Mattress Hunting and Adult Disney...aka IKEA!

Normally I post a lot on Monday mornings since it is my equivalent of Friday night (in other work the next day). However, this Monday morning I am going to be out playing! 

We were originally going to go on a cruise for our anniversary in June. We recently decided to postpone the cruise a year and buy some much needed things for the house (and blow some money having fun) instead. We are first going to IKEA. IKEA is an AMAZING furniture store that seemingly popped up over night. It is literally like Disney World for Adults. You walk in and they have a measuring tape and pencil and worksheet waiting for you. You start walking around through a maze of wonderfully designed living rooms, kitchens, study rooms, bathrooms, etc. They have EVERYTHING you can think of for a home...and they have it not only well displayed, but cheap. Sorry for the run-on sentences IKEA excites me. Lol. Last time I was there we had a full cart and a furniture cart with an entertainment center and nice book/entertainment shelving. We spend a little over $300! If you haven't been, see if there is one near you and go. You won't regret it. We are going to get a couch and look at mattresses. Then we are going to The Spaghetti Warehouse for lunch.

Now, on another note that has nothing to do with furniture....I bought my 30 Seconds to Mars tickets today for the end of April. 30 Seconds to Mars is actor Jared Leto's band (yes, My So Called Life's Jared Leto). If you thought he was a decent actor, he is a million time better on stage. I got to see them for the first time in December of last year. I was a fan, but not a huge one. Their performance changed me. I don't think I will EVER be able to pass up seeing them live again. Of course, Jared is gorgeous..but he also has an amazing voice. Check them out and if you ever have a chance to see them, don't miss it.
