Trigger = pulled

So, it’s been an annoyingly emotional week for me. I won’t get into why. Ok, fine. Twist my arm. I will. It’s just because I’ve had two doctors’s appointments, a board meeting tomorrow, I’m feeling a little overwhelmed at work, Bear started her first week of official preschool and I had to cancel a much-needed haircut because of the aforementioned board meeting. Anyway, I know: suck it up, Kate. So, because there is no therapy like retail therapy, I pulled the trigger on a sideboard. Just kidding. I mean, I did buy a sideboard (Mom, we can totally still go to Milwaukee! In fact, I’d love to!), but there are definitely better therapies than retail. I realized, though, that it’s been driving me so crazy that I spend way too much time every day going back and forth between the options and staring at the one in our dining room when I come home. So, there were a couple of deals that came together and I hit a few buttons and, finally, the big one: “submit order.” Anyone want to guess which one made the cut?

    So sorry about the stressful week. Hope things improve. I am guessing the IKEA sideboard?

    Good guess, but no!

    My first choice?

    Unfortunately no. That’s my favorite one, too, but our dining room table has a very similar wood top so I think it’d be too much of that kind of wood. Ultimately, I’d like to do a white tulip table, so it’d work beautifully then but who knows if that’ll ever happen. So, I pulled the trigger on the white west elm one. I’ve been so in love with white furniture lately. It was 20% off and I had $75 off, too. Plus, I opted for the 12-month 0% financing so that I can pay it off slowly. Basically, I made money, right?!
