Yesterday Gigi's house was getting cleaned so the dogs and I took the kiddos to Ms. Sheryl's for the day and then we headed up to see the house. We had a couple hours to kill so I thought that would be a good time to go take a good walk-thru the house. Usually we go up there when we have the kids in tow and it's hard to really get a good look at everything when they are there. So, yesterday was the perfect time.
It was a little messy and muddy trying to get into the house and I know the guys working next door were getting a kick out of this girl trying to get into a house without getting her feet muddy....:)
We are so pleased with the way things are coming along and I finally took a few pictures of the downstairs.
Here is the kitchen...remember how the cabinets were stained a lovely coffee color awhile back?? They finally got them to where they are supposed to be and I love the way they turned out.
They installed the granite a few weeks ago but the backsplash was new and it's perfect!!!

The little desk area by the kitchen...I love this!

Yesterday during my day off, I also spent an hour at Ace Hardware picking out our paint for the house. That's not even the time I've spent online looking....sheesh it's a big job!!! We are meeting our paint guy at our house this weekend so he can let us know how much it's going to cost to get certain rooms painted. Like I've said before, Nick would rather poke out his own eye than paint but we have to cut costs somewhere so we will have the professionals do the harder rooms like the kitchen, etc. We are going to try to get everything painted before we even move in...hopefully!!
As of now, we are closing January 22nd but this is also after about 8 date changes so we won't be surprised if it gets pushed back again.
