Here's what I got for my birthday on Wednesday!
He KNOWS how obsessed I am with Coconut Lime Verbena. So he went and bought me enough delicious smelling stuff to keep me happy for a LONG time. Seriously, the body scrub makes me indescribably happy--and ATTRACTIVE.He loves to overwhelm me with quantity.
He also got me...
Money at Joann's is like a dream come true. Now I can make all the crafts I want without feeling guilty for buying unnecessary items when we're paying for a house. SO FUN.
AND he got me this beautiful mirror!
I really should have taken a picture where you could see the white crown molding--it looks SO GOOD with the white mirror and beige walls. Wow. We spray painted the mirror white yesterday. It was so easy and fun, and makes such a difference. Every time we walk into the living room we just stare at the wall. It's beautiful!
He ALSO gave me something that I've been wanting for a long time:
An angled spatula! I wanted one ever since Alton talked about it on Good Eats. I used it yesterday to frost a cake. It worked BEAUTIFULLY. I'm obsessed with it. Kyle went all out and I was really excited with my presents from him.
First of all, this pretty necklace from Etsy:
I even used it's magnifying glass function today when looking at my temporary license. YES I GAVE UP MY CALIFORNIA RESIDENCY ON TUESDAY, OKAY? I'm still really sad about it. But at least I have this pretty necklace.
Katy also went delightfully overboard on the DVD front:
Along with an X-Files craze comes, inevitably, a Return To Me craving:
My favorite movie since high school, which I couldn't watch anymore because I have a VHS and no VCR:
And, right in time for Halloween, the best zombie movie ever made:
Oh man that pleases me. I also got some sweet cash from Mom and Dad so I can actually buy furniture for my new home. I have a couple more presents coming that I know of--and I'm very excited. I love that Birthday Week didn't end this year!
Ashley made this beautiful delicious Brazilian cake for my birthday, and Alan brought enough beverages to hydrate an army. It was a nice gesture :)
It was a great birthday. Katy and I saw Zombieland and LOVED IT. I mean, it was gory, but it was so funny and we love zombie movies. I laughed the whole time! And, strangely enough, it made me like Woody Harrelson. I REALLY didn't see that coming. Kyle and Katy and I went to Art City Trolley, a really cute restaurant in Springville that we wanted to try. It turned out to be delicious!
Anyways. Our house is really coming together. I'll post pictures later--although the best part is that bookcase/mirror wall that I already showed you.
