Much Love Monday

I love: Going to Ikea. I love their displays, their meatballs, their furniture...and I love playing with the trolleys when you pick your furniture from the self serve area.

Jason let me take a photo. He has a bandage because he had just given blood that morning, through our church.

And I would ride the trolley down the empty aisles. I look a bit awkward here because my trolley was going the wrong way and my bag was not helping with the balancing.

I love our new white coffee table and our new mirror which were our purchases from Ikea. Next item will be a buffet, then hopefully a chest of drawers and some bedside tables.

Other things I love
* Being a kid - why we had fun riding trolleys
* Writing letters
* Eating mini homemade pavlovas! I have to learn how to make them
* Talking until 1:30 am with friends (even though I was so tired and was feeling a bit cold)
* Planning the restoration of an old round dining table and chairs (I have big plans)
* Getting caught up in re watching Heroes season 1
* Chandeliers. Thinking of getting one for our lounge room.
* The tiny trolley the little toddler girl was pushing in Bunnings. And me trying to take a subtle photo on my iPhone.
You can't see the picture all that well but it was the cutest thing. Bunnings is a large hardware store here and she just looked so cute pushing the trolley along.

Haha maybe I should say I love trolleys because they are mentioned a lot in this post.

Anyway, for more Much Love Monday go here. Have a wonderful week lovelies :)

Ha ha, my boyfriend and I ride the trolleys too at Ikea! And sometimes when we grocery shop and split up then find each other again (provided there is no one else in the aisle and whatever we found is non-breakable) we shout, "Go long! Go long!" and toss the loaf of bread or whatever to the person with the cart and split up again. Most people think we are immature, I just say we are young at heart, lol.

jozen said...
