Making Progress and still sane! It's a miracle.

Can we say crazy! It's been almost a month since I last posted. It feels like a year! So much going on it's hard to keep up. First of all, I got married on July 7th. We flew out to Las Vegas and got married and honeymooned there for 5 days. We had a fantastic time. It was romantic and exciting. We only told our family so it was quite a surprise to our friends when we got back. Working on a reception for family and friend for early September. That will be a lot of fun.

Since we got back, we have worked on the kitchen remodel every day and it's almost done. Just a few more weeks. The floor will be down Sunday and then a few more things to do and I will finally have a functioning kitchen again. What a disruption this has been.

My youngest daughter is expecting her second son in September so I have been planning a shower for her. It was supposed to be at our home, but since the kitchen isn't finished we had it a local civic center this past Saturday. We had a lot of fun and she got some really nice things. She was happy and that made me happy. They sure have come a long way since I had my kids.

I just had to post this pic of this diaper cake. A good friend of mine made one for her daughter who just had a little boy a few months ago and I thought it was adorable so I asked her to make one for me. It turned out great and my daugher, Amanda just loved it.

I've posted some pics of the kitchen. It is still evolving, but it's come a long way. I am so ready for it to just be done, but I'm really happy with it so far. A lot of changes along the way. Nothing ever ends up like you plan. I'm just getting impatient and ready to decorate and get my house cleaned up. My primitive pretties have been packed up way too long. I did sneak the pie safe in the kitchen temporarily. :)

I hope you enjoy the pics and I would love to know your thoughts.

My new hanging lights over the island. And you can just see the new door being installed. It is just beautiful. And to the right is the new pantry.

This will be the new dining area. Don't worry the fridge will not be there when we're done.

The new island. Woo Hoo! It's pretty big at 4' wide by 8' long and chock full of cabinets. Something is definitely wrong with me if I don't have enough cabinets now. LOL

My new pot rack over the stove.(don't mind the extra piece of bead board in front of the stove) Boy did I stress over this! It had to be 30" wide exactly to fit and it had to have a light. I searched everywhere and finally found one on eBay. We stained it in the early american to match the bead board. I painted the cabinets a sage green (which I think adds a colonial touch).

Have a great evening!
