Obsessions: 08.10.18

We’re a little late getting this posted, but be sure to check out everything we were loving last week in our And Then We Tried obsessions.


The Teacher’s Pet

If you’re a frequent reader, you know our love of everything true crime. Combo that with podcasts (see all our favorites) and I’m 100% sold. This week I’ve been binging The Teacher’s Pet; a podcast investigating a 36 year old cold case in Australia.

“Chris and Lyn appear to have the perfect marriage. But when Lyn goes missing, dark secrets are buried. This is no fairytale, but a sordid story of strangely close twin brothers, teenage student lovers, and probable murder.”

It is so good! I highly recommend if you’re a true crime fan to give this one a go. Plus the accompanying website has a ton of great content and photos.



coco atwt obsessions

I finally watched the Disney/Pixar movie Coco this week and guys, it’s amazing. The animation and visuals are beautiful and the story itself is way more interesting than I thought it would be. It’s currently streaming on Netflix and I highly recommend checking it out if you have some time.

Wedding Planning, Still

What more is there to say here? I’m now having dreams about seating arrangements and shuttle services. And I’m still over it!

This has been another week of And Then We Tried Obsessions, where we share whatever we’re obsessed with each week. Let us know what you’re obsessed with this week in the comments and if you see anything in the wild that you think we’d be obsessed with, be sure to tag us @andthenwetried or use #ATWTobsessions

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!
