May Superlatives

Note: This is a retroactive post that I cobbled together in December of 2011 so I could make this page full of monthly recaps for the entire year (our first in our new house!). Yup, I’m just a bit type A. So here’s what we tackled throughout the month of May – high school yearbook style.

Most Improved: Organizing The Insanely Cluttered “Playroom” (more like “disaster area”).

Biggest Procrastinator: Painting The Dining Room (after living with swatches for five months)

Most Repetitive: Mounting Prints On Canvases (Not Once But Twice)

Most Outdoorsy: Sketched Up An Outdoor “Floor Plan” (not to scale though – oops – the house is way too big & our almost-acre lot is too small)

Most Domestic (Runner Up): Making A Festive Table Runner With Clara’s Weekly Fabrics

Miss Congeniality: Clara’s Photo Project (which we opted to continue on a monthly basis with a few tweaks)

Most Artistic: Painting Some Geometric Prism-ish Art (with a few test pots of paint and a clearance canvas)

Most Shy: Installing A Privacy Fence For The Freshly Finished Patio

Most Likely To Result In Goldfish Crackers Everywhere: Making A Pull Swing Piñata For Clara’s First Birthday Party

Most Shrinkage: Slipcovering Our Craigslist Dining Chairs (thanks to some lucky washing)

Biggest Party Girl: Throwing A Big Ol’ House Party For Clara’s First Birthday

Most Sentimental: Making A Video Of Clara’s First Year

Most Glamorous: Updating You Guys On Our Cloth Diapering Adventures

Most Type-A: Our Admittedly Insane Whole-House To-Do List

Best Feeling Ever: Completing The Cobblestone Patio That We Laid Ourselves (woot!)

Most Unexpected: Becoming Possessed And Sewing A Birthday Quilt For The Bean

Most Calculating: Digging Out And Laying The Foundation For Our New Patio

Most Annoying: Fixing A Pesky Broken Light

Most Sinister: Doing Some Pretty Involved (And Unexpected) Patio Demo (just look at that ominous blue glove)

Most Detail Oriented (Slash Neurotic): Painting Our Add-On Bed Finials To Match Our “Ikea White” Bed

Best Break Up: Completely Breaking The Patio Budget (& doing our best to embrace the imperfection of it all)
