Obsessions 08.11.17

Robin is still snagging all the shoes in sight and Michelle has been home sick binging some cringe worthy tv. See what we’re loving in this week’s And Then We Tried obsessions.


Twilight Movies

A few weeks ago, I visited my friend Ben in Cincinnati and bullied him into watching Twilight. Well, I’ve been home sick for the past few days and spent yesterday watching New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn: Part One. These movies are awful, but are the perfect thing when you’re sick on the couch!

Dr. Scholl’s Shoes on Amazon

I was just obsessed with pink sneakers last week, but guys, I don’t know when it happened but Dr. Scholl’s has started selling really cute shoes. And now I can’t be stopped. And being that they are Dr. Scholl’s, they are super comfy PLUS I found all the ones I wanted to order on Amazon Prime with free returns. You really can’t lose there. Check out what I ordered below.

Dr. Scholl’s also makes these Meeko Sandals which I kinda love. What a statement shoe. I think they’d be great to wear to a wedding. Haven’t pulled the trigger on these guys yet but if they go on sale I may just have to snag them!

Attaching a wood fence to a chainlink fence

As I mentioned in my last fence/gate update post, I helped Erika attach a wood fence to the chainlink fence in her backyard. The process was similar to when I converted a chainlink fence to a wood fence, except in this case, we left the chainlink fence intact. This method is a good option if you want to add a little more privacy to your yard or camouflage a chainlink fence while you wait to save up for a completely new fence.

Obsessions: 10.19.18

You wanna know what we have been decidedly NOT obsessed with in the past month? The blog. Womp womp. We’re hopping back in this week, but we’ll be posting a bit more sporadically for a while. Here’s hoping you all loved getting caught up on Michelle’s driveway gate plans yesterday. See what else we’ve been obsessed with in this week’s And Then We Tried Obsessions.

Fence Updates and Two-Panel Wood Driveway Gate Plans

Hellooooo, I’m thinking about fences again! You all had the pleasure of following along as I moved and rebuilt the fence in my backyard and then converted a chainlink fence into a wood fence along my driveway, and now it’s finally time to build that driveway gate. Of course, I can’t just build a driveway gate and leave it at that, I’ve also decided to cap the entire fence to cover up the dogear pickets and give everything a cleaner and more finished look. HOORAY!
