Almost done!

Here are a few pictures of our kitchen now. We are not 100% finished, but for the most part we have completed the major projects. Here is a quick list of what we did: removed wallpaper, textured walls, painted walls, tiled floors (thanks to Tim and Amy for all their help!), new countertops, new dishwasher, new faucet, sanded-deglossed-oil painted cabinets, new hardware, new blinds, new wall decorations. Oh and btw each one of those projects had set-backs (sometimes huge problems) as does any home improvement project does! Feel free to visit anytime!

Oh and this a yummy fruit pizza that I made this weekend for a BBQ.

I'm Back!

Okay so my 4 followers probably don't believe me, but my goal is to get better at blogging!
I love reading my friends and family blogs but have been selfish and have not blogged my own updates. As my disclaimer states, I don't promise to be great at this but I hope to be more consistent.

So for my first update I wanted to share some pictures of our never-ending home improvement project. We began in late February. Andrew had time off in March and he worked tirelessly on this project. Everything took longer than expected because of complications, but we are slowly seeing signs of completion.
I need to thank my dear husband for all the hours of frustrations he put into this project. I am very proud how he tackled obstacles with determination, where I probably would have given up. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
Here are some before and during pictures. We cant wait to have all our after pictures to show you!

Here is our kitchen pre-remodeling. Don't you love the dark wallpaper!
Hard at work--grouting tile in the kitchen and Andrew scraping off wall paper in the bathroom. Looking good hubby!

Here is our bathroom before and after. No wallpaper and painted cabinets. Much better!
