Animal Crackers In My Soup (Or On My Rug) & Ikea

I found this little surprise on my rug today:

It made my heart happy!

In other news, I went to Ikea for the first time ever last week.  My friend and I spent 5 (yes 5!) hours perusing the store.  I was overwhelmed and amazed at all there was to be had.  Some of it was really nice, some of it was a little too modern for me.  But all in all it was a great trip and I'm excited to go back there again, maybe this time with Will!  Here's a little peek at what I picked up:

Of course I got the iconic blue Ikea bag, because, seriously, who doesn't want one of those...  I also picked up a set of bowls, cups, and plates for my little man, a lovely knit (or crocheted?) throw, some fun juice glasses, a set of plastic food storage containers, a wall storage holder for plastic grocery bags, and a yummy smelling candle! 

My two favorites are these sweet little juice glasses:

And this cozy throw:

I was really excited to get out of the store having only spent $60, especially after I saw that the people in front of me dropped $1500!  Whew!


  1. I love those little glasses.

    Wouldn't you love to have $1500 to spend in IKEA? I know I would! LOL

  2. Um yes, that would be amazing!!!!

  3. I have seen some beautiful things from Ikea on a lot of blogs, but there isn't one in my state! I hope to go to one, though, in the future! I want those red and white French-style dishcloths!

  4. Oh I love those dishcloths, they are lovely (as lovely as dishcloths can be...)! It's probably a good thing I don't have one closer to me because there was plenty to tempt me!
