Another week down. Happy full moon Friday! It's going to be a fabulous weekend around here, the weather looks glorious. The week seems to move very slowly, and then Friday comes around and the day flies by. Not much else to report. Anxious to get this weekend started.
Have a great one.

Loving my new summer pillow cases thanks to Aunt Cindy!
The flowers are happy.
George loves the lake, he roams all over and always comes back.
Photos from the weekend, wasn't the best weather wise but it cooled down a lot. I finally planted all of the hydrangeas! After having them for a few weeks, it feels good to have them planted in the ground where they belong. At the lake, George just loves life down there. I think he's lost some weight too, from all the running around he does. And Hadley went tubing with her brother and sister!
It's Monday, and I hope this week goes by a little faster than last week!

Refreshing and tasty, this cocktail is my go to drink. I like mine a little stronger than most, that is for sure. When I make this, I usually pour half of the glass up with Parrot Bay Coconut Rum, and the rest with Zevia Cola, which is a zero calorie cola with no artificial flavors.
Bottoms up, folks!

Started off the month celebrating the 4th all week basically.
Was a weird holiday with it falling in the middle of the week.
He has got the pool crystal clear.
She has been swimming in it as much as she can.
He thought he was surprising her with concert tickets.
She had already bought the concert tickets.
We both think alike so much, we don't even realize it.
He's still awesome.
She loves him so.

The kitchen was the biggest eyesore in our house, so much that I didn't like posting many photos of it. It was old, and clearly hadn't been touched up in a long long time.
We upgraded our fridge also! We kept the old fridge and put it in the basement, it's our beer/gatorade/extra food fridge. It's so nice having that extra space for food/drink.
We ripped out the hardwood in the kitchen also, it was in bad shape. This was the best before photo I took throughout this process, which has dry wall specs all over. We use this side door to come in and out when we swim in our pool, and the constant wetness was putting a damper on the wood. It was getting bad. Underneath all that hardwood, was aluminum flooring, if that's what it's even called.
We replaced the hardwood with porcelain tile. And we love it! Like love it.
My husband did all the tile work, and cutting tile isn't easy. He did a fantastic job!
Under the cabinet, we got a new radio. So much more sleek looking than that old beige huge looking thing.
The radio has a dimmer light which puts off some pretty good light at night.
The pendant lights that hang over the bar area were nice, and they matched the chandelier in the dining room. But they didn't go with our new kitchen so we changed them out.
The new ones are awesome!
Here is the old chandelier.
New chandelier. Matches the bar lights, and the kitchen hardware perfectly!
This side of the cabinets was plain white, nothing on it. We sanded it down, painted chalkboard paint on it so now we can write little sayings or what's for dinner, that sort of thing.
We hung some kitchen prints on the walls, had them printed at FedEx. Framed and done. Super easy.
Soo much better! I get a big silly grin on my face every time I walk into our kitchen now, rather than cringing at the ugliness that was our old kitchen! The only thing we would like to still do are the counter tops. We have this counter top paint we found, and after it's painted it looks like granite! It's a long process to start, so we haven't started it yet. Once we do, I will be sure to update this post. But in the meantime, I hope you've enjoyed this long thorough post about our kitchen. It was so much fun updating everything, it's amazing what a few changes can do.
