The real unveiling

Okay, I'm back :) 

Sorry about that...but I had to sleep to be able to function at work :)

And now, for the pictures!!

Are you so excited?? 

It's an exciting thing, so if you need to get comfortable, grab a drink of ______, a blanket, whatever you need, I'll allow you to. I can wait 

la la la

So, first things first, the chair:

Soooooooohohohohohooho much better than a folding chair

The tower holder:

I've been wanting that bookshelf for I don't know how long...and I finally got it :)

And, for the grand finale, the desk:

*sigh* Isn't it beautiful??

We got it all at Ikea (my new vice) and my goal was to not pay more than $200

I had a little bit of tax returns left over after paying off a loan and used that to pay for it

(don't tell Papa Smurf...he might kill me if he found out)

I was really proud because with all 3 of those things, plus a little whisk I bought my mom and a dustpan and broom for me at work, my total came to $198.40 (give or take on the cents)

I love when that happens!!

And for a good look at how all of them look together:

It was like going from living in a rat infested sewer to living in a beautiful, immaculate mansion...that's how amazing it is

Seriously, I could never go back to this

It makes me shudder just to think about it

It took a little bit of effort to get all the parts together

But, with Boyfriend's help, we got it all put together by midnight which was very happy indeed :)

I was going to do this in Dear.... letters, and I just realized I didn't...hopefully Ms. Dazee will forgive me :)

Anywho, I hope you had a fabulous day and have an amazing night...I must go get ready for bed :)

It is beautiful. You did great. That chair looks really comfy. Thanks for letting me breath now. That was a close call.

Simply gorgeous. I am so excited for you! Love it all and sounds like you got a smokin' deal, too. All I had to do was read the word IKEA in your post and I started drooling on my keyboard thinking about the cinnamon rolls. Thank God we don't live near our IKEA!

I haven't read your blog in a little while because school has been crazy, but I definitely approve of the upgraded office. I'm not sure what the old desk was with the large, golden hoop earrings, but your new looks like it provides much better leg room. Also, the chocolate covered strawberries sound so good right now.

PS I love IKEA too. They have some great deals. It's an acquired taste, but I'm glad you've acquired it.
