Fit For a Family

First on the list of decorating is the dining room. It needs to be a family dining room that is going to be used a lot. So a kid friendly table is a must.

So we have been looking at dining room tables a lot lately. The one I have recently found I really like and so far is my top runner. It is from furniturerow.com and I have found there things are a tad bit cheaper. I am wondering though if I would feel that it is not great quality.

I find this table nice because you can actually fit up to 8 people at it. Which we plan on having more kids in the future, so extra seating is a necessity. A questionable thing is the height, it is actually like counter height. It is a concern only because we do have little ones. But, I am leaning more towards counter height for any table. What do you think?

I am open to any suggestions, so send some my way.

All Grown Up

Jess and I are in the process of buying house. I am very excited, but it is a HUGE deal! I have been up to my head in different idea books and magazines. I want to make sure every aspect of the house is thought out. I feel like my style has changed since decorating our recent home (for the better)!

So, I am looking for some input on furniture, colors, and design things. I am trying to make it more "grown up" but child proof at the same time. So I will be posting pictures of different things for different rooms. Hoping to start the dining room first then work into the living room. But who knows if I can keep my mind on just one room.

But with all of this on my plate I am still a mom of 2 beautiful girls. When growing up I never would have thought I would be a mom of 2, a wife and a home owner! It is a crazy life I am living but I love every minute.
