First pics..... :)

So here we are so far:)
Still need:
 Paint, counter tops, faucet, back splash, crown molding, hardware and a kitchen island:)
But how much do you love this table?? I bought this from Chris at Uber Chic Home.
He always has the coolest stuff that he finds in Europe and brings it back
here for all of us to enjoy:)
Aaaanyway, I'm calling this the gathering table. If you look close, you can see a tiny
piece of blue tape on the floor where the kitchen island will go over in front of the sink:)
I wanted a separate space where everyone could hang out but wouldn't be
in the way of the cookin! 
Speaking of cookin....!!! GASP!! It's here.
It's finally here:)
I've been thinking long and hard at what fabulousness I was going
to cook on her for the first time.
Boiled eggs.
I know. Totally LAME!!
I told that beautiful gal to just wait one more week and we're
gonna cook up a FEAST!!

My laundry room:) sans wood counter tops. They're a comin!
I'll tell you what, I have not quit doing laundry since Friday when
my machines got hooked up.
I want to live in here.....
Because here's the "living" room:( where flooring is still being ripped out and redone.
Look at my paint color on the wall back there by Jesus.
Sherwin Williams - Windsor Greige:)
It's my current fave, and I'll be using it pretty much everywhere:)

So there you have it. It looks chaotic and it is. But man! I'm counting my blessings
that we're this far!! :)

Oh hello... !!! :)

Ok, I know you all thought I fell into the big hole in my kitchen and was lost forever.
And honestly over the last few weeks there were times I thought that sounded-
But alas- that big hole was covered up, and here I am back to bloggin!!
Cabinets are here:)
From the best Cabinet Company in all the land if you ask me!!
Hear that horn? That's me, and I'm tootin it.
Denovo Fine Cabinetry is our family biz where we
design, manufacture and install the bestest in custom cabinetry.
Need some? Give 'em a call:)
Aaaanyway, cabinet delivery day is always the day when I get the happiest:)
(insert girly giggle and jazz hands here)
It's when you can finally see some real progress:)
Here's a pic of the new little tiny guest room that is where the old kitchen used to be.
Sooo very sad- the original floors in this house were not able to be salvaged:(
Trust me, this decision was heart wrenching:(
Underneath a layer of cheap oak that was laid in the 80's (I'm assuming),
we discovered a whole lot of patches and areas that were just beyond repair due to several "remodels"
in the past. So we had no choice but to lay all new hardwood flooring.

Just take a look at what that amazing talent of a hubby made out of the
old flooring!! The kitchen hood !!
 I know right?? He's just a little bit crafty. Just a little bit:)
Me so happy:)

So that's all I gots for now. More pics next week:)
A huge thank you to my amazing neighbors.
You know, like J.D. who text me that she was heading outta town
and left me a key so I could hang out in her awesome AC when the
temps in my house were upwards of a not so awesome 84 degrees:(
And God bless L.O. who brought me a beautiful bundle of happiness when
she knew I needed something pretty to look at!!

Life just wouldn't be fair if I didn't include a pic of Little Bully:)
Look at that face. His begging eyes went between me and that sweet potato like
he was watching a tennis match. It was hilarious:)
You see, sweet potatoes are the love of LB's life.
The hubby plucked a fresh one from the garden and decided to put it
there on the table to taunt him.....I couldn't take it.
YESSSS!! Of course I gave it to him:)
