Things have been so crazy around here this week too... we had a freak snow storm here on the Oregon Coast. I heard on the news it hadn't snowed this much since 1951. Crazy! But so fun. We only had about 3 inches of snow at our house, but other areas were hit harder. All schools were closed and I was stuck in my driveway. I can hear you snow bunnies groaning now, lol.
While I was out of town I was able to make my first trip to IKEA! (I know, how sad is that?! But it is 2 hours away from where I live. Boo.) Oh.my.gosh. I have to be honest here, I have a love-hate relationship with Ikea now. I love the stuff they have and their prices of course, but I went alone and I had absolutely no idea what I was doing when I walked in and I may have become very crabby and overwhelmed. Especially when I got to the register and the friendly (and by friendly I mean wickedly cranky) lady told me I only had box #2, and I needed to go get box #1... which "would be a whole lot bigger than box #2". Sigh. When I hiked back to Aisle 22/Bin 41 it was then I noticed the fluorescent yellow signs stating "HEY STUPID! YEAH, YOU! THERE ARE TWO BOXES! ONE. TWO. 2 BOXES. HEHEHE YOU DIDN'T SEE ME! PEEK-A-BOO! LOL! TWO BOXES!". I also may have almost cried when I couldn't get my humungo trolly cart to fit through the line to get a cinnamon roll. Wah. BUT, Five hours after I entered through the doors of the Ikea I had this baby loaded up in my car:
|Ikea HEMNES Shoe Cabinet ($139)|
She is a beaut. This will be in my entry way soon. Of course, for now, it is in a box in my car. But soon I will get the entry way makeover I have been dreaming about!
I have some small project posts coming up, like a spray painted bathroom table and an Easter wreath. I just need to get some good pictures.
The Office re-do is slooooooooooow going, nothing exciting to report yet.
I'll be back very soon with some good stuff, promise! (crossies don't count.) What have you been up to?
