This weekend, my home will be filled with guys toting laptops and notebooks, their heads filled with rankings, rushing yards and injury reports.
See, the Mr. serves as commissioner of a fantasy football team and Saturday is draft day. It’s also his birthday eve, so the yearly event also serves as a birthday gathering of sorts.
In preparation for the event, we spent last night getting to a stopping point on the kitchen remodel so we could put most of the cabinet’s contents back in their places and have a usable kitchen. So far, we’ve stripped and sanded the top level of cabinets. When we quit last night, it looked like this:
Once the weekend’s events are over, we’ll start stripping and sanding the lower level cabinets. Once we’ve made sure they all match, we’ll stain them. (If we run into a snag and they don’t match, we’ll paint.) Next, it’s on to paint the countertops — goodbye, green! — and walls and re-grout the tile.
Tonight, the cooking begins. The Mr. will be smoking a brisket (post to come) while I’ll be baking his birthday cake, these brownies and making my homemade salsa.
What are you all up to this weekend?
