Can I just say before I get into the Ikea Field Trip that I can’t wait to meet my new nephew. I’m so excited to see him especially since he was just born today. I hope my sister is back on her feet soon and that she can get some much needed rest.
(Taken with my Coolpix without the flash – set on an obliging shelf). No, I did NOT come home with all of these green coffee cups – but I was tempted to come home with some of these:
With the wood floors finished (as of today ;-)) and looking SO GOOD – some of my old throw rugs were just awful – and were promptly thrown out with the garbage this morning. I decided to make the pilgrimage to Ikea – I haven’t been there in probably 20 years. Needless to say, I was like a kid in a candy store. Everything was so reasonably priced. Here is some of the loot I came home with:
Instant lighting over my computer desk for less than $10…
A new, elevated dog food and water bowl for Zachary – he’s such a big boy, and he’s gettin’ too old for all that bending over – the rug is new too.
The last thing I got was for the outside – this beautiful lantern:
I did get one other thing – but I have to put it together, so I’ll post that photo when I’m done assembling.
