Apr 10 You Can’t Always Get What You Want I almost titled this “Stop adding this stuff to your cart Jordan, you can’t ever have it.” We are starting to actually decorate the house (way more fun than redoing the electrical!) But lately I’ve found that I’ll narrow down my lighting options for the dining room and realize none of the tabs open in my browser cost less than $9000. Since when did my taste get so expensive?
