End of Break

Good day readers! I’m sorry to have deserted you for so long, but sometimes I need a break from the computer so thanks for bearing with me.

Our weekend consisted of a lot of driving, a gorgeous wedding, family time, husband and wife time, chandelier building, arguing while building a chandelier, deciding that marriage is more important than DIY projects, and making up over a cocktail and a romantic comedy.

I’ll share the bubble chandelier story and photos as soon as I’ve reached a more stable emotional state, but for now, here are a few shots from the wedding we attended on Friday. It was a traditional Persian ceremony with the most beautiful sofreh aghd I’ve seen. The bride (my friend) was stunning in lace and the reception (held at The London in LA) was posh as hell. Thank God I’m already married so I can be free from the burden of living up to this wedding.

FYI…the really tall, handsome, bearded guy is the Husband and the not so tall, handsome one is my brother!

My weekend was extraordinarily wholesome. Fresh pasta, smoked gruyere and an early bedtime on Friday night (the Husband participated in his first cycling race at the crack of dawn on Saturday so carbs and sleep were essential). 

Converse sneakers, a bar and grill and a baseball game on Saturday.

And a trip to Ace Hardware on Sunday followed by an attempt  to make the bubble chandelier. I even laid out all the materials and tried to hype myself up with a glass of wine, but then I got distracted so there was little progress. In all honestly, the Husband really wasn’t in the mood for a DIY lighting project so we compromised. I attended a sporting event for his sake and he doesn’t have to make the chandelier until next weekend. See, I’m a selfless wife.

I waited three months for the Husband’s semester to end so he can help me make this bubble chandie for my dining room. He’s refusing since this is his first free weekend in ages and he doesn’t want to spend it doing house projects. Me threatening to electrocute myself isn’t working so I thought if I put his refusal out in the public sphere it might persuade him to help a girl out.

Wish me luck. Especially you Ms. Modern 24/7 who encouraged this DIY project. If we fail, Elizabeth, I’m flying you to California to put the pieces back together.
