I have fallen in love with a retail store...is this possible? Yes...it is in my book...there is only one problem here...the nearest store is located 5 hours away...bad for me but gooood for Mr.CC and our checking account! Back in November we went over to Atlanta for some shopping and IKEA was our first stop...I think we spent four hours in this awesome store (warehouse)...we even had lunch there. After drooling over all the gorgeous rooms upstairs, we made it downstairs and started filling up our buggie...I'm a PRO at this task! During November we were in the middle of our kitchen re-model and we were hoping to find some light fixtures here and we did...one fixture for the middle of the room...one for over the sink and some under cabinet lights...we got some outstanding prices and are very pleased with how they look in our new kitchen. During this trip I also bought pillows...steak knives...kitchen gadgets...candles and party napkins. Since I had soooo much good luck with my first visit to IKEA, I knew I had to return soon and I did! While in Tampa for the Outback Bowl in December we made a stop at that location...lucky me...the Christmas items were all on SALE...I think I did a happy dance right there in the store...Mr.CC had to calm me down. This time I bought lots of Christmas goodies (sorry...I forgot to take pics before I put them away in the attic...come back in November for viewing)...I also bought my mom some under cabinets lights for her birthday...more candles...more knives and some frames for the hallway. If you have never been to a IKEA store...treat yourself...they have great stuff at LOW prices...just my kind of place!
