I'm pretty sure I mentioned this at some point before, but we are getting a new IKEA in my area. Woo-hoo! Currently, the closest one to me is an hour away in Orlando, but this new IKEA takes me about 15 minutes to drive to.

I have lunch with my father once a month, and his office is just down the street from the new IKEA, so I have been watching the progress on it from the very beginning. Today, I decided to drive all the way around the construction site to check it out (and take photos) from all four sides.

They've made a lot of progress so far, but they still have a way to go before it's completed. This new store is scheduled to open this coming summer, and I can't wait!

IKEA rocks.

And thank you for loving my gross Michael Jackson nose photo! I think I've spooked away a couple of readers with it, but oh, well. I guess gross photos cull the herd - only the tough will survive my blog! * snort *

Have a Swedish, ready-to-assemble day and talk soon...

Well, you've still got a few months to save up for his big shopping spree, Karlise.

I can't wait. We finally made it over to the one in Orlando a few weeks ago,and I wanted to weep with joy that we were getting our very own. I LOVE IKEA!

I LOVE Ikea! We have two in our area and I love going to both. Heck, the kids love going to Ikea--it's a great place to lose a day in. :)
