It's been pretty hot here this week, at least for us NorthWesterners. So since a lot of people here don't have AC, they flock to movie theaters, target, or the beach.

Sam and I just hang out at Ikea.

Mostly because it's not hot, there are couches, we get decorating ideas but are not tempted to buy anything, and there's endless hilarious people watching.

Oh, and there are numerous sets for cheesy picture taking.

Aaaaanndd, I have now decided that when I have a house, the walls of my kitchen will be pink, which will be an amazing backdrop for my blue appliances. I need a house!

I never really thought about how a lot of homes wouldn't have A/C in the NW. The other day Mr. V and I saw a house for sale here in AZ built in 1991 with NO A/C. We thought...REALLY? I love you putting your lipstick on in the fake bathroom.

1. Gorgeous dress. You look lovely!
2. Do IKEAs everywhere look the same? Haha. Even the carpark looks the same as ours. So weird.

I had just wrote a post to IKEA as well (my very first post), your photos are pretty.

Tilly said...

How do you manage to make Ikea look so glamorous? And how are you tempted not to buy anything?! Have you seen 500 Days of Summer? There's a similar scene in Ikea...

I looooooove Ikea. I don't even own a house yet either but me and my friend go in there and get ideas for what we'd buy if we did have one. We love the all the children's room stuff...it's adorable!

Betty Lou said...

Yes Andi they look all the same everywhere around the world :D

Your house is quite nice and I really like it and also got some ideas from your pictures for my home as well. I wish that I also can make my home more sweet and more attractive.

Casey said...

Ah, Ikea! My favorite place to go for ideas, cheap food, and crowd watching! lol. I love that you took posed pictures in the store--I've always wanted to do that! haha!

Love your dress too, btw!!!

That photo really makes me want that kitchen, but not from Ikea... I've heard some horror stories about Ikea stuff. Anyway, you are adorable, as always, in those pictures. Especially smooching the little kitten, Awww!

Velvet said...

Helen said...

Every time I go into Ikea I want to take home that stuffed bulldog. One of these days I hope we will have a real one!
