veni, vidi, vici. honestly, that's how i feel about ikea. i mean, i love it, as long as i don't go more often than once per year. it's overwhelming. and i make a list for days before i actually go god forbid i forget anything and have to make my way through the endless maze of aisle this! and bin that! and lingonberry-flavored foods! and words with umlauts! and stacks and stacks of really good priced stuff i don't really need! so, for 2012, our ikea trip is complete. and it was a success. and my outfit matched the rugs too!
