The Ultimate Brocart

January 30, 2014

In a serious stroke of luck earlier this week the Target barcart I gushed over here was on sale for $90 AND available at the Target store near me. It was like the Target stars aligned just for me so I could get this beautiful construction of metal and most likely bronze spray paint. It is truly a sight to behold.

I love it. It is very simple with clean lines and actually rolls, which came in handy when I used it as a shopping cart to wheel out some other items I picked up from Target as well. People were jealous.

Be prepared for a myriad of detail shots. Wilson and I received a super fancy lens attachment to our — his — camera for our wedding — thanks Chet and Pete! — and I was really getting into taking these pictures like I knew what I was doing. Just call me Anna Leibovitz. No really don’t that’s insulting to her.

I styled the cart using things I had around the house that I thought looked pretty. Shockingly enough, we already had all of that liquor — actually more than that but it wouldn’t fit on the cart. Wilson is an Eagle Scout, so he’s always prepared. Not sure what my excuse is.

That bottle of Veuve is the one Wilson and I drank the night we got engaged. Aw.

During the 1 and a 1/2 inch blizzard yesterday, Wilson and I dipped into that Kahlua and made White Russians. At our house, we use any excuse to party, especially an excuse to drink White Russians.

Now if Wilson was into to styling barcarts, this is the way he would organize it. The ultimate Tar Heel brocart.

Is that #50 I see? Brah this brocart is sweeter than shredding that pow pow.Ā I’m really not sure why I know how to speak bro.

Hello Rameses.

Here is Wilson’s suggestion for the finishing touch on the brocart. I won’t repeat my exact reaction because Wilson told me I need to cool it with blog cursing, but let your imagination run wild. And then times that by 10. And then that’s what I said. Plus a few more choice words.

This brocart is like our marriage — beautiful and worth its weight in gold, supplemented with obnoxious Tar Heel memorabilia that seems to multiply by each passing day. Wilson and I are going to the UNC basketball game this Saturday with some generous friends who offered us free tickets — you know how I feel about free — and I just pray he doesn’t wheel the brocart to the Dean Dome. Please keep your thoughts with me on Saturday.
