|Lantern for Block Candle|
This is going on the new wall unit, somewhere. First I need to find a candle for it because it didn't occur to me to pick one up while I was right there in the candle section, surrounded by candles. D'oh!
We are always running out of nice hangers. We have plenty of wire hangers, you know the kind that give your blouses the lumpy shoulder syndrome? Yeah, not in the least bit attractive.
|Bendable Chopping Board|
I got the red chopping boards. I like to have a separate board for meats and the red stands out in our kitchen. I also have the same board in white for fruits and a huge wooden one for the veggies.
I needed silicone-tipped tongs for my nonstick pans. Gary insisted these were awesome so I'm giving them a whirl.
As if Ikea wasn't awesome enough, we stopped on the way home and I was treated to pizza at The Express. Unbelievably yummy. We split one red pizza (prosciutto, artichoke hearts, black olives, mushrooms) and a white pizza (mozzarella, pancetta, arugula, red onions, asiago). They were both fabulous but we especially enjoyed the white pizza. What a great change from the usual.
To top off the day, my mom got me these flowers.
It takes a pretty amazing mom to make her 42-year-old daughter feel like a special little girl. Thanks mom. :)
