Home Updates- Update!

Happy Tuesday, my friends! Today is a big day for the Sloans because after months of kitchen renovations, we are finally getting our countertops in. To say I’m excited would be a huge understatement. I’m so tired of washing dishes in the bathtub and it’s even worse now that we are cooking and have big pots and pans. After today, we will only have a few minor things left like installing molding and touching up paint before we are dunzo {with the kitchen, that is}!

Here’s a little sneak peek fory’all! I haven’t even seen it in person yet but I just couldn’t wait to share it with you guys!


A few months ago, you may remember where I shared this post about us staying in our current home and thus sparking our kitchen renovation. Since we’ve accomplished so much the past few months, I thought it was past time to revisit our home updates list and cross a few things off! While it looks like we still have a lot to do {we do!}, I’m pretty stinkin’ proud of what we’ve gotten accomplished.  A lot of these things like adding on a full bath and laundry room are way in the future {and may never happen} and I’m sure I’ll add things along the way but right now here’s how it looks…

  1. The hubs & I are talking about redoing our kitchen OR taking a vacation – I think I need to take a vacation while someone redoes my kitchen. I couldn’t have the patience you have during all this – but its going to all pay off – so beautiful.
