The house is moving right along and we are so excited every time we see significant progress.

Over the holidays, our cabinets were installed.  LOVE!

The cabinet space itself is enough to make crazy, since there are over twice the number of cabinets than what I had in our old house.  Seriously excited!!  But I do have a favorite cabinet:

It's the little things, people.  The little things.

Then they textured and painted the walls.

And poured the driveway.

When they were bricking the house in mid-December, they actually ran out before they could finish the back and some of the accents in the front.  The brick was delivered over the holidays and yesterday, they got in completed.  So excited!!

Our contractor told us that the counter tops should be installed this week.  Yesterday they installed the counter tops in the bathrooms, but no kitchen granite yet.  This is what I'm really waiting for!

However, my absolute favorite thing was delivered yesterday, but not installed just yet.  My bath tub!

Like I said, it's the little things.  But I day dream nearly every night of relaxing in my jetted tub after the kids are in bed.  Music playing, candles lit, a glass of wine... well, I don't drink wine, so nix that, but it's a nice day dream, huh?

THE Stephanie
I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
