Jason and I took off this past Wednesday on a trip to Orlando. We had purchased a three-day getaway and the opportunity to use the trip was about to expire.
It's the first time I have left my six-foot-two "baby" alone for more than one night.
He didn't have a problem being left alone. He was excited at the prospect.
I'm the one who experienced separation anxiety...it's what happens when you have only one child. It's a series of "firsts" and "lasts."
We were driving right past Red Robin on the way down, so we stopped and combined lunch and dinner...yum! It's a fun place. Very colorful. Friendly. Clean. We enjoyed it.
Next stop...IKEA. What a fabulous adventure!
So much to look at.
We bought a much sought-after over sized bathmat for $10. Bargain!
Dishtowels, six in a pack for $2. Priceless!
The colors in this store are unbelievable. So bright, so innovative. Storage solutions...I don't think there are enough of these boxes in IKEA to satisfy my need for storage!
What I really enjoyed were the size-challenged living spaces set up throughout the second floor. Their concept of space-saving solutions for small living spaces were genius. It almost made me wish we had a small house. Not really. I just think that because then I would have more ideas on how to creatively utilize space. And if I had a tiny house, I could use their ideas. But then my guys wouldn't fit in my little abode and life for all of us would be miserable. So I will live in my "big" house. And solve my own storage problems.
We left IKEA with $30 less in Jason's wallet, but it really could have been much worse. I think he got off pretty light...
IKEA is only about 2 hours from Jacksonville...dangerous!
I guess this means I can go shopping and spend more money?
Jason....just kidding, honey! I wouldn't do that.
Or would I?
