Big Tex and our dining room

RIP Big Tex

If you've been to the State Fair of Texas, (or as Kennedy likes to call it, 'The Outdoor Wal-mart'), then you've met Big Tex.

Well, he burned down today. While it's sad to see a 60 year old statue that changes clothes every year, I have been enjoying all the distasteful jokes rolling through on my Facebook news feed. Keep 'em coming, my inappropriate friends!

In honor of Big Tex, here is a link to a "vintage" blog post from the last time I went to the fair. It was in 2009?!?! This is shameful. I blame Kennedy. He literally said "I am never coming back here again," after only visiting the fair ONCE. Lame.

In other news, I have made plans for us this weekend, after seeing a beautiful dining room on Pinterest today.

Not sure where this image's original source comes from...Sorry about that!

Kennedy's on his way home now, and I plan on forcing him to take me to Lowe's so I can get that paint color. I also think I might have him frame out the bay window with some trim in our current dining room to beef it up. Also. I want that table. Like, NOW.

Pretty much, I plan on copying this room as much as possible.

I also just noticed that we have a tray ceiling in there, so MAYBE we should put crown moulding on it to look like my inspiration photo?

We, as a rule, do not use the dining room. The reason is because we can't see the TV from there. But I walk through there at least 392 times a day, and while that color is great for the Halloween, it's got to go. It's way dark in there.  

Tonight, I just have a few finishing touches to put on the nursery and then I can share it's splendor with all of you! When I'm done, it will be the only room in the house that is completely done and decorated.
