Before I begin I’d just like to say that in spite of what I’m about to write I urge you to stay out of this place.  If that warning isn’t enough I want you to imagine me screaming DANGER! DANGER! every time you see something you think that you might want to buy.  I must say that Ikea with a friend is more fun than being on your own even if it doubles the number of toddlers in tow.  Fast forward to the end of the trip and you would see that at the checkout one was in full blown tears and the other was running around in circles like a madman.  To this very moment I have no idea what my total was I gave the lady my card, we stuffed everything back in the cart and were out of there as fast as our little feet could carry us.  But it was good fun and I’d do it all over again tomorrow if I thought my wallet could handle it.  

We found cool stuff like

half price!   

and these clips which I’m told are indespensible

Did I mention that my friend is an enabler awesome person?  : )  The kids had a great time.  I guess most kids have a great time an Ikea because there were tons of them there.  I actually think we actually crashed a playgroup.  

Believe it or not though, Ikea was my second outing of the day.  I had a second interview earlier in the morning and you’ll be pleased to know that I am now gainfully employed.  I’m pretty happy about it because it’s a part tim gig.  I’ve been back and forth over whether I’m ready or not to go to work but I’m actually starting to feel pretty excited about it and particularly about this job because it just seems cool.  I have a lot of things to write about they’re starting to get backed up while I spend time watching movies and television.  This is the best break ever!  In my notebook… tonight’s episode of project runway, cylburn arboretum, big girl beds, my latest thrift store finds and finally.. some pictures!
