This week I spend a wonderful, child-free day shopping with these lovely ladies…

My sister-in-law Heather, my sister Sara, and my mom

We started our day at Ikea and can I tell you? That store sings to me. Really. (Thank you Andrea for the introduction!) It is so chock-full of fun things at such low prices that I can hardly control myself. So I thought I’d share my goodies with you.

These are hanging baskets that I put beside Avery’s changing table. What a great way to keep stuff out of her reach! Awesome idea.

Here are some pot holders that I really didn’t need but at 97 cents for the pair, who could resist? I mean, really.

These are cute storage boxes that I put on my shelves in the office. The whole wall is covered with shelves, and it’s challenging to keep them looking organized, so these will help to keep some unsightly things hidden. I love all the designs and colors they had. And so cheap…

I also got a lovely duvet cover for my bedroom, but I won’t show pics till I have the bedroom finished – sorry! (oh, the anticipation)

Next we hit Restoration Hardware, which is just so perfect. Love the clean lines, muted colors, everything about this store. I could’ve been in there all day. Although it’s too pricey for me, that won’t stop me from using lots of their ideas!:)

We also perused Pottery Barn which, obviously, is just lovely. Saw Martha’s new collection at Macy’s (nice but not super-impressive, in my opinion). And ate dinner at The Cheesecake Factory. Can you say calories?? But so worth it.

What a great day!
