One of my biggest dislikes in this house was the dated… well… everything was dated! The pink countertops, the blue walls, the brass light fixtures… Even the lovely southwestern valences the previous owners so graciously left for us.
Last weekend I was perusing the Lowes ad and found an awesome light that would go perfectly over the entry way inside the house. Leon liked it too, so we went to Lowes to pick it up… While we were there we figured we might as well pick out all the other light fixtures that we wanted.
This is what we had above the door, it’s terrible and every single house in Arizona comes with this fixture. I was going to paint it oil rubbed bronze to spruce it up a bit but I LOVE the new one so much I just can’t wait to trash the old one!
Annddd… drum roll please… the new one:
I love it!!
The next light fixture we replaced is the ugly track lighting that was over our kitchen table.
And the new and improved:
So much better, huh?!
Last but not least – in the kitchen nook:
And the new:
I’m so happy with the outcome. I think they look fabulous!
Hello all!! I’m sorry I haven’t been on here in a month or so.
We are getting so excited about Baby Perdue. I’m 19 weeks now and we found out the exciting news last week….
Baby P is a GIRL!
We had the ultrasound at Valley Perinatal in Mesa and we were impressed with the setup. It was very comfortable, relaxing and the ultrasound tech was super friendly. She explained what everything was and showed us some pretty awesome shots of out baby doll. We got to see her punching me (Rocky style) and rubbing her eyes. She was also playing with the umbilical cord and grabbing at her feet.
Here are a few week – by – week pictures of me:
7 weeks (no bump)
I’m definitely showing now! I even have strangers comment that I’m pregnant. I love it! 🙂
We announced the gender to our family at Gilbert Pizza.
I made confetti poppers using wrapping paper rolls and tissue paper.
I cut the up and rolled them in pink and blue tissue paper:
I cut up streamers in pink and white to stuff them with:
And then I tied the ends with curling ribbon
Our family held them and twisted and the confetti came out.
I got my mom and dad’s reaction on video and it was pretty awesome. If I can figure out how to post video on here i will, but here is a still shot:
Can you tell my mom is stoked about it being a girl!?
That’s all for now, I need to go eat dinner and go to bed early because we have an early day tomorrow. Hopefully I’ll have time to come back and post more tomorrow…. I have some things to show you!!
Till next time…. xoxox
