(we were parked farther out than this!)
Anyhoo. IKEA! We went, We saw, We conquered (all of $15 and change). We were there a total of 5 and 1/2 hours. Scary. I actually didn't think it was possible. Had my feet not been aching so badly and my littlest chickadees not been restless ( you would have thought they had more stamina than that:0) We may have camped out! Although, I don't think they sell tents. One of the few things they don't carry.

I really enjoyed looking at all the stuff, but I have to say it reminded me a bit of Madame Blueberry. That sweet blueberry who needs to have EVERYTHING from Stuff Mart and everything her neighbor has too. Can you tell that I can identify with her? (I'm a reformed blueberry from the mid 90's.)

Oh the cameras, can't a Starlet dream without paparazzi?
What we did buy:
2pack wooden utensils
2pack pot holders
2 stuffed animals
1 portable draftsman table for School Girl (what a find!!!)
We also bought some swedish treats and found out that Swedes (at least the IKEA kind) don't appreciate payment in quaters. In our defense it was only $4.
We will go again, but not stay nearly as long. Superman may even be able to stand it. He says they carry Krypton...
