No, not together. That would be bad.
For Bear’s birthday, I surprised him (along with some good friends) with a day of brewery tastings!
He had a great time and was properly drunk by 3 pm. As it should be.
But we’re not done yet..that was just his present. For his celebration we’re having a fun birthday BBQ, complete with a vodka spiked watermelon and margarita machine! We’re joining forces with Andrea for her birthday…can’t wait!
In the meantime we have been charging ahead at the house. Both the garage there and at my parents’ place is stacked to the brim with new and old goodies. We’ve been thrifting and shopping and garage sale-ing for furniture and decor. We’ve also got all new fixtures and lights. The painting is now done! The carpet upstairs is now done! The tiles are now installed! The cabinets and countertops should be finished by tomorrow and the flooring should be done by next week before the appliances arrive. Then we start filling ‘er up…
I think I’ll do a huge before and after once it’s all decorated but for now here are some of the paint and flooring (and new fans!):
Master Bedroom and Bathroom – walls are painted a yellow color that took us forever to choose and then the ceilings are the same color cut with white so they are lighter and make everything look bigger:
Guest Bedroom – love the soft green stripes:
Game Room – had to have that red somewhere in the house (it’s been an accent wall in every place I’ve lived after moving out):
Still have to post the painting job in the office and all the cabinets…as well as the floors. Will update again soon!
