Can you guess what's going on? My parents are coming to visit for the first time since we replaced the siding...and...basically, Tavo and I have became crazy HGTV-esque banshees because we are introducing our parents this weekend (and we want to be showered with praise for all our hard work)
So, as its Wednesday night, we're getting down to the last projects. Here is our completed house (my apologies--its dark out!)
Tavo was super busy doing our shelves. We have an odd little alcove in our bedroom, and it just makes more sense to have shelves there than large dressers taking up space in the main part of the room.
Tavo also decided that the huge, homemade bookshelf my old roommate left with me should be moved into our main room. He moved the shelf AND our books!
....and we saw that my old roommate didn't bother to move the shelf when he decided to paint the room...(and we aren't going to paint over it--we both just like it)
And of course, we ate my ALL TIME FAVORITE MEAL EVER...pizza! Our friend, Pepé, came over to work on our ancient desktop--so I set up everything for "make your own pizza station" Which turned out to be a silly waste of time, because everyone wanted EVERY topping. Here's the goods:
Tavo catching me using the "secret ingredient" (kroger crushed tomatoes)
"No babe!! Get a pic of the vegetables!!" (caramelized onions, mushrooms sauteed in wine, green peppers, tomatoes, broccoli, and black olives) mozzarella and fresh grated parmesan waited in the fridge..
I chopped up some garlic for the top...everyone wanted that, too.
