This past extra long weekend (Thursday - Tuesday), my family enjoyed a trip back home to Philly/New Jersey for my cousin's wedding. Since Chris recently started his new job, he wasn't able to make the trip with us so he had 6 days to himself at home.

While I was enjoying reliving memories of my youth, Chris was busy knocking out project after project in our home. First up was mounting the TV in our bedroom.
We've had the TV on the floor for some time, waiting for our handyman to come mount it and hide the cords behind the wall. Well our handyman has been very busy with his main job, so Chris opted to just mount it himself and build a shelf to hold the cable box. Now I can actually watch tv in bed instead of on the floor! We'll get around to hiding the cords later.
Chris has been the king of shelving lately. Last time it was creating the linen closet, this time it was building shelves in his gameroom for our DVDs and his video games.
Similar to the linen closet, Chris used a track system so we could alter the heights of the shelves if we need to. He cut and painted wood and attached little blocks to the ends to hold the DVDs in.
Me being the type A personality, I went ahead and alphabetized the DVDs then loaded up the shelves. While going through them, I noticed that there are a lot that that we should probably get rid of because we never watch them (as in still in the plastic from when they were purchased).
On the other side of the room Chris created a wrap around system to utilize the corner bump out.
Looking at this picture one might think we were starting up a GameStop!
I have no doubt these shelves will fill up once we unpack the rest of his graphic novels and other decor items. Mario says Yippee!!
And the last project was a complete shock to me! We were texting Sunday night and Chris asked if I wanted to see his hair cut. I thought this was a little odd because Chris tends to get the same haircut, only once during the summer he surprised me by coming back with a shaved head. So I'm thinking he's done something cray cray to his hair.
Nope, same haircut, but one huge surprise behind him - he painted our master bath!!
After 5 hours of painting the nooks and crannies of the master bath, Chris is truly looking forward to a relaxing weekend this upcoming weekend. With all of the projects he has completed lately, I have no issues with a veg out weekend!
