Last night we took a family outing to a place we've been saying we'd go since we moved to Utah two years ago. It was so refreshing to get out of our teeny tiny apartment, be together, and talk about life past school and work and money (which is life right now...). But last night as we strolled through the miles and miles of IKEA, we talked about our future. Our kitchen, our bedroom, the kids rooms, the living room and family room. The hubby's office, my craft room. Our mudroom/laundry room. We dreamed. And I loved every minute of it. We don't go on family outings enough.
Madeline: OH MY GOODNESS I'M SO EXCITED! MOM NEVER LETS ME SIT AT THE TABLE!!!!! AND I HAVE MY OWN CHAIR AND MY OWN DISHES! AHHHH!
She knows she's cute
Madeline and Mommy
oooooh.... look at that light! And this little recliner that's just my size is so cool, too!
Do you ever look at a picture of your baby, and your heart starts beating a little faster because this beautiful little person that you created is so cute, and so perfect, and so yours that you just don't even know what to do with all those feelings? Well, I love our baby. That's all.
Weirdest recliner/desk chair ever.
M: I don't like it....
Second weirdest chair ever
M: Ooooh... daddy your wallet is gonna be hurting after mom gets this HUGE closet someday!
M: I sit in egg chairs and put my feet together because I'm that flexible.
M: Also, I'm really cute.
(this was a kids chair and the white part at the top totally folded all the way down so you were completely hidden in the chair. I don't know how I felt about it...)
Best $1 low-fat soft serve yogurt cone I've had in a while. Thank you IKEA.
And surprisingly we made it out before closing. Half an hour before closing. Jeremy announced that we're going to have to build a house someday because we both want such specific things. I didn't argue.
