This morning we loaded up the van and trekked over to Ikea. It’s a bit of a trip from our place – about an hour and a half – but a really fun day of shopping. For those of you that don’t have an Ikea nearby, it’s an inexpensive, huge Scandinavian furniture, kitchen, decor and accessories warehouse store.
We got a couple of practical items – a new highboy dresser for Zach and a couple of DVD storage thingies for our living room.
We also found a lot of really fun things. There were little wall hooks that look like dog butts – perfect for car keys in our kitchen. And there was a great flat dog throw pillow that made us smile every time we walked past it, so I grabbed it because you should always have things around you that make you smile!
And the food, one of the best parts of the trip — Swedish meatballs for lunch! Yum! All three of us had a huge lunch with dessert for $20. And, did you know that, in addition to Swedish gummy candy fish, you can also buy Swedish gummy rats? Zach, of course, bought some, and ate them tail first. Blech.
