My New Dining Table and Chairs

We are a small family of three. So having a small table and four chairs was not a big deal; except when we wanted to invite people over for dinner. When guests would come, we had to bring other chairs to the table (the computer chair, the living room chair, the tiny chair that sits in the closet...) and our elbows would be touching throughout the meal. We also had to leave the food on the stove and kitchen counter tops. But don't get me wrong. I still loved when I had friends or family over. I did everything without complaining. I just happy that I don't have to do that anymore :) Last week we bought this new Bedford Dinning Set. We can seat 6 people now (or more, if we bring all those chairs from around the house, too). The table also has a butterfly leaf that folds within it, so I have space to put the food on the table. We had fun assembling it. I am also grateful that this one is made of solid wood, which means IT WILL LAST FOREVER! (or something like that).

Now, I would like to get a rug to put underneath it, but I don't know if I have enough space for that... Without a rug it is easier to clean all the food my 2 year old son spills around. With a rug I won't be annoyed with the noises of moving chairs and the kitchen might look cuter. Hmmm...what to do what to do?!
What would you do?

Anybody Here?

Well, I don't think so. Since no one answered my question :)

But why would someone visit my blog if I never update it?!

So, I decided to keep this thing going. Now that I am not working and just being a mommy and wife, maybe I'll have time to share all the wonderful things I approve in my life.

I hope you hear/read from me soon.

Will Zumba be approved?

I have heard of this ZUMBA thing for a while now. Everybody seems to love it.

I was checking the non-credits classes BYU-I offers to the community and found out that they teach zumba fitness classes now. So I had to registered myself :) I am excited! I'll be doing it twice a week really early in the morning. Maybe this will help to be less grumpy in the morning [or it could go the other way...;)]. I should take a picture of myself now to compare to the results at the end of this journey.

This is what the class description says: The Zumba program has easy to follow moves featuring interval training sessions where fast and slow Latin and international rhythms are combined to create a one of a kind fitness program. You will want to work out, love working out, and get hooked. Achieve long term benefits while experiencing an absolute blast in one exciting hour of calorie burning, body energizing fun movements meant to engage and captivate. Join the exercise PARTY.
I am ready to party!
But here is a question: What should I wear for the class?

Loving my new bag

I can take my new bag almost everywhere I go. It is big enough for my wallet, sunglasses case, diaper/wipes/pad for my son and some other little items, you know...I'm a woman! you could find some random things in there :) But it is not a huge bag either. I just love the style with the little flower detail.
Today I had some errands to run, and since I had to take my son with me, I picked this comfortable outfit out of my closet.
ShadeClothing Tshirt - Outlet Clothing ($3.99)
Calvin Klein Jeans - Outlet Clothing ($7.99)
Flip Flops - SapatuMania [Shoe Store in Brazil] ($6)
Marina Brown bag - DownEast Outfitters ($20)
Polarized LizWear Sunglasses - Sam's Club ($30)

Secret shopper

I finally went this week to Down East Outfitters here in town to put the gift card they sent me to use. If you don't know what I am talking about, please refer to the post below. I really wanted to buy a swimsuit for when I go to CA in October, but they didn't have any. I tried on some dresses, but couldn't find "the one". So, this is what I bought:

This super cute bag (which was on sale for $20)
And two of this - a creme and a light pink one (I know I don't wear pink, but it doesn't really look like it's pink ok) {they were also on sale for $5 each, but I paid only $2,50 for the second one- buy two items and get the 3rd half off sale}

They called me!

Last March I entered the DownEast Customer Service Experience program. I just had to send them and email with some information about me and about the store. They called me today and they will be sending me a gift card and form I will need to fill. This is what I'll have to do: "Each store visit will take approximately 20 minutes to complete and 15 minutes or less to send the email summary. You will be provided with a certain dollar amount to spend in the store each visit, and the best part can keep what you buy! So you will get DownEast clothing for free!" Isn't that AWESOME! Well, I'm excited. Now I just need to think of what am I going to buy:) Maybe it will be this swim suit or maybe this dress, but I also need some tees and camis. This bag is screaming at me "buy me, buy me" haha What to do???
