birthday before and after

Zac's boss pointed out to him the other day that we must be in the stage of life where our "needs" still make pretty good gifts. Indeed, indeed.

I don't even think his boss even knew that we had actually mutually decided to get this:

as a combined birthday gift for both Zac and myself (since my bday is in just a couple weeks, hint hint hint).

I know, it's such an exciting gift. (Does this make us pathetic that this is what we are giving each other? Oh well.)

So, today as part of my "gift" for Zac's birthday, I tackled the family room. It really needed it. A friend of mine has inspired me to post before and after pics of simple accomplishments (even though I cringe a little to do so, the difference is pretty impressive, if I do say so myself. Just don't judge me).

Here's the before pic:

And after:

Ta-da!! I have to say, the carpet cleaner was pretty awesome, too. (and someday we'll even replace this old ratty freecycled couch)
But hey, maybe on my birthday . . . he'll even clean the living room for me. aww, yeaaah. ;)

Oooh, I loooove having a carpet cleaner. I probably don't use mine often enough, but it's nice to have the OPTION of clean carpet at least! :)
