helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

We bought the bookshelves. They look pretty snazzy if I do say so myself. What can I say the hubby got a little early Christmas bonus and we really needed something to house all our books and DVDs and picture frames that have been sitting in boxes in our living room. Did I mention that our house came pre-wired with surround sound? SWEETNESS.

There are a few telling things about this photo that you might notice…

A. As you can see our clock and plate rack and other stuff is still sitting in the left corner. Operation: Hang Stuff Up has been a big ol’ FAIL.

B. There is a yoga mat and weights in the right corner… and they never get used.

C. Yes, that is a pepper grinder in the middle of the bottom of the photo. We are one of those couples who eats dinner in front of the tv. :)

D. The candy dish next to the pepper grinder is full of butterscotch buttons- leftover candy buffet candy from our wedding. OMG. It’s okay though because it’s all individually wrapped… right?
