I thought I could just order it online, but shipping costs were outrageous. No way was I going to pay $129 in shipping for a $129 item. Silly, right? So I've been trying to figure out a good time to get down there, and it's finally happening.
Even better is that it's just my mom and me, for the first time in AGES. Post-shopping, we're going back to my parents' house where I will spend then night. I almost invited Ava to go with us. She's a decent little shopper, and just adores my parents. But after much consideration (about 30 seconds), I decided I deserve a little time away. (Now, if someone could just explain why I feel a little guilty about it).
Anyway, back to IKEA. I also want to check out this toy storage system:
I would love to have this in our playroom (which is really our dining room, but playroom is much more functional these days). I love the drawers.
Of course, not far from IKEA is the fabulous SouthPark Mall, which houses North Carolina's only Tory Burch shop.
In the unforgettable words of Liz Lemon, "I want to go to there."
