10 months of fun (and dancing) with this guy has flown by!
Month 10 will go down in history as the month of house projects and big purchases...since we moved in we have had big plans to change each room slowly...but when we got to the basement, we didn't realize what a big undertaking that would be.
In the moment, it was a tad over-whelming, and AJ and I might have gone a few days without exchanging any kind words with each other...but boy was it worth it!
We pre-gamed at our favorite Friday night spot...Mi Ranchito :)
And by pre-gaming...I mean we had a margarita before hitting up Home Depot top pick out paint...again :)
We bought new patio furniture...and I supervised the assembly ;)
We tried out a new to us restaurant, Chuisano's Brick Oven Pizza. We consumed some liquid courage before heading to NFM to purchase a new stove and couch. Let me tell you...2 beers makes me much less indecisive ;)
We tackled yet another bright blue room is our house ;)
Snap Chat was my own special way of procrastinating...enjoy ;)
Although we spent more man hours painting than we have in any other room of the house...
It was MORE than worth it! #GoodbyeBlueHell
And somehow in the chaos of it all we decided that tearing out the bathroom vanity and flooring and the landing at the top of the stairs was a good idea...We were delirious ;)
However, our new carpet was due to be installed any day...so...really it was better now than later. This way we wouldn't have to worry about ruining our new carpet...
and just like painting the walls...it was a long process...but SO worth it!
Then after the carpet was installed...
It all came together and the basement has quickly become our favorite room in the house :)
As if we hadn't had enough changes around the house...our new stove and microwave were delivered...#LOVE
While it appears that we spent the entire month working on the house (we did!) we also managed to have some fun ;)
We hit up Sushi Train...possibly more than once ;)
We enjoyed many evenings watching TV in our improved basement/family room...While Gracie stared at us refusing to cuddle...I choose to think she was just enjoying the new carpet too much ;)
We spent a lot of time with our nieces and the rest of the family...but they aren't as fun to photograph ;)
Need I say more?
AJ showed off his baseball skills...I think the pink bat suits him ;)
Finally to celebrate 10 fun-filled months of marriage we headed down to the plaza for dinner and a gondola ride :)
P.F. Changs...please make these limited time cocktails a permanent fixture on your menu...YUM :)
Chopstick master...or so he thinks ;)
After dinner we headed over to the Gondola kiosk (not sure what else to call it) only to find out that they were booked until 9:30...who knew it was that popular? AJ wasn't too keen on waiting and was happy to skip it...but after I confessed that it was a life-long dream of mine to ride a gondola #dramaqueen; he agreed to wait the hour and a half for the next appointment....he is kind of the best!
We couldn't have asked for a better night to do this
I mean...seriously...how cool is that? #ImEasilyEntertained
While the Gonda"love" wasn't everything I anticipated it would be...we, as usual, had fun and I am glad we did it. I wouldn't likely do it again...but now we know!
