weekends.

We spotted this lamp last weekend and wanted it so, so bad. We were a week away from payday so shelling out $40 for a lamp was ridiculous and we left the store hoping that it may still be there when we got paid this weekend…
We ventured back to the store to buy a new bamboo cutting board and decided that we would re-visit the lamp, and see if we still wanted it - if it was even still there. It was! Now, it was just deciding if spending that much money on a table lamp was worth it to us or not.
We decided to split the cost of the lamp so no one spent more money than they needed to on something so frivolous.
We got to the register and our $40 lamp rang up as $15! We were stoked! Admittedly, we brought her home and being the dork that I am I proposed that we name the lamp.
So tumblr, we present you Joan, our killer vintage style lamp, named for Christina Hendrick’s Mad Men character, Joan Holloway. If you know with she is, then maybe the shape of the lamp gives a little insight as to why we thought that up…
Aside from Joan, we also purchased a game Jason has wanted since we bought our PS3, Just Cause 2 and I got a new apron, courtesy of some awesome local sales. Now, to spend the evening watching a movie together with pizza and drinks!
