New Flooring & Kitchen Update

BEFORE:




And AFTER:



My friend, Amber, at Stone Cottage Chic got me started on the painting, and I have finished things up very slowly. Some days I would do one coat on just a few cabinets. Once the cabinets were painted, I would be cooking dinner and put two drawer pulls on and then do two more the next night. Little by little, it all came together, and I am so happy with the results.

The backsplash is made up of 10 inch square peel-and-stick pieces. I love that there is no grout to clean, but it has the look I was hoping to achieve. Thanks to our friend, Tyler for putting those up for me.

These handy dandy shelves are another favorite addition. Found them at Lowes.


You might notice the new floors, too. Those went through the whole house. Here are some shots of the living room.

And AFTER:

My favorite part of having this kind of flooring? It is laminate, and it is tough. It was only 99 cents a square foot and has a 50 year warranty! I looked and researched for months about hardwoods and never found anything I thought I'd be happy with. This stuff is perfect for us!

A Quick Hello & More From Our Photo Shoot with Malicote Photography

I am slowly adjusting to the boys both being away at school. Adam loves kindergarten and is doing beautifully. Levi has the same teacher, which has made for a smooth transition. Some of his classmates from last year are with him again, too.

We are getting ready for this year's Walk for Down Syndrome. Click here to help out by registering to walk or making a donation.

I said I'd post more of these photos and almost forgot!! I am 10 pounds lighter right now than I was in these photos! I have a ways to go, but it is nice to be making progress!
