I have about a bazillion and seven things that I could post about tonight. But, I'm super sick of writing listy-like posts, so I think I'm going to tell you all about the *free* marriage "retreat" B and I had this weekend.
Also known as: we installed a new glass door together yesterday. From 2pm to 10pm. And, it technically cost $102.82, but I'm going to nix that cost since we provided the labor ourselves (which would have started at $99 if Home Depot installed it). So, free. Right?
Anyway, I use the term retreat loosely because it didn't feel very retreaty when I had to walk inside and leave B outside reading about the dang hinge side of the Z-bar because otherwise we were going to cause a dang scene standing on the deck "discussing" it. And when we were discussing it, I can promise you that words like dang and gee golly were not our choice words. Especially when we realized we installed the stupid hinge side of the Z-bar on the wrong dang side.
It wasn't our best moment.
However, the retreaty part of the whole process was that we spent 8 straight hours together, in the sun, working together to accomplish something. And we came out stronger in the end. I may have asked for several corny high-fives and maybe even a chest-bump after we finished. Because it felt 12 kinds of awesome to walk in and out of that door knowing that we, Super B & Super Abby, installed that bad boy ourselves.
Take that hinge side Z-bar. *chest bump*
I have no picture of this feat, but what I do have is my new hair. My new pink hair. Because I thought it would be totally fun to have a little pink hair mixed in on the underside of my regular highlight for this summer. I kinda love it.

Happy, happy Monday. From your resident Jem and the Holograms blogger ;)
