Happy Monday! How was everyone's weekend?
This weekend we woke up early Saturday morning, got our coffee's, and drove to Cincinnati to go to IKEA! It was actually both me and Billy's first time there, and it was completely different than we both expected (not in a bad way, just different.) We got there right when it opened and were out of there within two hours, and that my friends is what I like to call a huge SUCCESS!
We had both heard it could be overwhelming, especially when crowded, so our plan was to get what we needed and get out of the there. It wasn't crowded at all, actually, so we even had time to just browse everything else for a while too! Of course I had to pick up a few things not on our list as well. While we liked the store and got exactly what we went for, we weren't crazy about it and probably won't go back unless we find something we have to have.
Afterwards, we met up with our friends from college Kelly and Tim (he played hockey with Billy in college and I met Kelly that way!) who live close by and they took us to an area in Cincy called Over The Rhine for lunch.
We ate at Taste of Belgium and I was so excited because I have heard such good things about this place. Their food was delicious...and since I was missing my chicken and waffles from Poogan's Porch in Charleston, I had to give Taste of Belgium's a try!
...and somehow, I have no idea how, this s'mores pop tart also ended up in front of me. It was just as good as it looks, if you're wondering.
Once we got back to Columbus, Billy worked on assembling our new goodies we picked up (holy parts!) and I took our new BOB Revolution Pro stroller for a little test drive! This stroller is like a dream-it rides so smooth (full review and why we picked it coming soon!) and I'm pretty sure Rocky thinks it's for him...
Sunday consisted of errands and getting things done at the house...organizing, grocery shopping, gym, all the fun stuff. I did make this salad that I first saw on Julia's instagram and it was pretty much the most DELICIOUS salad I've ever had. You guys have to try it...can't go wrong with peaches, tomatoes, and avocado.
Successful and productive weekend I'd say. I can't believe Labor Day is right around the corner!
How was your weekend? Are you a fan of IKEA?
