From Like Totally Geek to Like Totally Sheik

Actually more like from totally bad to totally rad!  As some of you know, Adam and I bought our first house and have been working like mad on our new kitchen.  I say "we" have been working like mad, but really it's been Adam, my dad and brother-in-law.  They have been working like mad and I've been watching like crazy.  Here is a little taste of how the process went:

This is before... take it in, it's truly a sight.

Another angle of the kitchen in it's previous glory.

Here's Adam tearing up the linoleum after he tore out the cabinets. 
FYI: linoleum from the 70's that the original owners put down with some sort of industrial glue that I am sure is no longer legal in the US sucks to pull up.  I recommend not doing it...ever.

Posing with our new cabinetry from Lowes.  Yay!

After Adam dry-walled and painted and my dad re-framed the window and added new electrical outlets, my new floor is finally getting laid, oww!

And now, drum roll please.....my new kitchen!!!

Isn't she beautiful?

another angle of the beauty that is now my very own kitchen.
sigh. i'm so happy. bigger sigh.

Look What's Inside of Me

So, there is a delightful little bundle of joy growing ever so rapidly inside my belly.  She is a movin' and a shakin' all night and blissfully asleep during the day.  This does not make for a restful night, but it feels pretty cool when she moves her little body around.  I am so looking forward to when she kicks me in the chest and her foot gets caught between my ribs and I have to push it out manually...because apparently that is going to happen...  I need to stop reading baby books....

Here's a sneak peak at her first baby pictures... 

Adam is worried that she is going to have his nose...hmmm... 

I love the nose...I will also love plastic surgery if she gets her dad's nose...just sayin'

This is her little butt...it looks like she's wearing a diaper...
already an overachiever...

Ahhh...the Christmas Craft Fair

My mom and I had a fabulous time at the Tonopah Christmas Craft Fair selling our wonderful handmade wares.  Here are some pics of our tables and goodies we sold:
