3M - Couples Speak Giveaway

Have you seen this button here and there in the blogging community?  
$5000 Couple Speak DIY Contest
Do you know what it means?  3M is currently running two fun contests!  


Share your "He Says/She Says" The first is a translation sweepstakes with a weekly $250 prize.  To enter, just create your own funny translation (real or fictional) at Frameworks' Facebook page


The second is a video submission contest along the same lines except you submit a video for a chance to win two $5000 prizes!!!  


DIY conversations at our house:


Mr. DIY says:  "Just an idea, just something to consider."  (Proceeds with an idea.)
Mr. DIY means:  "I don't want to do it your way" or "I'd rather it my way".  


My response: "Oh yes, that's an idea."
My meaning:  "Um, no." 


This past weekend, Mr. DIY drilled through the attic wall to the outside to install a vent and having a respirator and protective eye wear was so important!  You'll find a lot of 3M products in the DIY Show Off household.  Enter here for a chance to win the products below.  Must haves for your DIY stash of supplies!

That was fun!

He says: Sure honey. Give me a moment and I'll show you how to use the miter saw.

He means: I can wait her out. She'll move on to the next project and my power tools will be safe, sound and untouched.

I entered the contest..my submission:

She says: Are you sure? I know you work so many hours at your job and you're tired when you get home.

She means: Please, let me pay someone to do this so it doesn't turn into a home improvement mini series that lasts an entire season.
