Living Room Progress

On move-in day, our living room looked like this: 

It had to get worse before it could get better.  The first order of business was picking a new paint color:

Then our new sofa (and other furniture) was delivered:

Here's what the living room looks like now:
Here are the three projects we're still working on:
1. Have mantle built and installed.
2. Hang pictures and mirror.
3. DIY new-to-us chairs for either side of the end table.
I'm sure as soon as we mark off these three tasks, six more will magically appear ;)

Let's Go on a Date

Lance and I celebrated our 6th anniversary this month.  I found this gift idea on Pinterest and decided to take it and make it my own.  Here's what I came up with:

So we have 12 dates planned, one for each month of the next year.  Husband Man has to wait until the first of each month to open that month's date; it's the gift that keeps on giving!  I am super excited about all the fun dates I have planned!!
