Here are some pictures from our day!
This was my lunch! IKEA's famous Swedish meatballs, mashed 'taters with gravy and lingonberry sauce. The mashed potatoes are okay but I really, really miss the little red potatoes they used to have.
This was my birthday cake! Chocolate Overload. OMG. Ami snuck a candle and lighter into the store so I could make a wish!
Ami was so sweet and she made me this adorable ribbon that I wore all day!
I had twelve people working and shopping in the store tell me "happy birthday" and one sweet lady grabbed me and hugged me! AND said I didn't look 46. I just loved her so much. :)
Here I am peeking in a freezer in one of the display kitchens, looking for some birthday ice cream.
They didn't have no birthday ice cream. :(
Here's Ami taking a picture of me looking for some birthday ice cream. We LOVE this beautiful warm sunny window and take pictures every time we're there right in front of it.
I absolutely fell in love with this display bed! I wanted some new bedding for Larry's homecoming so guess what? Yep. This bed now lives at the Schneider Condostead. :) Minus those white roll pillows. I wasn't real crazy about them. And since our bed is a queen and they only had ONE flower print pillow anyway, I got just the one. New sheets, new pillows, new duvet and pillow shams, new throw pillow (that I'm sure Larry's just gonna throw) and a pretty navy cotton blanket for the foot. Squeeeee!!
I loved these funky orange lights!
Ami and Brian, dressed in IKEA colors and carrying their cameras. :)
Aprons are some of my very favorite things!
I loved these handleless coffee cups!
My buggy handle. :)
This was so funny to me!! A teapot named Omelett. :D
So long, IKEA! You gave the perfect birthday party!
