Max making Valentines.

A Nordstrom Rack is opening up 10 minutes from my house! Ahh so excited about this.

After dinner treat on Valentine's Day.

A brand new French press that I found at a garage sale for $3. Not sure what all the other little gadgets are that came with it. Anyone know?

Painting Max's room and giving it a "big boy makeover." I have been spending SO much time on baby #2's nursery we wanted Max to feel special too.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! We are painting and I am trying to convince my husband Ikea is cool and we should go (I need a giant rug for the baby's room). I heard Ikea has food. Maybe that will persuade him.

Ikea is the BOMB! My husband didn't like it at first either. I had to show him that there are certain things that ikea is great for: pillows, blankets, chairs, tables,bowls for the kitchen, DIY projects, the list goes on. Good luck! Hope you can turn his image of ikea around.

Love that picture of Max making his valentines! So cute! I hope you post pictures of the nursery and the re-do of Max's room! My husband thinks ikea is fun just because it's nice to have so much room to walk around in without him getting bored!

I like Ikea food, and I like the furniture though they usually don't last very long. So nice to be preparing the nursery, have lots of fun!
