    Oh I’ve completed my sale many a time wondering how I was going to fit it all in my car. Once my mom and I bought a pre assembled returned and on sale in the sale section, a dresser. LOL we bought it thinking we could fit it in the trunk of her Malabu as long as we laid the seats down. LOL oh we were dreaming. We had to call my dad to make the 45-60 minute drive to Ikea to load the dresser in the truck and then we all make the 45-60 minute drive back home. LOL Good times at Ikea

    Aw, I was going to go to IKEA today and we decided to save it for another time. But LOVE that bookshelf! We found a huge version on Craigslist and have loved it ever since! Such a sweet bro of yours to help you with the huge boxes of furniture. Congrats on your new ikea goodies, they’ll probably be your best friends forever. 😀

    Soo many bloggers are going to Ikea atm!! That’s such a gorgeous bookcase- totally my stlye!
    Bah, I really hate how men can just…lift stuff..with like, no effort. It’s really not fair! It always makes me feel so feeble 😛

    Gotta love those Ikea prices :) The nearest one to my house is 45 minutes away on a good day……actually it’s probably a good thing that it’s that far away and I only visit once a year. Have a great run!

    OK, the suspense is killing me. What goodies did you pick up at Lululemon? I would LOVE to visit the outlet one day. Until then, I stalk the online Loot section =)

    I have that bookcase in white…I love it and think we may end up with another one – perfect mix of storage and display space. Spotted some mirrored door cupboards for this last time I was in ikea and they’ve been playing on my mind ever since.

    Great choice for storage, you’ll probably be able to use it for a multitude of purposes for many years, and YAY for little brothers!

    I really do want to come visit you sometime soon and help with those organization plans! I will require a small budget to do so :)

    Awesome lunch, awesome dinner! And I agree – sometimes ya just need to have some steak!

    Love the new bookshelves, looks like it will control clutter better than the desk! You are so disciplined bringing your own lunch, smart gal!

    I satisfied my steak craving this weekend also…only at Stoney River in Atlanta, best steakhouse around, IMO! Nothing like a steak on the grill to indulge once in a while.

    Enjoy the rest of your free weekend time.

    I love the bookcase, it’s so much nicer (no offence, it just fits the space better!) than the computer desk. Looks like you guys had a great BBQ.

    IKEA is heaven on earth. By the way– your brother is really really handsome!

    I love that you brought your lunch with you instead of dining out. I do that all the time as well!

    The shelf looks great! :) I need one myself–I’m starting to get lots of books and have no place to put them. 😉

    I say live it up with the froyo! Yes there’s such a thing as balance but when it comes to desserts this is pretty decent! I’m in San Diego with my husband right now and we’re been getting our daily pinkberry fix…guiltfree! :)
