The delightful Colony Palms Hotel in Palmy S.
Lemonade Stand at the Parker.
Round Hill in Jamaica...take me there!

geniuses people will drive to Houston and bring your Ikea goods back to you (if you live in Nola, BR, or the Gulf Coast). They charge 20% of your Ikea total if you buy up to $1,000.00 worth of goods and 15% of your Ikea total if you buy over $1,000.00 of merch.
No, no, I did know know about this. [See the Lamar series here]
I will, however, be using this service if I am in desperate need of certain Ikea items (Expedit shelves...more bath mats, scales, planters, outdoor loungers...) and want to deprive myself of Swedish fish and a 700 mile drive in a rental truck.
P.S. Countdown begins til tax day and, oh, Beau's birthday too.
(Oldest lamest joke in the book is to call someone who was born on April 15 and tell them Happy Tax Day!)
