Hey guys! I missed you yesterday. I had grand plans for a post and Aaron ended up having off Wednesday so we had a busy family day and the post got pushed off. Oh well!
This weekend isn’t too busy of one, which I’m excited for! I hope we can knock some home projects out and make some progress in the kitchen. But for now, let’s talk Friday Favorites. Thanks, Heather, for the link up!
Aaron and I haven’t been out in a while just the two of us. It’s probably been months, and we had some news to celebrate so we decided to head out. Mad Mex opened a location on a lake pretty close to us so we decided to head there last night. We also decided to send Annabelle to my parents for the night since my mom was going to watch her last night and then babysit while I worked today; it just made sense. Since we were kid free, we actually painted the kitchen! I really didn’t want Annabelle around the smell and we felt this was the perfect time to do it.
We shared wings and chips with salsa for apps (half off happy hour!) and then Aaron got a Gobblerito (Thanksgiving stuffed into a burrito basically) while I went with my classic Wing-o-rito. Delicious! Plus I was pretty full by the time it came so I have plenty for lunch today.
It’s painted! I’m not sure if I’ve explained but the kitchen is currently a oak color cabinets and a dark (but not our fav) countertop. We are going with a “Granite” dark black with specks of silver look on the countertops and white cabinets with grey walls. We decided to go with the same color that is in Annabelle’s room because we love how it looks with white.
State of our kitchen last night before painting.
I’m told this will all be done soon, though the way my kitchen looks isn’t suggesting the same thing! I believe the top cabinets are aimed to be painted this weekend, then those will go up and it’s just the countertop, crown molding, and bottom cabinets. Still a lot in my mind
Oh you guys. I’ve had to hold in my excitement but on Monday morning, I woke up to a text my friend Alison had her baby boy! Both are healthy! Then, a few hours later, I found out Emily had her baby boy Bennett, too! He was a few weeks early, and we actually JUST went to her shower on Saturday! We made it in to see Emily, Mike, and Bennett on Tuesday, and A and I went over again yesterday. He is the cutest and so, so tiny. I love him already. No shortage of babies over here. We haven’t made it to see Ethan yet but he is a cute one from the pictures I’ve seen.
When my mom came to get Annabelle yesterday, she brought over a Caramel Chocolate Sarris Bar. I love caramel so this was a nice treat when we were painting last night!
