Finally a grown-up?

What do you get when you aren't training for Ironman and are getting enough sleep? Apparently, you act like a grown-up and start buying stuff for your house (after living there for 2.5 years).

We purchased a used treadmill from our friend Rob. We are going to head to Ikea soon to get some items to transform our now office/workout room just into a workout room. The office will now be upstairs once we move the desk up there. I'm excited to be able to do a brick in winter without leaving the comfort of my home - we'll set the Computrainer up right next to the treadmill.

The big purchase though was a new dining room set from Arhaus. We got a table that will expand to seat 8 comfortably, 8 chairs (of course) and a buffet. Check it out.








We also looked at new dinnerware (I haven't bought new dishes since 1991 and those were $24 for a set of 8 from Hills Department Store) and paint. I may finally have an accent wall! I've always wanted one of those. Now, we may have to entertain more often! We even stimulated the economy at the same time! I feel like such a grown-up! : )
