Last week Mr. and I celebrated our 12 wedding anniversary. We decided we wanted Chinese food so we went to a lunch buffet.
The food above was my plate.
(Is now hungry just looking at it)
Part of a gift from my parents was a $25.00 gift card for WINNERS.
I like what they carry there but do not go there much as I spend most of my shopping time in thrifts and buying my other bathroom necessities, makeup and such from places like Walmart or Zellers (Zellers is a Canadian store very similar to Target).
When Mr. and I get a gift card we first try and find something for the house we both agree on. But if there is nothing that is too thrilling we split the card in half and buy what we want. (We are pretty good at sharing since we have been together since we were 14 years old. Even though my Mother said I was not allowed to date until I was 16. I sure showed her... *laugh*) So with my half here is what I purchased.

I used to have a cheepie from the dollar store but haven't seen it around in ages. Plus this one is sooo much cuter! *lol*
I might just wear it out tomorrow like a hood
My search has become a slight obsession. I have my money stashed and hidden away from my Birthday just waiting for the perfect vanity table to come my way. Now why is it when you do not have the money for something it is plentiful but when you finally do they seem like a rarity!
My search has become part of a daily routine. Added onto my morning coffee with blogger I now turn to the classifieds in my area ready to click on a ad that shows a vanity table and message the seller as fast as my fingers can type before someone else does. I leave the page up on my computer all day pressing refresh whenever I remember. *Seriously* One did pop up that I was in love with at first site... But it's a little farther than I am willing to travel to go get it. *sigh*
The money it would cost in gas could probably buy me 8 bag sales.
So as long as all goes well... Next weekend Mr. Coconut and I will be taking a out of town day trip. We plan on thrifting and trying to find a vanity table in a few towns over from where I am. We will actually be going to two different towns and to thrift shops we have never even set foot in before. So it will be quite a fun adventure *I imagine*. I also looked up some used furniture stores in those towns and found a couple that (Judging by google maps) Look like they very well could have a vanity table inside them. *hahaha* "Stalker-ish huh" Now I didn't actually see a vanity table in them.. just by the pics it looks like they carry vintage furniture.
"Dear Vanity: Even though you do not yet exist in my life I have been preparing for you. Last week I bought you a pretty little lamp that is going to make you and I feel sooo glamorous. I have jewellery I want to keep in one of your drawers and I have a tray that can sit on you and hold my small perfume collection. I have hair flowers that need to be cozy for the Winter.. and a BUNCH of other stuff. So if you could just do your part... and try to find me too. I would be very grateful. *Hope to meet you soon* I will be waiting with arms wide open and a bottle of Old English Lemon oil to condition your wood! *If that doesn't make you excited?! I don't know what will!!"
Love always: Coconut
