No, no, I'm not having a 5th and Hooper's not having a 4th... The other kind of big announcement!
Drum roll please......
We have an intern!!! And she's the cutest UNCW student ever! She will be following us around; hopefully learning all sorts of cool things. She'll be consulting, shopping and installing with Hooper and I've already had her talking construction and house staging in a few flips. We'll toss in some hand-painted walls and a trip to Market and Laura (that's her name) will be ready for the workforce!!!
Want to see the sweetest thing in the whole wide world?...
when we asked Laura to send us a couple favorite pics she included this one... awwww...
(kind of diggin the orange formica)
Anyhoo, we are beyond happy to have Laura for the semester. She is so fun and when we ride around town with her (in our family cars) guys check us out. (er...um...check her out) Details!

A&H: Do you have the coolest internship ever?
L: I do have the coolest internship and I wouldn't trade it for the world! I really like the fact that all the basic principles and elements of design that I have learned in class are appearing in every session of my internship.
