With special thanks to my inactive lifestyle + love for snack foods

As you may or may not know, Zach and I have been hard at work installing new hard wood floors (and by "Zach and I," I mean just Zach, all by himself, no help at all from me, him working solo, me passing the time by getting my makeup done at Nordstrom to avoid all things work-related). He installed them. And then sanded them. And then sealed them. And then sanded them. And then sealed them. Again.

The Sunday before last was "Sanding Sunday." And for about 6.5 hours we (again, not me) sanded using THE WRONG SANDER. It wasn't nearly heavy enough to really get the job done, despite what the folks at Home Dept would have you believe.

So, when I came home and Zach needed my expert help, I happily obliged. Enjoy the footage of my construction expertise below. We make a great team.

Apparently being "dead weight" is my specialty.

Wow, you are such a good helper. Hopefully you had a big bowl of Mac and Cheese earlier to really help out.

I love that you helped. And I love that you posted a video of your butt. HOT!

I love that you set up your camera and recorded yourselves. I am laughing out loud.

But really, I wish you were sitting in the corner, reading your US Weekly, sipping a glass of iced tea while pointing and yelling (you would have to yell to be heard over the sound of the sander), "you missed a spot sweetie!!"

I had no idea that was the way to sand floors! I am definitely calling you when it's time to sand them down. You are an expert!

Miranda...You are the best sander stander on-er I have seen. maybe you should market your talent to the Home Depot. Way to go!
I can't wait to see the finished product!

Natalie: That is a great idea. Next time, I am totally doing that. Maybe I will even invite you over and we can read US Weekly together.
