Happy Wednesday! Hope everyone’s been having a good week! We’ve been graced with a few rainy days over here and we’re certainly not complaining. When there is 100% chance of rain in Phoenix, you bust out your umbrella, throw on your rain boots and trench coat, and head out for the day!
We’ve been keeping busy over here getting things in order for the house renovations and some upcoming travel. We go out of town next week and will be having our kitchen and bathrooms remodeled while we’re away. We are so excited about coming back to a new place, well it won’t fully be done, but at least some changes will be underway. Progress guys!! 🙂 It’s a little crazy to leave while so many changes will be going on, but one of our plans is to skim-coat the whole house, which basically just means removing the texture from all the walls. This is a messy process with a lot of dust, so our contractor and a few friends who had it done recommended we be away while that is completed. Back in November as I was sitting on the floor of our apartment, finishing packing everything up before our move, Rob came into our bedroom saying that we should go to Paris. At first I thought he was nuts….we were just buying our first house, but the tickets were crazy cheap so we jumped on the opportunity. It felt so far away at that point, but now we leave next Wednesday and couldn’t be more excited to explore Paris together. This has been a trip we have literally been dreaming about as teenagers in his parents’ backyard. There’s so much more we can say, but we’ll save that for another time. So, with that trip already planned, we figured we’d take our friends’ advice and get everything started on the house while we’re gone. It should take about three days and then they can begin on retiling the bathrooms and kitchen. We’re a little nervous, but have some amazingly sweet friends checking in on the space while we’re away, so that definitely puts any nerves we have at ease. Can’t wait to show you guys what we’ve been working on!
So back to the other day…we threw on some of our rain gear favorites, finished selecting the finishes for the bathrooms (you can see some inspiration on our Pinterest board here), did a little food shopping, and then spontaneously decided to catch a movie. What rebels! 😉 Haha! It was an unexpected date night that we both really needed after feeling like our minds were being pulled in several different directions. Plus, movie theater popcorn is a pretty great way to end off any day, right?
