It's go time and what I'm reading this week

Well today is the last day of having 12 year old laminate and not sure how old carpet.  I really hope I don't regret getting rid of carpet.  I'm a carpet girl!  I'm still considering this one vintage area rug but I need to ask some questions on it first.

But enough of that stuff.  Let's get to...

Watch Weezer's Drummer Catch a Frisbee Mid-Song Without Stopping  (You don't have to be a Weezer fan to appreciate this drummers awesomeness.  I love that this features both the fan video of the incident and then the band's drum cam!)

  1. Great links. I will read them and then it is definitely go time. This is it. Don't get scared now!

  2. Have y'all installed new flooring before? I always wondered how easy/difficult that would be. I have very little faith in myself when it comes to projects around the house. Do you read/watch a lot of online tutorials, or is this stuff that you grew up learning?

    Today I bought two front row tickets to a Beach Boys concert and my brothers and I will present them to my parents tomorrow night. My mom is the queen of not showing emotion, so it would be awesome if for once in her life she freaked out. Hopefully this concert will make her feel like she is a 17 year-old again.

    1. Nope. Our friend is in construction and he did 3 last week so we have confidence he can guide us in the right direction and he claimed we could "knock it out in one day." I hope he's right. So I'm hoping between him and the Mr and if I have to be the cutter lady on the saw, I will, we can bust it out.

      I hope your mom loves it and it'd be great for her to freak out for you! ;-) I'm sure she'll be tickled!

  3. Good luck this weekend--I'll be thinking about you!! I was able to leave early today from work so I ran errands that helped to free up my Saturday. Tomorrow I'll be cutting the lawn and doing house stuff. I'm planning a wonderful day trip for one day when I'm on vacation and the hubs is all onboard. A coworker of mine gave me some tips for a town in Wisconsin (guess what's there... The Swiss Colony!!! Yep, I'm a'goin'!) with these darling shops so I'm planning it out for a couple weeks from now. Sunday I'll be doing some shopping for mom's birthday which is next week. Not sure of the plans given her situation but I'm hoping to talk to her this weekend about it. Right now I'm watching the Stanley Cup Finals so the rest of my evening is going to be mellow which is good because I'll be asleep before 9pm.... =o)

    1. Oh I bet you will! LOL

      Swiss Colony! SWOON! I wanna hear all about it! Road trips are awesome! We're planning one in a month to meet some friends and I can't wait. Hope you have a good one!
