Road trip to Ikea...

October 19, 2010

While my mom was here we had to make our usual journey to one of my favorite places...Ikea. What usually is a two hour drive somehow took us four hours....probably because we spent too much time chatting and not enough time navigating. We were almost to Indiana before I realized we had gone about an hour our of our way. Oh well...we had fun, right mom?

Me with our two carts. We picked up a new bed frame and bedding for my guest room (reveal coming soon!) and some canisters for my kitchen. Somehow we were there for over two hours....I heart Ikea.

What? The hot dog is "*not actual size"? We were totally planning on buying a ten foot long hot dog for 50 cents. Bummer.

After Ikea we made a stop at another favorite, Trader Joe's, to stock up on some yummy food. I didn't take any pictures but I did manage to get a few of us in some awesome Halloween hats at Cracker Barrel.
Mom with a spider headband. She said she would have bought it to wear to work on Halloween...except she isn't working that day. I would have paid to see that.

Me with a witches hat complete with a black veil. Awesome.
