Try Walking In My Shoes

lbpumps0002_500It’s no fun walking in someone else’s shoes but why do we want to sometimes?  I don’t normally wear pumps because they hurt my feet like crazy and they make me feel miserable if I have to wear them.  I prefer my very old and comfy pair of Dansko clogs or sandles to heels anytime.  Yet, I find myself drawn to the heels section at a shoe shop.

Here is a blog hop freebie in celebration of iNSD (International Scrapbooking Day) which is tomorrow, May 4th.  Create whatever you want with it.

Day At The Grand Opening of IKEA In Centennial

Today was IKEA’s grand opening in Colorado.  Wish I could say I was in a tent waiting in line for two days but I didn’t get that privilege.  Instead, I went this morning with husband and the kids.

As we approached IKEA, we could see that it was already pretty busy.

Roads were blocked and workers were telling us where to turn to park.

I thought it would be just an in and out experience but we ended up hitting the line so we stood there, with the rest of them as eager as we were, waiting our turn to get in.  The line moved quickly but we still spent a good amount of time waiting.

The TV stations were there to capture the craziness.  It was a strange and calm craziness though.  Maybe we were just all exhausted from the 91° heat beating on us.

It took almost 30 minutes before we were in.  There were so many people inside that it was way too crowded to do any serious shopping.  We wanted to try out the cafe but that line was pretty long too so we snacked on hotdogs and pizza by the checkout then made our way out.  We left with some cinnamon rolls and an empty IKEA bag.  I think we waited in line longer than we were inside the store.

There are plans to return in the future when all have settled.
