So for the first time in our married life we have a set of matching dinnerware. It's about time, right? And since there's 8 pieces of everything, that means everybody will match at all times!! Right now we have this crazy mishmash collection of dishes and lately so many of them have broken that our selection for plates has gotten pathetic.
So anyway, I got this set of boring ol' solid white dishes at Kohl's for a great price and I think it will do us just fine for the next couple of years. We'll see how many we can get broken in a short amount of time. Christmastime isn't a likely time to be buying things for yourself, but I find the sales to be so great that it's actually the perfect time to get stuff you need for the rest of the year. The eight mugs that it came with will be going directly to Goodwill on the next trip. I already have all the coffee cups that I like to use, and we don't have room to hang on to that many mugs that we'll never use. Ever.
And Dave.... ever the realist, says "I don't know why you're all excited about "table settings" when what exactly is going to go on them?? Fish sticks?" LOL. I could have been offended, but he's right. One thing at a time.
