400 Posts? Oh Snap!

Whoo hoo!!! I can't believe I've written 400 posts! And I can't believe you've read even some of them!

It cracks me up every time I run into someone who casually mentions something that I know I haven't told them personally and they say "I read it on your blog!" I'm like FOR REAL? You read my blog?! It just makes my day. :)

So for my 400th post, I would love to be posting the reveal of our kitchen remodel, but alas - all projects take approximately 2x longer than you expect. HOWEVER, we are very close to being as finished as we're going to be for now (we're waiting to do floors and a couple other small things). Here's a super fun list of all the things that have been accomplished since the 2nd weekend in June:
  • removed, sanded, and painted cabinets white
  • added trim to make the cabinets "shaker style"
  • added "satin nickel" hardware
  • painted shelves in dining room area
  • painted walls "Herb Garden" green
  • removed old oven
  • installed new (stainless) oven and 3 new base cabinets
  • purchased new (stainless) microwave
  • installed new (granite!) countertops
  • new under-the-counter sink and beautiful faucet (with a sprayer and soap pump!!) I am easy to please.
  • inherited a gorgeous dark wood armoire that we're using as a pantry
  • still waiting on: curtains (can't decide on fabric), glass to be installed in two upper cabinets (to display our china), backsplash (we're working on deciding tonight), "accessorizing" (any takers on coming to help accessorize before the "big reveal"??)
So instead of showing my "afters", I will leave you (here on this 400th post) with the ancient photos of what our kitchen once was...

Dude, it just makes it that much better to compare these to how different it looks now!!


  1. There's an unwritten rule that you absolutely cannot post "before" photos without also posting the "after" photos! :) I can't wait to see the NEW kitchen!

  2. I'm writing you an anonymous letter: I wanna help accessorize. I wish I lived near you so I could! I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT ALL DONE! YAY!!!

    PS - this was my first anonymous letter!


Even if it's just to say "You so silly, Sarah" - please feel free to leave comments!
