Happy Easter & a Kitchen Update

Hello friends, and


I can't believe it's been two weeks since I last posted. The kitchen remodel has consumed all of my free time. I am happy to report that we are nearing completion. I have a few photos to share with you today though. 


I have been looking forward to Easter weekend because both my kids were supposed to be home for Easter. Well, I started feeling bad on Thursday but I went to work on Friday due to the kindergarten Easter party. I did not want to leave a substitute with that chaos...lol! I was able to leave work early though. I have progressively gotten worse over the weekend and am thinking I may have strep throat. I've never had it that I can remember, but something is definitely going on with my neck and throat. I am so miserable. I have been trying to power through the weekend though and am making sure I don't get too close to anyone. I don't want to share whatever this is. And then, my son, Dakota said he thought he was going to have to work on Easter which makes me sad. He may be able to come for a quick visit though.


This bunny pitcher full of flowers was my only Easter decoration this year. My new kitchen was definitely worth giving up my decorating this year though.


I did hang my thrifted spring wreath on the front door too. Sorry about the dark photo.


Now, let me share a few sneak peeks of the kitchen. We still have to finish the bar top, pantry, and flooring, open shelving, along with a few other things, but the major work is DONE!


I love this corner! And I am in love with my wood tile counters!


The next photo shows all the details that are unfinished. 


Here's the coffee station. It isn't finished either. The corner trim needs to be painted. The wood veneer still needs to be put on the edge of the counter and stained. There will be open shelving on the wall above the coffee pot as well. My sink is in but I didn't get a picture of it yet. 


My new light fixture is gorgeous! I love the design it casts on the ceiling.


This is taken from beneath the light. Isn't it neat?


I'll be back as soon as I can to share some more. I pray each of you has a blessed and beautiful Easter spent with your loved ones. 
Until next time.....

  3. We changed things up a bit and Chucks' aunt had an afternoon cookout on Saturday afternoon so family could just spend Easter with immediate family. Surprisingly we all liked it better than the usual formal Easter dinner. The kitchen looks great. You take care of that throat!

  5. I do hope you don't have what Steve has - he has been leveled for 2 weeks and everyone tells him that it will be a couple more weeks before he will be 100%.

    Happy Easter!

  11. Oh Vicky! I am so, so sorry to hear you are ill - we have had a good few weeks of sickness in our home and it is really horrible!
    Praying that you will get better very soon!

    I just adore your cute bunny pitcher... And your wreath is lovely too!

    Your kitchen is coming along just beautifully... I am sure you must be super excited that it is almost done... And the coffee station is just perfect - what would life be like without coffee...? I say this for while I have been catching up on a few blogs, I have been sipping a morning cuppa... Hmmm...:)

  18. Your kitchen is looking amazing! Love that light fixture and your tiled counter tops look perfect! Just a few more little "finishes" and the stress of a renovation will be over. We're doing a kitchen reno in the fall. Not looking forward to living without a kitchen, but I know it will be worth it!!
