Drinks with Mike & Rach, Home Stuff, Shows

On Friday we had drinks with Mike and Rach, which was awesome of course. As you can see from these pictures Arthur was clearly the life of the party. You will also notice the fabulous Billy and Mike dance party photo. Brilliant. I would bet that the song playing is either Rihanna’s “Umbrella” or a Bon Jovi song.

The plan was to head out, possibly to Hess since it was so lovely out, however Absolut Vodka seemed to have a different plan which involved 2 large pizzas, garlic sticks, and some rather blurred vision.

The Ikea project is complete! After 435756897 hours of labour, we finally have our room set up and finished. After photos will be taken soon, once we have caught up on lost sleep and relinquished some of our fury for the new furniture and its vast array of odd numbered pieces and the 8 or so pieces that remain. It was not fun, but well worth it!

One of the next projects we want to work on is the hallway and office. The rest of the house is pretty good in terms of resale, but we have a feeling the deep red won't go over well, so we're going to go with two neutral shades that both flow with the other colours in the house. That way the new owners will be able to move in and leave everything as is if they want. Here are a few colours we're considering:

We also managed to take a quick break from allen key hell and get on Ticketmaster. This fall we can add these shows to our list:

- Brand New with Thrice
- Hot Hot Heat (!!!)

  1. It looks like you had a great weekend!
    I love the colours you have picked for your hallway and your right one of those shades will be great for resale.

    Can't wait to see the photos of your new bedroom set.

  2. Can't wait to see the new set up. And don't worry, I have bags and bags of all the extra "bits and pieces" from all the Ikea stuff Dad and I have bought over the years. I think they do it on purpose.
