Ikea trip = success!

When we finally hit the road today, we had a mission - return close to $600 of stuff that we had originally bought for the kitchen (that we decided against using so we would have more storage and not another room in need of a ceiling re-do!) and buy other stuff instead, of course =)

We got the wall mount for our TV (we almost forgot it a second time), a new trash bin for our bathroom (oh the excitement!), a container for dog food, a new organizer for the laundry room, some knobs for our bathroom, and... drumroll please...

Purple curtains for the dining room (hopefully they will actually look the color that they are in real life when they are hung up and can be photographed in the daylight)!

Tomorrow, the process of fixing our sad great room ceiling begins.

So, after getting Yofuria in celebration of 2 years, we moved all the furniture out of the great room!

Tomorrow, while Travis is working, Winston is guarding, and Carlos is mudding our ceiling, I am going to start on the kitchen cabinets.  Important tip #1: when you buy the Rustoleum product, you hafta get the paint tinted before leaving the store.  Thankfully, Travis just got out into the parking lot before he read that on the box.  =)

Oh, and I am going to begin the nagging request for installing our new microwave =)
