IKEA Shopping Trip & Home Dreaming Again

Yesterday, we took a family trip with my mother-in-law to IKEA. She needed some inexpensive bedside lamps for her room (and also paid for a pair of lamps for our room as well). I don’t always think that there will be something new and different to catch my eye, but I did spot a couple of new things that I liked.

This is the perfect pillow cover for Avery's room.

I thought the green storage cabinet was kind of interesting although my husband prefers the gray one.

The rolling cart storage might be perfect for Avery's bathroom later on.

I love that this shelf has a lip...keep those frames from falling off!

We also made a second trip to the Fulton Homes development at Cooley Station North. Now that we’ve seen them a second time around, we feel more comfortable saying that we think this is where we want to live. The homes are a little larger than we anticipated wanting for our first/forever (potentially) home, but the location is great and the courtyard is appropriate for the amount of maintenance we are willing to deal with for an outdoor space.
