Mandi, oh Mandi with an 'i' at the end of your name
You are so awesome and no one is to blame.
Mandi, oh Mandi you have to stay up late
to get your stuff on Nate (Berkus, that is).
Mandi, oh Mandi you can turn something made of plastic,
that can only be described as "craptastic".
Mandi, oh Mandi there are no ifs, ans, or buts
we will always 'love your guts'!!
Why, you ask, did I just write a fabulous ode to someone I have never even met?
For this, of course!!!
For this, of course!!!
So, here are my reasons that Mandi has to come to my house:
She can feed him ice cubes. And, his mouth is so big that he can hold things for her. He will even pick something up and hold it in his mouth before she even asks him to.
2. My kids
My son is 8 and loves to paint. And my daughter is 10 and a half, and is already finding her style.
3. Thrift stores
Because I live in the Salt Lake valley, we have many options to choose from. Within 20 miles from my home there are 12 DI's, 4 Savers, an IKEA, 7 Salvation Armys, and Restore (leftover home items from Habitat for Humanity builds). Not to mention all the fabulous garage sales that will be happening in June!!
My hubby has a plethora of tools at her disposal: Table/chop/circular saws, brad nailer-with air compressor, power drills-both plugged and cordless, and a hand sander (which is actually mine).
5. My Great Room
and, speaking of catchalls. This photo is meant to be blurry. This is right outside our laundry room and it becomes the landing for all our laundry-clean, of course. I would love some kind of console, buffet, something there for our church bags, resuable shopping bags, or anything else we can't find a home for.
And, 6. Crap that is begging to be redone
yes, I have started hoarding lamps. I love this set and I want to put it on the old window sofa table under the large family photo.
and, apparently our table isn't inspiring enough to take our easter baskets off to sit down and eat dinner. Actually, we eat Sunday dinner here and spend the rest of the week in our awesome basement.
So, please find it in your heart to vote for me-or you can do it for Porter in the above picture. Have your mom, sister, bff, dog, guinea pig and chicken vote as well. I will keep my promise if I win to have a fabulous reveal party at my home with all the Mandi-ness craptastic style you can handle!!
