Hodge Podge

This post is going to be full of random stuff, so here we go!

Wednesday morning we headed to IKEA to exchange our faulty chair. It actually made for a really nice family outing, since IKEA is so family-friendly. It was Jason's first time too. By the time we got there it was almost time for lunch and we were starved. They have a great little nook for kids to eat and watch a movie (flick of the day was Monsters Inc.). Eden loved it!

Chowing down some french fries, applesauce and apple juice. Lunch of champions. :)

Harry is still a bit small for the kid area, so he ate with Jason and me in his own little chair.

Jason getting ready to eat his lunch - a spinach, turkey, and fontina panini - YUM!

Although we picked up a few other little things, this guy was the main purpose of our visit:

I LOVE this chair! I am so excited to finally have a spot by the fireplace to read. I have to admit I have already spent hours reading in it (Hunger Games trilogy, if anyone is interested).

Next random item: I got the orange towels put into the baskets in the kids/guest bathroom. Looking better!

Last random bit: for the first time since he was born (at 10 months old), I found Harry rolled over in his bed after naptime! He doesn't like to be on his tummy, but I managed to get him to smile enough to snap a picture. He has been slower than Eden when it comes to independent movement, so this was a big step for him. In fact, all week he has been moving more and being more adventurous. Every few minutes I hear him griping when he falls face forward on the floor trying to reach for something. Sounds horrible, but I am glad he is at least trying to move some on his own!


  1. Oh. My. Gosh. I *love* the chair!!! And the turquoise pillow. ;-) I'd probably spend hours reading there too! The towels in the bathroom look great. I really like that pop of color against the gray walls.

    The kiddos are getting so big!! Eden's hair is looking so LONG! Give them some hugs and kisses from Auntie Sarah! =)

    1. Thanks! And I will be happy to kiss all over the kiddos for you. :)

  2. Hey Anna-
    LOVE the orange in the bathroom. Since you have some space at the bottom of the shower curtain, I couldn't help but think of this shower curtain I saw on

    An orange ruffle would be SO cute at the bottom! Way to go :)

    1. Funny, I noticed how horrible the bottom of the curtain looked after reading Katie's blog post yesterday, haha! I read her blog too, and liked her idea (although I hate the material she used). I may have to enlist your sister to sew me a little addition onto the curtain (since I don't sew at ALL)! :) Thanks for the tip!
