Homeowner Joys

I confess, I didn't have much to blog about today.

...until I found a certain something that I ordered for our house and I can hardly contain my excitement. A lamp.

Say what.....?!? {insert squeeking tires sound}

Yup, you heard read right... a lamp. What is the world coming to? I, the goddess that is notorious for being handbag, clothing, and shoe obsessed, is officially more excited about receiving a lamp in the mail than the cute lacy skirt I ordered last week {that is taking forever to get to me I may add}.

Is this what I have to look forward to for the rest of my life as a homeowner? Getting giddy about new pots and pans, kitchen gadgets, and lamps? If so, I'M DOWN!

You see, I've been stalking this lamp for quite some time ever since Sarah helped me find it. It's from IKEA and the closest store to us is about a 3 hour drive. Ehh...not bad, but not great. Of course it's not available to order online either. I wasn't sure if I wanted to make the trip or if I "needed" this so-called lamp that much. I found it on Ebay but you know how Ebay goes..not sure if you are getting exactly what you pay for. I was hesitant.

Until today, on this magical morning before work, that I found a home decor seller on Amazon that sells this amazing lamp and it just so happens they have 1 in stock. ADDED TO CART IMMEDIATELY. and the angels sang...

This bad boy will be the new addition to our office....

Ikea Maskros Pendant Lamp


Isn't it a BEAUTY?

{if you don't like it, please don't tell me, because I will cry.}

and here it is featured in some rooms....

Le sigh....


{I will show you our new office space once it's completed..and now I'm one step closer. A big thanks to my husband for understanding this was a do or die purchase and will be an excellent addition to our home}

PS- It does sort of resemble the flower in my header, no?!


Until the next lamp or kitchen gadget..
