And off we go...

I am so excited because tomorrow morning my sister is coming over, and we have a fun day planned! Our first stop will, of course, have to be Starbucks! We will need the caffeine when we get here...



The last time I went to IKEA is almost nine years ago! It is only about an hour or so away, but for some reason seems so far away that I haven't gone back! But tomorrow I'm going to change that! I'm hoping to find curtains for my living room windows, so cross your fingers for me! :)

I hope you had a good Tuesday! :)

Blessings,

I didnt realise they had Ikea in the US for some reason! I suppose they are a global company. I like their kitchen stuff. I hope you have a lovely day with you sister.

Hope you had fun at Ikea!! I love looking through their catalogs, but the last time I went to a store, I got so overwhelmed I literally had to walk outside and just breathe a few times, hahaha! :)

I've never been to an Ikea and I think the closest one to me is about a 4 hour drive. Someday I'd love to see what they have. Enjoy your day shopping!

NC just got an IKEA back in the summer. It's in Charlotte which is only a couple of hours from here. But it's a city I really don't like. I had never heard of them before until all the hoopla was made about them coming. We may have to just drive down there somtime.

I hope you guys had a wonderful time shopping!!

Hi Jenni :)

I think you'll be pleasantly surprised when you see all that they have. I remember when it first started and I hated all the modern stuff they had. LOVE it now though :)

Make sure to check out the kitchen section!!

Hey Jenni! I bet you thought I fell off the blogland face of the earth, didn't you? It's been crazy but I'm still here!
Thanks so much for checking on me. That was so sweet but then again you are a sweetie so I should have known you would! Yes, Jason is home and we got orders. We put the house on the market in September, sold 2 weeks later, packers come next week and we close on the house next Thursday. So, it's been a teeny bit crazy needless to say!
I'll be back to normal soon though with updates!
Love and lots of hugs~ Les

I had a great time at Ikea Jenni! Though I did wear out rather quickly didn't I? I am so glad we were able to enjoy a fun-filled day together. = )

Southern Belle said...

I agree with Amy S. We 3 should get together for a couple hours sometime soon. = )

Oh my gosh you are going to have sooo much fun! I love IKEA! Be sure to stop and have lunch. They changed the menu considerably.

I haven't been to IKEA yet. And I'm afraid to go. I'm afraid I might like it to much.
