First of all, thank you guys for your congratulations on my recent promotion. You are so sweet! Second of all……. the kitchen is done, the kitchen is done!!!!!! Man, I was starting to lose it but it is all worth it at the end.
Let’s remind ourselves what the kitchen looked like before:
That hole on the left wall is the opening to the living room.
Oh yeah, 1980′s all the way!
And now the after pics.
Can you see how open it is now to the living room?
It’s looking a little bare right now. I can’t wait to put all of our stuff back in and make it really ours. For now, it just feels like we are in someone else’s (nicer looking) house. We couldn’t be happier!!
What do you think? How did we do?
I broke out the new stove by making a… wait for it…. frozen pizza! Hehe, we had no groceries and I actually wasn’t sure that the kitchen was going to be done today. It’s been going to be done “today” for over a week now.
TJ’s wild mushroom black truffle flatbread – my favorite!
I had 1/2 of this. Good thing I’m a good wife because I easily could have eaten the whole thing but I left the rest for Adam.
Adam was a good husband too. He brought me cookies that I “urgently” requested. Sometimes a girl just needs cookies.
I’m just a model of health here today, aren’t I? I figured it was better to satisfy my craving than eat everything else in the house.
The rest of today’s eats…
2 mini cinnamon buns from Holey Donuts
Instant blueberry oats, 1/2 banana, Barney Butter and cherry preserves
Very sweet but oh so good.
Mixed greens, grilled chicken, dried figs, cucumbers, pears and goat cheese
The pear slices were by far the best part of the salad!
Clif Mojo mountain mix bar
Too much sugar, not enough fruits and veggies. Oh well. Everyday can’t be perfect, right?
We’re taking my parents out to dinner tomorrow night to celebrate my promotion and the new kitchen, so my next post will be a dinner recap (I have a pizza lunch tomorrow at work – not exactly exciting stuff).
The kitchen is done!!!!!! Sorry, I just had to say it one more time. Weeeeeeee
