Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

Yesterday my in-laws came down. Garnet's computer has been playing dead lately, so he brought it over so that John could try and fix it for him.

While John and Garnet got busy with the computer, I took Ruth out shopping. We hit Walmart - bought some new sheets for the trailer, new running shoes for me, sunglasses for Ruth.

Then we went for a nice lunch at William's Coffee Pub. I love going for lunch there. Good food, nice atmosphere, and I feel like a grown-up.

Then we hit Ikea. Have I ever mentioned how much I love Ikea?? I could go there every week. So many cool things. I didn't buy a lot, but check out these cool finds!
Look how cute this little cutting board is. It has a knife that slips right inside when not in use. It's only about 6" x 8" so it's perfect for taking along on a picnic, throwing in a lunch box (ummmm ... not to school, I'm sure I would get a phone call home about that one!) or just pulling out for cheese and crackers for a snack. I love it so much, I bought two.

I also bought one of these ... in green. Very cool. Perfect for the trailer ... that is, until a pillow fight starts, or someone starts rough housing, and it gets smashed (so it may last a couple of days.)
I love Ikea!

    GREAT buys at Ikea! Makes me want to go. Even though we have one in the city (only 20 minutes away from home), I hardly ever go. It's busy no matter what time of day, what day of the week. Man, it's CRAZY. lol

  2. If I packed that cutting board in Joshua's lunch I'd be getting a call from the police, not the school.

    I love Ikea too! I could go there to roam around all the time too! LOL And bonus, the girls love to go to the "daycare" there!

    I love that board. I need to get myself one now! LOL
