So, I'm going to be honest here for a second: I don't have super high class taste when it comes to a lot of things in life. I'd rather shop at thrift shops, find great deals; I mean, it took me forever to spend anything on a quality pair of shoes (and those were for my wedding!). However, there's one thing in life, I would be willing to spend a lot of money on (we're talking silly, ridiculous amounts of money): a kitchen table. Yes, you heard me right. I think perhaps it's because we grew up around our mother's and grandmother's kitchen table, but I can't imagine not having a proper, giant, wooden, farm/barn like kitchen table to start my marriage with. I know, ridic, right? However, my taste in tables runs on the side of things that I certainly cannot afford, what's a gal to do when she becomes obsessed with kitchen tables (as in, does night Google searches for "wooden kitchen tables") but can't afford the table of her dreams? Well, she finds the Ikea equivalent, that's what! Right now we have an Ikea table and chairs, but they're Eric's "bachelor" table from his days in Connecticut...and they happen to be a very small set. In our kitchen, the table seems dwarfed, and I always feel like I'm sitting down to a tea party with small children, instead of at our sturdy kitchen table. I've even stopped using a cutting board on the table...whoops! We're getting a new one soon, aren't we? Aren't we?! Is anyone else out there obsessed with wooden kitchen tables? Please tell me you are!
