Weekend in Review

We had a great weekend! We met up with friends at a county fair on Friday night. Saturday morning I attended a lovely bridal shower for a friend whose wedding is coming up in August. That night we met my parents for dinner and (finally!) had an opportunity to show my dad our new house. On Sunday, we made a trip to Lowe's to pick up some material to fill the nail holes in our apartment and then checked out home maintenance books at Barnes and Noble. Sunday night we met up with some of my college friends at the Happy Gnome to celebrate a newly minted DDS degree.

Any recommendations for home maintenance books? I picked up the Reader's Digest Complete Do-It-Yourself Manual from the local library this morning. We want to look all of our options over before we invest in something to add to our personal library. Send us your recommendations!

  1. The 1-2-3 series from Home Depot is pretty good. I haven't looked at the comprehensive Home Improvement book, but the Wiring 1-2-3 book has been referenced at my house many times, and we also own the Decks 1-2-3 book. We also stole many tips from the Tiling 1-2-3 book on our many visits to buy tiling supplies during the bathroom project. I think our best home improvement resource, though, has been a cell phone. Thank God for dads who know stuff.
