Well it's about time we give this kitchen some much needed love.  We decided to take out that oh so ugly electric stove top.  So of course one new appliance leads to the oven, dishwasher, microwave and before you know you spend to much.  But we did forget one the microwave, but she will be updated soon.  We went with a gas stove.  I love, love, love it!!!  There is something about stainless steel that represents a clean environment.  We took out that UGLY and I can not emphasis on the word UGLY counter top.  A pale pink Formica.  We replaced it with a Quartz counter top.  I just love it!!  Well silly us thinking we will save pennies and remove the tile back splash our selves.  Oh boy!! hmmm I am not sure those pennies were worth it...LOL.  It wasn't easy but we got them off.  Needless to say there we (ok I) left some pretty good holes.  So now we are on the the prepping of the wall and painting.  Have not decided on a back splash yet.  May go with one or may not.   That is the least of my worries.  We will wait a few weeks before we do anything with the cabinets.  Trying to decided which way we want to go with the cabinets.  They are wood and in great condition so we will see.

Yay!!!! My kitchen is all painted and I can finally put things back.  The problem that I have is I want to put new things back in  I am sure all understand.  The dinning  room came out great.  Better then I expected.

Awww! Where to start.  Oh!! I know.  It was that thing called employment.  My husband took a job offer that brought us to good ol' Georgetown, Texas nearly three years ago.  We left what had become home to us for sixteen years.  Which was very hot! Hot! Hot! Phoenix, Arizona.  We went from city life to what I call country.  It has taken some getting use to.  I share this wonderful home with my fantastic husband and two children. 18 year old boy and 16 year old girl.  Our oldest lives here in TX as well.  My husband and I look forward to those empty nester days.  They won't be to long now.

Home is a wonderful place to be.  It's a place filled with LOVE, LAUGHTER AND DREAMS.  I love my house but it is a little awkward.  It seems most of the space is all up stairs.  The down stairs is tiny.  It needs to be flipped so the square footage makes since.  We have not paid much attention to this big beautiful beast and I believe now is the time to do so.  So we are finally making changes some big and some small.  We were blessed with a nice size yard also.  That needs a lot of TLC.  I see a lot of work in our future.
