Our New Kitchen

When we moved into the house all of our appliances were the cream color and there wasn't an over the range microwave, so those things have been slowly updated.  We decided since we were going to put in granite counter tops we might as well get a new stove now since we were dealing with back splashes and we didn't want to mess the granite up afterward.  So here is a few before pictures... 

 A few torn up picutres...

 The back splash before was laminate (I think), and wasn't put up very well, so Wes didn't want to put the granite up with that stuff there, so he tore all that off.  I have to admit I was pretty nervous about it!  So here is the new granite, sink and faucet...

 We were thinking about doing a  tile backsplash, but decided the 6 inch granite looked really good, so we just had to come up with a color to paint it.  Wes picked the color I have to give him the credit, he's better at this stuff than I am!!  Wes also had to do some texture on the back wall to cover up the glue marks from the old stuff.  He did a great job!!
 This is the mostly finished product!  We got new hardware too, but the hinges didn't quite work with our cupboards so we are still needing to figure out what to do with those.  We love our new kitchen!!  We have to give a huge THANK YOU to Fred, he gave us some money and told us we had to do something fun with it.  So here's what we did with some of it  (it's going to help with the baby room too)!!  Thanks Pops we love you!!!

32 weeks!!!

That's right I'm 32 weeks today!!!  That means only 8 more weeks to go...well probably 9 lets be honest its my first baby (if I was really lucky it would be 7 more weeks!)  Anyway still feeling pretty good although I'm finding I have a lot less sympathy for people that come in to the hospital with normal aches and pains of pregnancy that aren't even as far along as I am! My friends at work would definitely attest to the fact that I get grumpy a LOT more often than I used to!  I am starting to understand why people work themselves up about every little thing thinking there might be something wrong.  This morning I wasn't feeling him move and got totally freaked out, so I went to the store to buy juice and did a kick count and obviously he kicked like 15 times in 20 minutes and it was nothing!  Anyway I really am feeling big and awkward, rolling over in bed, tying my shoes, you know the normal stuff!  He really likes to dig his foot or something into my ribs, so that's not very comfortable!!  But we are getting more and more excited, but I keep thinking about how much I need to do before he gets here, so I'm getting a little stressed!!

29 weeks and 4 days

Here's another pregnancy photo update.  I'm in my third trimester now and am still feeling pretty good!  Working three 12 hour night shift in a row is getting a little more difficult...lets just say I'm a little grumpy by my last shift!  I'm still able to work out most days a week which is good.  I feel pretty huge already and some daily tasks are getting a little difficult, like putting on my socks and bending down to tie my shoes!  I can only imagine how I'm going to feel when I'm 40 weeks!!  I can't believe I'm due in less than 11 weeks!  It seems crazy!!  Our baby is moving all over the place, except when other people try to feel him move!!  I swear he'll be doing flips, then the second someone puts their hand on my belly he stops!!  We finally bought a dark cherry wood crib for the nursery, but we still have a long way to go before it's ready. 

For those of you anxiously waiting for pictures of our new granite countertops, kitchen sink and faucet... Wes won't let me blog photos until the backsplash is finished, so just stay tuned!!
