Brian's Office Surprise

A couple months ago Brian went up to Washington for a few days to help his mom with a few things around her house. While he was gone, I decided to surprise him with a fully decorated and renovated office. I got an old desk from a lady at work for free and with the help of my dad we were able to sand down the top and front and stain and seal it, then put new hardware on it to make it look good as new. :-) With the help of I found my inspiration for colors and then enlisted my dad to do the actual painting. He was the BIGGEST help! I also had the help of my Aunt Jamie and cousin Missy, they came over the night before and put together this huge memo board... unfortunately it didn't go with the room as I had imagined so I had to scrap it. :-( Sorry girls! I still really appreciate the time you two put in! On the day of Brian's arrival the chair I ordered came in, only 2 hours before I was to pick him up from the airport. What I didn't anticipate was that the chair wasn't assembled, so I had to call my dad last minute and have him help me put the thing together. Well all in all let's just say that Brian was indeed surprised! He was completely shocked when he got home, and poor guy had to hook up all of his cables and transfer all of his stuff from his old desk to his new desk, but he really enjoys his new space and all of my efforts! :-) Here are some before and after pictures... hey, I'm no photographer...

Sushi Night

Last night we had our friends Cort and Lyndsey Clater over to make Brian's favorite... SUSHI! The four of us went to an Asian market and got all of the ingredients and had a great time looking around at all the cool things that were there that we had never seen before. Then we went back to our place and made our very first attempt at making sushi... the result? Pretty good! Surprizingly, it was really easy to make, we used sticky rice, imitation crab, shrimp, salmon sashimi, cucumber and avacado. Here are some pictures of us making the sushi and then with the rolls we created.
