Taxes Ikea and Vertigo



Since I am new to the blog scene here's a recap of the past week or so. Frist off Taxes, OH YA are tax return came in which leads right into Ikea.
I decided to take some of that tax return to ikea with me and like a crazy woman I also brought my four little ones. Which I think I should add that I went on Pres day along with everyone else in Utah. My kiddios were perfect and got an A+ that day. So why did I brave Ikea with no husband in sight. Why you ask because I felt I needed to had some jest to my dinning room(which was nice but kinda plane like vanilla ice cream).
Below are some before and after pics tell me what you think. as a side note these are some of my first pictures that I took in all Manual and I would like to take a moment to thank Steph for all her help in getting me to this point.






























I found the shelf at target and best of all it was 75% off...... I love the grey.
Also I am going to paint my table this spring so if you have any ideas of colors please fell free to let me know.




Before After


I decided that my home needed some plant life and since I am such a great Gardner, the always hard to grow cactus won out... I let my kids each pick out their own. So here are pictures of are family of cactus... From the left... Of course Lauren had to have a pink cactus, next comes Justin's than Milo's, Dallin's, Mine which said it was a cactus even if its not your typical one, and last is Mike's.....
This project worked in perfectly with the Nesters I did it in 10 minutes party she is having today.



Now on to the Vertigo
So Justin went snowboarding on Monday (which was why he wasn't at Ikea) and came home not doing so hot.. At first we thought it was his old age, but soon realized that it was getting worse. Tuesday he was in bed all day he felt dizzy and had nausea. I asked him a couple of times if he and hit his head and he kept saying no, so I asked are you sure you just don't remember hitting your head and he said no Kem... So on Wednesday we went to the DR and I was sure he had a brain tumor and was going to die and leave me with four kids all alone, so when the DR came out in the lobby to get me I thought the worse (why would he need me). Oh he would need me because they were giving him a shot which would cause him to sleep the rest of the night. Yea he had vertigo I know people still get it who knew.... Well today he is still on the couch, so here's wishing luck for Friday... I think I'm going to rent the movie Vertigo and make fun of my husband as he tries to walk down are hall....

Everything looks nice. I like that little breakfast nook. And the row of cactus' are pretty.

I almost went to IKEA on President's Day, but talked myself out of it. But I do love that place!

Thank you so much for utilizing your windowsills. I don't have windowsills anymore and I miss them so much.
