Late Check In

Good afternoon friends! A bit of a late start for me today… why? I’m on vacation. While I’m technically using vacation leave, I prefer to call it moving hell.

This morning I met a kitchen designer over at the new house to talk about adding some additional pantry space. Our new kitchen is WAY smaller than our current one.

Current kitchen:


You can’t see it in this picture, put I have a huge pantry beside the fridge that has a TON of storage! I’m also going to miss the island. There is storage in it on the side not pictured.

New kitchen:

See that cabinet to the right? It’s not there anymore. So the designer is going to work on some sketches to build us a pantry and maybe a little desk area too! Can’t wait to see it.

While I was there I got to see the newly installed hardwood for the first time. We ripped out all the carpets on the second floor. I’m so happy to say goodbye to that nasty germy disgusting carpet.

Master before (with all the former owners stuff in it)

This is the master now. Bad angle. But see that doorway on the left? That’s Andrew’s closet.


And this is the entrance to MY closet. You have noooooo idea how excited I am to have my own closet. The pictures really don’t do it any justice. It’s HUGE.IMG-20110629-00242 

And my other favorite part?

Second floor laundry! The washer and dryer are right beside the master bedroom. Hopefully all my laundry issues will cease after this.

Laundry issues = never putting away laundry. I’m bad.


Anyways, enough house talk for now. I arrived home famished, and whipped up a random bowl of deliciousness.IMG_7307

Quinoa, broccoli, and chickpeas topped with a dallop of butter, S&P and some nutritional yeast. Random yes, but delicious and also practical. I’m trying to eat what we have in the fridge so we don’t have to move it!


I meant to rave about my Sally Hansen Nail Effects earlier, but forgot. I’m on day 5 and they still look fabulous. Sorry for posting my gross runner’s feet on the internet, but I love how cute they kind of look!

My big toe nail is cracked horizontally in the middle (being held on with nail glue), and both of my middle toes are black so I’m too embarassed to go get a pedicure. These nail strips are going to be my saviour this summer!


Alright.. I best get back to packing. Later!

I love your new floors! And I have kitchen envy. And closet envy. And a bit of laundry envy. Happy moving!
