Ikea Trip…


Today we took a family road trip to Ikea. I needed to get a few minor things for the bathroom Reno and my hubby wanted a few organizational things for his school office. We had a blast. We found some great deals and enjoyed a yummy meal too. The trip of course was concluded with some frozen yogurt. My kids of course even ended up wearing some of it! No matter how big they get, they still act like little kids at times.

Here are a couple Ikea tidbits we discovered:

Ikea is an acronym that stands for Ingvar Kamprad (founder), Elmtaryd (the farm where he grew up), and Agunnaryd (his hometown).

Ikea products are named rather than numbered because founder Kamprad is dyslexic.

Ikea sells one Billy bookshelf every 10 seconds. It is the company’s most popular product.

Happy Shopping!


One Step Closer


If truth be told we are more than one step closer to completion. We are many steps closer. The plumbing has been completed to transform tub to shower tray and the many layers of green dry wall has been screwed in place and mudded. It is nice to have walls again. I will send a follow up in a week with hopefully some major transformations.
