Ta-da! Golden Delicious Hallway!
John loves it when that happens.
Remarkably, that was only Sunday morning, so after Julian's nap (it's possible we snoozed too...) we all got gussied up and headed over to our local IKEA to pick up that jute rug I mentioned yesterday. SIDE NOTE: We had a RECORD-BREAKING trip to IKEA. If only someone had been timing us! Not kidding, it took us longer to park than it did for us to whip in there, grab my jute rug, pick up a life-sized stuffed dog for Julian and zoom through the "3 Items or Less" line. In and out in under 15 minutes. We didn't even have to wait in the crazy line for the elevator. I am ONLY going to IKEA on Sunday evenings from now. And am only buying three items or less. DONE. MANIFESTO WRITTEN. End of discussion.
Anyway... About that rug: I'm pretty sure this particular jute rug is essentially the best bargain ever. It's big-- 6'7" X 9'10"-- and at $129.00, I'd say that's a heck of a steal. It also has the look of something far fancier than IKEA-- if you keep your eyes peeled, you'll see similar jute rugs in Elle Decor and House Beautiful all the time.
However, those guys are paying about 10 times my IKEA price tag, so I'm feeling rather smug right about now.
