263: A very IKEA Christmas to all….
This past Sunday, we skipped church to brave what we thought would be massive throngs of peeps at IKEA, but I was surprised at how “normal” it felt there. Busy, but normal busy. Not as “Christmasy” as Linda thought it would be, but we love IKEA anyway…and now Seattle IKEA carries fabric, so it really is fun to shop there!! I actually only picked up two pieces shown here behind some Glogg we are going to try for Christmas Eve. And some Nygarda root beer that I picked up for the kids.
This Grey and white fabric was on display in red and white which I totally loved….but they were out of it!! I was so bummed, but I bought the grey any way as I have been having a thing for grey lately anyway….I also bought this, but didn’t get a very good picture of it…..you can see a sliver of it next to the Nygarda…..
and in our study room we had need for new chairs for the kids….so I bought a 3 pack of Snille…( I just love IKEA names don’t you??)
Pictured here is Mimi’s. Max picked Black, and Noel picked Red.
When I got it put together (SUPER EASY!) Mimi said, “Oh! all pink and shiney!” That’s my girl! Office Bling all the way…
It’s Nine days to Christmas (I think; I lose track of time this time of year) now….are you ready?
