WW, Confession and a shelf.

So, yesterday was my birthday. And I 'claimed' that I would not eat cake. I need to confess. Though I told my husband not to buy me a birthday cake, I did allow him to buy me a slice of cake. This came from the bakery down the road, it's ONE slice of black forest cake. And though it was still cake, it wasn't a WHOLE cake, which would equate to me eating a piece of it every single day until it was gone. This one is already gone, and was enjoyed very much!

And I may or may not have posted this picture here before, but I know I've talked about IKEA stores and their stuff. Well, about 31 days ago, we received some items that I ordered from them. And as I was putting together the shelf, I noticed that the very last piece was broken. I called them up, and thankfully they have an excellent customer service department. They immediately sent out the broken piece. It did take a while, as we are in another country, and the address I had it sent to was kind of a "back door" way for us to get things here.

Here is the finished product. I received the piece and was able to finish it up in about 5 minutes from the point where it was in the above picture. The kids absolutely LOVE it! And so do I! Way to go IKEA for having such good service and awesome products!

Don't you just love IKEA. My daughter (28) and I will just go there for the day and see what's new. (So you ate cake)

The cake looks yummy! I love IKEA but never get to go as there are none close by! But when we are traveling, sometimes we will change our route if there is one nearby. Happy WW!

Happy belated birthday. That's a good idea, just to get one piece of cake. Love the storage organizers, I need some of those.

Thanks for sharing. Happy WW!

Glad dh got you a piece of birthday cake--looks good. Also glad that IKEA got you the piece that was broken, good for them.
Wise company to keep their customers happy. Need a trip to IKEA myself, maybe when you get here next month we can go.
Kids look happy to have their toy shelf put together, by the smiles on their faces.
