My trip to IKEA over the weekend was a ton of fun. There were six of us altogether (we missed you Katie!), so I feel like it was a good turn out. I didn't end up getting a group picture like I would have wanted to, so you will have to picture me with some of my friends.
This place is amazing. If you have not been and you have one within driving distance you must go. This was technically my second visit to IKEA...my first being when I was a sophomore in college and went to visit my family in CA. But, that did not prepare me for this trip...it was truly overwhelming...a good overwhelming, but overwhelming nonetheless.
We stayed together at some points and went our separate ways at some points. There was so much to look at and so many great deals. I did not end up buying a ton of items like I thought I would because I spent a lot of time just taking it all in :)
Here's a glimpse at my goodies:
I ended up with some cups for the kids, a travel bad for Ron, a microwave plate cover (you know, so the food does not splatter), some food containers, and...
I was excited to see these beauties. I have seen them all over blog land and they were top on my list.
Don't you think they fit right in at my house? I will use one for a plant for my kitchen, but I am not sure what I will do with the other two yet.
I also got this cutie...just cuz:
Lastly, I picked up these cute jars (for only $1.99 for all 4!). Now I have a cute place to put the accessories for my cards. I will eventually find a home for them on my craft shelf (which I really need to clean up).
Overall the trip was great...good times with friends, cheap household goods and a cinnamon roll for $1 :)
And there are already talks of returning...
