Before IKEA we went out to dinner, where you can see Amy told them it was my birthday. Fortunately for her I had my camera. Good times. Also interesting piece of info is that after the singing all of the staff but the manager dispersed and he proceeded to ask how old I was and about my high school reunions, and a whole bunch of other random stuff...he seemed to think we were tight because we were both 28...oh wait or was he hitting on me because I am super hot. I think we all know that answer to that.
After the restaurant, we figured we would see if IKEA was still open. It looked like it was, people were still going in, so we followed. We found out in about 10 minutes that it had actually already closed. Oops! We still lingered because there were other people. They didn't technically kick anyone out for another 30 minutes. So we had time to lay out a game plan for the next day.
The next day, and what a day it was! IKEA didn't open until 10 so we had time to be leisurely. When we pulled in, well all I can say is that it was magical. This store has only been open for a couple of weeks so it was a little crowded but who cares. We were both all giggles and excitement, seriously I thought we were both going to explode from happiness...I know what you are thinking, no one should be that happy to be at a store, but we were. I found my dream kitchen and of course we snapped a picture of me "washing my hands". I am pretty sure the couple there at the time thought we were nuts.
We had such a great time, and we both came away with some fun finds, and no one worry, although we wanted to go crazy, we only purchased practical things.
So thank you Spencer for the night away, thank you Tyler for letting Amy join me, thank you Amy for being a great friend and mutual admirer of IKEA, and thank you IKEA for being a place where dreams come true!
