Today I'm obsessed with...

Table lamps. Exciting right? You were probably hoping for a little wedding obsession but no, it's table lamps. Specifically lamps for our bedside tables. Right now we have these horribly mismatched lamps. I brought mine form my apartment & the boy brought his - they could not be more different - in size & style. It's one of those things I always said I would but when I had money & well, that hasn't happened. So they go on the registry (yes, the registry I am having such a hard time with).

The lamp problem is as follows - we don't have very big bedside tables so I need something that has a small footprint so I can put all my other crap on the table as well. So far, I haven't really found anything both reasonably priced and that we'll both like. The longer the search goes on, the less I care what the boy thinks.

I like these two, but I think he'll use his veto power.

This little cutie is cheap but can only take a 60 watt bulb. Not bright enough for reading. Of course, the lamp I have now only takes a 60 watt bulb but it's had 100 watts in there for as long as I can remember. The only problem I can see is that perhaps it's too hot got the small shade as the liner is a bit singed.

I think these may be the winners. They don't have as much "character" as the others but they have a narrow base, simple shades, nice color & the perfect height. Also the most expensive - crap.

Yeah, I know. This registry thing is really taking up a lot of my time. Who freakin' obsesses about this stuff? Luckily, I know there are more of you. It may be different obsessions, but I know I'm not the only one. Thank God for blogs, right?

you don't even want to know how many china patterns and crystal patterns and bed sheets and bed sets i have looked it.

i think it might be the easiest thing to obsess over because you can do it by yourself and don't have to take in anyone's input...not even the groom!
