Aww poor baby. Hope he takes his medicine and is feeling better soon.

    Also thinking about your Uncle. How's he doin'?

  11. Love the new table! Sorry that Jaxon is sick today. I have always had a terrible time taking any kind of liquid medicine. I just found, on saturday, Robitussin cough tablets. Maybe they make something for kids, too.

    Have a great day, Denise

    Poor Jaxson!! Alot of people are getting that same bug, I used to have a heard time getting my son to take cough medicine too, he would get so worked up about it that he would actually throw it back up!!...Thank God those days are done!!LOL Hope you have a wonderful day!~Wendy
