The most exciting news you'll read today. (Or maybe it's just exciting to me).

I know you've all been waiting for this news.... Like, edge of your seat in anticipation, type of waiting. So - here it is. Wait no longer. My news is...

Our kitchen cupboards are installed. Hells yeah!

This is very exciting for you. I know. I'll pause for a moment to let you catch your breath and calm your delicate nerves.

*Pause. Blink. Pause.*

Moving on. Our counter top is in as well. The stove and microwave are back in their places. And... happiest of happy news - We. Have. A. Dishwasher.

I'll say that again for emphasis: We. Have. A. Dishwasher. (I'm sorry, but I'm getting a little teary eyed right now just thinking of it).

We got so excited about the dishwasher that we loaded it up and used it immediately last night. Of course, it was a bit anticlimactic when the dishes came out filthy. It took us 2 more tries before we realized that the water that goes to the dishwasher wasn't turned on. So all we were doing was cooking dirt onto our dishes. Twice.


We got that figured out. And then we (of course) hit a little snag. We realized we hated the paint colour we chose.

So... hubster and I hustled off to Home Depot for the trillionth time and picked out a new colour. Last night we primed everything, got almost all our junk back into the cupboards, and tonight we'll hopefully paint the first coat of our new colour.

And then... AND THEN... I will breathe a huge sigh of relief and will revel in the gorgeousness that is my brand, new kitchen.



  1. awesome news! when can i take possession of your old dishwasher.. ha!

  2. Congratulations on the new kitchen. I can't wait to see it. Send pictures.

  3. I think I speak for everyone when I say that I'd love to see you use that fancy camera of yours to capture the gorgeousness that is now your kitchen.

    I'm just sayin'

  4. Pictures will come soon! Probably next week, if I'm being honest. :) It's just that we're pretty preoccupied with the painting and then the cleaning and stuff. Not to mention we have no food in the house, I'm trying to do laundry, and we have a wedding to go to on Saturday. Phew! :)
