To Ikea & Beyond!

This week I spend a wonderful, child-free day shopping with these lovely ladies...

My sister-in-law Heather, my sister Sara, and my mom

We started our day at Ikea and can I tell you? That store sings to me. Really. (Thank you Andrea for the introduction!) It is so chock-full of fun things at such low prices that I can hardly control myself. So I thought I'd share my goodies with you.

These are hanging baskets that I put beside Avery's changing table. What a great way to keep stuff out of her reach! Awesome idea.
Here are some pot holders that I really didn't need but at 97 cents for the pair, who could resist? I mean, really.

These are cute storage boxes that I put on my shelves in the office. The whole wall is covered with shelves, and it's challenging to keep them looking organized, so these will help to keep some unsightly things hidden. I love all the designs and colors they had. And so cheap...

I also got a lovely duvet cover for my bedroom, but I won't show pics till I have the bedroom finished - sorry! (oh, the anticipation)

Next we hit Restoration Hardware, which is just so perfect. Love the clean lines, muted colors, everything about this store. I could've been in there all day. Although it's too pricey for me, that won't stop me from using lots of their ideas! :)

We also perused Pottery Barn which, obviously, is just lovely. Saw Martha's new collection at Macy's (nice but not super-impressive, in my opinion). And ate dinner at The Cheesecake Factory. Can you say calories?? But so worth it.

What a great day!


  1. Jealous, too! :)

    Glad you got a day away doing what you love. It can be so refreshing!

  2. Sounds like a fun day!
    I am taking my first trip to Ikea tomorrow! I plan on buying roman shades and magazine file boxes.

  3. Sounds like my kind of day. I love ikea as well, who can resist?

  4. oh the deliciousness of it all...the being with family, the great stores, the good finds, the placing them in your home and making them your own and last, but CERTAINLY not least, the dessert! your shelves look awesome.

  5. Good for you! Sounds like a super fun day. I would KILL for an IKEA here. We finally got a Pottery Barn, so I guess I'll just have to be patient. :)

  6. Sounds like so much fun. I wish we had the Cheesecake Factory here, just for once in while.

  7. Oh all of my favorite places! They opened an Ikea in the town my hubby works in last year, I love it!!! Hope you brought home lots of goodies!

  8. Sounds like you had a lot of fun! We desperately need an Ikea here in KC!

  9. What a HEAVENLY day! Indeed! Sigh...



I love hearing from you! Thanks for your comments! ~Aimee
