My amazing hubby!

My wonderful Hubby has given me an awesome early birthday present! He put in a LOT of hard work this last weekend, and he did it all for ME!
I had bought a "new" bathroom vanity and sink off of craig's list a while back and we've been meaning to get it installed (our old one was the original crap from when the house was built back in 1968... and it wasn't pretty or functional.)
It was a long and arduous task but David was determined to get it all done in one day... and he did! He faced rusted and broken pipes, leaking fittings from the second-hand sink, pipes in need of shut-off valves, and a multitude of other annoyances. But in the end he got it all put together and working (totally leak-free and no worries about the plumbing!) and it looks a thousand times better than the old one! And he did all this with no real plumbing experience! Isn't he incredible??!!

We're still nowhere near done with the renovations in this bathroom (you'll know what I mean if you ever come use it!) but we've made a good start and it's looking better already! Oh.. and he also bought a neat exhaust fan to be installed "some day" soon! (We'll have to get a bit of professional help with the wiring on that one!)
So Happy Birthday to me!! This is one of the best presents I've gotten in years!! (Yes, I'm weird.. I really love getting home improvement stuff as a present!!)

Ha! I was ready to type and read Cassie's comment...that is what I was going to say! You shouldn't post that your husband worked all that plumbing because now he has experience and we won't forget it ;)
You are SO NOT wierd! Last year for Mother's Day I got a new bathroom cabinet and mirror...I love those type of gifts!

Love it! I'd take that any day...but we have to have to have a house to put it in. Now THAT would be one great birthday present!

You are a blessed woman to have such a terrific husband. (But you know that already!). IT looks Great! We have a mess going on in our shower, think he wants another challenge?

I've also got a bathroom that needs a little work. When he finishes at the Cruze's, send him over to our house.
