I-kea you not!


Mommy got out!

Now, I don’t want to give the wrong impression. I do get out and my husband does encourage me to do so. It just so happens that it’s typically in the same area within 5 miles of our house. This time it was in another STATE! AND, I got to go twice in two different cities!

I’m sure most of you manage to venture out more than I do and will find my outing a bit lame. Hang with me though and share in the excitement!

I got to explore IKEA for the first time ever! Oh my word, I had no idea how large of a store it is nor how incredible the prices are! 3 levels of pure creativity along with a little restaurant and play area for the kids. We quickly made the loop around each floor, careful not to miss anything. Let’s just say this Momma’s socks were knocked off!!! I felt like a kid in a candy store.

Sometimes, it’s just the little things. Trying out something new, going somewhere different, getting outside of the same 4 walls, and the same trip of errands. Surprisingly, I didn’t spend much money….it wasn’t even about that. It was about discovering something new and different; a place we’d never been, yet heard much about. I just wanted to explore, and explore I did!
