Oh How I Love Thee Ikea !!! . . .

There is no doubt in my mind that I've spent several of my past lives in Europe. I am drawn to all things European including people, places and a simpler way of living.

We spent close to six hours walking around Ikea the other day and could've spent at least another two if baby girl had cooperated just a little bit longer.

We went looking for a dresser for Megan and for myself and came home with neither. We did come home with two nightstands, two lamps, an adorable chair for our bedroom and lots of other goodies. I saw so many different lights that I wanted to take home. They are like works of art to me and so reasonably priced!!

My dream bedroom!!!! There was not one thing in this display that I wouldn't have used in my own bedroom. I think it was a bit too "girly" for Jim but was perfect for me. : )

I seriously want to learn how to make my pics bigger. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!

Brendan brought along his friend, Miles. They had a blast running around and exploring everything.

Miles playing in the play area in the food court. I almost broke my neck taking this picture when I tripped over a stuffed animal!!!!

Brendan the ham!!!!!

I'll share the pictures of our purchases when our bedroom is finished. It should look so pretty when it's all put together. Right now it's a MAJOR DISASTER AREA!!!!!!!
Have a safe and happy weekend!! Just a few more weeks and it's back to school. I'm not ready for that yet!! UGGHHH!!!!!!
Many blessings ~ Wendy
