A brief giggle mixed with the stress

Chris never ceases to crack me up, even in the midst of a STRESSFUL first home-buying process that includes finishing a small bathroom before closing on the (dream) house.
Fun to shop? Yes! Hard to resist going over the top? VERY (especially when the rest of the house is so beautiful).

I need your bargain shopping/house closing/bathroom finishing vibes to carry me through the rest of this month.

In the meantime, here's a recent (very typical) Wickstrom exchange. Enjoy!

CHRIS: Dang, can’t we find a towel holder and tissue holder somewhere else?
BECKY: Probably. :(
CHRIS: I’ll help look. The sconces and mirror are noticeably nicer, but unless the towel bar comes encrusted with some bling-bling and the toilet paper dispenser includes an automatic comfort moistener, the price seems a little steep.
BECKY: You’re a party pooper. What is a comfort moistener anyway?!?!
CHRIS: I’m not saying not to get those items, I will just feel seriously ripped off if we do. Like highway-robbery ripped off. I bet the CEO of Restoration Hardware has his “tissue dispenser” stocked with a fresh roll of Benjamins. BTW, a comfort moistener is that spray that you spray on you TP, remember?
BECKY: Good to know.
Project renovate a bathroom/buy a new house without killing each other continues...

You're silly. And for the record, I don't think you said "Good to know" in response to my explanation of the comfort moistener. You said "You're a nerd." Glad you are able to selectively edit yourself for the sake of your blog audience. ;)

I love Restoration Hardware.

I love Chris' explanation of a comfort moistener (and I think I want that).

I love that you're able to get your decorating on in the form of a bathroom reno.

Times...are you reno-ing a bathroom before you sign on the house? That reminds me of the time Drew and I hadn't closed on our house yet, but went to Home Depot nevertheless, and dropped a disgusting amount of cash on things to make our "should-be-house" pretty.
