2nd trip to the big city

these two have been plotting a trip to IKEA and the Mall of America for some time .... today was the day.  Cyndi was our tour guide.  Neither Jean or I had ever been to IKEA .... needless to say, we'll be going back!   The purchase of the day ... LED lights for under the kitchen counters -- wicker wastebaskets that don't fit where I had hoped they would fit.
Then we headed to the MOA .... I thought it would have been busier and more crowded than it was .. well, the stores were less busy than the hallways. 

We always seem to end up at Bubba Gumps for a meal .... hummm.

We split up and went our own direction after lunch.  A bit of shopping for our trip to Utah and well, must go to Archivers when at the Mall.  Paper and more paper for scrap booking.  Although Cyndi and I got kicked out of the chairs at Archivers.... "need to keep them open for customers" ... evidently it appeared we weren't "customers."
Before the trek north, I finally managed to get the tension set on the long arm.  3 hours last night and a lot of YouTube video watching on "how to set tension and load your long arm" ... yep, YouTube has it all.  Anyhow, I re-threaded it this morning and away it went!
