    I would choose planning a wedding every.single.time.

    OMG. this is the worst thing ever.

    Who woulda thunk choosing tile - TILE - would be so ridiculously hard.


    I need another vacation!

      ooohhh - home remodeling for me, hands down! i'm so not a planner ... but the 2 homes i've built (or bought, rather, new construction) i've actually had fun. i will say though - it wasn't picking the TILE that got me, it was choosing the color grout that went with that tile! lol

        home remodeling is tough work! we've been at it for months. It's hard to make decisions when you know they'll be around for a while. Or hard when you really want somehting you can't afford/wouldn't put in a starter house - ie glass tile... i want a glass tile bathroom SOOO bad!!

        We just painted the entire house about a month ago. This past weekend we decided we weren't 100% thrilled with it so we're repainting parts...

          Yick, remodeling is not for me.

          The first house I bought I said I would change this or that, but the house wasn't old, so it really didn't need to be replaced (and didn't in 6 years -ha!)

          This house we built and we got everything we wanted.
          We watched them tile, geesh! They did it with such precision!
          Big job since most of the downstairs is tiled.

          I don't envy you my dear!

            I would rather remodel. We are doing a major renovation to the house after the wedding. We are going to be extending the entire back side of the house. It would be so much easier to move, but we live in a great area, and we are not going to find the amount of house we have with the same land for the same price unless we move out to the sticks. I can't wait though! Pete says we'll just move into the camper while the house is getting renovated. LOL!!

                So far, I hate both. LOL!!!

                Brendan and I completely renovated our 75 year old house the first year we bought it. Not fun at all. Way too many decisions to make on EVERYTHING.

                Same goes for wedding planning.

                Let's just say I'm not good at making decisions. YUCK!!!!

                  paul and i plan on redoing our kitchen when we get back from Cyprus - I am so excited! the house is 87 years old, and i think the cabinets are too! though there are brand new, granite countertops ... odd.
