Filling an ex-boyfriend’s truck with trash… a DIY story. Texas Pt 2

Shortly after I started blogging, I wrote one of my favorite posts— a departure from anything house-related, it was the story of how my best friend and I packed up and moved to Texas.

But I ended up taking part of the story out: the part about how we filled an ex-boyfriend’s truck with trash.

At the time, I was new to this whole idea of over-sharing with total strangers on the internet, and I cautioned myself to exercise some restraint.

But I’ve developed a sense of (possibly misguided) friendship with you total strangers, and I really want to tell you this story… Plus, you know, restraint just really isn’t my thing.

A story about my best friend, a guy who wasn't very nice, and how we repaid him.

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.

Kitchen design possibility of ridiculous proportion.

It took me no time at all to extrapolate an entire kitchen design from a single photo… a photo that is completely indistinct and has nothing to do with anything kitchen-related.

I am just that good.

I walked downstairs and silently handed the computer to Paul… Then I waited patiently, because the concept might not be immediately apparent if you are not blessed with my innate ability and imagination.

Also, the person who speaks first loses.

Planning our old-house kitchen remodel… I want to repurpose some unusual materials to make the design interesting.

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.

Favorite new-to-me dahlias I grew this year.

These are just the dahlias that I am growing for the first time… You can see my full flower order and last year’s favorites in my earlier dahlia post. I am leaving out anything I’m not happy with or that isn’t performing well.

Overall I like a pink/yellow color scheme with some purple/orange for variety and contrast… But sometimes I get distracted and start thinking I need extra variety. Which is always a mistake— I am someone who needs no variety at all.

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.
