think.

thankful thursday.
okay, okay, i know it's friday. but it's the thought that counts, right? i was so busy feeling thankful yesterday that i didn't have time to tell you about it....

last night i was lulled to sleep by the soft ripple of a nearby stream. i dreamt of crystal clear glasses, smooth clean plates, and a land-fill containing mountains of yellow rubber gloves. i was awakened by a soft green glow.
i'm thankful to say: my dreams came true!

i am a very lucky girl. and, as a result, let's just say mr.a is getting his fair share of luck, too.*

a little backstory:  because washing dishes is one of my most-hated jobs (along with putting away laundry, cleaning the floors and well, most housekeeping), mr.a offered to get me a dishwasher. but as with most old homes, whenever we start one project, it leads to at least four more. knowing we were going to be messing with the kitchen, we thought it'd be nice to replace the purple (yes, purple) laminate countertops. since we didn't have the time or money to do a complete remodel we just picked out a nicer-looking laminate. then i found this faucet set at tuesday morning for $100 marked down from $500 (!!!) and mr.a thought it'd be nice to get a new sink.
after all that mr.a added a garbage disposal, too!
yep, we're fancy. welcome to the 21st century, arganbrights.


*guys, the way to a woman's heart is totally through appliances. and maybe flowers to sit on top of said appliances. and maybe a compliment comparing her beauty to said flowers. and....
well, i guess we're complicated. but you knew that.
