Shopping Trip!!!

I am VERY excited because Ikea opened up in Tampa early this month and I AM GOING TOMORROW!!! I did go a few days after it first opened, but it was CRAZY and I just followed the Mob of people in a maze around the store until I ended up at the ice cream shop and purchased ice cream and cinnamon buns! I left with a catalog and a big case of buns for breakfast!

Tomorrow I am going back!!!!! I have my list already made of the things that I can get and fit in my car (with the two kids and car seats) and here it is! I am getting two of these super cute $19 chairs! I know they don't look like much, BUT I have BIG plans for them!!!!! (Grace gave me the idea!!!)
This super bright pink chair is going in my sewing room. It has taken on a very Chic Boutique image and I am just going with it! It isn't my normal style....but when I am creating and sewing I like getting out of my little "box". PLUS, this DEF beats out the KIDS CHAIR I am sewing on now! Yes, I take the chair from my kid's little table and chair set to sew!!! oh so sad!!! This will all go away tomorrow and they can have their chair back!
This frame is also WAY outside of my normal "plain jane" look! I got the idea from my sister! This super fun frame is under $30 from Ikea and she spray painted hers white and added cork in the middle!!!! LOVE IT! I am going to keep it black, and either put cork in it....or spray it pink and paint the inside as a chalk board. Decisions decisions!
Alright, off to package up some pillows.....and then add to my list! I am SO excited about my big trip! I am just wondering if Collin has any high heel shoes I can put him in for our trip! HE IS TOO SHORT TO GO IN THE PLAY AREA!!!!! Who has a height requirement for a play yard?!!!! This just means that I will have to pick up ice cream drips all over Ikea! Great!
