Monday Moment: The best thing

So, like Will Farrel and his new bride in "Old School," the hubby and I had an oh-so-exciting Saturday at the Home Depot this weekend! Yes, new countertops are actually considered a date now. This can seem a bit depressing if one dwells on it.

Well, here's the "the best thing" about our trip. There we are, flanked by orange metal shelving and home-improvement gear, and our first-dance song comes pumping over the loudspeaker: "You Are the Best Thing" by Ray LaMontagne (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJ3xTjvj9tw).

We stop. We look at each other. We smile, and we kind of transport back to the romantic dance floor of Laurel Hall. Giddy giggles and a kiss. Home Depot dates are awesome!


  1. Sarah PA this may be my favorite post yet, you often make me cry but this one made me laugh out loud! Love and Miss you! ~Nikki

  2. How Sweet!!!!! Make the most of every day no matter where the two of you may be. I know your wedding day will always hold many memories. It was such an awesome day! love, Aunt Rachel

  3. someone sounds like a newly-wed! We don't have as much fun in Lowe's or Menard's. I'm usually trying to get him to buy what I want. Maybe I should kiss him more!
