The Newest Additions to our Family

tree_table.jpgWe would like to introduce the two newest members of our family... Palm Tree & Coffee Table. We have a way of naming things after their proper names (which is especially funny to those of you that know our pet names for each other). Palm Tree weighs 10 lbs. 9 oz. and Coffee Table weighs 200 lbs. 2 oz. Now, I have determined that blogs are more exciting the more personal we get. So, Coffee Table originally cost $196 and we got it for $88. Whenever we go to furniture stores, we go straight to the scratch and dent section. We found this one at Factory Direct (the "other" Mathis brother, Roger, owns it). We bought some stain and a wax pen, I fixed it up and it looks as good as new.

Palm Tree hails from Dillard's Department store at Penn Square Mall. We had some gift cards there and determined that a palm tree would be awesome. Plus, it is a good-looking palm tree, better than those you find at other stores. We are proud of Palm Tree and we determined that on our budget it would be a long time before we go on vacation, so we brought vacation to us. If you're in the same boat, you are welcome to vacation at our house--we'll buy some sand and decorate the porch in fine Caribbean style, complete with Palm Tree.
In other news, we contacted our realtor in Memphis and she is the nicest lady in the world. She helped out a lot of other couples going to Harding Grad as well as the Harding Grad recruiter, Mark Parker, and his family. It just made us more excited about the move. I mean getting a house would solve "all" of our problems, right?
