I’m Pimping My Husband

I have decided to pimp the husband.  Okay, not him literally, but I am going to pimp his design skills.  He created a pretty badass piece of furniture, and it is time to market the ish out of it.  I am introducing to you, my loyal blog followers, the Wheelbarrow Chair!  *eruption of cheers*

Have you ever been to a backyard party and run out of chairs?  After too many drinks in the sun and very tired feet, the husband discovered that sitting in a wheelbarrow with the handles tipped down is pretty damn comfortable.  The following morning with a much clearer head, he thought about his rad chair discovery.  Unfortunately it is pretty ugly in its natural form.  Good thing he like to design furniture! *lightbulb*  Now it is sexy enough for a living room and can even spice up a waiting room.  I initially declared it patio furniture and banned it from the house until I saw the finished product.  Now it is the piece de resistance of our own living room.  I even picked the lovely shade of green, which can be customized to your own favorite color.

Here are the details.   The chair is a wheelbarrow bucket with birch plywood legs and steel bracing. The finish is an automotive grade urethane that is extremely durable. All exposed nuts and bolts are stainless steel.  You get all of this for only $400!  Oh yes, the very low price of $400!  It is almost too good be true.  A custom, handmade chair for only $400!

For inquiries, you can contact his wife.  That would be me.  He doesn’t answer his phone.  Or his email.  It irritates the crap out of me.  Serious inquiries preferred, but I’ll take what I can get.

The husband’s loving wife, Misty

Mustaches and Sequins!

I was itching for another party, but I needed a theme.  How about mustaches and sequins?  They go together so well that they deserve a party!  It was a stache bash!

Some of the men on the invite list were bearded, so all they had to do was trim it into a sexy stache.  Those that were not bearded got 2 weeks notice to man up.  Their other alternative was to wear sequins.  You will see that some did…

The ladies finally had an excuse to wear sequins outside of NYE.  We rocked it like a newly legal 21 year old in Uptown.  A few donned mustaches as well.  Thankfully none were real.

We have committed to another party in June.  I think this one might be a play on corporate America.  Of course costumes will be required.

PS – I will be posting the menu soon!  Homemade marshmallows, marinated mushrooms…nom nom nom.

Pink Elephant Decanter

I have been on the hunt for bad ass decanters.  I want a whole collection and I blame Pinterest for this new desire.  Or maybe the Chesterfield because I adore their old fashioned cocktails.

I found the best one at Canton Trade Days.  Just take a look for yourself.  I know you will be jealous.  The pink elephant decanter and its 4 matching glasses will make its first appearance at a party in a couple weeks. We are hosting a shindig in honor of moustaches and sequins.  There will be more stories to come.  I am sure of that…

NYE Menu

The husband and I had our first NYE party as a married couple.  He swore off hosting NYE events because “everyone else does.”  Well our cooking and parties are a lot better than everyone else’s.  ‘Nuff said.  I complimented his mad kitchen skills (which truly is amazing) and then very little effort was needed to change his mind.  The party was my excuse to use all the serving pieces we got as wedding presents.  I also wanted a short commute to bed.

It was a big success; loads of laughter, music, food, and booze along with 3 very fat and happy dogs.  It was a good party.  Of course I forgot to take pics during the party, but I did take photos documenting the mess around 330 am New Year’s Day.  Champagne makes me creative.

This is absolutely going to be a recurring event.  We are thinking once a quarter.

The party menu

  • Roasted dates with parmesan and bacon
  • Curry chicken salad on crostini
