After a cinnamon roll and Mr. Pibb break we tackled the kitchen section and the rest of the store!
Some of the things we purchased included two different types of hooks. One type was neat because when not in use they snapped up against the wall (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/60152590). These other ones are simple but I thought they would be perfect to mount on the inside of my closet to hang necklaces on (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/30061247)! The sadness was that somehow these ones didn't make it home with us! We paid for them but couldn’t find them when we got home, guess we left them in the cart (sad face)!
Amongst the many other lovely things, we didn’t buy, like bins of soft lamb’s skin, beautiful curtains, and tons of colorful pillows we found the drying rack and magnetic knife holder that I was hoping to find and tossed them into our cart! We also happened to find the perfect shade for the lonely kitchen nook that now only needs some leather chairs and a table!
After spending about 7 hours looking around we were tired and hungry! With a Christmas gift card in hand we headed over Olive Garden to enjoy a nice meal before we started our 2 hour drive home! We decided we didn’t want to take the tollway home so our trip home ended up taking about 3 hours since it was mostly obscure roads. Probably not the best idea we ever had but we made it home safely before midnight!
