It's a long story, really... It all started when we decided to re-pipe our house. This meant that Brett needed to drill holes through the back of the pantry where we keep literally ALL of our things that aren't clothes. All of that stuff would have to be taken out. This made us think that perhaps we could use more closet space, which reminded us that we have bunk beds that could set up in Moses' bedroom, which would allow us to put both boys in the same bedroom and turn Titus' current "room" back into a closet. This necessitated rearranging all the furniture in Moses' room, which meant taking down all of the cute decorations I had finally hung up. This resulted in an ugly bedroom. And THAT resulted in today's trip to IKEA.
I never knew how much I love this store. Normally I would wait for Brett to be home before going on such an involved excursion, but today I felt desperate to decorate, so it was just the kids and me. And we had FUN! The atmosphere is totally laid back and family friendly and there are plenty of couches and beds for the kids to "try out" without fear of employees giving you the evil eye. In the kids' area, which is where we spent most of our time, there is a slide set up and tons of little things for the kids to play with while mommy shops. Then there is the amazing restaurant - my kids each ate their weight in Swedish Meatballs and I think I spent something like $6. Hopefully we'll get all the new fun stuff into the room soon so I can show you some pictures. Thanks IKEA!
