Hello, long time no hear from me! We have been super busy, and then went on vacation: We had a blast on our loooong road trip to Washington DC and many points in between. We clocked almost 4,000 miles on the car. A lot of driving but a great vacation was had.
-Trip #1 Highlight: The white beaches, sparkling water and pelicans of the Florida panhandle. Glad we were able to go before the catastrophic oil spill kills it all.
-The Biggest Drag: The vomit stench that permeates the New Orleans French Quarter. Gross.
And even though I have been incommnicado does NOT mean we haven't been busy with more house projects. Here is one of our latest.
Our recently redone office is still a work in progess. We painted the office an almost black super-dark gray color called Sled by Behr. The east wall looked like a boring blank chalkboard and needed some sprucing up. Dan had the brilliant idea of putting up a bunch of his movie posters. Since Dan has been in "the movie business" for a million years he has quite a collection of some pretty cool ones. These have been stored in various poster tubes and boxes for a long time but we decided to release them from captivity. Really, what's the point of having neat stuff if it's not going to be out where we can see just how neat it all is?
Dan ordered 3 poster cases from displays2go.com for around 40 clams each. But, with all the posters already in our possession (free!), and the ease these frames offer in changing out one poster for another on a whim, this is a great deal. We have a permanent-yet-changeable wall of art on the east office wall that adds lots of color and style to the room.
