Floor Mat Repair: The Neon Edition


I know what you are thinking. Has it come to this? Are you really duct-taping the floor?

Yes. Why, yes, I am. If Kate Spade can do it so can I. I’m cheap and I’m not in the market to buy a new rug for my dining room floor. The wood strips were starting to pull up from me moving my heavy Ikea dining room table around so much and I’m tired of getting splinters in my feet.  So I’m taping up this old wooden mat thing that my neighbor got out of the trash for me. We’re classy like that here in Apartmentland. Just like Kate Spade.


Neon duct tape is where it’s at.

I don’t know. It’s probably really tacky (ha! I made a joke there) and awful but you know what? I’m a single mom living in an apartment. I’ll just say it’s artistic and let my freak flag fly.

I’m thinking someday when I buy some more groovy duct tape I’ll add more stripes and eventually it will be completely covered. It will be a duct tape mat! Probably the next big thing coming to a Pinterest board near you!

Mark my words, honey! (said in my best granny voice)


Food Truck Tuuueeeesday!

foodtrucknight1 We’ve been driving by this gathering of food trucks in our neighborhood all summer and finally we decided to check out what all the hype was about. foodtrucknight2 And you know? For a Tuuuuuuuuuesday (sing it like Katy Perry) it ain’t half bad!  There’s a reason people invented Taco Tuesday! foodtrucknight3Bacon on a carne asada taco? Why haven’t I tried that before? Bring it Tuesday!foodtrucknight4

It could be the atmosphere (and the company).  There is something really fun about walking around at sunset in the summertime eating gourmet combinations of foods you’ve never tried before… flip flops everywhere, kids are chill because they’re tired from swimming all day. The sun dips down into the trees and everything just seems allllllllright.

You should check out your food truck night in your town and get back to me on this. Is it hype or is it a thing?  I’m thinking it’s a thing.
