Sorry about the phone, and make that a 3 to the number shocked about the Lingonberries. Is this a USA thing I wonder, will have to check it out.

I love this post! Tilly looks like such an angel in the picture, it's hard to believe she had any meltdowns. And YOU look fabulous! I have actually never been to an IKEA before, but I might have to go after reading this post =)
