Saturday, Deidra and I embarked on a journey which ended at a glorious place. This may be hard for some people to believe, but neither one of us had ever been to IKEA.

I am constantly reading design blogs which reference IKEA as a great place to purchase all things home decor on a the low low, but the problem with us stopping in is that the closest one is in the next state. I can't figure out why Birmingham doesn't have one, but I wish it did!

I attended a wedding brunch for a friend Saturday morning and as soon as it was over I met Deidra and we headed to Atlanta, GA to see just what this IKEA talk was all about.

To say we loved it would be a vast understatement.

The main reason we went was for a specific piece of furniture. Two bedside tables to be exact. (for a project I will detail in a later post).

The sad news is that some man bought the entire stock about five minutes before we made it to the warehouse. I'm not sure what a man would need with that many bedside tables, but he really put a damper on my Ikea excursion.
This photo was taking prior to finding our that mere minutes early what I needed (and drove two and half hours to purchase) had been sold out. I was blissfully unaware.

After spending several hours in Ikea we had really worked up an appetite. We headed over to Atlantic Station (since it was right beside Ikea) for an early dinner. We opted to eat a Mexican restaurant called, Rosa Mexicano.

After we were seated we realized that the waiter would be making fresh guacamole at our table. 

This happen to remind of us of an episode of The Real Housewives of ATL, in which Kim and Sheree eat at a restaurant that made their guacamole at the table... so we asked the waiter if it was the same place, and it just so happen to be.

The waiter gave us the inside scoop on the housewives. Apparently, Kim wears way too much makeup, looks a lot older in person (probably due to her chain smoking) and neither one of them was very nice. According to this article Kim was a real [expletive] during their visit to the restaurant. The guacamole was delicious, by the way.

After dinner we headed home so that we could hit up a get together to watch football! It really made for a fun weekend!
