I'm really not good at this blogging thing am I?

Hey girls! I sure have missed you! I know I have still been able to comment on your posts (I sneak it at work) but I haven't had the time to write a blog post in over a week! Shame on me.

This weekend was relaxing.
 Friday night I went over my dad's to spend time with them and have a pizza dinner. They have an amazing front porch so we sat on there most of the night and watched my little brother and the neighborhood kids play. It's nice sometimes not doing anything. I also played Wii with my little brother. Pointless though because he plays so much that I lost to him :( (we played the baseball game and he won 10-0! How embarrassing haha)

 Saturday my mom and I went to one of my favorite stores - Ikea - love that place! I'll take one of everything, thank you :) I needed a bookcase/storage unit because I had no place to store, books, magazines, etc. This is what it looks like:
But imagine it turned vertically. Purchasing something from Ikea means you must put it together - luckily it only took about 20 something minutes and a screwdriver later :) I like it a lot. After Ikea, we went to lunch and shared a grilled chicken breast with crab meat on top of it. So good! Saturday night M and I went to the regular out door place but called it an early night because he had worked that morning.

Sunday M and I went to a place on the water for lunch and a yummy drink. I got a crab pretzel and he got shrimp salad. Delicious food. It was so nice thanks to a breeze coming off of the water.

Sorry but I forget to take pics AGAIN! :(

It was definitely a good weekend though. I hope yours was great too!

P.S - I'm getting a new blog look any day now and a giveaway is coming! Thanks to CSN :) Stay tuned!

Sounds like a good weekend. I haven't been to IKEA in forever. I don't really have much room these days to add any more storage! Have a great week!

Oooh cute bookcase I've been wanting the big black one with like 12 cubby holes it's on sale now so I'm tempted to get it.

I feel like you have posted because we chatted alot last week! I can't wait to see the final design is it all worked out?

Confession: I've never actually been to an IKEA. We have one right by the Mall of America but Greg refuses to shop there because when we first moved here he did a survey there and got sooo frustrated with being lost in the store, hahah :-) I guess the floor plan is horrible at this location and you have to go EVERYWHERE to get to one place, if that makes sense.

However, we do get the catalog and I loooove all of the colors that they use!! Love the new bookcase :-)

Jen said...

Oh I love Ikea! What a great shelf! The catch is always having to put things together; we learned that with our entertainment centers!
