Happy June! Summer is officially in full swing….Minus the fact that it’s only 60 degrees in good ole’ Illinois right now, but that’s the Midwest for you. This weekend was a productive one, and I’m feeling goooood about it. Saturday, Shane went fishing and I spend a solid 10 hours deep cleaning the house. I don’t know what got into me, but I liked it. Never have I ever gotten so much satisfaction out of organizing a closet, but my goodness it felt great.
Sunday morning, Shane, my mom, and I headed to IKEA. Ohhh IKEA, love you so much. I found a new dresser for our bedroom, picture frames to finally display some of our wedding photos, a rug, and other random small things. I am seriously grateful that I live 2 hours away from the nearest IKEA because I would literally never leave….I would find a reason to be there every stinkin’ day, really. Shane was a trooper, not even second guessing when I said “I literally need these” to the hot pink hangers, pushing me around on the cart, and driving us all over God’s green earth on 2 hours of sleep. I think I’ll keep him around.
Our friends Damian and Natalie came over to show us their new sweet little puppy, and naturally we put Damian to work. 3 boxes, 3 people, 3 and a half hours later, our dresser was put together. I actually bribed my oldest sister that I would do her hair for free if she came and did it, because I was not about to put myself through that. While they did that, I worked on my garage sale score that I can’t wait to be done! I picked up a solid wood end table for $10 last weekend and it’s going to be perfect in our bedroom. I’ve been using 2 crates stacked on top of each other as a bedside table for the past 7 months, and I’m over it. I know that crates are a thing right now, but me knocking them over every other day when I stumble out of bed is getting old.
It’s a work in progress, this thing is taking a ridiculous amount of paint. I will show it completed once I finish our bedroom *fingers crossed* this week. I am so addicted to decorating, I want to re-do everything a month after I finish it…It’s a sickness, I know.
