Shopping at IKEA
Shopping at IKEA is always an adventure, lots and lots of good things that I need or must have. We were on a mission.
We needed new shelves for the den and my eldest needs a wardrobe for his new room. We found a wardrobe that he liked and continued on the search for the shelves. We found the shelves in the self serve area along as some lavender tea lights, ocean scented tea lights, a wooden kitchen utensil set (less than a dollar), and some dishtowels for .49 each.
Finally we went to pick up the wardrobe and it weighed 160 pounds and was too tall to fit in my van. So we paid for our shelves and other goodies and I got my son lunch from the Swedish cafeteria.
He had the meatballs and mashed potatoes plate and I had a great shrimp Louie salad. We also picked up some frozen meatballs, sauce mix and that great lingonberry sauce for dinner another day.
While we were eating these 3 retired ladies sat next to us with a HUGE tray of fresh cinnamon rolls that were giant, at least 6 inches across and 3 inches tall. They offered one to us and my son took one and said it was great.
We had some good conversation with the ladies and then went on our merry business.
