Last Saturday was a real treat...my mom, Mrs. Designer Extradonnaire, visited Mr. Big and I on the island to see how the house was progressing. We spent two days visualizing, explaining, imagining the house as a finished product. But the best part was yet to come. On Tuesday we boarded a plane to fly to Orlando for two days followed by a trip to New York for four days. Yes, we were let loose with a credit card in hand. I'm fairly certain Mr. Big has been taking deep breaths each time he sees my number roll up on his cell phone over the past week.
Truth be told, we have not gone entirely hog wild. It's been relatively tame. We've had the time to see what is in the stores, browse bolts of upholstery fabric, and confirm (or unconfirm) choices previously made sight-unseen. But we haven't actually pulled out the cash or credit card too often.
The next few posts will take us through what we found as it's too much to put into one post. We've honestly been shopping (i.e. hunting) for no less than 6-8 hours a day. Fun, fun, fun!
