We came home with a new sisal rug for the family room. It's about 7' x 11' for only $149.00!! This is Hallie who made a new home under the coffee table on the new rug as soon as we laid it down. She started to pick at it like it was a scratching post, but I sent her running upstairs when I screamed at her. She came right back though...hasn't picked at it since.
These are a few other things that we didn't need, but the price was right. Little juice glasses, apple slicer, cork hot pads, candles, tin containers, mini cupcake papers and finger puppets. (The puppets are for a future post, so stay tuned!)
I also purchased a little adjustable chair for my new sewing table (which isn't finished yet...more to come with that too. You can see a little peek behind the chair there)
Oh yeah...they also sell hot cinnamon buns on the way out of the store. I guess they think we needed a sugar rush to make it home. They are $1.00 each or 6 for $4.00. Couldn't help myself. There's only the 2 of us at home too. What was I thinking. We each had a low fat frozen yogurt ice cream cone for the ride home and left the buns in the back of the car. Too tempting to have them up front.
I looked at the label when I came home. Yikes. What was I really thinking. Do you see the serving size? HALF a bun. Who on this planet eats HALF a cinnamon bun. If I ate the whole thing it would be 480 calories and 14 grams of fat. "IF" I ate...not if. I already did. It was yummy!
They're big too.
Also bought my first jar of Lingonberry Preserves. Should have bought more of this. It's now my absolute favorite. Just thought of something. How bad would it be if I spread some of this on a cinnamon bun? Maybe we shouldn't have gone to Ikea...my pants aren't going to fit any more!
