A Big Thank You!

First off, a BIG thank you to all of my followers! You all just hit the 300 mark! That makes me smile : )
It is so nice of you to come by for a visit and I really love your comments and feedback. 
Bloggers really are the best kind of people ...so supportive and encouraging. It strikes me often that even though we might live in different areas of the United States,  and  in far away countries,  we all still share a lot in common - namely, the love of our families and making our homes a beautiful place to come home to. I have often thought that if bloggers ruled the world we would have world peace! There you have it ... the answer to world peace! 

 I am off to Ikea tomorrow! The one here in Charlotte has been open for over a year (I think) but I have never been! I will be spending several hours there and will probably go back on Saturday with Mr. F.
I can't wait!

I hope your week is off to a good start!



  1. Congrats!!
    I am excited for you on the Ikea venture I haven ever been to one either
    The nearest one is about 200 miles away so I can't wait to hear all about it from you have fun!!

  2. Very cool! I look forward to hearing you post about it later. I've never been to one either. The nearest one to me is.uhhh, the one you are going to! Enjoy!

  3. I'm soooo jealous you have an Ikea. We are suppose to get one. I mean, they keep SAYING that but it's all saying and no doing!

  4. Congratulations Pam! You are so right....bloggers are the best kind of women. I had such a poor experience on hate my space toward the end there, and starting my own blog restored my faith in all man kind:)

  5. Congrats on your followers!!! Oh my word, you will LOVE Ikea!!! We say it as EEkaya,as that is how it pronounced in Germany and where we first went. Everyone makes fun of me and now I try to say it here the right way and I forget! I love Ikea. Just go slow and enjoy! It is a big "follow the yellow brick road" kind of thing. You will see what I mean, but you will find the neatest stuff at the best prices!!!!! I am so jealous! Have fun!

  6. Congrates Pam, 300 means something special... your blog is simple and in many ways with very realistic approach... Congrates once again and for the new car too...Love

  7. We bloggers love you back :) As for IKEA, I was there last Friday and I am sure you will find some great deals...

  8. Oh I'm so jealous, our closest one is nearly 2 hours from us, I can't wait to make another trip to it and will start saving my pennies to do so...

    Can't wait to hear what you find.

  9. I've never been to Ikea. I think the closest one is in Houston which is about 5 hours away.

  10. Was amused to see that you were heading to IKEA in Charlotte. I live @ LKN and have never been either, but it's on my bucket list, as is Gibson Mill and the Sleepy Poet. Enjoy shopping on my behalf. Love seeing the 'r's displayed in your home, since that's my initial too. Your blogging space is awesome. Was just trying to convince my oldest daughter that we need an island in our bonus room for crafts, games, etc.
