I [heart] IKEA

I finally made it to IKEA today, I've been meaning to get out that way. I had the day off because we were pretty low today. Kayla and Cindy came with-Kayla also had the day off. It was quite successful, I bought (hopefully) all of my table decorations. I went back to the three different kinds of vases. They are all quite small so I may group them...I may not. Not really sure of anything yet, I'm trying to stay flexible. There was a set of three that I bought, they're not actually vases, not sure what they were for, but they remind me of Jen. I also bought a rug for the bathroom and one of those homemade looking rugs for in front of the sink--it was only $1.99! And washable! Tons of different colors, Cindy bought one too after we each dug around the pile for a while. *Sigh* I love that place. I love love love these chairs. They are small enough to make me feel like an adult. I also love that they are slipcovered. I know many people who don't like that look but I like the fact that they are washable and you can change the color easily.

And just for fun:
What do you like, or dislike, about IKEA?

Good night!

I Found these Darling Things...

In a Family Circle magazine and decided to make them myself! Unfortunatly I couldn't find the Sealah tape that they recommended so I used glue instead. I love them nonetheless! They are a Secret Santa gift for work.

Walk with Me Down Memory Lane

Remember elementary school? Middle school? High School? Leave a memory or two, or three. (Inspired by Amanda.) Here are some of mine:
I used to throw out my sandwiches too. Shoot, did I let that slip? Oh wait Mom already knows. For some reason, instead of being like Jen I wouldn't crumple my sandwich in my brown bag and throw it away, I would take it home and throw it under the porch. Well, it was bound to happen, Mom found the stash under the porch, still in their baggies. Needless to say she never packed me a sandwich again!

In second or third grade I had the starring role in a play. I was a black girl. I have no idea what the play was actually about, I don't think I ever did. I was however, very disappointed when we never performed in front of the school.

My second grade teacher Mrs. Hendersen was like Ms. Frizzle minus the magic school bus. She was the coolest teacher! She had a giant globe as tall as I was! With ridges and bumps and everything! She wore crazy clothes, shoes, and earrings to match our theme! She taught us how to say "May I please use the bathroom?" in French. I still remember! It sound like this: pwease ah lay ah twalet? She even had a Christmas party and we all got to go to here house! Actually I went the year after, she invited me and Brett who was in her class at the time. I remember that she had two Christmas trees, we decorated cookies, and there were watermelons all over her house!

Now it's your turn! Let's hear your stories!
