I LOVE surprises!

I am that child that would NEVER peak in their parents closet searching for Christmas presents. No matter how hard my younger brother tried to twist my arm, I would absolutely NOT give in. From the time I was a little girl, I always LOVED surprises.
My husband is just the opposite. He's the type that loves to get you surprises....but cannot wait to give it to you. Let me give you an example:
Jared: Honey, I got you a surprise today for your birthday!
Me: Oh, how nice!
Jared: Do you want to know what it is?
Me: No, no! I'll wait!
Jared: Do you want to know WHERE I got it?
I think you get the idea.
If you follow me on Twitter, you know that when Lincoln & I came home from Florida, Jared had a little surprise waiting for me. He did the smart thing, and didn't even tell me I was coming home to a surprise...therefore, I'd REALLY be surprised!
When I walked into my house, this is what I saw...

I was trying to find a "before" photo, but of course I couldn't. Jared completely finished this entertainment stand/bookcases while we were away. It was bare wood, and has been for 2 years. It also was never connected. See how it looks like it's all one unit? It originally wasn't. My handyman of a husband bought a piece of wood and connected the two bookcases. He also mounted them to the wall, so they're safe for Lincoln :)

It looks AMAZING. Seriously, these photos don't even do it justice! I love love LOVE it! :)


  1. Love it! What a sweet surprise!

  2. Kristin - It's from a local unfinished wood store, called "Great Wood Furniture." :)
