my first ikea store experience . . . omg!!!
Last Wednesday, while up in the Denver area for our nephew's wedding, we stopped in to look around the IKEA store in Centennial. Oh my gosh, I was blown away . . . by the sheer size of the place, by the huge variety ("huge" is really an understatement) of things for sale and by the very good prices. They even have a daycare for your kids and a restaurant right there! I had no idea it would be like that! What we thought would be a 30 minute look-see turned out to be a three hour adventure that could have easily stretched to four or five hours. Thank goodness that we drove DH's pickup with it's flat, lockable metal bed cover as we almost filled it up completely! Are they all like that?
We ended up buying DD a new desk chair, a replacement desk chair for one at DH's clinic, a set of sheets for DD's new bed at college, picture frames, other decorative pieces and a drawer stack for her new place and a few more things for us.
I wish that we an IKEA here in New Mexico, although I know that I'd do some serious damage to my credit card, if I had one close by. Maybe someday. In the meantime, it's back to reality here at home(LOL)!
