- The bamboo blinds arrived for the sliders. I was especially happy that they arrived while my parents were up - Momsy and Daddykins have a great critical eye and will give me constructive advice on the house decor. I love the mister to death, but a helpful critic on home decorating he is not. So I was quite pleased to have some in-person opinions on what I considered a bit of a window treatment risk. Verdict: love. Daddio was pleased with the function and Mamacita was pleased with the appearance - put those hands together and you have exactly what I was going for. Happy dance.
Don't you just love the warmth and completeness it has verses this pic? It brings a brown tone that we have in baskets and our granite over to this half of the area. And total cost for both shades? $30 from Overstock.com. Cha-ching.
- Mom unclogged Alli's sink. Gross, I know. But Ryan and I had pulled the drain out and run $50 worth of Liquid Plumber down the thing trying to get it to drain at the right speed (or at all). Enter Handywoman Stacie to go underneath the sink and show us how it's done. It drains perfectly AND she fixed the stopper that we pulled out trying to fix it. Gotta love her.
- After Mom unclogged the sink I walked in the kitchen and said "Now all I need is for Dad to install a light over my shower and I'm golden!" I was joking. I really was. But shortly thereafter we made the trip to Home Depot (so happy I got to introduce the workers to my pops) and got the supplies. And just about an hour after that....let there be light.
How about that?! I had no idea this process was so easy!! Ryan and Dad had it done in literally an hour. This isn't a show-you-how-to-do-it blog, but Meredith at Welcome to Heardmont and her hubby followed a similar process that she detailed here, in case you need it. Seriously, so easy. Now I'm looking up and wondering where else I can put some...a girl can never have enough light.
Well, I'm off to wrap up the weekend by cleaning up, some spray painting, and a glass of wine. You know, just trying to add to the cork collection.
