Contrasts: our balcony - before and after series

Have you ever seen Extreme Makeover: Home Edition? Well, something like that happened to us on Saturday! David's father called  us to see if we were home and after two minutes, we see his big truck loaded with huge boxes approaching our house! My in-laws bought an awesome barbecue and outdoor furniture for our balcony! :D

Our balcony before






Our balcony after






They also gave us two adorable planters, the barbecue cover and accessories and even picnic blankets and a set of dominoes!





Today David used the barbecue for the very first time. His carne sandwiches came out great :p.




They said this is their wedding present to us. We feel bad they spent so much money on us, but we definitely love our new balcony! It really makes the house look bigger; now we have an extra room to hang out in ;).

Hope you've all started the week off with a big smile! :D

And don't forget to enter my Little Vintage Giveaway!

Hugs!
