We had a return to do (mistake #1), we pulled number "02" and they were on 70... 45 minutes later we were in, and starving! Surprise, guess what? It was a special eat-for-free day, and the lines were cra-aa-azy. We'd already come that far, so we hopped in with the rest of 'em and loaded up on the (FREE!) meatballs, chicken tenders, and whatever else Sweden could throw at us. Then it was on to pick out a couch!
Actually, the couch was already a 100% yes, so no in-store decisions necessary. I gotta say, the rest was pretty easy and straightforward. An IKEA worker was actually available, friendly and wrote our order up. We paid, and then went to furniture pick up where - oh that's right - what DOES a couches box look like? It looks like a pallet of 5 enormous boxes that they slap on a tiny baby cart and say "Have a nice day". I am kicking myself for not taking a picture, it was hilarious. Maybe it was the shock, but really, what was I expecting? Some flat packed miracle I could toss in the back seat? Yes, of course. It was both funny and frightening in reality, and we got it into the truck with surprisingly few snags. A nervous ride home, and it was time to BUILD ourselves a couch..

Hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving and weekend with the family & friends, here's to a new week!
