It's finally happened! After living in this house for 2 1/2 years, I finally have a new kitchen sink and countertop! The previous counter was yellowish with green and sparkly gold undertones; and it had a big chunk cut out of it so the dishwasher could slide under. Hideous. The sink was tiny, chipped, and had no garbage disposal (a fact that a friend of mine discovered after shoving a handful of zucchini peelings down my drain). Well, Monday my wish of over two years was granted--Chad and my dad took out the old, and put in the new. Chad and I put the finishing touches on Tuesday, (thank you sweetheart for all that time you spent cramped under that sink!) and voila! I love my kitchen! I thought I had taken better “before” pics, but this shows you what it looked like when we bought the house. Thank goodness for a handy husband (his skills are endless: carpentry, plumbing, electrical, you name it!) and super-helpful parents, who not only came to help Monday, but took the kids home to stay this week. Chad and I got a lot done around the house, and have REALLY enjoyed our alone time! Thanks Mom and Dad!
