I dragged boy with me to Ikea the other day for the first time.
He wasn't really that wowed until we got to the check out line and bought a 6 pack of cinnamon rolls for $4.
That was a deal he was impressed with.
Our nearest Ikea isn't super close and to top it off you have to
get on the tollway. Which about a month after your trip to Ikea, to buy
a $2 colander, doesn't seem like such a good idea when the toll bill
shows up in your mailbox for $6.
So, I don't head that way very often. We just happened to be in
the area of Ikea the other night and with only an hour and a half before
it closed I convinced boy to make a quick stop.
It's very difficult to make a quick trip because the 320 sq ft.
of super organized- all five rooms into one always lures me in and
before I know it I'm saying things like "we could totally live in this"
and "the pugs totally wouldn't mind sleeping on a lacquered shelf of our
I love Ikea.
I've kind of had a mental list going, all of items I can't
pronounce by the way, that I wanted to pick up. I'd really like to do a
light tan slipcover on our ektorp chaise sofa in the gameroom and I
love their towels and sheets. But of course with my luck, I must have
just missed a huge sale because they were out of everything. I wanted
to curl up on one of those ridiculous cute toddler sized beds and cry.
Dear Ikea, can you pretty please start selling everything online?
course I can't complete an Ikea trip with out buying the pugs a $.99
stuffed animal and boy spoke volumes of the cinnamon rolls so it was a
stop well worth it.
