IKEA is here!

You know how I mentioned there's a new IKEA in Colorado?

I went there. It was crazy.
There were police directing traffic. There were event staff directing pedestrians to slow down the flow of people into the building. There were people bumping into me (now I'm having flashbacks of pickpocketing fears from Panama trip and I swing my purse to the front), kids freaking out, adults freaking out, little carts and huge yellow bags EVERYWHERE.

So it was pretty much awesome. Like Disney World (Disclaimer: I've never been to Disney World), only at the end of all the lines, there's more lines and you get lost trying to get out of the parking garage. I think I'll wait until the crowd dies down. It's been a month since the grand opening and it's still like this, so I can only assume I need to wait about a year. Needless to say, I didn't buy anything, but I managed to spend 4 hours there. Sigh.

On a sad note, I checked out the HULTO chairs while I was there, and I think they're too small. LAME.

I'm still considering them though. Because they're still a possibility.
