"Family Activity" aka shopping

Yeah, so it was too cold to do anything outside today, and the only things we had thought of were the zoo, or the botanical gardens. Needless to say those were both out. So instead we made the long trek up the that big blue store in the sky: IKEA. We had marginal luck. The food was weird today (no peanut butter and jelly for Brady, and the mac & cheese was "mooshy" according to Natalie), the main item we were seeking was out of stock, and of course it was crowded.

This is what we went for, it is a little highchair for Natalie so she can get off her make-shift booster of phonebooks, and we can put Brady into the regular booster seat, and get rid of the highchair we have now. Of course, they won't have any for at least 2 weeks, so we will have to go up again. Better start another list!

But, we did pick up a few things that I am pleased with.

A cute play rug I have been wanting for a while now. I love it because it is soft colors instead of the ones you normally see that are primary colors with black roads. Plus an added bonus was that it was only $15!!Small cardboard storage boxes to help pretty up my craft room. I only bought one set, and now I NEED more. They are so pretty and handy!
And, last but not least a super cute, table top ironing board so I don't have to lug out my huge one into the limited space I have when I want to iron one teensy bit of material. That was getting old! And the best part about this one is that it was $3! you can't beat that!

I have never been to IKEA. I want to go but no one to take me and there is not one close to me. I get their sales catalogs now and then and I do like their stuff. I would have a blast going through everything! Someday. Like your stuff. I need one of those ironing boards. I don't even have one. I use the top of my bed.

We've been wanting to get that same rug for a long time! But the last time we were there we spent waaayyy too much money so we put the rug back to get for another time! Hopefully that will be soon. My sister has it and it's so cute!!

I love IKEA. And we usually have pretty good luck at the food court, but the macaroni always seems to be mushy! Can't beat the prices though!

"Out of Stock and Crowded" seems to be Ikeas middle name.

But the swedish meatballs are sublime.

And we have snow on the hills here :)
