The Nadalet Family

Welcome to our family, welcome to our blog. We are going to try and keep this current for those of you reading from afar (hey mom claire!) But we make no promises. And really, people don't want constant blog updates until there are kids. So in about 5 years this blog will really start going.

Please enjoy our sporadic posts on life as a married couple

Wine Closet

Would you like to know what happens when you move out of your parents house and they take over your old bedroom?? They turn what used to be a nice little closet for all of your clothes into a wine closet. Seriously? A wine closet?? Not to mention, it is stocked pretty well! haha My parents actually turned my old bedroom into a guest room, once I was married and all. They left the shrine to Megan at peace until I said I do. Mom Claire did a really nice job re-painting it (what? not everyone likes green & blue walls with a yellow ceiling?) and refurnishing it - there is now a queen sized bed in there, so 2 people can spend the night! But I did get a kick out of it once I realized the refinished closet (it had 4 doors that opened by folding into themselves, which didn't work as well once the giant bed was in the middle of the room... so they bolted the one closest to the wall into the closet frame & left the other one to open) had been turned into an ebay storage shed & wine closet. haha And yes, that is a wine cooler fridge thingie on the bottom. My dad got some great deal on it from the other Matt, his nephew.

I had no idea you were blogging my life too. Good thing I've gotten over worrying about what my non-drinking friends think of my willingness to imbibe. And, yes, someday you'll get a bedroom back and have fun reconnecting with it. Remember, I had it first.

At least your parents didn't do what we did after Rob and Liz went to college. We sold our house and moved to another house and their bedrooms in the new house now became ours not theirs. As far as the wine closet, you and Matt need to come to St. Louis to see our wine tasting room.

Your cousin, Beth

That's funny! Next time we venture to St Louis, we will definitely give you a call! Glad to know you read the blog!
