My Memorable Valentines Day

I hope everyones Valentines Day was better than mine. This years will always be a memorable one but not for a fun reason. I woke up around my usual time (7:30ish) and about an hour later my cleaning ladies arrived. While they were cleaning upstairs, Marta came down to tell me my toilet was stopped up. I thought that was really weird since nobody ever uses the bathroom upstairs. I went into the bathroom to check it out and it was doing something really funny so I decided to find my phone and call Scott and ask him what to do. As I was wondering around my house I noticed a strange sound coming from my living room. So I looked up at the ceiling and after about 10 seconds of starring at it with a puzzled look on my face the flood gates opened and water was pouring out everywhere!!!!!!
I immediately started moving my furniture out of the way so it wouldn't get wet then called my husband to let him know that our living room had turned into a rainforest.
Once I hung up with Scott I called one of the builders in a panic and told him what was going on. He was over here shortly after and brought a bunch of plumbers with him. Two hours later the storm passed and we have zero idea why that happened. Clearly it has something to do with the plumbing on our less than one year old house. They cleaned the pipes out really good so hopefully my house won't rain again. I never thought I'd ever say that.
After the rain went away everyone got me paranoid that my house was going to catch on fire so I had the builder send over the electrician to give me a peace of mind. (Thank goodness for brand new neighborhoods where sub-contractors are always a few houses down) If you want to find the silver lining in any of this I've really wanted a new outlet installed in this one spot in my living room so he put one in for me while he was here. Woo Hoo!
Another silver lining is that Madison thought the rain was way fun so......yeah......she's crazy.

After the disaster was over I had lunch with Jaclyn at McAlisters. Then I decided Scott wanted to get me a shampoo/style for Valentines Day so I hopped on over to an Aveda salon and got a great blowout!! I'm very picky about how my hair gets styled and almost never like the way anyone ever does it but this girl did an amazing job. I'm definitely going to go back to see her more often when I feel like splurging!! I never splurge on hair stuff since I can easily do it on my own but it's nice to get pampered every now and then.

Scott and I didn't make any big plans for Valentines Day. We ordered a pizza and watched TV in bed. We can't turn on the television in our living room for 48 hours. Talk about torture.

So that was my day yesterday. Cool huh.


  1. I can't help but laugh at the visual of you staring at the ceiling when the rain started!! But I'm truly sorry about that. Yuck!!

  2. Raining inside the house doesn't sound cool to me either! From the way you described it, I can only imagine major leaks that were disastrous! Be thankful that your husband and the plumbers acted on it right away and repaired the problem. Next time, do check your plumbing system once in a while and see if everything is still in good condition.
