About three years ago Michael and I went shopping at one of our favorite stores IKEA and saw this kitchen table set. This is an image I found of the kitchen table online.

We absolutely loved it. However when we bought it there was one little problem. Can you spot it?

Here's a hint.....

Ugh! Our chairs don't match! Of course that was never our plan. When we bought the table Ikea told us that they did not have any matching chairs in stock but since it was a popular table the employee promised us that they should have a new batch delievered in no time. So we went ahead and bought the table planning to buy the matching bar stools later. Weeks later, I stopped by Ikea again to buy the stools and they were still out of stock. So a month or so later I stopped by again and still no chairs. But this time I got the sad news from a different Ikea employee. Ikea had discontinued the Ensta Line and we would not be able to find matching stools. I was disappointed but Michael and I realized there wasn't much we could do so we bought some stools that would do the job even if they didn't match. But there's good news! For Christmas, Michael's parents searched around and found some matching chairs for our table!!! I love them so much more than the orginal stools too! Thanks Julie and Larry! So here's a picture of our new matching table and chairs! Ta da!

P.S. I painted the wall in the background! I love how it turned out.

They also bought and painted another piece of furniture for us which I am really excited about. It hasn't arrived yet so I'll have post a picture of it later. Also, I decided to include a picture of our new couch we bought a while ago. I have had some requests to post a picture of it so my family members can see it.

Also, just for fun I decided to post a couple pictures of Kalai's room. When I was pregnant with Kalai I never really got to "nest" since I knew we were going to move one month later. So since I never posted a picture of Kalai's nursery I decided now would be as good time as any.

Last but not least I have to post a couple of pictures of my cute baby girl!
