Today is my eighth wedding anniversary. Apparently you may celebrate this anniversary with gifts of bronze and pottery, or (if you are more modern) linens and lace.

Isn’t that almost a Stevie Nicks song?

Anyway…it’s a big day! Bronze linens and lace pottery aside…It’s a celebration of all that our family has become! It’s a time to think back to the big day itself- the best party that my husband and I have ever attended! With all of our best friends and closest family! A day to celebrate the fact that we really are (still) best friends and truly happy!

I think I will celebrate by planning the re-vamping of my laundry room.

(Side note: We will actually celebrate on Friday, with a tasty meal out and possibly a movie…Tuesdays just aren’t really good for us and/or our sitters. heh.)

I am not talking about a new washer or dryer (unfortunately, we don’t need those). I AM talking about new paint, a few shelves, maybe the removal of cabinet doors, some decluttering and reorganization…

Have I mentioned that I have discovered the time-suck that is pinterest?

DEAR LORD.

It’s either going to really motivate me to do some great things around here or make me lose my mind due to wanting things that I just can’t have (specifically a house with 20 foot ceilings that has bookshelves from floor to ceiling in at least one room along with a ladder that glides around them AND skinny legs that are dressed in cable knit tights/socks and boots on a daily basis).

Can you really ever have enough books? Or boots? I say that the answer is no. To both.

Anyway.

So, today I will embark on a Lowe’s Home Improvement adventure with my almost-three-year-old (when did that happen, anyway?) baby boy while the other is at school (again, where has the time gone?), then surprise my hubs with a list of manual labor type to-do’s when he gets home.

Happy Anniversary?
