This Is Why I Love My Husband AND Craigslist...

I love my husband because he is my soul mate, my best friend and my knight in shining armor. I love Craigslist because you can find anything on there.

I have been searching for a butcher block for a few months now and finally found one that was reasonably priced. Woo-hoo! The only problem... it was almost three hours away from us.

We planned on driving out yesterday to get it. But I woke up not feeling all that great. So my sweet hubs brought our dear friend and took the trek to pick her up.

They finally pulled into the driveway around 6pm with her.

She's about 20+ years old and is originally from Lancaster, PA. She has the worn look that I love and she's in great shape! She just needs some TLC.

Unfortunately, someone took the liberty of painting her carved leaf design a shade of green. Yikes. I am going to try my best to remove it and restore her back to the way she was.

So the next time you're looking for that certain something, check out Craiglist. I know it's reputation isn't the best. But if you use your noggin and weed through the crazies, you can find exactly what you're looking for. (Use common sense.)

Now I'm off to clean her up and rub her down with some mineral oil. I think she'll like that.

Happy Monday, everyone!!!

It's beautiful! It looks fabulous in your kitchen. And, your hubby is so sweet to pick it up for you while you were sick...what a sweetie.

Oh, she is beautiful as is. I wouldn't change a thing. Your hubby is one great guy. He and my hubby put the others to shame. Don't they know how hard they make it for the other dudes? xoxo
