Ikea, The Pioneer Woman & a Giveaway

Last Friday was f-u-n, fun.

We rode up and down escalators…

…and ate Swedish meatballs and mashed pa-taters…

We tripped out on trays…

…and smiled at striped duvets…

We sipped tea on aisle four…

…and found lots of little goodies, all over the store…

We got hid our hands in our bags, and sang with invisible mics…

We ran into unbelievable prices that made me say “yikes!”

When we were done at Ikea, we headed over to Borders. We sat on the floor, and counted our quarters. (Not really….it just rhymed.)

We met lots of cool folks hanging out in the store…

…and I’ll never forget seeing this guy and his family stroll in through the door…

We had a blast chatting it up with the incomparable Miss Ree

…and I had her sign an extra copy of her book, with love from TLC…

    Seriously? Layla, Ree AND IKEA all in one day? I’m not sure if I can think up a better pair of women in a better store. The first IKEA in Colorado irs under construction near my home and I always make my kids have a “moment of silence” as we drive by the building. I really want Ree’s book–such a great writer!

    It would make my day to win Ree’s book! I follow her blog everyday and thru her blog I found YOUR blog! Love them both!

    I’ve been hooked on her website for a couple of years and LOVE it! Have made her Twice baked potatoes and those litte Apple Dumplings (they are to die for), etc. Would love to get a copy of her book!!!!!

    You know I found your site through Ree, right? Well, I couldn’t be happier that I did, and this would be the icing on the cake!

    You’ve given me the itch to go IKEA. Love that place! Just discovered Pioneer woman about a month ago and can’t get enough. Would love a book!
