Anniversary Weekend & Entry Update

This weekend was extra special.  We celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary Sunday!  We honestly celebrated all weekend long.  I was surprised Friday at work by our FedEx man carrying flowers.  (The flowers were from Joey, not our FedEx man.)  We also spent Saturday night hanging wallpaper together, (which was actually a blast).  We binged on Netflix, (bought groceries somewhere in there), and lastly, had dinner together.


We had to steal a few million kisses before we left her to play with Gran for a couple of hours while we went out for dinner.  
(First Anniversary with her.)  


                                                   Our main gift to each other was this wall, 
                               which we are so "cheese-ily" calling it, "Our Anniversary Wall". 
   We are so relieved that the hard work is behind us and now we have this beautiful room as a result!
The wallpaper is from Hygge & West and we bought all of our supplies for hanging it at Lowe's.
The 7th year gift is copper, right?  Ehh... close enough.


It only took us about 3 hours from beginning to end to hang the wallpaper, but we also painted the surrounding walls so that they area looked clean and fresh.  The color we chose is a great white, for those of you looking for a beautiful, clean, bright color.  It's called Alabaster from Sherwin Williams.  We cleaned the room out, took a deep breath, and hoped for the best.  
This was our first attempt at hanging wallpaper... 
But to us that's the fun of home improvements; DIY!
The end result is the reward.  Here's a few pictures from the process...


We worked from the middle of the wall to the outside.

We love it!  
Now we have rearranged all the living room furniture away from the TV and toward this view!

And because I can't write a post without mentioning Little Miss- I have to announce that she reached up and grabbed the mobile of her RockaRoo this weekend!  She's getting stronger and stronger everyday and it's so fascinating to watch her change and grow.


Hope you guys had a fun relaxing weekend.
