What's Your Ikea Name?

I love Ikea, do you?? I love it because my ancestors hail from Sweden. I love it because they have great design and great prices. But mostly, I love Ikea because it has a restaurant in every store that sells Swedish Meatballs. It enhances my shopping experience when I know I have Swedish Meatballs waiting for me. Eden loves Ikea too. We go on Ikea dates a few times each year. In fact, we are going on one during Spring break because I need a cool cord organizer under my desk. My friend Dandee mentioned it on her blog a few weeks back and I was thrilled because I had just been thinking about how much I needed to organize all the cords snaking around my feet as I work on my computer. Now I have an excuse to eat Swedish Meatballs.

Today, I was reading the blog of another cyber friend -- Jenni. She had a link to this site:

What's Your Ikea Furniture Name?

Do you know yours?? If you haven't tried it out, you should. It's fun .... like playing What's Your Movie Star Name? (If you haven't played that, you are really out of it .... you use the name of your first pet and the street where you were born. My movie star name is Duchess Melbourne. Just thought you might like to know.)

Here is my official Ikea furniture name...... (drum roll please)......

I am Kristal the sturdy dresser.

How boring is that. My name didn't change a bit. I guess the generator already knows I'm Swedish.

To find out your Ikea name, click here. If you get something good, come back and leave me a comment. If it's boring... you can leave your Movie Star name instead.
P.S. If you want a great recipe for Swedish Meatballs, click here. If you have Swedish in your blood, you must learn to make these. You must.

I found that post on another blog and couldn't resist posting either! HA!

PS - My pictures...I shoot in auto! That was I can catch those moments that I really want to! I would never catch them if I was spending time with all the other buttons! I love my D90, it takes beautiful pictures, but it is all about how you edit them! So I just take 100's of them and pick out the ones that I love best to edit!
I think it is ok to be stuck in auto!

I just found your blog and am commenting- hope you don't mind. My Ikea name is: NÅTÅSVA the chair. People sit on me, it's true.

"SLINTSJÅII" here. Haha! I am a bed. Woohoo.

Maya changed to Maja (well, it's a Scandinavian name, afterall), and Finn and Wes stayed the same. :)

Apparently Lyndsay doesn't exist in Sweden (which I knew would happen, because my Danish friends call me Linda).

I HEART IKEA. And their meatballs. My house looks mostly like an Ikea showroom.
