This is going to be short and sweet because the sun sucked everything out of us today! After breakfast Chris, John, Megan and I packed up in our car and headed to Cabo for the day. It's a beautiful town with beautiful people! We were determined to snorkel so we caught a water taxi and got a tour of the famous rocks and sea lions (we got so close I felt like we were at sea world!)... then we got dropped off on Lovers Beach. We spend an hour and a half just swimming. It was heavenly. Our taxi guy picked us back up and then dropped us off at a good snorkeling area. I totally had to mentally prepare for this excursion. I'm like deathly afraid of fish but fish are like my husbands bff and I wanted to share it with him. I jumped in and had an asthma attack. I tried so hard to be brave and I was 70% of the time, it was that 30% when the school of fish came and swarmed around me and they were not small fish!! I screamed through my snorkel countless times and grabbed onto strangers to save me. The fish were beautiful, some were even glowing but they are not my friends. After our water taxi came back to rescue us we went back to the main beach and had lunch on the strip. Did a little shopping, saw some freaky animals and wanted to take all the little mexican kids home with us! They're seriously like 5 and they are out trying to sell things. It was so hard to say no. After all that we came back to our resort and crashed! We were going to go out to this beautiful restauarant to celebrate our anniversary but instead we made dinner in and got cozy. We had a thunder storm this evening which was so perfect! We got sooo much color today and it felt good to have some rain and get cozy. We are so lazy and so relaxed. It's been an awesome day. We are so happy and feel so so blessed!
Remember that one time my husband bought a tv wall mount and then I decided we needed a new tv stand? And then it made me realize our dark furniture would look way better if I lightened it up? And then it was time to get rid of the old dark throw pillows and dark rug? And then all of a sudden that fireplace looked so out of place. So we gutted it. All because we put the tv on the wall! Here’s a little walk down our DIY family room makeover. Before . I started with this old corner cabinet that i got for free years ago and painted chocolate brown. I dusted her off and went to town with chalk paint. Then I got rid of the old dark rug and started changing out our throw pillows. Then it was onto the fireplace. Before Chris took out part of the wood floor to extend the floor of the tiny fireplace. We also cleaned out the fireplace and sprayed it with cream paint that can withstand 1,200 degree temperatures. And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
