Can't wait! I love the IKEA catalog. I live to just sit there for a while and go through everything like a little kid at Christmas.

I second that on the autistic child. I have an autistic child and there are certain places I would not bring him to, but there are others that I do. I'm not going to keep my kid locked up in a cage because people do not know how to deal with the public.

I usually do NOT post negative or snarky comments, but reading this, I got a little angry. I can understand that a cookie cutter house is boring and perhaps you are not allowed to make any changes, BUT you are moving because your husband is brave enough to fight for this country. He is certainly a better person than I could ever be when it comes to the military. I'm chicken shit and could never do that. Secondly, there are people without a roof over their heads and you are probably getting this house for free, so please do not complain. Use your furniture and temporary color to make it home.

FABULOUS post and many people need to read it over and over again. I have IKEA stuff and love it and hate people who say "well just save money to buy a $5,000 chair, etc.". I don't want to OR cannot and choose to use my money towards mortgage, groceries, etc. Just because I cannot afford or choose not to save for something so ridiculously overpriced does not make my home any less gorgeous.

I usually will buy my invites, not make them, but I ALWAYS send out paper invites. I think it's more personal and I agree that people usually like getting invites in the mail instead of bills! HA!
