I've been waiting for months to do this task. At first i wanted to bring him
but he's a flake. My boyfriend also wasn't up for it (being that he, though awesome, is a coward.) So I found a fantastic new recruit, to give me the night of my life at the fine establishment of IKEA.
First we got ourselves all dressed up
He in his hat, suit and tie
i in red hat and dress (such a gentleman to give me flowers)
Anyway, dressed to the nines, we put our plates and silverware into a victoria's secret bag (which he was chivalrous enough to carry) and went our way
We stopped by a gas station to get money (and a yummy energy drink to which Watches is addicted) so we could buy food from a the fantastic Nicholas restaurant on the east side.

Then came the IKEA bit. After wandering over to the max stop, we were able to locate IKEA and begin our invasion! Pixie was pretty sure IKEA sells candles, and turned out to be right. So we bought some orange ones, because come on. They're orange. 'Nuff said.
Then came the arduous task of finding the perfect spot for dinner. IKEA is a gargantuan labyrinthine Swedish monolith of a store, so picking just the right spot involved some decidedly nontrivial navigation through the sneaky hidden shortcuts they put all over the place and into the kitchen/dining area. Eventually, we settled on a nice little black round table behind the cashier.
Pixie re-hijacks text: The dinner it'self was marvelous. Though many passer-by's noticed us, they didn't take much notice of us (after all, we live in portland.) I ran into a few people i knew from middle school, but for the most part, people just didn't care. The food was great, the conversation was great, the environment was great. IKEA is quieter then most dining establishments and has a wonderful ambiance.
After eating as much as we could, we put the dirty plates back in the victoria's secret bag and searched for about a half an hour for the exit
We found a nice man in the parking lot to take our picture outside IKEA
and we all lived happily ever after.
