Just A Little Roadtrip

On Friday the hubby & I took a little roadtrip. He took the day off work and I skipped class and after taking the dogs to get their nails trimmed, we hit the road! We’d been talking about going to Ikea for months and we finally decided to make it happen! We didn’t have any huge plans to buy anything. In hindsight-this was a mistake. If you’ve never been, Ikea is HUGE and we basically wandered around like lost puppies but it was fun! We picked up a few things but for the most part just went for the experience.

After Ikea, we headed down the road to Jungle Jim’s. It’s pretty much a foodie paradise :)

There was mind-blowing amounts of some stuff, like beer & wine, honey, Bob’s Red Mill, and nuts!

Hubby really wanted a keg of draft beer! They’re also known for their restrooms. They’ve disguised the hallway to the restroom as the entrance to a port-a-potty!

We loaded up, mostly on beer and wine, plus a few foodie treats, and headed home.

It was a good day!

What was the last road trip you took?

A workout for you: Do 1, 2 or all 3 for a total body workout. Go hard! it’s only 10 min!

  6. Aww, looks like so much fun! I LOVE Ikea but yeah it’s definitely easy to get lost in there (I tend to get overwhelmed very quickly!). The last road trip I took was coming back home from NJ for the holidays! We’re taking one next week though and I can’t wait! :)

  7. I love ikea!! I wish there was one by me but it really is an experience! The last road trip I took was probably back home? My parents live in MI so it was a 10 hour drive for me!

  8. I think my last road trip was when I moved to Dallas from Alabama. Yeah, that was an experience!

    A friend gave me the Broccoli stuffed animal from IKEA as a gift and I LOVE it. Too bad they don’t make a Green Bean!
