This past Saturday Shawn informed me we needed to run a few errands to "pick a few things up". Because it was sunny and above freezing I decided to get dressed in presentable adult clothing to head out in (this is a rare occurrence as of late). It turns out the errands we were running involved purchasing drywall and sheet rock. Now I'm not sure if you have ever had the joy of purchasing these items, but in case you haven't, allow me to fill you in on a few things. For starters, drywall is incredibly heavy. You will whimper and complain excessively and have a few tears form in your eyeballs while lifting them. Your wrists will also give out multiple times and your husband will not be impressed. Secondly, this sheet rock stuff is very dirty. It's almost like rolling around in a pile of chalk so that's fun. It's especially fun when you are wearing a brand new outfit that you are pretty proud of. Third, in order to haul these items around you will need a large vehicle. Thankfully we had access to a large white van. I am assuming you all know what a large white van makes you look like.
And that my friends, is how to keep the love alive.
Word to the wise -- the next time your partner informs you he has plans for you both on a Saturday, ask questions before committing. A lot of questions.
ps - I have absolutely loved partnering with Sugar Love Boutique over the years on this blog and wear their clothes regularly - they would like to share the love with all of you and give you the chance to win $50 to spend with them. Entries are easy - get crackin' and good luck!
