So, I’ve been trying to find office furniture for my office. I’ve been throwing different ideas around and trying to pick out what style I want to go with. I finally found some stuff that I liked at IKEA. This one desk that I liked cost about $130 and I was excited that it was so inexpensive (compared to other things I like). I added it to my shopping cart and it was going to be over $400 to ship it!!! I just couldn’t believe it. I looked and the closest store was 470 miles away in the Twin Cities of Minnesota. That was not far enough to keep me away so when Elyse got home from work we jumped in the truck and went on our way.
On our way so far we’ve seen tons of big factories, the Kansas Speedway, and we went by Leavenworth. Tonight we are staying in Des Moines, Iowa (our first time ever!). Gas here is only $3.70 and Mid-Grade was $3.57…thats right, cheaper because they mix it with corn.
We also saw a Bridgestone Plant.
