I noticed we haven’t posted since October 20th, so I thought you needed an update. The tile is officially completed!! (Except for sealing the grout, which we have to wait 21 days on that, so it says)

Here are a few pics of recent kitchen happenings:

Talin cutting tile. Thanks Josh and Mehgan for letting us borrow their wet saw!

Me measuring tile to be cut!

Two weekends ago, we had some unexpected guests come over and pitch in! Lesley called me Saturday morning and said “We’re coming over to help.” I tried to stop her, but she was too determined and so therefore she and Chad spent the day helping us finish paint and grout! We are so blessed to have friends like Chad and Lesley who would give up their day off… so, here is a pic of Chad working and Lesley and I watching the boys work on our Sonic break!

Lesley was apparently very tired….

We got so much done that day, and we couldn’t have done it without those 4 extra hands, so THANK YOU Montandons…. You are awesome! After working hard, we went over to the Dyess’ to cheer on the Red Raiders to victory against UT…. (Talin and I have decided to adopt Texas Tech while the Cowboys are apparently off on some extended vacation from winning football games….) So, “get your guns up” like everyone in Lubbock, Texas says.

This past weekend Mom, Dad and Nicole came to visit- we had a busy, crazy weekend, but Dad helped Talin put cabinet doors back on, and tie up a few other loose ends. Sorry, Dad, I didn’t take a picture… can’t prove that you worked…

Here is a picture from tonight… we are so happy with the results… everything looks great and I’m sure you are tired of hearing about it, so have no fear! There will not be many more posts about our kitchen!

Our cabinet handles are on order… If you are Christmas shopping, you should check out overstock.com . They are doing Site-Wide $1 shipping, and you can hardly drive to the store for that price! We got a GREAT deal on our hardware… and it should be delivered this week!

That’s all for now! Y’all have a great week!!

    Yea for the kitchen! 🙂
    Ours needs new tile and to have the wallpaper torn out. Want to come help? Or are you done with home improvement for a while?
    It looks great! 🙂

    So posting that picture of me is the thanks I get for coming over to help? Okay, I have learned my lesson. 🙂 Just kidding, I need to learn to not pose in such stupid ways.
