Bright and Beachy Breakfast Nook

You guys, having both girls in school is insane.  My productivity levels are completely through the roof, it's like I completely forgot how much time running errands can be when you aren't buckling and unbuckling and holding hands in parking lots and putting kids into carts and out of carts and pulling off the side of carts or chasing down rogue children pushing carts, you get the picture.  I'm not going to lie, being out of the baby phase, and the young toddler phase for that matter, is kind of awesome.  I'm starting to feel like an independent being.  Of course, after those 4 hours of freedom, I can't wait to pick up those adorable smiling faces and get back to a day of good ol fashioned referee and short order cook, but for those of you in the thick of it?  It really does go too fast, and it does get better.

Moving on,  I'm currently taking a minute from packing boxes, donating toys when the girls aren't home, and making list after list of things to do before we move, so I thought I'd share some thoughts here.  Of course, I have so many things I never shared from summer, but they might just get lost in the mix.  I definitely need to do a sister update because we are in a real sweet spot, and the girls have some really cute and wacky quirks that are worth documenting.

However, I thought I'd share a little inspo board I put together for our new kitchen's breakfast nook.  The house has a open great room with awesome windows that stream the best light and high ceilings.  The kitchen is completely open and the 'eat in kitchen' area is definitely more of a nook since it wont fit a table much bigger than one for the four of us and is tucked in the corner.    The house is only 15 years old so the things it needs is some fresh paint and some tiny updates to reflect our style.

We will be using our old kitchen table in our dining room and getting a new one for the kitchen.  A round pedestal table is the best shape for the space and I've always loved the Serena & Lily bistro chairs, just not the price.  Especially when Kenley still has a terrible habit of standing on chairs while eating.  Thankfully, since the cafe chairs are all weather, I can just hose them down when they inevitably get gunked up with peanut butter and cream cheese.  I also will probably put a seat cushion on her seat to keep her from sticking her foot through the woven wicker.

I'm hoping to find a solid wood table on craigslist once we get down there and we already have a few painters to come out for quotes right away.  Can't wait to share more!
