Here is me, trying not to kill myself retrieving the two ton Kitchen Aid:
Here are the spoils of such a daring and selfless act:
But, in other news, we finally bought chairs (now I can stand on one to retrieve the stuff on top of the fridge!) to go with our huge dining table...this is really worth celebrating because we seriously went for months without any chairs and just this huge table begging to be sat at.
We got rid of nearly all of our furniture during the big move last February and are slowly repurchasing things. If you've ever shopped for nice dining chairs, you know how pricey they can get, and so I am happy to report a killer steal of a deal from craigslist: 6 chairs, solid wood, nearly perfect for less than the price of one brand new one. Good things come to those who wait, and stand while eating for months on end because the kids get the barstools. Ahhh, you will find me sitting at the table, relishing in the quaintness of family dinners and game nights.
It doesn't take a huge thing to make my day. :) And....we can now host dinner parties without the BYOC (bring your own chair) requirement. Classy.
