We have a hole!!!! :)

Yayy!!! Finally broke ground!  I loved going to see our hole. hahaha.  I took some pics on Wednesday evening, and they were going to be pouring the basement walls on Thursday, so we are taking another ride by there tonight.  I am curious how far things got since Wednesday!  Now we both feel like it's actually real, and we are getting anxious because we really feel it'll be here in no time!  I will post pics sometime later this weekend.  Enjoy your Memorial Day Weekend everyone!! :)

Okay, so they aren't pictures of the house, but they are our Engagement Pictures we took this weekend!!!  I love them, and I felt like I had to share them with all of you!  We are the most recent pictures under "Kelsey & John" - enjoy! :)

John & I are going to take a ride past the house tonight, and see what they've done.  We believe they broke ground on Sat. 5/7 but it may have been sooner.  I just want to make sure I don't miss anything for pictures of the process!!

Need Your Opinion!!!!

Hi guys!!! I recently went to Lowe's to see what they had for backsplashes.  We opted to do this ourselves when we moved in, to save some money and to make it a little more personalized.  I know that we have 4" of the Tan Brown granite that we chose going up against the backsplash, but I found something I really love to put above that, and I want your opinion!  Fasade Silver Backsplash - if you click this link, it'll take you to the Lowe's website.  How do you think this would look with our Stainless Steele Appliances, Cherry Bordeaux Cabinets and Tan Brown Granite??  Has anybody else used this?  Do you think it'll be a pain in the butt to clean?  What are your thoughts?


**UPDATE - hgbaby sent me this photo of her kitchen.  It looks fab!!  I can see what you mean by saying that the silver seemed too bright against the appliances.  How did you compare the two?  Did they give you samples?  I love it!

Furnished Model Home :)

We went to the model on Saturday afternoon, and they were just finishing up the ribbon cutting ceremony.  I was like a little child when I went into the FURNISHED model!  It was so exciting to get the feel of how the house will be with everything in it!  Also, found some cute ideas that I really want to put to work. ;)  Enjoy the pictures below, and keep in mind our house will be flipped with the kitchen on the right when you walk in.
