Adventures with Mom

June 10, 2009

As you know, my mom came out from California to visit. It was the first time she was able to see our new house. I really needed my mom's decorating expertise...so naturally we had to spend a lot of time shopping for furniture and accessories. We decided that we MUST go to one of my favorite places....Ikea! I heart Ikea. The only problem is that it is about a 2 hour drive...yuck. So I don't get to go as often as I would like. Back in CA my mom probably has 2 or 3 Ikeas within a 2 hour drive...no fair! Mom and I got up early and survived the 2 hour car ride and then we were at Ikea for 4 hours! It was amazing and exhausting. We got some good stuff.

Oh, Ikea, how I love you.


What do you think we bought???? Couldn't fit it inside the car, that's for sure. Don't worry...you'll see some pictures of the finished product soon!

The goods.

And of course, we had to stop at one of my other favorite stores....Trader Joe's! Oh how I wish we had one in Grand Rapids....I should start a petition. I really really love me some TJ's!

Stay tuned...more adventures to come!
