Tall, Dark, and Handsome

Today is our anniversary.

Every year, per his request, Roger gets the latest edition of this.

I basically just get something and say, "By the way, that's my anniversary present" so as to remove any guilt or curb the inevitable why-do-you-need-that conversation (ukuleles, anyone?).

Although I have to admit that after 17 years, my man is fully trained. I can't remember the last time I had to explain anything.

(Did I say trained? I meant tired of trying to understand.)

All of this to say I've got a new project.

I talked the lady on Craigslist down to $75.
He's a total hunk, but it's obvious that the top and bottom don't even match.
Nothing a coat of (yellow??) paint can't fix.

Once I take care of those striped walls.

P.S I just did a quick google search and the gift for 17 years?? 
Furniture.
I always knew we were traditional.
