We refinanced and now plan to stay for a while, though ultimately we'd still like to move to Katy, a community further west of here. I dream of chickens and maybe a cow, while Rob dreams of our boys playing football for Katy High School.
Since we are staying, we are now in the process of getting things fixed (most of which we realized were broken while the house was on the market) and updating things we always wanted to do. Foundation and pipes and pool issues aren't so fun to talk about, but you know what is? KITCHEN RENOVATION.
Turns out that Rob's uncle makes custom cabinets, so the plan is that he will come down in a few weeks with cabinets, and we have this fancy slab of granite I got at an amazing deal because it was the last one. We are tearing out a wall and some parts of walls and putting in a breakfast bar and just generally going hog wild. Because that's what you do when you are seven months pregnant.
You organize your closet; I renovate the kitchen.
Be sure that there are pictures to follow, but the main thing we are doing is taking out a sort of half-wall that divides the kitchen from the TV room. The counter will extend farther and make a breakfast bar. This is a terrible iphone photo, but you can envision with me that the wall is gone and there is a bar which these high chairs will gather round.
I am so excited! I started pinning to my Kitchen Fixin' board like crazy on Pinterest as we finalize what we are doing. You should probably follow along to see what we're up to. Here are a few looks at things we like.
This will mean fun new fixtures as well, so I am looking at pendant lights. I might make my own if I can find something fun that inspires me. These are the most beautiful things ever (from Cisco Home) but totally out of the question because of price.

Can't wait to have some actual photos of what we'll do to share with you. For now...just dreams and Pinterest.
