Thank You IKEA

Ever since IKEA opened a couple of weeks ago, Adam and I have been every chance we could get. Shhhhh…I have a secret…Adam likes going and picking out things for our house just as much as I do, and I have to say that he is pretty good at it! Everything has definately been a joint effort! Thanks Adam for the “interior designer” in you! I’ll leave you with a few pics of our recent purchases…

Here is our desk

Here is our little couch & table

And our office…

PS: 29 days til Disney!


And the saga begins…

Ladies and Gentlemen, may I now pronounce that Adam and I are officially beginning our Christmas shopping today! Yes, I said today…5 days before Christmas! Wish us luck, and hopefully we will get it all done today and tomorrow! Ok, he’s calling me…and we’re off!


Today Adam and I had the privledge of going on an adventure together. We were actually going to see if a Home Goods store had this wall art we wanted to put over our fireplace. We didn’t find anything, BUT we did go into Off Broadway afterwards and found, I believe, the best shoe made! Adam and I bought ourselves a pair of “Sanuks”. I’m not quite sure how you pronounce the name, but they are the most comfertable shoes I have ever worn! Now, if you know Adam, you know that he has the most flat feet any person could ever have and finding him a good pair of shoes that he can stand to wear is an adventure in itself. But when he put these shoes on it’s like his feet just melted. He could not stop telling me how good they felt (I’ll give you and update in a couple of weeks).
So these shoes/sandals are made with a sandal bottom and a flexible “shoe” top. They say that the natural feel of the sandal bottom will actually help us walk in our natural way. Most shoe stores will look at your feet and give you this high tech shoe with different gels and arches and they end up hurting your feet a month down the road. I’ve always thought it was kind of funny when Adam would go get fitted for a pair of shoes and the sales people would give him a shoe with a high arch in it when Adam doesn’t even have an arch. Come on people…you don’t put 2 un-natural things together and expect it to be comfortable! So I really have high hopes for these shoes…I guess we’ll see!
