Oh, retail therapy, how you soothe my soul. Some days, you just need a pick-me-up, and lucky for me, we live less than thirty minutes away from IKEA. Seriously, my dreams have come true. HEAVEN. Connor and I spent about 4 hours walking around, and because I have the best husband, he let me buy some stuff, too. A little early birthday present to me! I love these tables in the photo above, but the floor models were a little wobbly, and I didn’t know if the actual ones I would buy would be the same way. Hmm. I need to figure out if I can buy them, or make them in a sturdier way. But, we did get some cool finds.
I love walking through that store. Right now, they have displays of small spaces, examples of houses under 600 square feet. Could you live in that? I could, as long as it was designed as efficient as the ones they showed. If I ever have the opportunity to design my own home, I would make it small yet functional. It made me excited to get my belongings back. My parents are coming to visit next weekend as well as bringing our things. I also can’t wait to show them around our new stomping ground.
Anyway, we have been keeping busy, and by the end of the week I am worn out. Always happy for the weekend. Is there such thing as jobs with three-day weekends forever? I need one! I am really loving the idea of working from home, or shorter days, or something.
