kitchen remodel (better late than never)

After we had Henry we decided to do some work on our kitchen. it was the last room in the house that could really use some updating. the counters were a beautiful hunter green and the cabinets boxed in the kitchen to make it feel closed off and tinier than it already was. So of course the husband took on the project with his best friend Jason. They were going to knock it out in one saturday and just retile the counters. HAH. about 2 hours after i had left the boys i got a text from Josh that read, "i tried to call you..." and had a picture attached. i was nervous. the picture was of our cabinets completely taken off out of the kitchen. whoa. and our little 2 hour project turned into a 2 month project :)

but it was so worth it. It took a little bit longer than we would have liked since josh works an 8-5 job and has a family that he would like to spend time with at night and on the weekends. but it did get finished and i think it was under 2 months that it was in progress. it looks awesome now. it totally opened up the whole house and really gives it a completely different feel. i think this will really help when we do try and sell our house.

here are our before and after pics...


check out that beautiful green tile :)

and our lovely cabinets that closed off the kitchen.

of course jaks had to get in there and help

IN THE PROCESS... we lived like this for a little while :/ lots of pizza's and microwave meals.

Josh painted the walls, fixed the cabinets to really open it up, put in granite tiles on the counters and did the same granite on the backsplash, widened the counter tops and put in new cabinet handles. WAY TO GO HUBBY!!

missing you granddaddy!

Last Tuesday marked the one year since we lost our granddaddy. I can't believe that a year has already gone by. I miss him so much! This past saturday we had a graveside service for him and buried his ashes. It was the perfect little ceremony. There were beautiful blue skies, music playing and a short and sweet ceremony with family all around~ it was just my granddaddy's style.

we had a fun day playing out in Tallapoosa.

here is a little picture overload from the day :)

A Date with Mommy and Daddy to the Circus!

Josh and i got to take jakson man on a special date a couple of weeks ago to the circus! My momma watched henry for us. After we dropped him off Jakson asked, "Where's Honry Tate?!" about 10 times! (i swear that boy will never let me forget his little brother)

we got to enjoy a little chick-fil-a date with the little guy before we went into the circus. they had a fun little pre-show where we got to go down on the floor to meet the performers and see some of the animals. jakson was front row for the elephant's show and he was speechless! (elephants are his favorite at the moment!)

i didn't take many pics but here are the few i did take...

jaks and daddy waiting in line...

jaks and i down at the pre-show.

too many strangers around for jakson, hah.

watching the pre-show. (i have never seen him sit so still!)

gross. yes, that is a loaf of bread...she was HUGE!

fun day at the zoo!

oh hey there :)

i thought i would get a blog post in while Henny benny naps and jaks is playing...

yesterday we took a fun trip to the zoo! We went with my mom, sister and her kids, sister in law and her kids, and my friend Jess and her daughter. there were LOTS of kiddos and it was so fun! They had a blast playing with each other and seeing all of the animals. i was pretty excited about taking jakson because he is very interested in animals right now. of course he had a blast because he got to run around with his cousins and friends all. day. long.
