My real reason for going into IKEA today was to buy a children's tent. I would like to spend some time outdoors working on things and Brandon's outdoor graduation party is Saturday. To keep the babies with me without worrying about their sun exposure, I bought their $10 tent. It's a cute little igloo. :) While there I may have splurged on a few more items.....

LAMP SHADES!!!!!! Laugh if you will, but it's so exciting to be updating our living room lamps!
I'll give you a sneak peak of the lamp shades but you'll have to stick around for true before and after photos. I have some work to do with the lamps. Walmart was kind enough to supply me with a couple cans of spray paint. I'll let you know how it goes.
We also stopped at a really cute antique/boutique/consignment shop next to Thanksgiving Point. There was a good diversity of things and although there were some pricier items, a good portion was actually reasonable! I almost got 2 signs that said "My prince, my joy" and "my princess, my joy". I decided to hold off.
Anna and Brandon let us stay while we waited for JT to show up. After fixing the A/C issue JT came over and they grilled hamburgers for us! Anna experimented with making corn on the cob in sea salt water. I'M A FAN! I'll definitely be trying it again. We're so glad to have them here! They're awesome family and friends. We'll definitely miss them when they head off to Vanderbilt.
