Drumroll please....

Just a few reminders of how it looked before



You can see the wall color better-we think the buttercream tones really brighten up the room!

We LOVE it!

27 Years

This year for my birthday Clint surprised me with a weekend getaway. Last Friday I was told to pack my bags not knowing where he was taking me. We ended up in Mt. Airy, NC the hometown of Andy Griffith and the inspiration for the town of Mayberry. This place was super cute. He had made reservations for us to stay at a B&B right next to downtown. The place was beautiful, the food was good and the weather was perfect. (A well deserve break from all the snow.) We spent most of Saturday walking around downtown, browsing antique store and watching movies in our room. I couldn't think of a better way to spend a weekend.

On Tuesday (my birthday) Clint and I met his father and grandparents at a local Italian restaurant. Clint continued his tradition of baking me a birthday cake. This year's cake was strawberry with milk chocolate icing. It was delicious!

Thank you to everyone who sent me a card, called or wished me a happy birthday. I had a wonderful day and feel very blessed to be so loved!

Caution: Kitchen Remodel in Progress

This week our kitchen renovation got under way. Our contractor has been working non-stop each evening and has made some real progress in 3 short days. That's good news for us. It's killing me having the house out of order. I'll be glad when we can take the microwave out of the living room and the coffee maker out of the bathroom! But, hopefully it will only be for a short time and the results will be worth it. Here is a sneak peek at the progress so far:

Kitchen Before:You can see some test paint colors at the bottom of the molding, don't worry, we are not using the dark paint color

Kitchen Before: I sure won't be missing the old appliances!

After a few hours of demo

End of day 1

After day 3:bye-bye old cabinets, hello, beautiful new ones...sorry I can't hold my camera straight!
