Renovation Roadtrip! (AKA: We love Meryl and Chris)

Shaun and I got a real treat yesterday at 6pm when the amazing, handy, and incredibly likeable Meryl and Chris from Picardy Project brought their Renovation Roadtrip to our door.  Meryl instantly hugged me and then carried Ashford all over the house, and I didn't even get a picture of it.  I also didn't make her change his diaper like I promised, but he didn't poop while they were here, so what was the point?  People, these two are so cool.  They have all these fabulous tools and are really good at life.  Do you need a drill bit?  Covered. 
How about an extra long bit that fits in weird places?  They have that. 
Do you need someone, read directions?  Got it.  
Do you want someone to lay on your kitchen floor and use fancy tools on your cabinet toe-kick?  Done.  
Do you have outlets and switches that have needed switch plate covers for say, 9 months?  They are on it!
I cannot express how much fun we had and what a delight it was to have these two in our home for almost 24 hours.  I will be sharing our projects soon, but in the meantime, here is a group shot where it's apparent I am glowing from having my baby at grandma's for the day getting lots of annoying projects done.  I even stuck my foot in the air with glee!
Stay tuned for all the details!


  1. I'm so excited to see what went down. And I'm also equal parts jealous and happy for you. ;)

  2. Post excited.

  3. Can't wait to see all the details! And I agree with Kim...a day with the baby at grandma's and two extra able hands for projects sounds heavenly!

  4. So awesome!! Send them here next please :)

  5. I already miss Ashford. Sigh.... :) And I miss you guys too :) Though I know one thing you REALLY wish we did that we didn't: steal your cats ;)


Thanks so much for reading....your comments mean a lot to me!
