I snagged this video from Alec’s blog because it spoke to me on so many levels. Keith Olbermann says everything I’ve been thinking concerning Prop 8 that passed in California on November 4th.
If you voted for this crap proposition or support those who did…shame on you!
Ever since closing on Wednesday night all we’ve been doing is painting the interior of the new house and other home improvement projects. My body feels as if I’ve run a marathon and our favorite store is Home Depot…but I can see an end in site!
If you ever need your house painted…contact this guy, he’s a machine with a roller!
Pictures to come soon!
Don’t want to jynx anything…but we’re supposed to receive some of the above this afternoon. Our appointment for closing is at 2:30 pm, Alex woke up at 5:30am this morning with excitement!
We’re both behaving like little kids on Christmas Eve! Tonight we’ll start prepping for painting and the entire weekend will be filled with Home Improvement endeavors!
GPOYW = Gratuitous Picture Of Yourself Wednesday!
I enjoy this one from last week!
Pretty much all Alex and I can think about lately is the new house! We close on the 19th, time has really flown by, as well as the building process! We’re all amazed with how quick they worked.
This Friday Alex and I meet with the builder for the final walk through where we’ll point out all the imperfections that we want fixed before moving in. They’ll also show us how to work all the appliances in the kitchen as well as the digital sprinkler system!
Once we close we’re going to have a glass tile backsplash installed as well as the laminate floors my uncle gave us as a housewarming gift! We also plan on painting the entire house our own custom colors before we move in any furniture!
It’s a good thing we have our lease at the apartment through the entire month of December so we can complete all these renovations…and move our stuff in little by little!
Since we have the standard carpet and vinyl flooring in the house right now we’ll probably just donate it to a cause like Habitat for Humanity or see if we can sell it on craigslist.com! I swear we’re the only people that do renovations to a brand new house!
Italian Prime Minister, Berlusconi made yet another gaffe, something about Obama having a suntan…it has some people up in arms. Italians should just shove a sock in his mouth and call it a day!
Friend Alec and I always are going back and forth with who would be invited to a dream dinner party that we would of course host! Mine is as follows…
I would invite this guy:
and finally this guy:
Dinner would consist of Mediterranean fare with delicious wine pairings…after dinner we would play crazy board games like Taboo and Cranium!
Don’t make fun, you so do this all the time don’t you? And if so, please share your guest list!!!
Words can’t describe the pure joy and relief I felt last night and this morning! There were shouts, hugs, tears, and fist pumps! Finally….FINALLY! we have a President that I respect and look up to!
The campaign and results are so beyond historic and uplifting and I’m so freakin’ proud to be an American!
