The "K" word of the day is Kitchen! I totally skipped the "I" on Sunday--too busy. I apologize in advance for all of the pictures, but I wanted to show you all of the long awaited progress. There is still a lot to finish up, knobs and handles, some trim work, etc...And the rest of the house just got painted, so it is all in disarray. Remember the kitchen above? I sure do.

I got my dream double oven. My husband made me think it just couldn't happen, but on Christmas he surprised me by giving me the drawings. I already used them twice this weekend, and I love them! Clams casino in the bottom while a chicken was roasting in the top oven.

Also love the new stove top! High heat burners, griddle, and grill.

Lots and lots of storage, something I had none of in the old kitchen. I'm in Heaven.

Beautiful tile floor.

Now the frig is a funny story. We got this on e-bay and it is a BIG beautiful Thermador. Wasn't cheap either. It took 4 big guys to get it in. This is my nephew helping my husband.

Isn't it beautiful? NOT! It arrived without any panels or handles! It is suppose to be all stainless steel. Evidently, we can either get stainless or wood to match the cabinets. It came with neither. So this is waiting to be resolved with the seller. In the mean time, it does get really cold and has a great freezer.

Love my new counter tops. Can't really tell by these pictures, but the colors are really pretty.

A shot from our new entrance. Where I am standing, there is a huge window and table behind me. I'll show you that later.

Another shot, you can look into the living room now.

Freshly painted dining room and living room.

Looking into the kitchen from the dining room. So there you have it----A preview of my new kitchen. I really love it a lot and can't wait until everything is finished and all put back together! I hope you all had a nice weekend and are ready for a new week! XOXO
