Kitchen Update

 I thought I'd give you guys a little kitchen update to hold you over until I can give a full blown house update soon. We have come so far from the last time I updated you all. We are planning to move in the first weekend in February (So just about 2 1/2 weeks away). I can't tell you how excited I am! There is still quite a bit of work left to do, but we are just about at a point to where we can at least move in now and then work on the rest as we have the time and money to do so. The kitchen is just about done, which was the most time consuming and expensive room of the house. It was the one room I definitely wanted to get done before moving in so that we wouldn't have to live through a kitchen renovation with 2 small children. I'm so happy my dad was able to do all the work and we were able to rent a condo from a friend to make this possible. We only need to add base-boards and back-splash to finish it up!!

Here are a few before and after pictures of the kitchen.

 The hardwood floors upstairs are being re-finished next week and then the baseboards can go down and the new interior doors can go in. At that point, we'll be ready to move in for the most part. The walls have all been painted in the bedrooms and my Dad has been working tirelessly to get things finished up. We are on the downhill slope for sure! I plan to do a full house update post once we are at least at the point of moving in. I will list where we purchased things and post a lot of before and after pictures. It doesn't quite seem real to be this close to moving in!!! We couldn't be more excited!
