furniture changes

Allen had  an older 70's dresser that he wanted to keep and thought his wife was crazy when I suggested painting it. He now likes it even more and it looks updated in black with satin nickel knobs!! 

Our next project almost done!!
The best part was two weeks later going shopping for home decor with my good friend Michelle. Allen had a little bit of shopping bag/bill shock. He didn't realize how many things "we needed" but was an awesome sport hanging things in difficult to reach places and adding his own touch!!

New Year's

We celebrate New Year's Eve according to Eastern Standard Time, since we had an early morning wake up on New Year's Day.

We went out to dinner then to the Santa Monica Pier, where we had our first kiss a year ago!! Then ended the evening with an amazing brownie sundae from Cafe 50's and called it an early night.

We woke up by 5am on Saturday morning to meet friends at the Union Station to take the Gold Line to Pasadena for the Rose Parade and the Rose Bowl game!! Allen was really excited about going to a Bowl Game (he's from TX and has football in the blood). He was impressed with the parade and enjoyed it a lot more than he thought he would, except the tight bleachers.

I was really glad that our seats in the stadium had backs, opposed to the bleacher game seats we had two years ago. I only had some back pain for about an hour until the Tylenol kicked in. I was exhausted the next day but so glad we went. When I told my brother that we're pregnant he said to take advantage of having no kids and go out and do everything you want. He just had his third and realizes how much harder it to go out with kids.

I knew it would be a long and tiring day for me but we ended the day with Roast Beef Sandwiches from Phillipes and we were both in bed by 8pm.

I've been told that we'll be back at the Rose Bowl on Sept 17th when the Texas Longhorns beat UCLA.
