Salvaged wardrobe I considered for the kitchen remodel.

At this point I am waiting for THE THING.

When we started this house, I did not know about THE THING… I did not know that if you wait, giant fanciness will show up on Craigslist and enrich your life.

It makes me sad to think of all the fanciness I missed out on before I was enlightened… But all I can do is try to make up for it now.

At this point, I am a little frustrated that THE KITCHEN THING has not shown up yet, but I know it is all part of the process.

Planning our DIY kitchen remodel – salvaged and repurposed cabinet ideas.

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.
