A few updates on things I've blogged about recently...

1. Five days after the marathon... and my legs are feeling great. I think I'll even go for a (easy) run this weekend. For the big question of "will you do another?" You better believe it! For now, I'm happy to focus on summer triathlon training. Nate is already gearing up to train for a half Ironman in the fall!

It was soooo good (and is now soooo gone!).

2. We decided to go with this:
It gives me a serious craving for days like this:

3. After reading all of your suggestions, I've decided on going with this plan for my dining room:

My inspiration file was bursting with pictures of white chairs so I decided that I'll go with the look that I'm drawn to. The table is going to get a deep, dark stain which might or might not look good with the color of the buffet behind it... we'll just have to find out when the time comes.

Without any long runs planned for my weekend, I should be able to knock out some  projects. I can't wait to share them with you!

P.S. chair, fabric, mirror, light, rug

I LOVE that you are going with white chairs. O! and I absolutely love those carpet squares from Flor! That place rocks my socks!!

Ok, first of all, I'm LOVING the plans for the dining room. I already know it's going to be the swankyest (?) dining room around the blogosphere when it's done.

Second, you and Nate are crazy impressive atheletes! A triathalon?!?! How cool is that?!

Can't wait to see the dining room come together! Love the choices!

I think the dark table will look great with the buffet. The dark color will contrast nicely with the lighter wood of the buffet and the surrounding wood floors. And imagine how a bright floral centerpiece would look against that table. The white chairs are going to be refreshing against the dark carpet. Overall, I think the composition is balanced and will work. And congrats, of course on the marathon. You're awesome.

love the fabric, it will look great against the white chairs!

I'm a big fan of Flor, too, we've used it in several ways (as area rugs, wall-to-wall)

I love reading your thoughts and ideas! Keep them coming!!
