Happy sigh! I can not get over how much I love my bright new kitchen! (The vanities got replaced too - in the dark colour that the island is, but with a different countertop). Now I can't wait to get our new black stainless appliances, choose the tile backsplash, paint the window frames and of course get the new flooring put in! Still so much to do to get this room finished, but having a kitchen again is the biggest part. So happy to have that done now!

Guess what? Guess what? My kitchen got delivered today!! The dining room is packed, and I can not wait to come home from work tomorrow to see it all put together!

Still kitchen-less, we figured it was a good time to take Les' parents out for their (belated) Christmas gift by going to the Olive Garden. And even though we were all stuffed, this kid insisted she needed something for dessert!

The chickens are starting to explore their fenced-in area outside of their chicken coop.

Driving home from an errand today, and I was just blown away by the view that I get to come home to everyday.

Tonight was parent/child date night! Les took Joelle out and I got to spend time with this chickie!

Renos continue, even while we wait for the kitchen. Today we made the oh-so-fun discovery that the carpet that is in our hallways & dining room has another layer underneath. Wow - check out that 70's vibe!!

Well, my kitchen got delayed and won't be delivered & installed until sometime next week. But in the meantime, I'm trying to lift up my spirits by enjoying the gorgeous country view that I get from my new (long) driveway.

This is all that's left of our kitchen, while we wait for the new one to be delivered (on Thursday!) and installed (on Friday). Hurry up kitchen!!

I didn't have great luck with clothes shopping this weekend in Grand Forks - but I did find a few things for the house! This bird cage was one of my finds.
