I have actually referred to my furnishing style as "IKEA Zen".

I used to have a shot of my living room online, but it seems to be gone. I think the only furniture in there that's not IKEA are the TV stand, the gun stand (though it's on top of an IKEA dresser), and the CD stand I took over from my brother #2 at their last move (though I'm not sure about that, and conversely about whether one or more of the tables are really from IKEA despite looking the part). However, I'm sure I could find those items at the place, too ...

My fiancee is super-traditional in her tastes. I take her to IKEA in Houston for the first time, and we leave with her having spent $150 on decorations. She told me last week that we need to go back so she can see what's new this year.

I took Lupe there today, she was impressed at the stuff she could get for her craft room.  It was so packed we had to park a mile and a half away and take a shuttle bus there (we walked back).

We didn't make our first visit for 2 years after the first one opened here.  It took almost a year for the traffic to stop backing up onto the interstate but even into the second year the parking could be nuts.

Bring some Smørrebröd and Øl, and you'll be fine.

Victoria  got a birthday coupon so we went again today, and she ate cake.  She wants me to get more of the Lingonberry syrup so she can make more drinks.  Sigh IKEA.

And it went from 80F to a wind chill of 19F overnight.  Texas weather, you don't like it, give it five minutes and it will change.

IKEA also sells bright yellow vests, in case anyone wants to start revolution. :D

They also sell tea pots, and other kitchen stuff that seems to be coated with that strange element known as "Buymeum".  For some unknown reason, the girls have decided that the Lingonberry syrup is needed to make drinks on a regular basis.

Never seen one like that, but it sure is funny.  I feel the need to go and get some more kitchen stuff.  And maybe a computer desk.  And maybe.......
