Saturday we didn't do much of anything, which is always nice! Sunday was a big day for us. Justin & I got baptized at Newspring Church! We have both been baptized before but mine was when I was eight and his was just not a good memory. It was really amazing to experience something so important with each other. My cousin Morgan, my step-dad, and Justin's dad came to church to support us & celebrate with us. It was a great day!
Today, Labor Day, we labored a bit by shopping! We took a little road trip to Charlotte, NC just to go to Ikea! Have y'all been there before? If you have then you understand why this was worth the 1.5 hour trip. I am in love with one of our purchases. Madi's toys have been in a huge basket behind our recliner in the living room and basically it was just a big eye sore. Wellll Ikea just so happens to have incredible storage options and this is what we found:
The pink and green just make me smile! I love it!! We also got Madi a little bed for her babies. I can't wait to get my hands on some paint to spruce it up with a monogram! :)
For those of you who haven't been to Ikea, you should know-the best thing about Ikea are the prices. Everything is really affordable. The baby bed was only $20. Compare that to an American Girl Doll bed and we got a steal!
Madi really lucked out on this trip. The bathroom shelving I wanted was too big to fit in my car so we are going to have to go back another day (oh darn!) with Justin's truck.
Now we are home and tired from traveling, but really enjoying an "eye-sore free" living room! I hope y'all had a great Labor Day!
