Our Date Book- March- The Ikea Date
The IKEA Date
Do you need some Date Inspiration? One of my goals for the year is to utilize Our Date Book and go on a date each month. A great way to be intentional about spending quality time together and going on adventures is to go on Dates. This was the main reason I originally made the Date Book with 12 premade date ideas.
I am sharing our March Date in this space. I love how it came together and turned out. If you would like to see the full story and how you can make a "Date Book" check out the following link:

My Husband's Birthday is January so he was the first to receive the following email for his birthday month. What an awesome idea. You get a free meal, plus cake! And on top of that you get $15.00 to spend however you would like. No strings attached.
You have the entire birthday month to utilize this offer. We went towards the end of the month since I had a doctors appointment at OHSU (Oregon Health & Science University). We decided we would go after the appointment since we would be up in the Portland area. I love the eating areas in Ikea. All the big windows that let all the natural light shine in.

We chose to eat first and then to go shopping. My Husband was gracious to eat the free meal so I could get a side salad and a fruit bowl. The fruit is now self served on the soup and salad cart in the middle section. I filled both bowls to the brim! We enjoyed our meal. Not bad for $5.15. And don't forget you get free Coffee or Tea, if you are apart of the Ikea Family Member. We love to sit in the window seating area that over looks the parking lot and the beautiful Portland sky.
|I love my Husband. He always likes to hide behind things in pictures!!!|
We looked at all the plants and nothing stuck out. I knew exactly what I wanted and I didn't see it. There were some smaller plants that were similar but after researching we found out there were a different variety. The plants were just not the look I was wanting. We were about to move on when an employee right before eyes rolled out a huge cart of plants and guess what was on the top part of the cart. Yes, big Snake Plants! Thank you Lord. I could not believe the price. $7.99 each!
None of the big candles fragrances stuck out to us so in the end we grabbed a bag of coconut scented tea lights. Can always use more tea lights!
|Thank you Lord, such an amazing price too!|
I have had my eye on the black and white native style looking place mats at Ikea for a while now. We ended up discovering a table runner in the same print and picked that up as our first item. I love how it looks on our dining room table. I also have my eye on matching looking pillow covers for our living room. It is such a fun print.

|Thank you Ikea for a wonderful Date!|
