Okay, So I am quite certain that the large majority of those reading this blog have heard of my "30th birthday mishap" from last year. Do Sea-Monkeys ring any bells? Long story short I will just say I love my husband dearly, but he is quite possibly the WORST present giver ever. (If he even remembers to give you one!) So last year I decided to go public with his attempts. And what do you know... I had the BEST birthday WEEK ever this year! Turns out he CAN be pretty thoughtful... you just have to shame the guy into it! ;)-
So we have been talking about painting the interior of our house forever and have had multiple paint splotches all over our walls for over a year now! When I left for Portland with the kids we had discussed Seth taking the opportunity to paint while we were gone for three weeks. But we never finalized colors before I left... and when I asked him if he had the chance to paint at all, he said no, and I believed him! When we came home and I opened the door I walked into a whole new house! He had painted the entire down stairs. Put up chair rail in the kitchen and dining room, crown molding in the family room and kitchen, molding around the family room windows... he worked SO hard and had my neighbor's excellent interior design skills to help! It looks awesome! He said he pulled his first all nighter ever and actually worked all the way through one night! It was a WONDERFUL birthday surprise!
So Saturday the 7th was Dallin's 2nd Birthday. We started the celebrations that morning with donuts for breakfast! :)
(Again, what a lovely green kitchen and crown molding! ;)
