Progress.

Well, we have been going non-stop all weekend moving and unpacking and I was sure we would crash eventually. But Monday morning I woke up wide-eyed at 6 a.m. for a run. Then we worked all day, came home and made dinner. We put a movie on around 7 p.m. and we both fell fast asleep!
I guess we needed it because Tuesday after work, we were ready to get some serious work done. The kitchen is D.O.N.E and you don't know how happy that makes me! Everything has a place and is neatly organized. Beautiful! The kitchen is narrow so it was hard to get pictures, but here you go:
The deck was the first finished. It was easy and we were anxious to start using it. We have been drinking our coffee out there in the mornings. And last night we had a glass of wine out there and there were bats and fire flires everywhere! It was quite the display.

Home Sweet Home and we're loving it.

sorry for the deleted comment I noticed a type o and it bugged me :)

Anyway like I said before you're doing such an awesome job of making your new place feel like home. I love our balcony so much it's not very big but it's so quiet and peaceful especially in the mornings when I'm doing my prayer time.

My kitchen was the first thing I unpacked. I couldn't stand everything not having a place in there right away :)

I am impressed! We have been in our house for two years, and I feel like I'm just now getting the rooms how I want them. I love your deck too! I wish I had a nice pretty view where I could sit and drink coffee, but it is too hot here now anyway. Can't wait to see more pictures!

Your kitchen layout looks similar to mine -- very, very narrow! Especially for two people! I love the bottles on the back of the stove -- very cute!
