January Currently Time!



Well, it's that time ! Currently! First, how fast did December go? And how can it be 2014?! Wow! 2013 was a bit of a mixed bag for me - some low lows and some great things happened too, but overall I am hoping for a more positive 2014 in general! How about you?


Here's my currently! Be sure  to check out Farley's Currently and see the whole link up.




Here's the IKEA desk and bookshelf I got. I actually got the 4x4 bookshelf though. Mom and I went and picked up the bookshelf at IKEA and brought it home and inside ourselves. By the way, the heavier of the 2 boxes was 75 pounds! We had to open it and take stuff in a a couple trips but the second box we did in one trip together. They didn't have the desk I want so I ordered it from online and expect it next week.

Now, we are having the crazy snow right now. I do not recall in sixteen years ever having a snow day the first day after vacation. I also don't remember coming back to school on a Thursday but I am imagining we did at some point! 

This was the storm in Illinois I believe before it got here.


Here's a map of the expected snowfall - thanks WPRI ! Not as bad as the huge store last February but still a lot to shovel and deep snow for dog walking.

  1. I love the desk/bookshelf that you got for IKEA! I wish we had an IKEA close...the nearest one is about 3 hours away. I tried to get my hubby to take me on a overnight trip and us go, but who wants to drive in Atlanta traffic.

    The weather has been really weird lately. I hope your power stays on through the storm.

    1. Heather, I just stopped by your blog too! I heard Atlanta traffic was crazy! I can see why. You can get stuff sent o you but it can be pricy. The shipping for the desk by itself was only $25. However the bookcase if I wanted it shipped to me was $174 for shipping. That's why it went down to the IKEA store myself!

    2. I went down to the store, not it went down. Oops!

  2. Hello!! I found your blog through Currently! I have been wanting an Expedit bookshelf and desk!! I love how it looks! I live in Ohio and we are getting slammed with snow, too. I think we have over a foot now. We aren't supposed to go back until Monday, but it sounds like there is more snow coming Sunday night! I won't be too sad if we don't go back right away! :) Happy New Year!

  3. I have to go to IKEA one day - we have one a few hours away, but we are always doing something else when we go near it. I need to plan an IKEA day! LOL! Stay warm and safe!

    1. Kelly, if you go to IKEA, I would say leave a good 2 1/2 hours to be in the store -if you know exactly what you want. It is an adventure and you can't really squeeze it in with other errands. Its worth it though!
      Happy new Year!

  4. Love the shelves! I'll have to check out IKEA. However, I really don't have any business buying furniture right now! I think tuition bills will have to come first!
