Ramblings of a Suburban Mom

Today I’m smiling because:

~B and I are off to the casino this morning! I can’t remember when the last time just him and I were together. It’s been a minute that’s for sure!

~I picked up the cutest little mugs from IKEA yesterday (yes I went back). How could you not see this and smile. And they were only $4.99. For all 4!!!


~I’m smiling because of Teen Mom!  Kailyn and Vee getting along?  I love it!

~We went on a walk after dinner last night and even though WB ended up totally mud covered, we had a great time.

L rode his bike!
L rode his bike!

~B told me yesterday not to buy another IKEA RASKOG cart unless I had a plan for it. Oh, I had a plan! I turned it into an art cart for the basement!!


~The garage is slowly getting filled with garage sale stuff! I am loving seeing it all out of my house! Totally makes me smile.

~B brought us all home presents from Seattle and we all loved them!  He did awesome!  B and L have already built the Space Needle, we’ve read the book and I have moved the coffee mug to my office!


That’s it from here!  What’s got you smiling today?

    you mentioned target clearance a few days back did you get a toy haul see them online

    1. Jennifer

      I picked up a few things. I don’t go as crazy for the toy clearance as I do for the holiday ones.

      1. cindy

        thanx ..I read about it this morning

  2. ummmmm that’s totally how mine is supposed to look. i performed my weekly “is it back in stock ritual” and the dresser we need is back & on sale. of course we can’t find the receipt for the one we already have (three drawer dressers we want for night stands).

    1. Jennifer

      LOL!!! the kids are obsessed with it!”

      Can you return without a receipt? They give you store credit for that don’t they?

      1. brandy

        i thought you had to have a receipt. we cannot find it anywhere. which is crazy because it had deductible expenses on it. it wasn’t in my folder. thats because my husband checked out and shoved it in his pile of stupid receipts that he saved which i probably threw out.

        1. Jennifer

          That’s what the policy says, but I swear I have returned there without a receipt.

    I love your Art Cart. That is totally awesome and the mugs just to stinkin’ cute. I’m really going to try and stop in when I’m down this week but I’m only there for a day so not sure how that will work out oh and I’m also bringing back a ton of stuff for my sister’s new apartment she’s moving into next weekend. LOL might be a tight fit.
    If it wasn’t raining here we would totally walk but its just too wet and nasty. Its so cool but just too wet.

    1. Jennifer

      Did your sister graduate or us she still in school???

      1. Jenny

        Still in school but she goes to school at NCState up here by me and is moving into an apartment so while I’m in Clt to go to a convention on Friday I will bring back a load of her furniture in the back of my car. She is changing majors so could add a year but should be out in 2 or so depending on if she decides to do the Disney college program she’s looking at 😉

    How were you able to store the items on the side of the cart? Is it magnetic? I think that would work out better to use than what I am currently using which is a huge plastic 3 drawer storage cart. It’s deep, but can be hard to find items.

    1. Jennifer

      Yep, it’s magnetic! It’s all metal.

  5. Kelley

    Where did you get the side holders for the cart? They’re awesome and would be really helpful on my fridge! 🙂

    1. Jennifer

      IKEA! They are $3.99 for 3. Such a great deal.

  6. Wendy

    where do you find the magnetic containers? Thank you!

  7. Justine

    Hello! I am going to have so much fun copying this cart for our almost 4 year old! Where did you get the little pails on the top shelf? They fit perfectly and I want to maximize space just as you did here. Thanks!

    1. Jennifer

      I believe they are from IKEA. In the garden section.

  8. Shelley

    Where did you get the stainless buckets on the top of the cart? I have been looking for some like that.
