Kitchen...almost done

Yay, for KitchenAid counter depth frigs...our kitchen is still in the works but is looking exceptionally cute I must say!  Our floor is done and we got some tile work done.  It is getting there.  Here are a few updated pictures of our almost finished kitchen.  My farmhouse sink is the best purchase yet!

This is our first Spring in our home and I love seeing all the things I missed out on last year!  Who knew that apple trees grew flowers before producing apples...okay a lot of you probably knew...we didn't.  They are gorgeous!  Just sitting pretty all day long.  There is a nook back where we live where the dogs roam free.  Today was a day!  After work we rode bikes and then walked the doggies...O'Malley and Zara were in heaven back there...running wild.  Do not live life on a free like a wild animal!

Grillin' season

It is finally getting warm enough to grill out!  I know I should be posting updated pictures of our home but I am waiting on our Kitchenaid counter depth frig...should be here any day!  My good friend Courtney Crozier got to be a contestant on the Biggest Loser.  She has lost over 235 lbs!  We actually met in line for an audition a few years back and basically fell in love with each other!  We have been great friends ever since.  I have been watching her change week by week and have not been doing a thing about my weight.  A few weeks ago I decided it was time to make a change and start working out and not constantly be eating my yummy homemade goods!  Here are a few pics of some of my delicious creations!  All under 320 calories.
