Happy Birthday Matt!

Before:

AFTER!

The area rug was originally $129.99 at Target...I got it for $30!!!!! Matt always says the tile makes his feet cold in the morning, so I got it for him (maybe a little for me, too).

I surprised him with a healthy dinner. He's been working out and eating healthy diligently for a month and a half now. So instead of my typical comfort food, I went light. On Matt's Birthday menu:
Lime-Marinated Broiled Salmon, Cucumber Watercress Salad, and Whole Wheat Bread from Albertson's Culinary Circle brand (it tasted homemade)!

The birthday boy approves!
It was literally 90 degrees on Friday, so I had to make food that wouldn't heat up our house more. This was perfect because I only had to have the broiler on for a few minutes.

Instead of baking a cake, we had sorbet for dessert. It was nice on such a warm night!

Saturday we went down to Los Angeles for our Stake's Temple Day. It was so peaceful. No protesters...and uplifting words from the new Temple President to start our day off. It was wonderful to be spiritually strengthened. Afterwards, we went to Sprinkles and walked down Rodeo Dr. I loved looking at the fancy stores, Matt loved seeing the fancy cars! We saw Ferraris, Bugattis, Rolls-Royces, and tons of Benzies.

Here was the view on our drive to IKEA. There were so many fires on our drive! I hope that everyone is safe and the fires are contained soon.
We had a wonderful weekend celebrating. I am so grateful for my selfless husband and the wonderful man he is! Happy Birthday baby!!
