I got a Walmart gift card from my brother and I'm going to use it on stuff for the house. Our living room needs a lot more light and it's starting to drive me crazy. For example - I usually crochet at my computer and watch movies or TV online. The last couple of days, its been really cold, and the dog's been cold, so I've covered up in a blanket in the recliner with the dog under the blanket and watched Netflix on my Wii. Except that there is no light in my living room! The indirect light from the dining room and the lava lamps at the far end of the room just don't cut it
So I'm aiming for two matching lamps for either end of the room.
It's funny, three years ago when my FIL didn't bother asking for any hints and got me a Bed, Bath and Beyond gift card, I thought it was awful (I was living at home and had absolutely no use for such a thing and it was so clearly 'she's a girl, therefore she will like it' kind of thing), but now, I'd love it! I can think of at least a dozen things I could buy there now.
