saturday wonders.

saturday taylor and i had a spontaneous day.
it was the first saturday in a long time i got to spend with him, since he has spent that last few working on the dining table.

we woke up early and bought paint from benjamin moore to paint the apartment. then we drove out to gardena on a whim for the h.d. buttercup "almost 100% off" warehouse sale, which turned out to be a bust.

by the time we got back to santa monica we were starving, and felt father's office would be the only cure.

so we ate... like really ate... like pigs

all of montana ave.'s shops were having a street sale. we barely made it across the street from father's office and taylor crashed on a couch.
our bellies were so full, but i couldn't stop laughing.
people were walking buy saying "gee, that couch looks really comfortable..."

after we drove back home to meet taylor's parents at our apartment
on the way back, we randomly found frank gehry's house. we got out and looked around...
i wondered off to a garage sale across the street and found this amazing chair

taylor and i decided we had to have it.... and so did everyone else.
taylor ran up the street to the atm to get cash while i stayed behind. there was a lot of tension over this chair, but we were the lucky winners.
$50!!! Go us!

its from 1961 and has travelled the world - it was a government chair, apparently.

i'm happy its ours. i will post more pictures soon to show how it looks in our new apartment.

we had many other adventures this weekend that will be up soon too, namely our painting disaster...

stay tuned, and happy monday!
