During our short jaunt up to Chicago for the YHL book tour we decided to stop by this little store we have heard about a time or two.
Yea you heard right, we had never been to Ikea…but we fixed that right up.
Even though we had been up for way too many hours, and I had gone all giddy crazy meeting the Petersik’s we still made room for some Swedish lovin.
We gave ourselves a $100 budget and only an hour to shop.
Hey, we are broke and had to get home before the energy drink wore off.
Most people would think that was crazy, and it was.
Every single person we told that we were going to Ikea said that we absolutely must get the Swedish meatballs. And ice cream, definitely ice cream.
They were tasty indeed.
Do they cater for Christmas? To St. Louis?
I of course loved all the pretty, Tim was shocked and thrilled with the prices.
So in short, we had more fun than a toddler on a teeter-totter.
We did make our time limit and got back on the road by 4p.m. to make the long trek home. The budget on the other hand, we blew by a measley $18.
We bought simple white dishes and lots of white frames so we can get crackin on that living room frame wall. I can not wait to show you all.
I know we said we want to add more flava and color in our lives, but we figure those are staples and can be spiced up with lots of colorful napkins and art. Am I right?
Now where can I start a petition to get Ikea in the Lou?
