On Sunday the hubs and I decided to go to IKEA to find a dresser that I had previously scoped out online. I have been needing said dresser the entire time we have lived in WA - four months later: I buy one.
On that note...moving is a biatch and I had decided that I will no longer buy things I want for the rest of my life because if we move again (which we at least will into a house or hell across the country again who knows) I don't want to have to move a ton of STUFF. We have tooooo much STUFF and moving made me want to throw it all away. However, I still wanted something cute and that went with my furniture enter, IKEA
This all being said I've always wanted to go to IKEA (thanks Fight Club) but never did I expect how HUGE it was. I mean I knew it was going to be big...but seriously? A "Showroom" the size of Sams/Costco, A "Marketplace" the size of 2 Sams/Costco's, and a "Warehouse" the size of 1 Sams/Costco. That's like 3 football fields people. Not to even mention the parking garage just for IKEA shoppers....
After almost killing 2 mothers and a child we finally parked.
Then we walked half a mile to the entrance and to the showroom:
Children should never be allowed in public.
CK managed to find some toys hidden in a corner at one point:
I can't take him anywhere.
Then it was time to get down to business... finding our dresser that we had picked out in the Warehouse. Isle 46 mind you. Which is in the second warehouse .... past those blue signs at the very end back there:
46 isles later...
This is when CK realized he would be putting it together later.
All 7,000 pieces.
So, I had to bribe him with chocolate... Swiss Chocolate YUM!
After IKEA we decided to go to the movies thanks to GROUPON and fabulous 1/2 price tickets that you can only use after the movie has been in theaters 2 weeks. Hello, UNDERWORLD Awakening. Oh, how I love that series! It was Awesome...but when we got out we were caught in the middle of this:
Hail... what in the world WA?
Funny moment of the night: While waiting for CK to go get the car I watched a guy walk outside of the theater and look around then he looked to the sky with this disgusted look and gave the finger. It was all I could do to not burst out laughing. Hahaha.
After we got home CK disappeared for 2.5 hours and magically this appeared in my bedroom!
I didn't ask questions, I didn't watch, and I think it was quite possibly the best furniture put together experience that we have ever had. Although, it could have gotten done a little faster...
Then my babies crashed:
and I couldn't resist posting it.
Have you ever been to an IKEA store?
