It’s 9pm and I should NOT be as tired as I am. It’s such a bummer, being tired. But we had a big day today! Last night when eric got home from work, we went to IKEA to buy dishes and a few kitchen essentials. I had decided that I wanted to get something with a black and white combo, but I didn’t know what. We had our whole crew-and it was about 8pm. I picked out the most perfect black and white polk-a-dot plates, and bowls- got some big mugs for hot choc. and a few other items, including a rug for the kitchen floor. I am so excited!! it’s been a long time since I got to ‘set up house’! Check out the pink place mat.. man, it had to be made for me! (me and everyone in the world… I can’t believe how successful IKEA is in every land!)- and fuchsia is the hot fall color!! i even hung my ‘welcome’ banner in the kitchen. It makes me happy!
