What the Hell Wednesday

Tuesday, August 2, 2011



I had to participate in Christianna's (the girl with the blue bow) 'What the Hell Wednesdays' this week because that's about all I could say to this page in the Ikea catalog...right???? WHO styled that shot? (thanks to one of my besties who JUST MOVED DOWN THE STREET! and her dude who noticed this...so hilarious). and i know it's not quite wednesday but being a working girl is hard ya'll, so i'm posting this real quick in between figuring out how in the world to shop for groceries when the stores close before i get home and swimming in the lake and trying to enjoy the 2nd summer day that we've had this year so far. so! that's that.

also I broke my internet this weekend but then i fixed it. i also saw king of the bongos in concert and it was manu chou's band but without manu chou maybe? and they played king of the bongo and now i'm obsessed with it, go listen!

you? what's up?

Usually Ikea has such a great styling, right? Sounds like you are really busy and swimming in the lake sounds PERFECT! Kisses and sweet dreams:)

STYLE'N said...

hey! hope your new job is going well. And man work really gets in the way of grocery shopping and swimming right? I feel like we should all just have summer off to relax and enjoy the sun!

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

You sounds very very busy! Ha very unusual Ikea ad. What exactly are they selling on that page? Hmmm.

Jamie said...

What was Ikea thinking - priceless.

Charlotte said...

woah... creeper alert!

ps. going swimming is one of my FAVORITE parts of summer and I've only gone ONCE? I'm so disappointed in myself!!

marissa at the boot said...

HAHA! creepy guy?with?baby? enjoy your sun!

ag. said...

um, is he stealing that baby?!

and king of the bongos?...best ever! brings me back to my university days where i had a friend who was obsessed with the song. now i get excited and a little nostalgic any time i hear it!

Christianna said...

Hahahahaha, this is the best! He's so creepy, and the baby makes it even weirder. It's perfect for WTHW, thanks for linking up, even if it is a day early!

LyddieGal said...

That is a strange add, haha.
And I have to say that Bongo bong is the only Manu chao song I've ever heard, but so catchy!

Hollie said...

lol @ ag's comment.. I thought the same thing.

Kelly said...

jeanette from everton terrace said...

Hot mess for sure. It's the "creepy guy steels your baby" room. :)

Kavery said...

Wednesdays are the worst ever. It's like a 'limbo' day- not quite near last weekend and not close enough to the next weekend!

Selma *Crazy Little World Of Mine* said...

Hahahahaha...that is really weird...haha!!!!

Elisa said...

we just got our IKEA in Denver! I was planning on going but people where camping out the day before the grand opening! and over 40,000 expected! CRAZY!

I think it's a great opportunity you got a job, but also means your free time is non existent!

inHERshoes said...

i love "what the hell wednesdays" ... it got me cracking hard. usually everyone's blogs got some inviting, meaningful wednesday series - but i like this one, keepin' it real, ya know what i'm sayin? totally WTF with ikea!

Wander.Lust said...

oooh yea, this photo shoot definitely deserves a what the hell wednesday!

hope you manage to enjoy the summer day. xoxo

ellie said...

interesting tunes!

ivy's closet said...

Hope all is well. Enjoy that swim.

mazzy may said...

Thanks for sharing that band!

Nikki said...

I think it's a sweet photo...but that man is not a daddy and is most definitely stealing that baby!

Ashley said...

YOU broke the internet? Wow, well how did you manage that fool?!?

Renée said...

Haha this looks like a hidden camera photo! xo

Renée said...

Haha this looks like a hidden camera photo! xo

Jenni Austria Germany said...

haha that is terrible. but ikea is weird. doesn't entirely surprise me. i'm still confused by all that swedish.

Ola said...

First of all it is not very estethic, maybe someone had a good idea but it looks terrible

orfeenix said...

Ha ha ha! Life is beautiful!

Tracey said...

Haha, that shot is seriously strange ... maybe they were just checking to see if we were paying attention.

I hope you found some time to swim in the lake and sort the shopping out ... modern life is hard!

PS. Sorry I've been quiet, I'm just back from a blogging break ... but I've really missed you!!
:)

very married said...

you've got a lot going on!

and what were they trying to sell in this ad??

chaoskontrolowany said...

Nice photo;)

Julie said...

I agree, that is one ugly baby's room...and the dad looks so creepy!

Ana Degenaar said...

You're hilarious!

Claire said...

haha not reallly making me want to shop there lol

andrea despot said...

i think it's hilarious that you posted that image because every time i flip through the idea catalog, that one annoys the crap out of me. i thought it was just me thinking he looked kinda creepy, but i guess not :P

Kelle Dame said...

OMG! Hilarious! I thought this was a still from a movie or something! So weird!! I'm loving the What the Hell Wednesday posts!

Punctuation Mark said...

Chelsea Lane said...

CREEPIN' IN THE SHADOWS... haha. this is great.

xoxo

Mary @ stylefyles said...

hahhaha a very deserved "what the hell wednesday" shot.

pop pop portraits said...

that ad is so random, i am mucho confused!!

Cat said...

Wow ... how does anyone get any shopping done around there?!?!? Sounds like a tricky situation ... perhaps you could train the pups to make grocery runs while you and Mark bring home the bacon? ;)

How rad to have your bestie moved in right down the street!

♥ Cat brideblu

ps. a WTH for that photo is warranted indeed ... is that a ram/sheep portrait in the background?

Meghan Bailey said...

Good to know people play off of Wednesdays like me! :D I do WTF Wednesday...I have a cursing mind though. That baby pic freaks me out though.

L said...

That is hilarious and definitely creepy! The weather has definitely been strange this summer.

Cherisse Francisco said...

You are hilarious! I would ask the same question. What are they selling on that picture? They should have a great explanation for that to convince me. Luckily, they have numerous great pieces, I can't do anything but forgive them.

Enjoy the rest of you day sweetie!

mapleandvine said...

hahah.....weird.

Monique said...

I really like king of the bongo! thanks for sharing i've heard it but didn't know who sang it! Ikea editorial: quite strange

bron @ baby space said...

Ha, ha -- awesome.

Monica {bohemian twilight} said...

oh dear, that's quite shoddy work - by the stylist and the editor who passed it through!

Girl living in Oslo said...

Is this from the 70´s ???????

Just wondering:)hehe

Buckeroomama said...

LOL, we are in the midst of renovating our kitchen and I was browsing IKEA's catalog and this image caught my eye, too!

Dale said...

haha, this is a really random post, definitely see why it's "what the hell"? LOL

Great post

That is too funny. How odd and cute at the same time. Will gladly send some heat your way; though, we are getting a break today, sort of. xox Alexandra

Annie said...

hahaha this page is hilarious. I wish we all just had summers off!!

Carolina said...

That is so typical Sweden and I love it! Guys with their babies. You see them everywhere on the street with the baby wagon or babybjörn on the breast. We are very keen on equality here, even in the late 70's :)

He looks a bit scary though.....and behind a curtain?!

Eva @ Four Leaf Clover said...

Woah! I get behind on commenting for a few days and BAM - new website look! COMPLETELY new! I like it!

And I totally know what you mean about this photo, I saw it a while back and was so confused, ha!

Marisa Midori said...

Is this in the new 2012 catalogue?? I must have been so busy looking at the furniture that I didn't even notice this! Hilarious.

Chuzai Living said...

Funny! I didn't think too much of it, but it left me with a strong impression of that room. I actually had to take a second look when I first saw the page in the catalog (I love IKEA catalog) because I wasn't sure what he had in his arms. The baby is so tiny!! Sounds like you've been very busy! By the way, I LOVE your new look on your blog! How creative of you!!

Lynn {hearted girl} said...

woah! okay this dude totally has child kidnapper written all over his face. freaky shizz Ikea, that pervs got some nerve ; )

hilarious share Krystal, ding ding ding - WINNER!

glad you got internet back, i loose my marbles when the thing craps out and understand completely. way to let the stress go with a bongo serenade though. perfect-ness! xoox ♥
