And just like that… May is here! Is time flying for anyone else? I have just three weeks of school left before summer vacation. It’ll be a busy three weeks, and break will be here before I know it. For now, I’ll stay in the moment instead of getting ahead of myself. Let’s recap the weekend; it was a fun one, indeed, and included my first Ikea trip. That happened on Sunday, so let me highlight Friday and Saturday first.
Audrey and William spent the day together at my parents’ house on Friday. They thought this was the coolest thing ever since they’re two peas in a pod, and I took them both home with me once I got off of work. They ate a good dinner, so we went to Trader Joe’s and bought mini ice cream cones which was an obvious hit.
Audrey ate hers in 30 seconds, while William took forever, had it dripping all over him, and needed me to eat the chocolate off so he could get to the ice cream. Then they both thought it was the greatest thing ever to throw their cones when they finished the ice cream (who doesn’t eat the cones?!).
Saturday morning included a coffee date because those are the sweetest on the weekend. I ended up running a bunch of errands, as well. William thought he would rearrange part of his play area and become part of it…
The weather was gorgeous on Saturday evening, so we decided to walk to a nearby ice cream joint. It was a lovely stroll, we enjoyed ice cream (as always!), and then a MASSIVE THUNDERSTORM rolled in! Crazy winds, loud thunder, tons of lightning and hail; there was no way we could walk home! Luckily, we were close and ended up getting a ride home. When we finally arrived back at my house, we were greeted with a beautiful double rainbow!
William thought it was pretty awesome, too!
Sunday came and I finally went to Ikea for the first time! It’s been in St. Louis for maybe six months or so (totally guessing there, but it’s still fairly new), and I’ve really been wanting to go to see what all the rave was about. My thoughts? Pretty overwhelming! The whole store is a maze and I never had any idea where I was. It’d be much better to go in there with specific items you need instead of just to look, although it was fun just to look. And I did end up finding a new large kitchen door mat which was perfect. I assume Ikea is similar to Target in that you always find something that you “need.” The prices are crazy cheap! I’m not sure if it means the quality is just as cheap, but I definitely see what the appeal is. William picked out a pack of 100 straws. They were a dollar and a half. I couldn’t say no.
After browsing through the first floor, we took a gigantic elevator up to the showroom. William showed his skills by busting out some pull ups.
He might actually be part monkey. He climbs on and swings from everything he can reach. Literally.
We hung out at home for a few hours after Ikea before going to a birthday party where William could actually climb, swing, and jump. He loved it and was ready for a bath when we got home. And if you needed any further proof that he is, actually, 100% my child…
THE ROBE! MY LIFE!
And now I’m off to sleep as I type this Sunday evening. I’m going to try to be better about posting this week, but I do have a really busy week coming up. I know, you’ll miss me. 😉 Be sure to follow me on Instagram (@itzlinz) as I’m always posting my adventures there!
What’d you do this weekend? Have you ever been to Ikea?
