IKEA love!


I know most of my readers know that I work from home. Mark and I were blessed by some friends that sold us a business when they moved out of state. (Thanks Joe & Leigh) The started EXPEDITE stl. Customers from St.Louis order IKEA items through our website and Mark and I (and my dad) travel to IKEA once a month and fulfill the orders. We bring the product back to St.Louis where we then either deliver it or the customers pick it up. It's a little stressful at times but what job isn't....right??!? We love it so much. I am able to work from home so I get to stay with Wyatt.

Mark and I were talking the other day about where we would be if we hadn't choose to be a part of this. Isn't it amazing how God works. We have been through some rough stuff the past 2 years and looking back God was there the entire time, even when I felt alone...he was there. Now, if only I can learn to trust him EVERY TIME I get "down" or stress...phew.

Anyway, I love to travel shop at IKEA once a month! There home decor. is so fun and cheap.  This way I don't feel so bad when I change it around so often.  If you aren't familiar with IKEA go check it out. If you are then you know the employees do not shop for you. It's your own sweat, blood, and tears pulling your items off the shelves. For me I pick up all the house ware, kitchen, curtains, children's, rugs, etc. It's so fun! I find so much cool stuff.

Wyatt is beginning to play a little harder and a little more "real." I mean, we will pretend to eat food or make car noises with his cars. He kinda makes some animal noises but he will feed them and hug some of the stuff animals. It's so cute! So last time I was there I got him this:

It's so fun and soft. The 15 piece set is cloth and only $7.99....cool huh? They have a few more cute ones....that I may have to get this month. ;/

I know he is a boy but I still this it's a fun toy for him. I also watch a little girl who is a few month younger than Wyatt and she LOVES these too. He is so cute playing with her and giving her food. LOL! 

They do have something a little more boyish but last month they were out of stock....hopefully it's there this month:
I hope to find something fun for my niece and nephew this month too. Their b-day's are coming up and I am pretty sure no one will duplicate something from IKEA. Ha ha ha!

IKEA has great furniture too! We are currently working on getting the downstairs bedroom/office to look a little better. It's not very big but needs to be a functioning office and bedroom, both of which will be used regularly. We have been looking for a smaller corner desk and finally found the right one. We will be purchasing this in the near future:
Pretty cool huh? Well....I had to schedule this post because probably as you read it I am shopping away! Hope you'll are enjoying your Saturday!
