After a weekend filled with 3 parties and one invitation only sale (which we went to because they fed us) and a day filled with DIY renovations we’re back.
Yes we managed to remove a bathroom vanity in one bathroom and replace a toilet in another and no, we didn’t kill each other, we’re still married, and we didn’t even cause any real destruction along the way.

The show has announced that they won’t be airing footing of them loosing their cannonball…
