I saw this glazing tutorial online and decided to give it a try. I found this great little table at a garage sale for $10...

Pulled out some leftover green paint I had in the garage....

Brushed on some glaze, added some home accents and...

Tada! I totally love it and officially hooked on glazing. I have this funky hexagon table I bought a couple months ago and have been wanting to paint it but didn't quite know what to do with it. I think it will be my next glazing project.

Notice the hardwood floors that we FINALLY finished...only 6 weeks after we started. I'm so glad the we're done and I love the new floors!

biting the bullet

Ever since Cory and I have been married people have constantly asked us "when are you going to have kids?". My indefinite answer has always been "five years". Well, we've finally decided to take the plunge and can now change that answer to five months. I'm 18 weeks pregnant with our first nugget and am due on October 8th. We just told our whole family this weekend and found out on Friday that we are going to be having a little girl. We're both trying to get over the shock as we were certain it would be a boy, but we're still nervous/anxious/excited all the same.

Gila Valley Temple

Last weekend Cory and I drove up to the Pima/Thatcher area for the Gila Valley Temple open house. The temple is gorgeous and we had a really fun time. After the open house we met up with our friends Heather & Terry for some yummy El Charros. Mmmm. Before we headed out of town, we got to go through Pres. Kimball's childhood home and met a really sweet lady who lives in the home he first lived in with his wife Camilla. It was great to get away, even just for the day, and spend some one on one time with the hubs. Loved it.
