I usually don't write recaps of the weekend if it's just us hangin' out at home but I wanted to share a HUGE downsize in our move towards a more simple life...
The Entertainment Center.
Ok... this big bad bitch has to be the biggest entertainment center I have ever seen... and bout 7 years ago... I purchased this beast for a STUPID reason (you know... "spend $3000 and have NO PAYMENT for 6 months and LOW LOW LOW financing" crap.) It has had 2 places in our house.... it has been moved only twice and the last time it was moved was 5 years ago... the thing is just TOO huge to move!!! It also dwarfed the beautiful fireplace and I was worried it wouldn't support the weight of the TV John brought over. It was just ONE BIG PROBLEM all around!
(sorry... I just love this picture... he looks like such a freakin' rag-a-muffin here.. one skate, hole in sock, no pants, helmet... how could you NOT giggle???? ;-)
Well this weekend we tackled the project of taking down and rearranging the room (ok... well John did bout 80%... I was more of the cleaning and directing crew so to speak...)
Now... isn't this soooo much better???
(pardon the gross wall behind... these 2 rooms still need a remodel... when we have the $dough$)
And I think it really makes the fireplace (which I LOVE LOVE LOVE) more of the focus in the room....
