So Close....






It's soooooooooo close. Yes, I meant all the o's. I'm talking about the kitchen. I can't believe it, it's almost done and it's beautiful. Roger's parents came last weekend and stayed until the fourth. Roger was off all week. What did that combination produce? Well see for yourself!


There are just a few finishing touches to do. I need to paint the base boards, clean out and paint the closet, then we are rolling. There are a few things that will remain unfinished for a little while. Our plan is to get an island, but that will wait. We will also probably wait to get hardware for the cabinets, until we can afford it and until we are sure the doors open on the side we want them to. I can't believe honestly how beautiful it is. We have never undertaken a project of this magnitude before and I was so unsure and nervous. I didn't know if the things we picked out would all come together and look good. The great news is that it is better than I could have imagined. Thank you so much Grant and Margaret and Roger for all your hard work.


I also decided it was time to update my top five. I find in my life that I slowly become obsessed with things. By obsessed I mean spending more time thinking about and reading about things than is probably normal... It happens when I have a lot of time on my hands. It may be slightly embarrassing, but that's ok, it is what it is! Why can't I be obsessed with cleaning or something?

FINALLY!!! I have been looking at your blog a million times since Grant and Margaret left waiting and waiting for pictures. It's SOOOOO beautiful!! I'm so excited for you and that's what I call sink. . .man alive! I think you could fit like five of our sinks in it!

Yippee, we're so excited for your kitchen!

Looks great; I'm so impressed! We have a toilet paper roller that has been broken since we moved in and we still haven't tackled the task! Love your new list as well; fun obsessions!
