A few days before our actual birthday, my parents had us over for cake, candy, food, & gifts. They left for washington on our birthday so we celebrated early which is fine by me!
on our actual bday, magno got us these cute cards:) he got annie a bath and body works gift card & me, my fave-cold hard cash and a promise that he'd take me shopping with NO complaining!!=)
that weekend we didnt do anything but MOVE, unpack,& clean! excecpt for sunday when i took a little break to go to Magno's boss' wife Cara's baby shower! that was a mouthful. She's having a little girl named kiley elizabeth pate & im sure she will be just the cutest little thing. She will be here mid march:)
on valentines day magno had to wake up really early and be at work for a guest speaker, so that didnt start the day off that great...then he got sick as the day went on, and i had such bad cramps that i was throwing up all morning and couldnt leave my bed...it was just a mess. he ended up coming home early and when he walked in he was carrying beautiful roses that had been delivered earlier that day but i didnt notice! He wrote such a sweet card for me & of course got me chocolates too! we were both sick but i didnt really care since that was the only way i woulda been able to spend valentines day with him!
today we are both still sick but we're managing.
ok on to some apartment progress. heres the hideous 70's kitchen before.
The living room before was just a mess. GREEN, old carpet, just so awful. Since its a fairly small area it was really cheap to put laminate down & it was so worth it! we also painted the walls & tore up the brown baseboards so we could paint them white & re-attach them.
heres the living room now....still need to add the baseboards, wall decor, & a few last touches but its so much better now!
the 2 bedrooms & backyard arent camera ready just yet but should be in the next post:)
