You know you're a blogger when:





Ever have that moment when you realize you're a blogger and you've been sucked in. Whelp, I had that moment Saturday night with James. I was doin' my regular scheduled facebookin' when I came across the #EmptyShelf challenge. You are to empty a shelf on your bookcase and then take a picture of it. Then throughout the year every time you read a book you add it to the empty shelf and take a picture. Y'all know I was hooked. A chance to read the many stacks of books I have and have people help motivate me. Well, I knew I just needed a new bookshelf so I could participate. Actually, I've have been cleanin' and purgin' my room and I needed a new bookshelf before I saw this challenge. The problem I'm havin' is it need to be black and it needs to be able to hold my small tv on top. I went shoppin' around on Saturday but I could find anything that would work or everything was crazy expensive. So at the last minute I decided to go to Ikea with James cause you can always find somethin' at Ikea. Well, if you saw my post on Twitter than you know I didn't leave with a shelf but I sure left with tons of dishes that I can use for food bloggin'. That was the moment I knew I was sucked it.

James was babysittin' so with had to bring her with us. She kept yellin', "'Leshea why you like to take so many pictures! 'Leshea where you go? 'Leshea come on I'm hungy!" Y'all I spent more time takin' pics and filmin' than I did lookin' for a shelf. When we got to the end of the store Jame kept havin' to stop me from throwin' random dishes in the cart. I tried to buy bamboo salad bowls until James reminded me I had no interest in salads until I saw the bowls. I'm tellin' y'all Ikea had to be founded my a blogger. Everything is so pretty and photographs so well.

  4. It sounds like you had too much fun in Ikea. haha! I've heard about the loveliness that is Ikea, but I've never had the privilege of visiting one. Maybe in 2014. And I agree that the book challenge sounds fun. My problem is most of the books I read these days are on my Kindle app.

    1. :)(: Right. It's like Walmart. At least it wasn't junk I bought and I'll get use out of the things. And I'm gonna try to keep up with the challenge.

  6. Ikea is the best. I have to go to gather a few items to organize some things and I will certainly be dragging my camera with me. The lighting in there is amazing!
