Warm weather makes me want to get out of the house, whether for a walk, watching V play at the park or shopping. Of course, this is about shopping, because you probably don’t want to read about our walk or trip to the playground. World Market sent me a postcard for $20 off a purchase of $20 or more, as a birthday gift. How thoughtful, seeing as we barely know each other. Anyway, the boys and I strolled over to World Market, postcard in
purse hand. Here’s what caught my eye. The Josephine Desk for $199.99. The design is classic and simple, but I know Ben could build something for less than 200 bucks. This desk would also look great as an entry table.
This industrial chic dining chair for $109.99. They also have a coordinating backless barstool. I don’t think Ben would go for an industrial style, though. Oddly enough, the man doesn’t like the manly look. No, he’s not gay. Haha.
We walked out of World Market with two green Velvet Toss pillows and a bag of chocolate pennies.
It was a toss-up between the green and Moroccan blue, but I think the blue was too similar to the pillows we already have.
And the yellow-green is the perfect spring color. It reminds me of the first leaves after winter.
After WM, we walked over to Ross. These lamps are great, especially for $29.99 each, shade included. Am I the only one who thinks anything more than $30 is too much for a lamp?
My sisters just came out for a visit and we took a trip to Ross to find lamps. Ash and I saw an awesome set for $45 each, but she didn’t know if her boyfriend would. Upon his approval, she bought these:
When she brought them in the house,with all seriousness, Vincent said, “Oh my gosh! Those are incredible!” Can you tell he shops with decor loving parents?
I’ve been looking for a table to sit over the theater room sub woofer, which is
smarter than your average bear (name that cartoon) taller than the average table, with little luck. Every cheap table is just that, cheap. I like the style of this table, but I think Ben would like to build something sturdier, even if it is $29.99.
Lastly, we dropped by Bed Bath & Beyond. This pillow would be fun to duplicate. If you think I’m cheap because I don’t want to spend more than $30 on a lamp, you know I’m too cheap to buy a $29.99 pillow. At least I can’t make the lamp.

Mr. Ev with Mrs. Meyers: Priceless.
We’ve never used Mrs. Meyers’ laundry soap, so Vincent picked out a trial bottle for $1.99. Then, Ev wanted it and wouldn’t let go. Silly boy.
We love Ross for their deals on rugs, bedding, and housewares. We’ve snagged a few friends from World Market and got a smokin’ deal on our dining chairs.
Have you seen new items that made your heart pitter patter? Do you have a price your unwilling to go over for certain items? Do you use Mrs. Meyers stuff to clean your abode? Maybe you have kids who prefer strange items over toys?
