House Updates and $75 Home Depot Gift Card Giveaway!

Hello hello!  Yes, I am still here LOL!  The craziness of the past few weeks can’t be understated, but it’s mostly been a good crazy.  Sorry to have been so MIA, but I expect things to calm down a little after we complete a few of these big projects on the house.

We finished up our kitchen cabinet makeover, which I revealed in my last post here.  I’m loving how fresh and bright the new white paint has made the kitchen feel.  We then did some research to choose our stone for the new countertops, including visiting a granite yard to see the full slab of the granite we chose.

Then we researched contractors in our area, mostly using our local Facebook page for recommendations.  We called a few of those recommended and had them come out to do estimates for installing and fabricating the countertops for the kitchen, kitchen work station, and downstairs bathroom.  We are hoping to have enough granite left over from the slabs to finish the little bathroom.Our countertops should be in by this weekend and I am crazy excited about that!  These cracked, tile counters are driving me batty!

We also made a last minute decision to go ahead and purchase our new floors, as they were having a great sale with no interest financing for Labor Day weekend.  And you know I can’t just have boxes of gorgeous laminate flooring just sitting around without installing it, so we started that project last weekend.  This is a quick shot from my Instagram of how they are looking so far.

So that’s what we are working on, and as you can imagine, it’s taking every spare moment to get it finished!  I’m hoping to be done soon and back to blogging regularly.  But in the meantime, I’ve got something really awesome for you guys!
