IKEA... It's Good for What Ails You

With gift cards in hand, the roomie and I made the long trek to IKEA yesterday. We almost never made it. I don't know if this happens to anyone else, but there are some days when being on the road can be severely dangerous to one's health/life/sanity. I can't even count how many encounters of the close kind we had while driving. I am convinced that the only people who chose to leave the safety and comfort of their homes yesterday (the two of us excluded of course, because, while I do not always show the most amount of sense and can be quite non-sensical at times... Molly is ALWAYS on the ball) were the ones with the least amount of sense and regard for their own lives.

At any rate, we made it and the shopping began. I won't go into all the details about our time in IKEA, except to say that eating at IKEA rocks. Is there any other place on the planet where you can get a spaghetti and meatballs meal with garlic bread and non-stop pop for 4$s? I don't think so...

So what was on the shopping list? Bedding, bedding and more bedding. New pillows, sheets, pillowcases, duvet covers. It was super fabulous. My new pillow is divine and there is nothing sweeter than brand new sheets.

New Pillows, sheets, pillowcases, duvet cover = $150
Getting a good night's sleep in one's new pillows, sheets, pillowcases, duvet cover = priceless

Did I have a good night's sleep... finally... (we bout of insomnia at the mo')... um, not really... but at least I was cozy and comfy while tossing and turning. I feel good about tonight... fingers crossed!

IKEA is my own personal Mecca. I pour over the internet site and mark the pages in my catalogue thinking, "Someday I too will have IKEA items in my home. Maybe my whole home will be IKEA."

I've never actually gone to the store. I am too afraid I will never leave. And now with the food option, it would even be more likely.

Here's to dreams and more importantly, sleep :)

should you REALLY be buying your food at the same place you buy your bedding?? think about it...

I *love* IKEA. We have the 2nd largest IKEA in the world here in BC, but you're from here, you probably know that. :)

And I love new bedding. I try and get new bedding at least once a year. I love changing it and feeling the crisp newness of it.
