Worse before it gets better!

Just when I had almost finished unpacking the kitchen, the living room had to be moved into the kitchen!!  Well, at least the contents of the bookshelf. 

The floor on the other side of the kitchen was also messed up and had to be replaced.  They did a great job matching the stain with the new wood, and we are now waiting on it to dry.  I think the boys have been more displaced with these few days since the TV is not accessible!  Oh well!  But on Sunday, the bookshelf and other furniture will be moved back.  And I think we will be done with our summer kitchen project!

No more eating out!

We are officially eating at home again!!  Our kitchen is almost complete!  We have some cabinet issues that should be resolved soon, and some boxes that have to finish being unpacked, but it seems finished finally!  I love the colors of everything and don't think the pictures do it justice.  So you will just have to stop by for dinner sometime.  And it won't be take-out :)

Getting closer to the end!

It is Saturday morning and I am about to start to put things in my top cabinets!!!  Over the last week we had the walls painted; holes patched and repainted; tile put in; and the correct doors put on our cabinets.  Well that is almost done due to them losing a couple and not getting the bank of drawers delivered safely.  But we get our appliances delivered tomorrow and the countertop should be installed on Monday!!  So maybe, just maybe, we will be in our kitchen this week :)  The biggest question the boys have is where do we go out to eat for the last time before we eat at home again!

Our hidden trashcan...just try to open that up Champ!
