We left with the following:
- Bookcase (Home office)
- Desk (Home office)
- Sofa table (Home office)
- Coffee table (Living room)
- Television stand (Living room)
And now we will be subsisting on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the next month to regain our lost money.
The drive to IKEA from Ocala took us a little over an hour and we figured it would be a smart idea to get some lunch before heading into the madhouse.
I selected the “make your own salad” option and got a delicious mix of veggies, fruit and edamame, topped with balsamic vinaigrette dressing.
My salad creation was good, but Ryan’s was better. Not sure how I missed the candied almonds topping option.
With full bellies it was time for some serious furniture shopping!
As always our time in IKEA was an adventure. That store is the best for providing inspirational ideas but I also find myself getting overwhelmed with all the options.
Ryan was in charge of writing down the names of the furniture we liked and the number aisle and spot they were located in downstairs in the warehouse.
Once we got to the warehouse to collect all the items we had on our list Ryan asked me to read off the aisle numbers for us to tackle.
Someone selected the Spanish chart and picked random columns to jot down the applicable numbers.
I took AP Spanish in high school and one year of Español in college, so I knew enough to know that pasillo was “aisle” and my husband would’ve had us running around like crazies looking for aisles that didn’t exist.
I don’t think he would’ve cared though because he was having a blast on the rolling cart.
I’m not gonna lie, we both freaked out when he managed to do a 360 on that cart in the slender aisle without touching the ground. Totally cool!
We just finished the most delicious dinner (we have leftovers so I’ll likely blog about it when I eat those) and now it’s time to head back into the living room to help Ryan with furniture assembly.
Don’t act like you’re not jealous of our happenin’ Saturday night.
P.S. The Fashion page was updated!
P.P.S I finished decorating the guest bathroom this evening, so stay tuned for pictures. I’m a little obsessed with the Anthropologie towels we bought today!
