Well, yesterday I went from using this.......
to using this. Wow! Quite an improvement! For the past seven years, I've been using apartment size units. It was ok when it was just 3 of us, but as our family increased, and our washer and dryer did not, it resulted in MANY trips up and down the basement steps. Ugh! Anyway, last week, the washed died, so we decided it was time to move up a couple sizes. The washer is running great, but the dryer cord was too short, so they'll have to finish installing it later today.....I hope. After a week without a washer and dryer......well, we are getting low on clothes!
Tuesday night, a couple girls from campus graciously volunteered to babysit, so Chris and I got to take a date. Chris wanted our destination to be a surprise. We ended up at Smokey Bones in West Chester. I must admit, the whole time I was eating, I couldn't help but think how fun it would be to stop by IKEA on the way home. Well, that was the best part for me! :) He had already planned to do just that. I am a HUGE fan of IKEA! I'm not into ALL their decor, but I love enough of it to make me want to go there quite often!
So........here I am getting my big shopping bag at the entrance.
One of the rooms I liked.
A kitchen I did not......
I thought this nursery was kind of cozy. I think it's a lot prettier in person....the pictures couldn't quite capture all the small details.
Here's the nursery lamp that makes me want to do a nursery all over again. It was just so sweet. I wish I could think of a spot in my house for this anyway!
A round bed......hmmmmm.......
I just had to include this picture of Caleb reading to his dogs and bears. Lauren fixed him up in this chair while we were home schooling yesterday and I was surprised that he actually stayed there for about 45 minutes. It was too cute....and made our school much quieter! And speaking of homeschooling, we better go get started. Hope you have a good Thursday!
