This past Christmas, I told Jason that I didn't want any "tangible" gifts. Instead, I wanted for him to finish up some projects that we've been wanting to do for the last few years and have never had time to do. I didn't even need for the projects to be done by Christmas- just the promise that they'd be done this year. Well, unlike some projects that have taken much (much) longer, my Christmas gifts were done by Feb.!! I was only expecting one and Jason completed two! I am so excited to share...
We got this bench and shelf many years ago. We got it in red, the accent color of our kitchen/family area. Well, since then, we remodeled our home and the "look" in that area is now more greens and browns. I felt that the red shelf/bench against our green walls looked too Christmas-y. I've been wanting to paint them brown for years but have been too busy to commit to doing it. Well, here's my "new" bench/shelf!

We've had a very warm winter- we couldn't believe how beautiful the weather was this past weekend, so we definitely had to take advantage of it. We had gotten a Groupon for the kids earlier this year and it was about to expire. We met up with some friends and it turned into a pretty fantastic day! If only every weekend was a 3-day weekend!
