Oh ladies... if you've found yourself wanting a Silhouette Cameo Machine, but haven't quite convinced your husband of "why" you need one, then I may have just found the PERFECT excuse to actually pull the Silhouette out of your online shopping cart, and go to the "checkout!" Gentlemen, if you're reading this... this MAY be the "manliest," thing I ever post about. So enjoy it. ;) Tool Cabinet Organization My husband was...

But... all opinions are mine alone, pinky promise! #SipsOfJoy #CollectiveBias Can you believe my husband and I have lived in our current home, OVER two years? That's never happened. If you've been on our home tour, then you know we move constantly. We build, move-in, sell, repeat. But for some reason, we've hung on to this house a little longer than usual.
