i love ikea. my friends and i spent at least two hours just roaming looking at everything and re enacting the 500 days of summer ikea scene, haha. i came home with an awesome chair, a huge desk,  a gigantic bookcase and some odds and ends for the kitchen! i still need a mirror and a nightstand…and a sofa for the living room…but all in good time. my brother helped me put everything together and it went pretty smoothly, i was sorta freaked out by the bookcase at first but it only took thirty minutes to put together! i made him blondies in cupcake pan things for helping me, hehe see below : )
