We have been super busy with house stuff over the last week. Tony and his stepdad texturized all of the ceilings and it looks so much better. The previous owners had scraped off the popcorn ceilings, which is great, but they didn't do a very good job and the ceilings were left with an uneven appearance. They now look much more professional. Sorry, I don't have any before/after pics for this since I wasn't there and I forgot to ask Tony to take some "before" pics. But on the bright side, it's just ceilings and who really cares, right?
Our dishwasher, oven and hood arrived on Saturday! Again, I forgot to snap any pictures. But these are the models we decided on.

I thought I was done choosing paint colors for the house, but once I got samples at Home Depot and painted small patches on the walls, I wasn't loving them like I thought I would. I don't know if they just look different in person, or if Home Depot didn't mix them correctly (they are Benjamin Moore colors that I had color matched at Home Depot). So I'm back to the drawing board with colors.
On a happy note, Tony's mom found this awesome vintage vanity at an estate sale and she bought it for part of Chloe's birthday present.

While Tony worked on the ceilings on Saturday, I took Chloe to my nephew's birthday party at Elevated Sportz, which is an indoor trampoline park.

After we got home that night, I made myself a salad for dinner. About halfway through my salad, I slowly set down my fork and proclaimed to Tony those dreaded words: "I don't feel so good..." I'll spare you the details but the remainder of that night, the next day and the following day were no bueno. Could it have been the pancake batter with raw egg that I licked off the spoon Saturday morning? The pizza I ate at Target after buying Jaxon's b-day present (gross, I know)? The second round of pizza I had at the trampoline park? Or the two (yes, two) cupcakes I ate afterwards? I'll never know the cause of my illness, but I guess it's my punishment for being such a glutton all weekend. Back to fruits & veggies I go!
I sure hope you had a better weekend than mine!
