Chicken Gyro Recipe

Chicken Gyro

We’ve always been big gyro lovers. Actually, I don’t think I knew what a gyro was before I met Charlie. He obviously had me try one and I was hooked. These things are awesome. If you’re not sure what a gyro is, basically it’s a pita shell with lettuce, tomato, cheese (optional) tzatziki sauce, and meat (usually lamb or chicken). We decided to try our own out and they. are. awesome. Seriously.

Upstairs Hallway Painted

August 5, 2014 | Posted by Comment

Our upstairs hallway has finally been painted! This hallway is right outside my office, so for over a year every time I look out into the hall I saw pretty much nothing. Ugly walls. We picked up a Valspar green from Lowe’s and decided to just get it done last weekend. Not sure if you can handle the before and afters but I’ll post them anyway…

Ugh. Just look at this. Look at it!

Hallway Painted - Before

I know, I know…hideous.

And here it is now! I was so excited for it to be painted as soon as it was dry I hung up our cities wall decal.

Hallway Painted - After. Valspar Color of Money

It seriously amazes me with every room we paint how much it can transform the room! This looks like an entirely new hallway.

Who knew painting a hallway could make you so happy? Now we just need to hang up some pictures!

What have you painted recently?!
