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.
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!
