The IKEA Gods were shining down on me today! We had a freak power outage at work that happened right before noon. So we were told to take an extra long lunch break – the electric would be back on at 2 p.m.! I immediately thought – IKEA! I have been wanting to go during the day during the week, so this was perfect. I found a close parking spot, was able to walk around freely without bumping into busy crowds, and I was just in awe. I. LOVE. THAT. PLACE. I knew I would love it, but I didn’t realize I would love it so much. The entire store is exactly my style. I wanted everything! I was a good girl and only spent $16, but I got some awesome buys!
I got the most coolest watering can you’ve ever seen:
The cutest little candle holders and candles:
The wowest hanging dual-sided frame set (I haven’t put it together yet, but this is a pic of what it will look like. I’m going to put the girls’ artwork in it):
And of course, the IKEA reusable bag. The thing is HUGE.
I was so ecstatic. I was practically frothing at the mouth! I got a ton of great design ideas for the new house too. We’ll be able to outfit the entire house without spending a bunch of dough.
