IKEA Wonderland

I have been lead to the promise land...IKEA!! Thursday after dropping Grace off at Conductive Education, one of the other CE mom's announces in triumph "I'm going to IKEA!". At first I wasn't interested in driving all the way to Oklahoma (okay, it's really in Frisco but feels like Oklahoma), then a few other moms decided to go and from everyone's excitement I felt like I had to go just for the experience. I don't get out much.

When we first got there we had breakfast for $.99!! Yes that's right...eggs, bacon, potatoes, French toast and pancakes for 99 cents! I love eggs and bacon and I rarely have them. Who doesn't love bacon?! If you say you don't, then you are a liar or have an unhealthy attachment to Babe.

Next we shopped. I bought a cutting board, milk frother, timer (for time-outs), a can opener and 3 pairs of scissors for $11!! All that for $11!!

Thanks Jess, for introducing me to a new venue for retail therapy!!!

I've wanted to go since they opened (while I was on bedrest). Maybe one day I'll make the trek we are in Bedford!

I can't believe it took you so long to get to Ikea. I went again just last Monday. I got some boxes to organize toys in the kids rooms and a canopy to go over Aubrey's bed. We are going to get her big girl bed there in a few weeks. I found a white rod iron day bed with the mattress and wood slat supports for only $220. I can't wait for her to get it...she keeps falling out of her crib with the front of it open.
