Easter Detox, Clogged Sinks and Outdoor Furniture

How’s that for a crazy blog post title?

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend.  I’m currently detoxing from all of the delicious Reese Eggs, jelly beans and M&M’s meals, and in my zest to “eat clean”, I went to the grocery today and loaded up on good (for you) foods.  I also detoxed cleaned out my fridge, putting my garbage disposal to work.  And in my haste, I managed to clog our kitchen sink.  As in my double kitchen sink.  Clogged both sides.  Don’t ask me how I did it – a magician never reveals her secrets you know.

I should have just stuck to junk food.  See where “eating clean” gets me?  It gets me a digusting mess is what it gets me…

But, on a decorating note, I came home from the grocery store to this:

That would be the outdoor furniture we bought ala Joss & Main.  And after an hour+ of toiling away (by my husband, in between trying to unclog the sink), we have this:

Only three more chairs and a loveseat to assemble.  It’s a good thing he’s off work for the next few days since the kids are on Spring Break.  He’s going to be a busy bee. 😉

    You sure are having some home repair issues over there. And I thought old houses were the big problem. ha. Love your outdoor furniture.

    It seems that all the stuff are new even though they are a year old furniture.

    You’re the new DIY couple of the year Jenny, for unclogging your sink. LOL. Well it cracks me up, seriously! By the way, that wicker chair is so beautiful. I wish we can buy one for our townhouse someday.

    Great read. That part about the double kitchen sink is tough. I'm sure that's all been dealt with properly at this point, so I hope there isn't any repeat of that kind of clogging in the future. Not that anyone would be helpless to mend it at this point, since services that exclusively deal with those things are easily available.
