I was in the car a lot yesterday. Traffic snacks –

After our respective auditions, Christy picked me up for a trip to Burbank!  (In case you were wondering what the title of this post stood for.)

Love the catalog, but the stuff never looks as good in person

More fun to browse here than buy, I feel

Definitely not worth standing in this line for some napkins!

We did pick up some Swedish groceries though…

…wound up with some very boring crackers, but there was definitely some interesting stuff to see!

I remember these chocolate/coconut-covered marshmallows from my trip to Paradis – they’re GREAT smashed on top of ice cream

Haven’t eaten in their cafeteria since I was a wee one…I convinced Christy to go for dinner

For $4.99 you get a plate of balls…

…cream sauce and lingonberry jam + mashed potato…

…a make-your-own salad…

…with horrific dressing options (we decided on fat free italian)…

…garlic bread + a Diet Pepsi

Christy and I split the balls + bread – the taters and soda were all mine

We also shared the veg

Sadly, the meatballs did NOT live up to my fond memories of them. They were quite rubbery, like a really bad soy version

I think I may have finally outgrown this store?

Not that I would say no to this kitchen!!!

How much stuff in your house is currently from IKEA? There’s about eleven in mine, and that’s not counting all the non-furniture items like utensils, glasses, lighting, sheets, plants, frames, etc.

    is it just me or is Ikea getting bigger and better with each passing day!?! i mean, even their food looks better… i remember a few years back looking at their cafe food and thinking..hmmm, not quite sure how appetizing that would be…but this- major improvement!

    Um, thank you for telling me what IKEA stands for! And I feel the same way…. I get the catalog, get excited to go get something and then it just doesn’t excite me when I see it in person….

    I think your palate has outgrown IKEA. Hmmm…I have about 7-8 items, bookshelves, etc. I’ve learned to go in with a plan otherwise you can walk yourself numb and I don’t eat there unless I’m desperately hungry.

    Maybe the Swedish fish would’ve been a better option!! Ok joking aside their floating shelves are pretty cool and I admit I have a table top for my computer desk! It’s very shiny and only cost $18!
