This past Friday we loaded up the truck and headed to Dallas for a little baby shopping trip. I have been dying to make a trip to Ikea (for the first time ever) and so that was the main point behind our road trip. We also hit up The Container Store and Buy Buy Baby, both of which I head over heels loved. I contemplated moving to Dallas for a few hours, but my senses quickly returned when we got stuck in 5 o'clock traffic. Horrible.
Ikea was definitely amazing and unique. We made it in and out in just under two hours, which I was pretty proud of. I can totally see how people spend half a day in there, though, especially if they are shopping for lots of house items. We ended up bringing home a dresser, a chest of drawers, a little storage thing, lots of baskets/trinkets and a lamp. Emory was happy, to say the least. : )
The pieces of the nursery are slowly starting to come together and I am just thrilled about it. We aren't going to actually start setting it up until closer to delivery, just in case we sell our house before then, but I really can see it starting to all come together. Happy, happy, happy.
A few other cute items recently:
The nursery rug...woohoo! Can't wait to share it!
The rest of our weekend was spent snuggled up in bed/on the couch as it rained and rained. Tomorrow we are celebrating our second wedding anniversary! TWO WHOLE YEARS! Oh how time flies when you're having fun!
