    So easy! And it didn’t take anytime at all!!! 🙂

    Love the headboard, but the video? It’s the best!

    my take away is that your kitchen looks like a disaster zone, which only makes you more real in my eyes and puts you further up on a pedestal. You are ‘every woman’…. 🙂

      Yeeeesssss…. It DID occur to me that possibly I should NOT post that photo on the Internet.

      I compromised by cropping out the worst of it.

    i adore that video. i am slightly embarassed to admit that i watched it twice. the two of you make it look so easy. and, honestly, your husband is a genius. and you are doubly a genius for marrying him. the dance at the end was the best. so cute!

    Hysterical! Would it be considered obsessive if I watched this all day long? We had to remove a second story window 45 years ago to get our bed in the house. Alas, sadly, there was no grandeur involved. This video made me thing of Charlie Chaplin. More please!

    I can’t help but repeat what everyone else is saying – you married a good one. Seriously. Think of all the wonderfully oversized things we could all fill out homes with if we had partners who willingly built second-floor ramps and tied us off for safety? THE CRAP WE COULD BUY WOULD BE LIMITLESS. This begs the question: Does Paul have a brother? I know a gal in Maryland who likes to buy stuff from Craigslist (read: me). I’m just sayin’.

      I was wondering about a brother also. Perhaps he has two?!

        Be very careful, girls…it has been my experience that there can only be ONE totally awesome Paul-type person per family. If he had brothers, one might be cute, one might be smart, one might be romantic, one might be understanding, one might be able to dance and one might be understanding, but rarely will there be two with the WHOLE package!

    So basically you’re awesome and Paul is awesome, and it’s only right that you have such awesome things (even if they have to occasionally be delivered through windows.)

    OMG…do you have an extra one of those laying around? Pauls, I mean, not headboards. Anyone who will use a work glove to protect both floor and headboard is worth genetic duplication.

    Also, that ramp was pretty spiffy. You should have him draw up the configuration for those of us who are less handy 😀

    That Paul is Wiley Coyote Genius! What an engineering mind. You two are so funny and aren’t you blessed to have the best playmate ever? (You know, the one who always lets you win!) I would bet that Paul would say that you keep him entertained and laughing. What a good sport and a perfect match for a very clever girl.

    I love the way he tied you to the roof but he had no safety rope or net. Do you think that he believes you are a little clumsy or that he values you above all things? You two are too cute.

    I love it when the right people end up together. He needs you. And you, for sure, need him! Thanks for sharing!

    Your cinematic brilliance has convinced me of several things.

    1. You are raging with amazingness and brilliant, shining genius.
    2. Craigslist? Is almost the BEST. THING. EVER.
    3. Paul? Is EVEN BETTER THAN CRAIGSLIST.
    4. Paul clearly worships the goddess that is you with gleeful (and twirly) abandon.
    5. You are clearly the second coming of Steven Spielberg.
    6. I could win the Powerball tomorrow and STILL never manage to be as perfectly awesome as you, so I need to stop trying right. now. But hey – almost perfectly awesome is still available, so I’ll just strive for that.

      I am awarding your comment a very valuable (and imaginary) prize… I may skip printing it out and go directly to tattooing it on my forehead.

    I just caught up on three parts and my sides hurt from laughing. Exactly the reason why I hold off and save your posts up since I can’t possibly endure that much pain more than once a week. The whole saga is pretty epic and the video is awesome. Love the dancing at the end. You guys are nuts. I love it.

    That was awesome! See, aren’t you glad your foresight made you marry Paul? He makes it look so easy. Funny the things we do to collect and house our treasures. My latest is two 8-foot corbels. It was a logistical nightmare to get them home in my sister-in-law’s car, and while I have no idea what I’m going to do with them, I simply HAD to have them. Here’s to all the fellow Mel Fishers of the home decor world! Our prowess should be an Olympic sport.

      8-foot corbels? I didn’t know they made them that big. Did you get them off a cathedral?

        When I read that comment yesterday, I wondered too WHAT IS A CORBEL?! Gosh, this blog is SO EDUCATIVE!!! lol – I guess a corbel of that length MUST come at least from a cathedral – I shall check if the Basilique of Sacré-Coeur and the Notre Dame de Paris are still complete… 🙂

    A big round of “For He’s A Jolly Good Fellow” for Paul. Will be sending this to my husband to let him know that he is not the only one married to a crazy woman who finds AMAZING things. 🙂
