My Trip to Chi-Town

Okay, I know that it has been FOREVER since I have posted a new blog and am begging for forgiveness. I know the best part of blogs are the pictures and I honestly haven't taken any, thus the lack of blogging. No excuses though. A little update though. Right now Jonathan is in Utah at the International Trombone Festival, and I am just hanging out. We bought Jonathan a ticket out of Chicago because it was so much cheaper. So I drove him to Chicago and spent a few days with Kim and Chris. It was a nice break and it is always fun to hang out with family. I was really excited though, because I got to make a trip with Kim to Ikea and buy the bookshelves that I have wanted for a while. They barely fit in my car, but I was able to make the drive with them home. I wanted them to be a surprise for Jonathan so I had to put them together, of course. I got all but the last piece on pretty easy, and the last piece just wouldn't go on. It wasn't lining up. I was getting so frustrated. Needless to say I had quite the meltdown. I had been trying for an hour to get the top on and it just wouldn't go! So, I called Jonathan in tears for numerous reasons; I couldn't get the top on, I made a dent in the top in all of my hammering, and then I called Jonathan for support which no longer made it a surprise. Rough night. I did end up getting it all put together and I love it! It worked itself out. Here are some pictures of the finished project.
P.S. Another perk of having Jonathan fly out of Chicago, is that I get to go back and see Kim and Chris again! Double Trip!!
