WOW Me Wednesday – A little late!

Tara won 1st Place in our Homemade Soup contest at my annual Harvest Party.  Not only is this soup delicious but she took it over the top with homemade grilled cheese croutons (not the goldfish, lol).  Here is her recipe!  Just click on the link:

P.S.  If you don’t follow her blog you should – everything she makes is delicious – for reals! xoxo

Kitchen – Countertop is IN!

Standard

Wholly schmolly!  I soooo love it!! Plumber is next!

Seriously, I have not had this much countertop in 5 years! Actually, I don’t think my other house had this much!

Tile backspash after the holidays (from Lowes).

My countertop – Home Depot Quartz – Cortina

Kitchen – One Step Closer

Standard

Yep – that’s a laser!!!  The countertop guy came back and everything was level!! Yahooooooo!!! Thanks Tim (and Maurene) Martin!! So the countdown begins!!  November 12th is my install date!

Kitchen – Good News – Bad News

Standard

Good news . . . . cabinets are in!  Bad news . . . I have to re-level!!!!!!!  Longgggg story – but countertop guy came to measure and the 2 base cabinets to left of the dishwasher are lower than the cabinet to the right of the dishwasher!!!!  Seriously???? Whoooo knew that an 8′ level is required for making sure that the “long” run of cabinets are alllllllll level together.  Well, I thought they were level until he stuck that 8′ level (maybe it was 6′ – it was way bigger than my 4′ level) across the 2 left cabinets, across the dishwasher to the other cabinet.  Soooooooo I have to start over on those . . . sooooo bummed!!!  This is taking FOREVER!

Here are my countertop & tile choices.  The countertop is “Cortina” Quartz by Viatera (Home Depot) and the tile for my backsplash is called “Avalon” from Lowe’s.  I wanted a simpler countertop because I wanted the statement to be my backsplash.  The tile reminds me of a quilt – perfect for my little farmhouse.

Kitchen Sink – Delivered!

Standard

Yahoo my sink is here!  Dang, I was totally impressed that it came in it’s own fabric bag!  I feel like I’m unwrapping a Kate Spade Bag! LOL

Comes with the two heavy weight sink rinse grids (drying racks), template, mounting clips and basket strainer/drain assembly.

I loveee the short divide in the middle – so much easier for washing dishes (well, rinsing dishes).  30″ wide, 19″ front to back, sinks are 10″ deep and the middle is 4″ lower. Here is the link if you’re interested: https://tinyurl.com/y3nu3br4
