Trip to Ikea

Sunday, August 28th. 

I remember my first visit to Ikea with my grandmother in New York. We took a ferry to Staten Island and I saw what now is, one of my favorite stores ever. Maybe it's the OCD side of me that enjoys building my own furniture. 

So, today we went to Ikea in Charlotte, to pick up all of our cabinets. What an adventure! We must have loaded more than 500 boxes. 

Huge pallets!

They just kept coming!

We had the help of a sweet employee who was my size and had the strength of 3 men. 

This is Lauren. The angel who helped us.

 Pallets and pallets kept coming. And one by one we loaded them up into the truck. This is probably my favorite thing we've done for the salon so far; even though it was so taxing on our bodies. After arriving home around 10:30pm, Sam and I unloaded the entire truck by ourselves into our garage, which is now our warehouse. I joke saying our neighbors must think we're hoarders with boxes piled to the ceiling!
