Where are my fireworks?

It’s just a teeny, tiny, maybe 4 inch long snippet of information.

I would have missed it if I wasn’t dividing this morning’s paper into “read” and “recycle.”

My heart stopped. My jaw dropped. I got lightheaded a bit.

I saw visions of afternoons wandering about. Visions of organization that actually turned me on.

I no longer have to be jealous of Karen or Cursing Mama or Holly.


Details to come today…

    Hey—aren’t you jealous of me, too??? I *heart* Ikea……and we have it here!!!! 😛

    All joking aside……

    Congrats! You’ll love it !

  2. denise @ eatplaylove

    now the real waiting begins… how flipping exciting for us..

  3. cursingmama

    Nothing like a $1.99 breakfast on Saturday morning!

  4. ChiTown Girl

    That IS exciting! I have two that are relatively nearby, and when the second one opened (which is closer) my sister and did a little happy dance!

  5. Cathy

    OMG!! I didn’t hear about that. I haven’t been to IKEA since I lived in Chicago, and kind of gave up on going to one again.

  6. Robin

    My condolences. Sorry, but I can’t stand Ikea. (Although, there was an article in yesterday’s paper about how Israel’s Ikea is about 20% more expensive than in other countries. I might be more willing to put up with their crap if I didn’t feel I was getting ripped off paying nearly regular retail prices for substandard quality. I still hate the habitrail thing though. With a passion.)

    Near us?

    Um…. yay for you I guess. Never been in one. Got no desire to go in one. Seems say too trendy for my taste. I tend to decorate in late 20th Century yard sale, complimented by rustic last-item-up-for-bid auction specials. That way I don’t freak when the cat sharpens on any of it. Goody for you though.

    Ikea: the only reason to kick yourself in the behind for buying a Prius. 😉

  10. texasholly @ June Cleaver Nirvana

    Yeah! This is good news. Now you too can have super frustrating shopping trips to find super fun furniture that requires hours of assembly when you get home (if you can fit the box in your car)…

    But it is really cool. And totally worth it.

    IKEA, I love IKEA. Mmmm, swedish meatballs, swedish pancakes, lingonberries. Oh, yeah, the material goods are nice too, LOL. I love their kitchen stuff. I always come home with something new.

    How long will you have to wait?

  12. Angie @ Keep Believing

    I have to agree with Robin. We had IKEA in Edmonton. I do not find it all it is cracked up to be. The furniture is made of very soft wood and the baskets easily fall apart. Honestly, it is just not very good stuff and takes a zillion years to put together. Although I do have one half circle end table from there that I totally heart.


  13. Mama Zen

    And, now, I’m jealous of you!

  14. Heather

    I guess I’ll be moving to Colorado.

  15. momunplugged

    CONGRATULATIONS!!! If I had one closer than 4 hours away I’d be living there.
