Ikea, how I love thee!
So we shipped the older kids off to the grandparents house to play and we took my nephew and my oldest niece with us for some shopping and a bite to eat. I was told that if you are going to go to Ikea you need to have the Swedish meatballs. And who am I to argue!
So off to Ikea we went. I love the way they market the store, everything is set up in "rooms" and you can see all of the things that are normally huddled together in sterile packaging out at work in the possible perfect environment for you. I do have to say that I would enjoy shopping ALOT more if more stores were set up this way. And for those of us with the impossible can't make up your mind for shit hang up, this helps!
I didn't really consider much in the way of furniture while we were there, mainly because I had to fly home and how the hell was I suppose to get a new dresser on the plane? The kids section was so much fun! This began my new plan for Boots room, it was born out of this:
And then we had lunch, and as promised these were absolutely the best Swedish meatballs I have ever had! And then on to more shopping, all with out leaving the building... Genius.
Anyhow I managed to keep my glee under control until we got to the kitchen section, then all hell broke loose! Every corner I turned revealed something else that I needed. The dishes and the glassware, were amazing, again, I can't tell you how disappointed I was that I had to fly home. I found this:
for measuring and had to have it, so I put it in the suitcase on the way home and prayed and as you can see, it did indeed make it home safe and sound. I am now kicking myself for not doing that with the vintage star light martini set that I saw!
