So yesterday was a very rainy day and I was trying to decide between cleaning out my pantry or going to Ikea. In the end I decided on Ikea since I have been missing my family back in Holland, and I thought that walking around Ikea might make me feel closer to them. Ikea is one of my mom's favorite places :-)
I had a lovely time browsing in the store. It was not crowded so I was able to really take my time and I thoroughly enjoyed it. You gotta love Ikea with all their great stuff at very reasonable prices! Among my purchases:
Since discovering Teavana, I thought this teapot was a must!
Jazzie had been asking us for a desk for a long time. I didn't want to spend a whole lot of money, but I thought this desk would be perfect for her:
Matt put it together when she was at school so it would be a surprise. I did not say anything when the girls got home. Jazzie had her snack, a drink and started browsing on my Facebook page which I had left sitting on the counter. I had put pictures of her desk on there so when she saw the picture of her desk, she did a double take. She looked confused. "Is that MY room, mom?" The look on her face was priceless. She ran up to her room and was THRILLED.
