We really love Ikea, and went again today to get towel racks for the bathroom, handles for the cabinets, and another set of drinking glasses.  Emily came with us, and I think she may have gotten more than she bargained for -- we were there for 3 hours!  Of course, we first had lunch in the cafe, then walked the maze.  Then over the intercom we heard them paging "Shane and Nancy" to the Smaland, and Emily rightfully said, how many Shane and Nancys can there be?  (the last name matched, too).  We were close to Smaland, so I peeked in an saw their 7 year-old daughter, who I recognized from Facebook.

They live in Ft Worth and we rarely see them, but we all were at college together.  Anthony and Shane were roommates for a while, and he was in our wedding.  Before that, Emily dated Shane when she was finishing high school.

Their daughter was shy until she saw my kids, then they were immediately playing chase and whispering secrets.  Extra bonus at Ikea to see friends we haven't seen face-to-face for at least 5 years!

Excellent socially-acceptable stalking!
