Mother’s Day Adventures

OK, it wasn’t exactly an “adventure”, but I got to go to one of my favorite stores yesterday.  We got there early enough to browse through the furniture part of the store, had lunch in their restaurant, and then browsed through the downstairs. We looked at lamps for the dining room and I think we could both agree on this one http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/70089447 I love the option of candles or light bulbs. We didn’t buy it yet because Greg won’t have time to put it up before we leave for vacation, so we’ll just have to go back 😉 The girls found some huge plush dolphins that they fell in love with, and Greg bought them. Stay tuned for pictures!

I’m already looking forward to going back with a friend this fall, after the new school year starts. Just her and me… no kids to slow us down, and no husbands to tell us to hurry up.

    Oh fun!!! I have a very similar one, we bought, wow, 3 months ago??? And it’s still in the box so good for you not to buy it so you’re blood won’t boil over everytime you walk by it!
    Glad you had such a great day, but I agree, go again with no kids or dh, lol!
