I find there's something largely satisfying in a Thursday night date that takes place at Ikea. A cheap meal, some shelving and one new desk later and I'm full and have many different plans in my head for redecorating. And honestly! Who doesn't love a night out at Ikea with the colours and that familiar smell of pine and cardboard? (If I could get stuck in a place overnight - it wouldn't be a museum, it would be that Swedish store. I bet all the art deco characters and plush children's toys come to life and they make giant forts.)
I should mention we're no longer planning to move (we didn't sell our house in time and we didn't want to move with a) one of us being overly pregnant or b) a brand new baby so we decided to stay put) but it's been a pretty fun few weeks imagining up what changes we want to make to our place. To be honest, I mostly just couldn't take waiting any longer. There's this insatiable need to start making our home so ready, now. Not in four months, but; now :)
So now we've got big plans to spend the weekend tinkering with Universal Ikea instructions and making room for baby.
Have a good one everyone :)
