Want all the cuteness of a puppy - without the mess?

It's hard to resist a cute puppy. They're just so... well, cute! Stumbled upon this today though. You get to ohhh and ahhh, and think about how cute and sweet they are, without actually having to own one!

Puppies

Hmm... Not sure that this is a good idea.

I've added that to my bookmarks.

I'd been an Ikea virgin until just a very short while ago, even though one had been open within driving distance for almost a year. I think a part of me knew exactly how much I was going to like it, and was avoiding the temptation.

I finally went when we opened the studio. We bought ALL our furniture there. And it all fit in the back of a Suburban, even the couch (which came in a box!). I was in organizational knick knack heaven. It was a little bit easier to resist spending a ton of money since we were buying stuff for the studio, and of course, I didn't have any anyways (stupid financial aid - but that's another day's rant!).

I then went with another friend while she was in town. Again - I didn't spend a penny. I was very proud of myself. But the urge to go back has been strong. I'm trying to justify going there (It's almost an hour away) just for wrapping paper. I'm nuts. Not quite certifiable, but close!

So, bookmarking a blog that shows you more really cool things to do with things you find at Ikea probably isn't the best idea. Especially since that money thing is still an issue.

I've given up.

I can't make my baby stay a baby.

There. I've admitted it.

I've spent a long time trying to convince him to stay a baby, and it's just not going to work. He's going to be a toddler. In a little over a week. It's amazing just how quickly the time has gone, and it's sad knowing how quickly the time ahead of us is going to go too.

You would think after so many babies that I'd be used to this, but I'm not. I'm not sure exactly what it is I'm afraid of losing as they grow up, but there's something there. I want to hold them close to me forever! I know realistically that can't happen, but I can dream, can't I?
