on a monday.

i have a really good feeling about this week. i got a new set of drawers over the weekend that i'm hoping will help me get things a little bit more organized around here. switching to a smaller purse a few months ago somehow did wonders for simplifying my life, so i'm really expecting a lot from this set of drawers. :)

my husband and i are still in that stage of telling ourselves we shouldn't buy things for our apartment until we are in a more "permanent" place, but i've been wanting these drawers for over a year now and i figured maybe it was time to get rid of my old plastic ones i got from walmart back in 2006. (!!!) plus it was a darn good excuse to get ourselves one of these goodies.

happy monday! <3

  7. I'm going to IKEA tomorrow and think I might have to get these. My husband I always have our work stuff in the living room. This would be a great way to get it all put away realistically!

  11. good for you for buying them now. i've been dragging my feet on purchasing furniture here because we've been so up in the air on finding a new place or not. i think i'll follow you example and buy something soon! :)

  14. We're like that too - we tell ourselves not to buy things as when we've moved we'll get something proper. But we're not planning on moving, so we really should just get the things we need! Ha!
    Love the drawers :)

  15. Oh goodness -- I love the new set of drawers. So modern and sleek...and I'm a sucker for white furniture as it is. I'm a big fan of simplifying as well as organizing. Hoping your week is absolutely lovely!

  17. I checked those out at Ikea today and they are on my MUST GET list! Thanks for pointing them out! Also... thanks for the nice comment on my blog. That tuna burger recipe is from Gwyneth Paltrow's cookbook if you were curious! We've made them several times... soooo good!

  19. I'm so happy you found something that will work for your life!
    sometimes, you just know you need that piece of furniture, or that specific bag, or whatever it is- it's like you found what you've been forever searching for!
