No, I'm not playing promiscuous party games. My 15 minutes in heaven was here:
Ikea Atlanta!!! Oh, Ikea, how do I love you? Let me count the ways... cool kid's furniture. Amazing lamps and lighting. Elaborate Swedish names for everything. Cheap, funky, modern and minimal furniture. And meatballs.
Why just 15 minutes? After walking what felt like 90 miles in the Georgia Aquarium (more in another post), I learned that there was an Ikea in ATL, mere minutes from our hotel. I begged and pleaded- my dad was in charge of the rental van and he hates Ikea. Finally, my whimpering won out, but we were allotted enough time to eat- everyone had meatballs except Train Boy- and then, 15 minutes to roam the store. Anyone who has ever been to an Ikea knows- 15 minutes is a cruel joke. Still, 15 minutes is better than nothing, which is what I have had in the last 3.5 years... We bought some picture frames, a lamp for the bedroom, and a dragon toy holder for Train Boy's wall- all things that should fit in our suitcases (I have learned to always leave room in my suitcases as I tend to accumulate a lot on vacations...)
Oh, Ikea, please please come to Denver. Please?
Meanwhile, I'm still in SC with the family, having a grand old time. Anyone know of any quilt shops or yarn stores in the Hilton Head or Savannah general vicinities?
