Your Butts Can Thank Me Later

I've been looking for the perfect dining room chairs for some time now and have felt like I was never going to find any. There were some that I liked, but that I had slight issues with. Ultimately, those slight issues would have sent me into crazy OCD overdrive, so I knew they wouldn't work.

Yesterday, in the rain, my mom and I drove to four different stores to look for a new dining room for me. I found one set that would have been lovely...but for $3,500 WITH a discount. I'm sorry, I know that's probably normal, but I can't imagine spending that much even with my tax return on it's way.

When I was about to drop off my mom, she mentioned that she had a 15% discount to Ballard Designs and so we took another look there...and that's where I fell in love.

In 8 LONG weeks, I'll have six delightful new chairs that will grow with me and are classic enough to blend in with all sorts of different looks should they need to - and I'm ecstatic - truly elated about my new chairs. It's just too bad that Ballard doesn't offer same day delivery. Ha!

Now, if I could just find the perfect table... {and yes, I can feel my mom rolling her eyes at me!}

If the picture is the chair - I'm in love!

Keep your eyes peeled on Craigslist - sometimes you come across the best things on there.

I feel you on not wanting a dining table set that costs that much money!!! I can't imagine!

Gorgeous chair! But the way my kids eat I would be afraid to own something so nice.
