I feel like this is becoming quite the Tuesday tradition. I do have a valid excuse this week, though. I swear! Joel and I took the day off yesterday to finish up the house to get ready to put it on the market today. The realtor will be by after work for us to take pictures and to get everything ready for the listing. To say I am nervous is an understatement. The market hasn't really rebounded in this area, and we haven't owned the house long to get much equity into it. Fingers crossed for a quick sale!
Last week, I forgot to mention that Joel and I say Il Divo in concert. Don't know who they are? Well, if you are a lover of musical theater, Google them. I don't have enough great things to say. We had total nosebleed seats, but the music was beautiful. We also stopped by Hard Rock on the way there, and I discover that they had margarita flights. The food was sub par, but the drinks? Worth the trip back.
I also had the chance to finally get a picture with an STL Birthday Cake. There are 250 all around the city, and while I have seen plenty, this is the first one I've snagged a picture with. How fun!
I also made a fabulous discovery. Folks, I have found a new favorite beer. For those outside of the Midwest, you may just have to take my word for it. I don't know if you could find it far from this area, as it's made at a local Missouri place. It's called Crown Valley Brewery (they also have a winery), and it's their seasonal ale. Run, don't walk, to get yourself some.
Other than that, it was a lot of cleaning and reorganizing. And I finally got a chance to put down our new rug in the dining room! Ignore the mess behind the table (that's all clean now), but I couldn't be happier with the rug. We bought it from Rugs USA online, and I was nervous buying it sight unseen. I'm a pretty picky person, but I am just so in love with it. I think it really adds a pop of color to the room. Don't you think?
