I bought a new...

dining table this weekend. Here's a little clue as to what it looks like...


Are you catching that live edge action?! Yummy.

So, here's the story. There's always a story, right? Our current dining table is too large for the house we're attempting to buy. Before we leave Austin, I felt it was a must to stop in my favorite store, Four Hands Furniture Outlet. Last week I measured a table but sadly learned it was the exact same length as our existing table. No dice. 

This weekend we were out and about and I asked John if we could stop in 4Hands so I could ask if the table even came in a shorter length. Lo and behold, when we walked in guess what was sitting there waiting on us? The exact same table in a shorter length. Yay!

But wait, we haven't exactly secured our next house yet and things are going slower than they should with our closing, so what if we buy this table and the house falls through?

I decided to ask the sales guy if there were any more in the back so I'd have peace of mind that I could wait on it and not make a dumb mistake. I explained that we haven't closed on our house yet and I didn't want to jinx anything.

He looked me straight in the eye and this is what he said, I kid you not..."Someone sure is letting the enemy get ahold of them and make them doubt, now aren't they?" I stood there dumbfounded. Had this complete stranger just called me out?! Yep. And, he was right, I've let satan rob my joy this last week. I went from proclaiming a miracle, to letting a few set backs during the closing process cause me to allow stress and worry creep back in. Man, what a shame.

I had a quick confession session with the 4Hands salesman then made my way to the cash register. ;) Can't wait to see our new table in the house God's preparing for us!
