Weekend Update

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend! Ours was great! On Easter we met up with several friends and had a nice lunch.

During holidays it makes Jon and me realize how much we do miss our families. I was so sad to miss my nieces and nephew hunting Easter eggs and getting together with my family at my grandparents for a big meal. I missed putting together an Easter bunny nest (a tradition in Jon's family) and waking up Easter morning with lots of wonderful goodies.

But the fact that I have Jon on this Easter in Germany means more to me than anything. I am very lucky to have him in my life.

Well, all the gooshiness aside,
Saturday Jon and I decided it was time to buy some much needed things for our home.

When we first moved here we bought a new dining room table but had trouble finding chairs that we liked. So for 6 months now we have been without dining room chairs. We used fold out chairs and our computer chair to sit on.

This weekend we decided it was time to get out there and find the perfect chairs for our table. (nothing says redneck like an old rolling computer chair at the dinner table!)

We went to Ikea and found nothing suitable for a dining room table. But we did find a rug for our living room.

I think it matches our place spot on.
With no luck at Ikea, we headed for Mann Mobilia knowing we'd probably have a better chance of finding a more suitable set of chairs.

And we did.........
We completely lucked out, these chairs were on sale and I really think they go perfectly with our table. Plus they are super comfortable to sit on.

Nothing like a little furniture shopping to make your entire weekend.
I feel like our house is finally coming along. There are only a couple more pieces of furniture we need to make our home complete. Now if I could only just blink and my entire house be clean, that would really make my day complete!!

I hope you all have a great week!
