Okay so I’m going to TL;DR this weekend now and finish the full recap which I actually started a week ago. Yes, for this weekend. It’s a story, because NOTHING we do can every be done WITHOUT a story.
It started with Ben waking me up 8 days ago with a HAREBRAINED IDEA, in the middle somewhere there was about 10 minutes when I thought we’d be stuck in our bedroom FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES and then ends with me covered in paint and READY FOR BED.
We started with this:
And ended with this:
The journey along the way was… terrific.
Somewhere in all this terrificness we accidentally bought this too:
It’s pretty awesome and will go in the living room to get rid of the horrid gold pool table lamp the previous owners had. We don’t have a pool table and I REALLY HATE gold fixtures and after 2.5 years I will not be sad to see it go. At all. It’s been ruining perfectly good pictures for TOO LONG.
It will be here in a week and because it has to be installed in the middle of the ceiling TWO FLOORS UP, we are going to pay our badass (and cheap) handy man to install it. We don’t have a ladder that goes that high and honestly, if we take eight days and 75,398 cuss words to install ONE DOOR, we really have no business being that far off the ground. With electricity.
