Mounted TV and TV Quote Gallery

I am a pretty indecisive person when it comes to home decor. That doesn’t seem like such a bad problem, but I’m very impatient and decisive when I put my mind to something. So, if I decide the TV should be mounted, well, sometimes I wake up on a Saturday morning while Kevin is at work and do it myself.

When we first moved in, we mounted our TV over our fireplace but over time, we realized it was just too high and we didn’t like the way the living room was set up. So we moved the TV to the staircase wall and set it on the TV stand we used in our old apartments. We’ve had the living room set up this way for a long time, but the wall was so bare. I made prints with quotes from some of our favorite TV shows and have had them framed for awhile, but I was trying to figure out how I wanted to arrange them.

Well, I remembered that TV mount that was just collecting dust in the basement and thought we might as well put it to good use. Enter… the newly mounted TV and my new favorite wall in our house!


I’ve been collecting frames over time and finally designed and printed a few of my favorite TV show quotes. “Legend-wait for it-dary” from How I Met Your Mother, “I jump, you jump, Jack” from Gilmore Girls, “Clear Eyes Full Hearts Can’t Lose” from Friday Night Lights and of course, my favorite (and also from our wedding), “You’re my Lobster” from Friends.




I especially love that we now have full capability of turning the TV, which will be pretty key on Thanksgiving when football is on but we’re all eating at the table. 😉



Just an afternoon project, no big deal! <brushes shoulder off>

Second Anniversary Celebration

So. Kevin and I celebrated our two year anniversary…a month ago. Totally meant to write about it but life happened and all of a sudden it’s November 18. Wah! Better late than never, right?

We debated going on a mini vacation again (we did Asheville last year and it was amazing: part I and II), but we are OMGSOCLOSE to paying off our student loans, we wanted to save money and do something more low key. Plus, our anniversary was on a Monday so we didn’t go too cray.


Kev surprised me with flowers at work because #besthusbandever, and it was such a treat. We don’t ever do flowers or surprise gifts, so it was especially exciting to me.


We started the evening at Holy Grale, our favorite local bar. We had a couple IPAs and split their heavenly beer cheese and pretzel. I could have gone home happy from there, but we had reservations at Jack Fry’s.


According to my coworkers, Jack Fry’s is a MUST, so we happy to use our anniversary as an excuse for a fancy night out.


I got a salad and scallop dish, and Kevin got the salmon with some sort of mouthwateringly good sauce. I practically licked the sauce of his plate and he’s still married to me, so I guess I’d consider our marriage a strong one.


It was the perfect Monday night celebrating with my favorite person in the world. Wouldn’t have it any other way!
