No? Boy that's weird... I do it ALL. THE. TIME.
Case in point: Today I found 2 dressers on Craigslist that I need in my house immediately. Go ahead, ogle them:
Do you need these things like I do? Do you lust after their grainy surface, and wonder "what would he do if I brought home 2 more dressers when we just threw one away last week?"
Do you then say to yourself, "but it's only $100 for BOTH!" And then you post it on your blog hoping secretly that someone might buy them for you?
And if the dressers weren't enough - here is a dining table with chairs:
Oh craigslist, oh Oak. Whats a girl with a slight obsession over your well-priced goods with rich texture to do?

And tell you that I am NEVER MOVING AGAIN.
Packing in THE WORST.
In other news, I bought a hutch!
Sorry about the picture quality, it's from the craigslist posting. This was a big score - $75! And when I e-mailed about it, I used my most friendly typing skills...

This day was wonderful! We started out with a hike up to lookout point, or something like that to see Old Faithful go off. This was well worth the effort, the hike was short although somewhat steep, but it gave a great perspective of Old Faithful, and all of her adoring fans. After this, we all saw the Geyser basin in the Old Faithful area. Some of our group rented bikes instead of geyser-gazing, but they ended up returning them early, citing a lack "places to go without people in the way."
We also did the tour of the Lodge this day - I think it was at 3:00 or so, and still had time to visit the Hamilton store which was very cool. The older contingent of our group was very pleased to have a day fairly hiking-free, and we all enjoyed a nice dinner at the Old Faithful Lodge dining room. After dinner, we sat on the porch of the lodge and looked at some of our pictures from the day. Once the bar near the porch closed down, we went back to the cabins to play cards. A very nice, relaxing day in Yellowstone!
