hard at work

I've been neglectful of the blog the last few days for good reason: progress.

Our friend, Scott, has been hard at work on our kitchen tearing out cupboards, building new cupboards, etc. Jon has been hard at work building our countertops and doing other miscellaneous projects (such as tearing out still other kitchen cupboards, refinishing the floors, etc.) I've been trying to get everything settled from the baby shower as well as assist in the kitchen.

Yesterday Nikki and Jim came over and helped us out. Jim helped Jon with the counters while Nikki helped me begin the priming process of the existing kitchen cupboards we're keeping. It has been a very long couple of days but we're making progress and I'm excited to see what the final product will look like. I'm also quite anxious to have a functioning kitchen complete with a stove! Don't get me wrong, I love grilling, but naturally the second I was stoveless I was craving spaghetti, mac and cheese, and all the other stove/oven friendly foods. My fingers are crossed for a Saturday completion because we're hosting Father's Day brunch at our house on Sunday. Failure to finish kitchen by then will result in some very creative recipes on our part.

Hopefully I can post pictures soon. I had started a kitchen blog update about a week ago but then life got nutso and that fell by the wayside. Jon is off work today so he's hoping to completely finish at least 1 of the 2 counters. I'm hoping to finish priming the remaining cabinets. Tomorrow my parents are coming over to help with house projects while Jon is at work. Once this kitchen is done the only major indoor project remaining on the to do list is the full bath remodel. I can't wait until the indoor to do list has no major components!
