Banishing the Bachelor

Remember here when I was certifiably insane and I thought I would have say in the decor of my dear manfriend's home?

What was I expecting? Well, obviously to be able to have free reign on all color choices, furniture decisions, accessorizing galore. I've totally done all of that. Falsies. Instead, the man has somehow drugged me and convinced me to paint two bedrooms, one ceiling and rip up a tropical monster tree in the backyard that took all weekend. I really had lovely manly visions for his little man home...

See? Tasty and masculine.

Alas, I've given up on "The Playhouse" as I so lovingly called it. Do you know why? DO YOU? Because there is always that one PAINFUL thing staring back at you that you just cannot convince them to get rid of...


Yes, Vigo. Vigo from Ghostbusters II. A HUGE terrifying image of Vigo that does nothing other than haunt my life and disturb my soul. So, you see, I've lost my lust to play in the playhouse. I'll let the man believe that Vigo is a "statement piece" and in the meantime, I'll keep dreaming of what could have been.


PLEASE share what heinous "statement piece" your significant other cherishes. 
Make me feel better.

  1. You must be kidding. Vigo??? 'Statement piece'?? You must save him from the vigo trance your manfriend is under and get that out! Could you 'accidentally' spray clorox-based cleaner on it? Maybe an animal could use it as a lamp post? Fortunately we've moved enough in the last 8 years that no one has gotten to keep their 'vigo' piece. All I can say is I'm so sorry. That is awful. Here's to hoping the Ghostbusters show up soon. **Megan**

  2. I'm new to your blog and this made me laugh out loud. I grew up with three brothers and I similarly have dreams of creating rooms for my future sons that are a beautiful manly combination of cowboy/prep school/British official in colonial India. I don't have Vigo in my place, just a husband who doesn't care about all the TV, xbox, electronics cords being visible and ugly. Good luck!

  3. Thanks for reading!

    Thankfully, manfriend sees Vigo as a comical statement piece and not something he would prefer to hang over his bed. Hail Mary. He's pretty great about everything else and tends to think I have phenomenal taste. He's a smart man.

    Y'all have a fantastic weekend!
