Allow me to prove my point:
What a mess, right??
The good news is that our new floor is about halfway installed, and all of our kitchen appliances are hooked up as of last night. Yay for being able to finally cook on a stove! Even though we only went 3 days without an oven, it felt like an eternity. An eternity of pizza and Subway...over it!
In case you missed it, we went with Hampton Bay laminate flooring from Home Depot, in "Blackened Maple", and I love how it turned out.
Now you may notice a theme in these next few photos.
The theme is: Tony did all the hard work. I'm so grateful he's able to just jump in and try something new, like installing the flooring, doing some plumbing under the sink, and messing with the wiring behind the wall. The fact that Tony is such a handyman has saved us a ton of money so far!
While he was doing all the backbreaking labor, I was either unpacking box after box with Chloe on my heels, or helping her build this super-awesome fort, complete with a tunnel entry.
It was hard work, I tell ya!
