I had wanted to get this out last night, but after a long day of running around, I was exhausted to even turn on my laptop. My day was filled with lots of waiting, and not knowing what to expect. You see, I was in a new york city courthouse, and in places like that, you wait till you are called upon and speak when you are asked to speak. It wasn’t the best place to be at, but without going into detail, I left the courts happy.
My biggest highlight of the day, was indeed IKEA! How do you not like this place? I can say that since the place wasn’t packed as usual, going around the store, was a bit more enjoying! Here are some pictures that I took while there:
Once I saw the IKEA flags, I got a rush of excitement that I usually get when I arrive at Six Flags Great Adventures!
I thought the colors of the flowers and the vase looked so pretty! My two favorite colors: Pink and Green!
I took this picture after seeing the Eiffel Tower all lit up. I have a thing with the Eiffel Tower! As you can see in the next picture…
This was taken in Las Vegas, where they have a replica Effile Tower. I actually got engaged in the restaurant located on top of the tower! So romantic! =]
I see this light fixture all the time, and just like the look of it. It’s different and unique!
I was eyeing this in the restaurant playroom. I could of taken on all the kids for this one! ;)
One thing I love about IKEA are their large loft sized windows! Especially on a beautiful sunny day like yesterday, this was a picture perfect capture!
My mom is a pasta junkie, so once she saw the penne with marinara sauce, she was a happy camper! I almost got beat up by her fork, trying to capture her “lovely mess”! =] She really enjoyed it!!
Here’s a glass of my refreshing lingenberry drink! Loved this stuff, filled with lots of lingenberry flavor, and loads of sugar! =]
I tried to make more healthy choices, so made myself a side salad of cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and red onions! Very refreshing, and filling!
I usually love ordering the chicken tenders or Swedish meatball dish, but since hubby reminded me of eating healthier, we both got the salmon dish with mixed carrots, and those two yummy vegetable patties! Anyone know the name of that? I’m too lazy to look it up? =] The whole dish was delicious, especially that sauce they put on the whole dish! Will get this again, for sure!
I was so thrilled that many people enjoyed the Blueberry Banana Bread Recipe! I hope that you make it, and enjoy it as much as my family and I did! =]
Now, it’s time for me to clean out my overflowing closet, and figure out what I need to keep and donate. I’m so excited for my trip to Lake George tomorrow, and hope that it will be filled with lot’s of fun and much needed rest!
Did you guys plan out your 4th of July weekend? What are your plans? Will you be cooking away, or will it be your time to getaway and relax?
