Birthday Trip

My birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks, and I have thought long and hard about what I want. I might be crazy and I might not be, but I want to go to IKEA for my birthday! I have never been and I have accumulated quite a list of things I need (ok, want) from there. Thank goodness my sweet husband has agreed to taking me. I thought I would share a couple of the things on my wish list.

This table will fit perfectly in our small breakfast nook in the kitchen. I am thinking about finding some vintage chairs and repainting/upholstering them to go with it.

LACK Bookcase
This will find a home in my living room on one of the bare walls.

BOMULL Curtains
I will use these curtains in my living room. There are only $14.99/pair. You can't really beat that. These will definitely tide me over until I can afford something different!


I definitely need some of these. These could quite possibly make their way into almost every room in my house. In different colors, of course.


I am not sure where this will go yet but since every light fixture in my entire house needs to be replaced, I am pretty sure we will be able to find a place for it.

As you can tell, I am pretty excited about the upcoming trip. I will, of course, keep you updated on when we go and show pics of what we bring home!

Oh Michelle. IKEA is dangerous ... and will be the most perfect Birthday present! Make sure you plan on being there for at least 2.5+ hours.

Love that table! I have to do that whole replace every light in my house thing too. I'm buying a house in Edmond a short bike ride from my job. Here's my house inspiration blog if you're interested.
