Reason no. 532 my husband is awesome

So after several days of going up into the sauna-on-steroids attic, drilling holes in the ceiling and wall to discover 2x4s in the way, pushing fishing poles and hangers through the ceiling to see where the hole went to, hours of holding his arms above his head and general frustrations of going from "this is an easy project" to "worst idea ever," Mark was able to install my little old recessed lighting in the cove in our living room so that I could have a little artsy cove.  It looks so pretty!  Mark will say the project wasn't worth it, but I sure do love the way it looks.  I'm so grateful for a husband who will go through loads of frustration to follow through with something I've asked him to do.  He even cleaned up the mess all by himself!  Thanks, honey, for helping me create my little dream home!  On to the next project on our neverending home improvement list ...

Pretty!  It looks even better at night.

Celebrity weddings / pop culture, gay marriage and a random sports story unrelated to the sacrament of marriage.

A friend of mine last night was talking about how she tries to watch BBC news now because the U.S. Hollywood drama doesn't make the cut ... no Britney Spears, no Lindsey Lohan.  I might have to check that out.  As someone who doesn't watch TV, I could really care less about which celebrity married who.

Our housewarming party, August 2009
