The Lortab Lamp

We are pretty organized and somewhat ready to leave for the dreaded drive Sunday to drop off Emily, so I decided to keep busy and do a little junkin' and thrifting and that paid off. I found this uber cra cra lamp in the corner on the floor of my local GW:

It's hard to tell from this pic but the orange is fantastic and the white textured overlay is the right amount of funk.

So I get up to the counter to pay and the lovely female checkout person says "Find everything you wanted?"
I say " Absolutely...I got a crazy cool lamp!"
She says "It looks like a kind of fruit, I can't think of the name because I'm on Lortab"
I say "An orange?"
She says "No smaller, and with that white stuff inside that you peel off"
We went through every possibility, from tangerine to satsuma. Meanwhile the line is growing behind me and people are not finding this convo funny. I finally paid for my lamp and told Lortab Lady to have a nice day and she responds, "Oh I am"
Whatever gets you through the day...I will probably need one of those on Sunday.

I can see this orange peel lamp in many are a few:

Have a great weekend and keep me in your thoughts and prayers. That drive home without a child will be the longest ride of our life.


  1. Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and appearance. I must say that you've done a
    excellent job with this. Also, the blog loads very quick for me on Opera.
    Excellent Blog!
