This is purely an indulgent post but I am still thankful for it! Ikea! I am thankful we have a new Ikea store here in the Denver area. I remember going to one with Andrea and a friend in the DC area and wishing we had one. Now we do. Wally and I went for the first time a week ago to find shelving for our new apartment. There is so much stuff there! I also picked out some storage pieces for my scrapbooking stuff. We made our choice and went back this week to pick it up.
In case you don’t know, Ikea is a huge showroom and then you go to the basement to pick up your furniture. It all comes in these rather flat and heavy brown boxes! But they have these great carts to load the boxes onto. The carts are wonderful scooters and the aisles are nice and wide! Just don’t let your husband catch you flying down the aisle on one…he goes faster…and is very wreckless!
Here’s something else you should not let your husband do in Ikea…lay his keys down and not realize it until you are checking out! There’s nothing like walking through that huge warehouse after closing searching for the place that the keys may have been set down. (Sure wish they would have let us use those carts!) And where did we find them? At the end, of course, where we started loading up the boxes!
Well, I still love the store and am thankful we have one nearby!
