IKEA extravaganza

So as mentioned in the previous blog post, Trevor and I were first timers at IKEA last weekend. Our first time in the store was on Saturday and it definitely took us a few hours to walk through and look at everything. We were really hesitant to pick anything up because we didn't want to have to carry it around, not knowing how much of the store we had we just kept walking. By the end of it all, we had picked up a rug and a couple things for my classroom. Don't get me wrong, there were a million and one things that I wanted to get, but we kept talking ourselves out of it saying that we won't be in our house for a few months, we shouldn't buy anything yet, where are we going to store it, what if it doesn't fit where we want it to go...blah blah blah.
But here is the rug we got...we got the green one.
We were pretty well exhausted when we got out of the store, but we decided to visit a few more stores in the area. So we went to lunch to rejuvenate and then started shopping again. After visiting 3 or so more stores we realized that IKEA really does have the best deals for what we are looking for. We didn't want to go back to IKEA that day because we were a little tired of shopping, plus we were in a hurry to get to our hotel to get ready for the evening. So we decided to sleep on everything and then go back the next day before heading out of town to pick up a few more items.

Well, a few more items became a truck load!!!
We ended up getting an entire entertainment center
a little take for our entry hall. Although it is white in this picture, we got the black/brown colored.
a couple mirrors...a 7 foot one for our bedroom (pictured below) and a circular one for our kitchen area that I did not get a picture of.
We also got several decor items that I did not get pictures of and some lighting.

Overall, we had a great experience at IKEA....I don't think they husband knew what we were in for when we walked in this store! ;)
