So it begins..

Sometimes I think I'm pretty funny.  And sometimes Adam is pretty funny too.. so I thought it might be interesting to blog about how awesome we can be.  Don't confuse that sentence with us being awesome..because it is very different, the key word was 'can'. 
I'm not really sure where I want to start.. because if I start now I risk us not being awesome for a while and leaving you all with nothing to waste your time reading.. but if I start from the beginning, I may never get a break.. it's a gamble really..
I guess I'll just jump around and keep things interesting.. {hopefully}.

*Warning: this story isn't about us being awesome..moreso it is about me being lazy and Adam being great.*
So.. Adam is a cop.  And he works stupid hours.  This leaves me at home to do..well, anything I want.  Which typically isn't cleaning or laundry, so I asked him if we could find me a project.  Of course, he said yes, because he is pretty great.  I slaved for days over Pinterest and Craigslist ( was torture) and found myself an awesome hutch that I wanted to buy, repaint, and put in my upstairs hallway (don't think I'm nuts...our hallway is 8 ft wide and could easily handle this hunk of beauty).  So, I set up an appointment with the seller, then make Adam drive me to there and then make Adam buy this hutch for $100 - {sweet deal}.  I then make Adam take me to Home Depot, and I spend roughly an hour picking out the perfect shade of white, and another 30 minutes or so picking out the perfect shade of gray.  About a month later... Adam asks if I am ever going to get started on it.. and I say, well yeah... and about 2 weeks later he asks if I want help with it and I say, well yeah... so we head outside to paint.  Needless to say, I got bored pretty quick and went inside.  Adam painted the entire hutch, and asked that I paint the accents...but I got bored of that pretty quick too {I guess painting projects aren't my thing}, so Adam had to finish that too.  I would feel bad...I really would.. but after the hutch Adam said, "I think I want another project" - !!!!! Who would've thought... I was certain he would say, "You suck.."  But instead, he wants more projects! I've already picked out project number 2.  Thank heavens for handy husbands!

Hutch Before: (you can't tell, but it was an awful old yellowy color, with mint green accents)

Hutch After: (lighting is terrible, I never claimed to be a photographer)

Project Number 2: - This kitchen table!


  1. I think you have more "projects" than the ones you mentioned. Do we need to have an intervention? ;)

  2. Haha I sure love you. I also love the fact that you are so gifted in perfectly relaying situations of the two of you. I felt like I was a part of the whole thing, standing there, watching you two. Haha You crack me up! Oh and Adam did an amazing job on the hutch! Miss you! And come to Vegas dang it!!!!!
