Ikea

Monday, July 18, 2011

The other weekend, Durel, Jack, and I decided to venture to Ikea.

To many people, going to Ikea is not that big of a deal.  To us, it is.


Why?  Because Ikea is kind of far from our house.  Granted, we're lucky to have one in the Austin area, but it's a bit of a haul.  Also?  Because Ikea is completely and totally overwhelming.  I have a tendency to get all worked up whenever I go.  I decide that I want EVERYTHING in the store, that my whole design aesthetic has shifted to be totally Scandinavian, and that I hate everything in my house.

Oh, and that I'm hungry.


So, we don't go to Ikea that often.  And when we went last weekend, we had a specific goal in mind:  Get Big Boy Stuff for Jack.

How did we do?

Grammy and Jack work on their art.

Jack's fitting tribute to the recently deceased Cy Twombly.

Happily seated at his Big Boy table and chairs.
I think the trip was a huge success.  Also, we acquired that black and white spotted dog that is on the table in the last picture.  Jack will not let the dog out of his sight for one second.  Ladies and Gentlemen, we have our first "lovie."  Stay tuned for more adventure in Lovie Land.

Hope you have a lovie today,
Heather
