YEAH, WE FINALLY MADE THE DECISION

Today is a very happy day at our house! It’s official… the kitchen cabinets have been ordered! Yes, Greg… I’m going to say it… Holla! As you know, we’ve gone back and forth… and back and forth… between Ikea, Lowe’s/Kraft Maid, and custom cabinets. But last week, we finally bit the bullet, made some decisions, and placed an order. Before we get to the “who”, we’re going to talk about the “why”. Through the entire process, we’ve considered pretty much all of…

THE THIRD CONDO ON THE RIGHT

We’re back with a rundown on last week’s vacation to the happiest place on earth, Disney World! By now you guys have probably picked up on the fact that we’re total Disney geeks.

We know, we’re long overdue for a kitchen “reinstall” update. Well, the kitchen is still “in limbo” so to speak. We’re sure some of you are wondering what in the world is taking us so long. Rest assured, we ask ourselves that same question pretty much everyday. I guess what it comes down to is with this being our first house, we’re just being super slow to make such a huge decision. We’re wanting to make sure it’s the right…
