While the kiddies were off last week, my 17 year-old niece asked if I would take her to IKEA since she and her younger sister just painted their rooms beautiful, fresh new colors.
Well, let's be honest here; their mom painted their rooms while they went out.
My younger niece was to accompany us but the two were fighting so I spent the day with the older niece at IKEA and the younger niece got to accompany me to Holy Thursday mass. Hmmm . . . I am not sure who got the better end of the deal here.
Some of the items I purchased at IKEA are this beautiful vase in my favorite color for $6.99.
Also, 3 dual-purpose tealight/taper candleholders @ 49cents each.
There is a Swedish Marketplace at IKEA where you can purchase hotdogs for 50cents and the most delicious frozen yogurt for $1 but we found, tucked behind the kid's section, a cafeteria-style restaurant. The food was delicious and so
We split a Greek salad and a HUGE buffalo chicken wrap. Each item was $3.99.
All in all, a great day. What do you think of IKEA and what have you recently found there?
Following is a quote from the garden section of IKEA that reminded my niece of her grandfather (my dad), the bestest gardener in the world.
