The main reason I haven't updated is because we adopted 2 dogs! I know I said we were going to wait until the upstairs is finished before getting dogs, but I saw them on petfinder.com and they were too adorable to pass up. They grew up together, and would only be adopted together, which is perfect because we wanted 2 dogs! Here they are:
|Kiwi is a Chihuahua mix.|
|Jules is a Lab/Vizsla mix.|
|I love watching them play together. So cute!|
We've also taken a few trips since I've last updated. In February Matt and I went to Tampa to visit his grandparents.
|Matt and I at John's Pass in Florida.|
Then in April I went on a trip with a few of my college friends to Napa Valley. We were only there for a few days, but it was a blast!
|We went to wineries.|
|I had the best veggie burger of my life here. I think I'd come back to California just for that.|
I also had to go to a seminar for work in San Marcos, TX. Matt came down to San Antonio the weekend after for a quick trip.
|Me in San Antonio.|
|Matt at the Alamo.|
|The riverwalk was so nice, and we had gorgeous weather!|
In addition to dogs and traveling, I've also been training to run my first race! I'm running a 10k on May 5th, to raise money for the MS Society. If you want to donate, you can do so here: http://main.nationalmssociety.org/site/TR/Walk/PAEWalkEvents?px=10463753&pg=personal&fr_id=18482
We've also been slowly finishing the upstairs. It's so hard to get focused when you have 2 adorable dogs pandering for attention. Here are some recent updates of what we've been working on.
|There are only a few minor changes in the living room (including the dog!).|
|We also added a basket for all the dog toys we have now. The basket is from Ikea.|
|There's nothing really new with the dining room, but we just ordered a buffet, so hopefully we'll have an updated photo soon!|
|Not much has changed in the kitchen.|
|We added some puk lights under the cabinets.|
|I also bought these canisters at Ikea.|
|I finally finished the floor!|
|We haven't installed the vanity or toilet yet, but if all goes well tomorrow we should have a finished bathroom by Monday.|
|More tile floor.|
|And the tile wall, with the wall light and medicine cabinet.|
|We had decided ages ago that we were going to use Valspar "Courtyard Shadow" for the master bedroom.|
|I love how it came out. It's a greyish blue, but it looks almost purple when the sun hits it in the evening.|
|Here's the new drum fixture. I like that it has an uplight component. We got it at Ikea.|
Thanks for stopping by! Hopefully we'll have completed photos from the upstairs soon!
