Underestimating My Hubby

I was gone for 4 days this weekend and didn't know what to expect when I got home. You see, my husband has never been alone in the new house with both dogs.

I did laundry, dishes, and left him leftovers, expecting him to play videogames in his underwear the whole weekend.

But, he surprised me. He:
-Cleaned any doggy presents from the yard
-Hung master bathroom fixtures
-Spray painted and hung the mirror we bought for our guestbath
-Replaced our light fixture in the guest bath
-Took both dogs to the vet

I was impressed. When I asked him how we figured out how to replace the light fixture without electricuting himself he answered:

"Because I'm a man. It's instinct."

What do you think? The mirror was $29.99 on clearance from HomeGoods. It was brushed silver but pops with a glossy black spray paint. The light fixture is from Lowe's, and the square bathroom fixtures are from Target.

I now need some sort of black and white damask shower curtain, maybe some zebra accent washclothes and handtowels, and to hang my Marilyn Monroe picture.

My only complaint was that he didn't take ANY before pictures...


  1. I just bought the same light fixture for my half bath! Mine is the two light instead of the three light and the glass is different, but the base...exactly the same! Too funny. It's a great price too, huh? Love it!

  2. I just went to Target yesterday and saw a black and white damask shower curtain and zebra washcloths and hand towels.

  3. Do you have any suggestions on stores or sites that has great bathroom accessories? I want something trendy and unique but at a loss for ideas. Thanks!

  4. Jamie, I love Target and HomeGoods for bathroom accessories. And I just discovered West Elm's organic cotton towels. Heavenly.
