5 months later.....

Well of course we are not done! But are we ever really going to be done? Probably not...at least that's what people say. However 5 months later we have done something. We are finally feeling like this house is more liveable. There are still saws, hammers, and nails all over the place but were getting there. Thank you so much for the nice comments we have no idea what we are doing or how its going to turn out so thanks for the encouragement!!

Again, we are not done...like the microwave. It's still needs to be installed. But its so exciting for us to have a kitchen with running water and a dishwasher. I cooked the other night and it was so fun! We recently went to our storage and pulled out all the kitchen stuff and I unpacked it all and set up the kitchen the way I wanted. SO FUN!!!!!

Hey, Erin...its Brianne. So fun that you found me...just looking through your blog reminds me of our basement...I can't believe all the work you guys have done and it looks amazing... our basement work is on hiatis..we got two rooms done, the hall, and bathroom and have to still do another room, and the laundry room and I just dread getting back on the horse, plus with two kids EVERYTHING is an ordeal. Well I will be checking up often...I love all the colors on your walls too.!!!!! Love me

I can't wait to have my own home to decorate it the way I want to. Your house looks great! I love the stairs and your kitchen countertops.

So, I met this guy on a work cruise last November through a mutual friend. I saw him again today (he was visiting Utah for business) and we got to talking. I guess he's from Cali (rock on) and then when i asked where. . . he said Riverside. . .jigga what? Yeah, apparently he knows you from probably High School times. Don't worry, I'm not trying to set you up, he and his wife live in LA. His name is Dan Dunn. Do you know him? I don't know how close you guys were but, his number is801.369.5485. I told him you had a blog and he said he should get it to get in touch with you. I don't know his email or i would have just sent it to him. Random, I know. . .

I hardly know where to begin . . .

First of all, I LOVE the before and after pics!! Second, I love your new appliances. (As if the kitchen wasn't looking awesome enough even without them!) Third, I am proud of you for being excited to cook . . . remember that feeling!

Okay and last . . . have you decided after all these months that you are keeping the chandelier???

lacy said...

I forgot to mention that I am jealous of your white kitchen cabinets and dark granite countertops . . .

Maegan & Mark said...
