I love when AJ has the day off. I love doing projects together (or even not together but seeing what each other is working on). I really love having an adult companion around the house… there is just something to be said about communicating in full sentances with someone. 🙂 The Govenor has ordered everyone off the roads in Massachusetts after 4pm or else you could suffer a $500 fine or a year in prison (those two don’t seem quite equal to me…). Regardless, he’s out running now before the storm gets too much worse while I’m blogging through my second cup of hot chocolate. I’m pretty sure I have marshmellow around the edges of my mouth from greedy sips.
See the snow? And notice how I tried to fool myself that it was spring? 🙂
We found out Houzz is coming for the official photo shoot on Sunday, February 24 so we are feverishly working through our list. I’ve committed to doing one thing on my list every day (or at least starting / finishing one thing). Here’s what we got done today…
I’ve been working on Drew’s pink chair. He is still calling it “pink” even though it’s mostly blue now. Maybe it’ll forever be the pink chair in his mind even though I’ve masculined (is that even a word?) it up. Remember how I said I was trying out the “painting upholstery technique I found on Pinterest? Well, it’s pretty great, although a little time consuming. But trust me, it is far quicker than upholstering.
I’ll post photos next week of the finished product, it’s only 1/3 done now.
Try not to be counting down the seconds. 🙂
All right, here is what my main man worked on today… he did the second coat of polyurthane on our master floors! I’m pretty sure there isn’t a soul out there who is more excited about this than me… have I mentioned that living with two roomfuls of stuff in the guest bedroom is a little hard? Yes, yes, I have. I’ve whined about it multiple times. But looking at this photo makes it worth it. And it’s pretty darn exciting to think that we may be in there on Sunday if the floors are dry enough (the first coat took about 24 hours to dry and not be tacky, which was faaaar faster than it took the stain, that was probably about four days).
Anyone else stuck in “the storm of the century” this weekend?
Anyone else feel like they were being attacked by all of Massachusetts at either the grocery store or gas station yesterday?
Sidenote: I had NO idea what to buy to stock up for a storm, so I made sure to get all the stuff for cookies. Yep. Smartie pants, right here. In all fairness, I did make sure we had fruit and veggies and hummus. And stuff for dinners. Basically I did normal shopping but made sure to stay in the 20 items or less lane so I wouldn’t be in Market Basket for six hours reading People magazine while waiting in line.
