Projects, Projects, Projects!

So.... if you know me, you know I love holidays. I grew up in a house where my mom always decorated for holidays so now thats all I want to do this time of year. (Right now I'm on a pumpkin kick) Last year I wanted a Christmas Tree really bad. So Todd got me one! It has fun colorful lights on it along with all of our silly ornaments. The only thing that was missing was a tree skirt. I decided that since the holiday fabric just came in I should get some while it was still there (and cheap). So I made a tree skirt. If i didn't make it right away, I know I probably wouldn't have done it at all!

The other project that has been keeping us busy, mainly Todd, is this tv cabinent. My mom called one morning and said that she and her girlfriend had seen this when they were walking that morning. It had a FREE sign on it so they went back and got it for me while I was at work. When I got home it was sitting on our front porch. We worked hard on sanding it... and sanding it again, and after 12 cans of spray paint....

We got this!!!

I absolutely love how it turned out! I think Todd thinks I'm crazy! He didn't think it was needed but it's so much cuter than what we had before! Now I can hide all his nintendo stuff! Gotta love FREE!!!!


Last month we had the opportunity to go see one of my favorite musicals. Wicked!!! It was my third time going but Todd's first. We started our day by going to the temple for a good friends sealing. Then we hopped on to Bart to head into the city.
We had a blast seeing Wicked with our good friends the Jacksons and Mauchelys. After the show we all headed back into Pleasanton and met up at Cheesecake Factory for a delicious dinner and dessert! Overall it was a long day but soooo worth it!
