James, I think AT has been totally taken over by homeowners.


Living in an Apartment Means Never Having to Do Anything

I get why you don't like it. I needed to install a bookshelf for extra storage in my old place because of the pedestal sink.

But in our new place we have old bulky MDF cabinets that suck just as much. They are disintegrating near the floor where they came in contact with water. And despite being three feet wide, they have only two six inch wide drawers. Not at all useful for all the hand lotions, eye drops, face creams we have. It's a nightmare to find anything!

Now this is a renovation that deserves one of those " you won't believe this" headlines. Bravo!

I would love to see a video of people who have made the starch and fabric technique work. I swear it's impossible! Glue sounds like it would work better, but you are going to hate the cleanup in two years.

Exactly my thoughts Virginia! If I have to share a room with my hubs, why should the kids each have their own space? Preps them for the real world where they will have plenty of roommates.

I don't know about show stopper exactly, but Alton Brown's peanut butter pie is my go-to, everyone gasps in ecstasy desert. It's like a Reece's Peanut butter cup, only in pie form: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/peanut-butter-pie-recipe/index.html

Now that is a teeny space with charm. And the view is crazy beautiful. Almost as nice as my best dorm views from my college days in Boston: of the Boston Commons and the gold-domed state house and the Charles River, complete with the train traveling over the Longfellow Bridge and the sailboats.

I love that mossy effect happening on the trees. But you really love cinder block walls? The painted portion is cool, but the rest are kind of....meh.

Frothy milk? This is a thing? How did I not know that?

Oh no Samantha....don't do it! My wedding was about two-thirds out of town guests, so I invited everyone over the afternoon following the event for leftover cake. It was too stressful! I was exhausted from the day before and the house was a mess with presents and other junk. If you can manage it -- have someone else host!


What Are Some Make-Ahead Dishes for Our Post-Wedding Brunch? Good Questions

Did anyone have an issue with the bread crumbs being too dry? The dish was yummy, but my husband didn't like what he called the sandiness of it. I'll add more olive oil next time, but I wonder if I should just cut back on the bread crumbs.

My good friends always know who they are: the ones who are invited over when the house is a mess and there are dishes in the sink!

That said, I second the cat box/bathroom cleaning comments. Anything less is just rude.
