Weekend wah wahh, open house dupe and sneak peek
This weekend was one of those ones that should've been better but just kind of fell flat. There's this festival that goes on around here this time every year and I always make sure we're out of town for the day so as not to have to deal with the crowds and traffic. There's this old antique warehouse I wanted to go to so we made a little day trip out of being in the neighborhood. Some days antique places are awesome and some days...well, it's just someone else's crap. The only thing I considered was a pair of oil lamp holders similar to these...
There's a spot on this tall, thin wall I thought they might look cool on but I decided against them. I know when I'm looking for just the right thing to take over the current look, I'll probably always wonder if they would've looked as stupid as I talked myself into believing.
We went to this Mexican place even though I was trying to hint at the safer pizza option but the Mr said he likes having culinary "adventures" when we're out of town. Yeah? Well he wasn't the one in a 100 degree bathroom with a line full of women staring at the stall in the back of some hill jack flea market unable to unleash the kracken due to peer pressure. I had to circle round and pray no one was in there when I was at the breaking point. No Mexican food on the road...EVER.
There was a goodly amount of passing pop up storms which made the air even thicker and heavier than it already was. I hate this time of year.
Sunday we had no plans so I made breakfast, we got sucked in to Love It or List It reruns and then decided before hitting an open house or two we would eat lunch so as not to be tempted to eat out. So I made chicken dogs and a slice of watermelon and half a clementine.
We went to this one open house that caught our eye a few weeks back. We weren't really considering it but we were nosy and so was half the neighborhood apparently. Here's a few pics in case you're nosy too...
The above looks like a super modern Florida room but it smells musty in there and it was gross hot. Lots of cracks in the walls so it felt like the over the top items were meant to be a distraction. Just like this...
I don't know whether the Easter bunny is supposed to deliver me on Easter or if I'm supposed to bathe in a donut phone, either way it didn't distract me from the chunks of missing plaster and cheap box they slapped in and called a sink. It was such a let down because the pictures in the listing were so nice but you see it in person and it's like "ugh!" Wah wahhhh.
We came home and took a little nappy poo then went down and did a session on the Total Trainer. Holy crap man! We really upped our strength game last week and the Total Trainer laughed at us, kicked us in the gonads and left us a shaking pulp by the end. Well played TT, well played.
For dinner, I roasted a small fryer chicken and made some mashed taters and green beans. It felt like a good old fashioned Sunday dinner like I think they do on Blue Bloods. I don't watch it but every time I flip by, I see them all eating.
I'm going to work on the TV armoire this week and hope the weather cooperates. The dry time is ridiculous with this humidity. I finally finished the side table. Here's a horrible phone pic sneak peek...
You can see I tried to match the top as close as possible to the new flooring. The Mr seems to love it so as long as he's happy, that's all I care about right now.
What did you guys do this weekend?
