Test Title 1

weekend update: kitchen built-ins

remember how not one but two of our plates fell and broke?

a recap: i wanted to display our dishes on the built-ins in the kitchen. so i found self-adhesive vinyl foam weatherstripping at ace hardware and went to town. and the cabinets have looked beautiful since sept! then when wade and i returned home after the holidays - we found that the adhesive didn't keep in the cold - and we had 2 broken dishes (thankfully - just 2). "weatherstripping" apparently doesn't mean "weatherproof".

to be honest, i was disappointed and a bit defeated. we have such limited cabinet space. the dishes sat stacked on our washer/dryer all week while we considered our options. a little proof of our lack of space:

{our ghetto dishwasher ...}

{... has been re-purposed as a storage cabinet}

our mission this past weekend - to find a fix & still use the built-ins.

the culprit - this NOT weather-proof foam:

the solution - little square dowel rods, three nails each dowel and a can of paint:

and now my babies are safe again!

thanks to my live-in handyman!

we also squeezed in:
* a trip to the nashville bead show with taylor
* a hair cut
* a few humphrey bogart films from the collection i bought wade for christmas †
* a hike at edwin warner park
* dinner with matt and jana
* dinner with whitney and sean
* a date night at yellow porch (yum!)
* a calvin house meeting
* church
* sam's with jason and the boys
* 2 movies (true grit - excellent + the dilemma - eh.)
* laundry
... and *2 crafts

shouldn't every weekend be a 3-day weekend!?!

† i'm thinking a new blog category called "HUMP DAY" which would include movie reviews of the latest humphrey bogart film wade and i have seen. hee hee. okay maybe not.
