I cleaned my kitchen for this

Well, I'm not sure if you remember this, but earlier this year Wes and I had this amazing plan to redo a room a month. hmm... obviously that didn't happen, but we are getting to work on it now. And when I say "we" I really mean my parents. They are getting us new countertops, a new faucet, a new microwave, and possibly backsplash for our kitchen. Is your mouth hitting the floor? Mine still is. They are way too generous and my mom loves redoing rooms so I'm reaping the benefit of that obsession! No more making fun of her for watching HGTV all the time. :)

My folks woke up at like 4:30 Friday morning to get some good deals. (that's the sink Wes and I bought yesterday) This faucet was advertised at Lowes for half off and they got one! We love it!
Here are our current countertops. They are fine and are in pretty good condition but my mom found a really great deal with her friend from work so we get to upgrade! We are super excited!
Our microwaved belonged to my grandparents. It's seen much better days and sometimes it's a struggle to get it to work. We were going to buy a new one someday soon and my parents surprised us by getting us a microvent so we will get a new vent too! Isn't that awesome?? We were thinking of putting that shiny stuff up but we might be getting a steal on this tile we are looking at so I'm not sure yet.
Wes and I bought a new sink (you can see it up top). We found one we really liked and would last hopefully forever but it wasn't going to come in until January from Lowes! yikes! So, I went home and looked online at Home Depot and it was on sale like crazy until today! I snatched that up and hopefully it will be delivered this week!

Congratulations to Ashley and Conn!! She had sweet baby Cash this morning! He is precious!! I am so excited for you guys!!

I love new kitchens...I don't cook, of course, but they look so pretty! Shame to get them dirty! :) We're having new floors installed this week...laminate wood. I'm beyond excited!

About the header on my site, I don't know how to do it either. I won this header in a contest from Pink ArmChair Designs (there is a link to it at the bottom of my sidebar). I bought my other one from her. She has the best prices that I have seen for people that do this stuff.
