Don't Judge Me

For what I am about to share. I blame it on the fact that I don't get out much.
 
I.
 
Have.
 
Never.
Been.
 
To.
 
IKEA.
 
I remember when they built one in Utah about an hour or so from where I lived. People went crazy over it. I never went because I lived in an apartment and knew half the stuff I bought would end up getting tossed once I moved.
 There is one in Atlanta about 15 minutes from our new doctor's office (which is right around the corner from the temple too, how fun is that?!).
 
I have a feeling many more trips will be happening, after the up and down emotions at the doctor's why don't I deserve a little IKEA moment or two. I loved their "this is what we did with x amount of square footage." Genius!!
 And of course I can't be denied frames, things that go in frames, and ideas for framing things that can frame ideas, that I love because framing is amazing and faces, people, pets, everything should be framed.
Don't y'all just love how giddy IKEA makes you?!  
 Ever seen an appliance and wanted to buy it just to see what the heck it does? I want to buy kitchen appliances and then find the recipe that requires me to use it...
This is one of the inspirations I gained while shopping. Why not enlarge some of my own photographs and place them in these lovely three frames? I loved this one of just patterns, the navy and white are so classy. Some could be patterns, faces, pets, scenery, I've got to get started!
 
What I did end up actually getting were two new towels, a mat, and shower curtain for our bathroom. Wouldn't you know it, I put everything up Friday afternoon and on Saturday evening we had another septic tank problem. Lucky us the water that did go everywhere was CLEAN. Things will be "officially" fixed soon.
Nothing another trip to IKEA won't fix.

I have never been to IKEA! We don't have one in Idaho. When we drive through Utah, I always say, "We should stop there sometime". But, we are traveling and it isn't convenient.

We've been three times? Our closest one is in Phoenix. The first time we went was to buy a bookcase and discovered that it wouldn't fit in our car. The second time we went with my parents who had a minivan, so we got the bookcase. And the third time we bought a smaller bookcase that did fit in our car.

You should definitely blow up your own photos to hang up in your place. We have photos up all over our place, and other than the one my brother took on safari in Africa and our wedding photos, I took all the rest. I love the personal nature of it.
