IKEA finds...

We are back from IKEA and ready for the week. Well, I guess we are ready for the week. It's Monday again. ;( I really dislike Mondays because Mark is gone soooo long. He works his late night in the clinic on Monday's so it's almost Wyatt's bedtime by the time he gets home. Oh well, it could be worse I guess.

Anyway we had a crazy bust weekend. Nothing different than normal sadly enough. Mark, my dad, and I all left for IKEA in Friday night. We were able to do a few things Friday evening before they closed. We spent the night in a hotel near IKEA and started our shopping the minute they opened Saturday morning. We shopped till we dropped. Ha! Then we had to load the car...in the HEAT. When I say "we" I pretty much mean my dad and Mark. They are such troopers. There is no way we could do this every month and be as efficiante without my dad's help! Thanks pops!

We got home around mid-night Saturday night and began unloading the truck about 7am Saturday morning. We had everything unloaded, marked, and in it's spot just in time for the first pick up at 11:00am. Phew! Good thing my mom was there watching Wyatt too! He is all over the place and wanted to play outside SO bad! I am so glad my parent's get time with Wyatt even though they are 2 hrs. away.

We had pick ups until about 3pm. We showered and headed over to Mark's brothers for dinner. It had been a while since we were all together. We had a good time and we left around 7:45. Wyatt was worn out! He fell asleep on the way home and didn't wake until this morning about 6:30.

While at IKEA I did find a few fun items. I am trying to add a few things around the house to blend everything together. I feel like when we got married and moved into a house that we kinda just threw stuff together and made it work. Honestly we have been so blessed to have a lot of our items given to us or they were things we already had before we got married. I want the pieces to flow with everything. Ya know?!!?!? I don't want to buy new because we love what we have I honestly I want it to feel comfy. Ha! So.....here is what I found.....

A few new vases/decor:


 I got Wyatt this tool belt....
and this mat for him to play with his cars:
Mark wanted some drawer organizers. Funny I know....LOL! He has to dress up so much and he gets ready in the dark. He says he hates have to search for black vs. navy socks. Too funny!!! So since our dressers are from IKEA they make drawers organizer baskets to fit inside....
Mark also irons his clothes every morning. Yuck! He always leaves the ironing board up and the bottom of the stairs. Something that kinda bothers me...;/ So to solve this problem I bought him an ironing board that goes on the counter. ;)
As I am creating this list I see I purchase a few more things than I remember....oops....

I also got a few items for my nieces lunch box since she will be going to 1st grade. (she didn't stay all day during K so bringing her lunch is a HUGE deal...ha!)


Hmm....I think that's about it. ;) I know I got a few more items but some will be used as gifts and I can't spill the beans yet! Hope you all had a great weekend.

  1. I so love IKEA! We went there the first time about a month ago, and can't wait to go back. Never in my wildest imagination did I think I would love a new lemon juicer, placemats,and bowls so much as ones from there. LOL
