What We Did When Our Basement Flooded.





What, were you expecting to see galoshes?
Angry faces and buckets?
Sum pumps and dehumidifiers?
Well, sorry to disappoint!

I'm sure I've mentioned once or twice,
that our basement floods at the slightest hint of precipitation
heavier than say, a drizzle.
So why not make the best of a crummy situation?

Cue champagne and my MIL's amazing
yet super secret chocolate chip cookie recipie.

What basement flood?
It was a Saturday night well spent, indeed.

  7. Our floods a bit from time to time, we just keep everything off the floor and go about our lives. :) I'm glad we went house shopping in the pouring rain though! We saw some catastrophes with 4" standing water!

    PS-those cookies look AMAZING!!!!!
