the good news is, Doo and i went to ikea after the temp agency. i originally wanted to buy the armoire that JJ's parents gave us money to buy (for xmas), but i couldn't find it! argh. so then i decided to go look for white couch covers for the flower couch. and online they weren't available but said they cost $100. in store i looked it up and they cost $50. great! so i found one. then i also got an orchid. and a scrubby brush for my kitchen. and some artwork. and a vase. and some candles. and for some reason i lost the vase. i have a suspicion that i left it on top of my car and drove away and it shattered on the ground behind me.
and Doo got just a kitchen scrubby brush for .99 cents.
i mean, i think, maybe, i have a shopping problem?? ghodddd.
so ikea has self-check-out now. and when i rang up the white couch cover and....it said $11. ELEVEN DOLLARS! and the orchid was $12.99. the orchid was more than the couch cover. hahahahha. i was about to shout out in happiness, then Doo made a face like to shut the hell up...you know, in case it was a mistake. so basically i got 90% off.
and got a whole new look for the living room. FINALLY, A COHESIVE LOOK:
isn't it nice? i'm kind of sad about no more flower couch. it's an end of an era. sigh. and doesn't the room look a little "boy-ish" now?!?!? my only pink is the chair and the flowers on the fireplace. OMG!
oh, and here is our artwork: i'm obsessed: JJ's obsessed: and it's PICASSO! well, sort of: Picasso for ikea. for $39.99:
