Saturday was a day that I waited months for, literally months.
Anna and I planned a trip to Ikea back in February! That meant three months of saving, waiting and building up a shopping list.
Finally the big day was here and I woke up with that goofy “pinch me” feeling. Part of me thought “Your such a nerd it’s just IKEA.” The rest of me was doing a happy dance singing “I’m going to IKEA!” over and over.
After all is IKEA ever “just” IKEA?!
We were ready to be on our way but first we took a quick picture before the 2 hour and 20 minute drive.
I assure you I was indeed happy despite the concerned look on my face. But I had just taken a big bite of my newest concoction, a homemade protein bar. Let’s just say that recipe needs a bit of tweaking before I would ever share it on the blog. They’re just so sticky and…. tasty?
We arrived scored an amazing parking place and decided the first stop should be lunch. We needed to fuel up before we attempted to shop. I decided since this was my first real shopping trip to IKEA I needed to do all the IKEA staples. Including Swedish meatballs for lunch.
Now the question that I have already been asked so many times….
“What did you get?”
I got two sets of Fargrik Dishes and some other Fargrik pieces to go with them.
I knew our home school room needed the infamous Raskog Cart.
A couple Bekvam Spice Racks will come in handy somewhere I am sure.
Some Lill Curtains are perfect for an upcoming project for Emily’s room.
A Borrby Lantern for decorating
And that is just a few of the goodies I brought home with me.
Of all the items I purchased I think I am the most excited about the Raskog Cart.
I can not wait to get started on re-purposing the old play room.
What is your favorite IKEA item or what item would be #1 on your list?
