Karen and I ventured to IKEA today. To pick up baby things, bakery things and Karen’s house things! A multi-purpose trip for sure!
I was shopping for a Hemnes dresser. I reallllly wanted this one, but I decided it was just a little too big for our little nursery. So I settled on the 3 drawer instead.
But I’m so excited that the drawers are already lined – with white + yellow!!!
Our little guy will have to have one of these someday 🙂
Babyland was not quite as fun as I’d hoped. Most IKEA things are neutral and modern, but it seemed like all the baby + kid stuff was wild and didn’t feel as well made. LOVED those big carrot pillows you see in that bin though! I didn’t buy one because I got a mini soft vegetable set instead : )
Karen and I took forever to get through the store, and then add warehouse shopping on top of that. Plus truck loading. The dresser was SO heavy! We were exhausted by the time we pulled away, but thankfully we had ice creams to keep our spirits up.
Because then we hit rush hour. Bummmmmer. I never think to leave earlier in the morning – I figured we’d be out by 3-4!
Snacks for the road –
And finally, upon returning home, our man was waiting for us with homemade split pea soup! Instead of bacon he used the leftover Easter ham, and I topped mine off with greek yogurt and a hunk of Cville Crunch.
Cannot wait to get cozy in bed. All of those IKEA beds made me miss my own!
