My New Love

So, I think I'm in LOVE ...

With IKEA, ha ha (got you worried, didn't I?)

I totally forgot how much I love that place .. here are the most recent purchases that we have added to our home ...

Hemnes - 3 Drawer Dresser $149

Hemnes - Nightstand x 2 $59.99 Each

Antonius Closet Storage - ~$40 Each (each drawer and stand purchased separately)
(We got two units that are 6 drawers tall, without the casters)

$29.99 for a set of two

Of course, I forgot to mention that all the furniture has to be assembled. It didn't bother me too much, but I'm pretty sure my neighbors didn't appreciate my hammering at 1 am, ha ha! I was motivated, and couldn't stop :) I'll post pictures of our new, organized place as soon as I get everything in it's place!

Next time you're in the Atlanta area, make sure to stop by IKEA .. or if you want to keep your money in your bank account .. maybe you shouldn't? Happy shopping!

I decided to become a consultant for a company called Thirty-One. They do in-home parties for embroidered goodies like lunch bags, purses, totes, towels, makeup bags, backpacks, etc. I think the Christian company mission is fabulous ...

I'm excited about sharing these cute new products with my friends and family. They are reasonably priced, and we all know that I like to keep myself busy with random side jobs .. so this will suffice for now :)

Please check out the catalogs if you are interested .. I am not going to pay for the personal website monthly fee, so contact me directly for any orders or parties!

RIP Sugar

Our family golden retriever, Sugar, passed away on her 10th birthday, 03/30/2010, while being rushed to the emergency animal clinic. She had pericardial effusion (fluid in the sac surrounding her heart). Soo happy she could enjoy her new, baby sister (Cupcake) for the last couple weeks of her life. I will miss you, Sugar! God, thank you for allowing me to enjoy your creation through Sugar. Please take care of her up there :)

Off Orientation

I don't know whether to be nervous,

or to be excited .. I'm glad to be finally on my own .. but I hope I don't screw anything up too bad. Tonight is the first night of three in a row for me. So, stay tuned to see how it goes :)
