Well, I never really thought I'd say this, but: I played with legos this weekend and I liked it. :)
Andy collects special lego sets - mostly the Architecture series. He told me about a series of lego modular buildings in which they all connect and look like rowhouses. He won me over when I pretended that they were a block in Brooklyn and that we could pretend we lived there. He had enough lego points to get some sets for free so he ordered them up and the first set arrived last week.
I put together the brownstone and he put together the pet shop. Gotta admit, I was envious when I saw the cute things he got to put together for the pet shop and the loft above it. Apparently the brownstone has someone moving in - the second floor has mysterious accessories and the third floor just has legos that are meant to be cardboard boxes! Kinda strange!
BUT, it was really fun to put them together with each other and then take photos of "us" in the buildings. Our friend Emily gave us lego mini-figs that resembled us for our wedding so we've built a hybrid version of us for "normal" lego life in these buidlings.
I love the details - the doors all open and some of the windows do too. There are flowers everywhere and cute surprises like dog bones and letters you can stick in the mailboxes.
It was fun! We are getting the "Grand Emporium" next and it's a huge corner shop that I'm definitely going to research first before choosing which floor I want to make. :) I don't want to miss out on putting together cute things and I definitely don't want to put together empty floors like the brownstone!
Are you a lego fan? Have you ever been surprised by enjoying your significant other's hobby?? I liked it so much more than I expected to!
