Jacob working hard at assembling our dining set. I helped too.

Got our first dining set at ikea last weekend. before we were just using some odd table that jacob found at d.i. and two office chairs that he stole from the MTC. It was very charming. However, we decided if we ever wanted to have people over, we probably needed somewhere for them to sit. Luckily, a friend told me about Ikea's jokkmokk set--quite the steal.  we headed out to Ikea to check it out.

Just by our luck, ikea was having a special deal that weekend. If you spent over $100, you could eat in their cafe for FREE. And there was no "catch." No fine print with stipulations to easily miss. We could eat as much as we wanted, just as long as it did not exceed the price of our dining set.

ummm. . . hello, early Ikea thanksgiving???

We pigged out. And I mean, chicken tenders, fries, lingonberry juice, mountain dew, a half rack of ribs, mashed potatoes, cornbread, swedish meatballs with lingonberry sauce, and even a slice of chocolate mousse cake to top it all off.  Not gonna lie--we left feeling like sick gluttons, but it was kind of a happy feeling.

and seriously. they just deducted all that food from the price of the table. 

Ikea, why are you so good to me?!?

That's awesome! Post pics of your house. I want to see that rad couch you found! You guys are lucky to have IKEA. They were building it when we left.
