LongLazySunday: Ikea

As we are in the process of fixing up our new apartment, Mr. Pancakes and I went to Ikea. And I have to tell you there are many families that spend their lazysundays enjoying Ikea.

This is our first time as a couple going to Ikea. I was teasing Mr. Pancakes that now we are a full fledged couple since we went to Ikea together! Don't get me wrong we've gone to other furniture store but Ikea is such an experience in itself!

Just working together to choose furniture can bring up issues in communication and relating with one another. I believe if you and your partner can walk through that Ikea maze among all those items and distractions and make it to the marketplace in one piece without killing each other but actually making a purchase, you have come a long way as a couple in the relating/communicating department.

Mr. Pancakes and i were able to make it through the maze (we had to take  a few short cuts because Ikea truly overwhelmes me!) and make a few purchases!

Therefore, my question for this longlazysunday is would you agree that walking through Ikea helps with communication and relating with your partner?

Hope you've enjoyed your sunday thus far!

Happy Sunday! Ikea's always fun to walk around. Todd and I have been a few times and bought an awesome computer desk and chair there.

First of all, I love ikea! That place is awesome and has EVERYTHING! Second, shopping for home goods definitely can either strengthen or weaken a relationship! lol

I would agree that walking through Ikea on a busy Sunday would be enough to drive me crazy. :) We usually try to go at like 9 in the evening when it's relatively empty. I admire you courage.:)

We almost got divorced 300 times in Babies R Us when we tried to register. THAT place makes Ikea look like a walk in the park.

I love a Long Lazy Sunday!!! I've never been to an Ikea, we just got our first one maybe two years ago. Down here in the "furniture capital" they "fronted" on Ikea, but that place stays jam packed!!!

@Stephanie: it doesn't end. I shudder to think about making decisions at Babies R Us! Oh vey! Thanks for the heads up!

Haha, I definitely agree! My husband and I love to go walk through Ikea but especially on busy days there can be so many life lessons to learn! You not only have to pick out furniture together but you have to navigate the crowds...not so easy!
