The tile is up, y’all. It’s up on the wall. Technically, it’s been on the wall for a while now, but I’m just getting this post up now. Sorry ‘bout it. I picked the tile out a few weeks ago at Home Depot, and with everything else thrown in, our cart looked quite full. We grabbed everything we needed for this job all in one shot. Or so we thought.

Put a fork in it. The kitchen tile job is done. For a recap, here’s where the kitchen stood at the end of night one. With that part under our belt, it was time to grout. Before we mixed it up, we needed to check each space between the tiles for any thin-set that may have sneaked out while pressing the tile down. Each space needed to be clear to absorb the grout we’d scrape on.

When I envision my dream kitchen, it generally involves white cabinets, a giant island (maybe in the next house) and a deep, big sink (also in the next house). That vision never involved under cabinet lighting, but now that I have sweeeeet under cabinet lighting, I can’t live without it. It started one day last month, when an Amazon package came to the house for Matt. He opened it and explained that it held the contents to a new under cabinet lighting system.

I know what you’re thinking. “If I hear the words ‘new counters’ from this girl one more time, I’m going to lose it.” I hear you. So… I’m done. The counters are done. I’m smiling from ear to ear. Check ‘em out. I’m in love. I know I say that about a lot of things in this house, but these counters are different. (Kisses fingertips in an Italian-esque flourish.) I really love them.
