A very Exciting Day....

I have been waiting for three years for them to get on and build this baby, oh yes, I am talking about Ikea in Denver. It finally opened last week and yesterday I felt compelled to face the crowds and pop in. I say pop in because they happened to build it 5 minutes away from my house!! I can very, nearly, see it - Loving that - I can now erase all memories of spending hours on the Purley Way in Croyden, (near London), trying to get to my local Ikea. Just a hop, skip and a jump to a plate full of Sweedish meatballs.

It was wonderful. Eldest Oompa Loompa was quite bemused by my excitement. Bless, just give him another 15 years and then he'll see the magic!! So, welcome Ikea, we are very happy to have you.


  1. I {heart} IKEA. My oldest loves it, but she is on her own, so sees how great their products are. My middle is not at all impressed. My 4 yr old, he likes to go play in the toy area. I am about 45 min. away from the on across the parking lot from the Mall of America.

  2. Been there too Tara! Fun times :-) I also wanted to let you know that some of us are getting together at Archivers in Highlands Ranch on August 20th. Would LOVE it if you could join us. It would be fun to get to chat with you more.

  3. Ikea is so cool. I've only been once and would love to get back - its about an hour away, but I never make the time. Glad you had fun.
