Happy Friday

Happy Friday everyone!!  What are you up to this weekend?  I’ll be working away.  As mentioned, I have an installation tomorrow, which may creep into my Sunday as well.  But, I’m excited that after all the hours that go into making a project, it all comes to fruition.  It’s much more rewarding then a lazy Saturday…or so I tell myself.


Speaking of work, yesterday I went to Ikea, Home Depot, Target and Michael’s for some details/accessories for the install; going to that many big box stores drives even the hugest shopping fanatic a little insane.  I obviously chose to eat lunch at Ikea where I walked right past the vegetable wrap and decided on the swedish meatball combo (duh).  While standing in line an elderly lady in front of me kept looking at my plate and then looking back up at me.  Feeling nice, I flashed her a smile.  Then she said to me,  “My, what a healthy appetite you have.  That’s a lot of meatballs.”  Awesome.  I ate all the meatballs on my plate…but one.  Ha.  I showed her.  Some people say my job sounds glamorous, I’m pretty sure it’s these moments that they are talking about.

Happy weekend – I heard it’s a three day.  Enjoy Monday if you get it off!  I’ll see you back here Tuesday!

    I hope that you sat near that lady as you finished your meatballs. That little story made my morning!
    Love the rustic bed. Of course, did you notice those beautiful floors it sits on?
    I can’t wait to see your doctor’s office; those poofs are wonderful and how great for restless younger siblings.

    Kate — I’m surprised I didn’t see you there — but left Ikea around 11. You have the funniest stories about strangers you bump into.

    I know what you mean about big box stores. I usually leave paralyzed with indecision — well with Ikea anyway. I can’t go to Target without spending $100!

    Good luck with the install on Monday. Can’t wait to see.


    I totally order the meatballs too. 😉
