Christmas Break& My New Kitchen

So Christmas break has come and gone (as of tomorrow morning at 8 am when class starts again. yuk!) Christmas was fabulous and it was really the first Christmas Colin and I spent together because he was in India last year over Christmas.

Colin totally went over the budget we agreed on and it was awesome! Love you babe. We had a lot of sitting around to do over the break and it got pretty boring.

I decided that I hate winter. I love the pretty snow but why does it have to be so freaking cold outside so I'm stuck inside with nothing to do.

So we decided to start a project and it really just turned into my project because Colin had to work. I painted our kitchen cabinets. It was quite the accomplishment for me considering I am usually pretty lazy when it comes to thing like that.

I think it turned out fabulous and I am very proud of my work. And I only obtained minor injures in the process. As I was on a stool painting a top cabinet I was telling Colin, "I know you don't think I am very capable of things like this, but I am." and right as I was saying that the stool slipped and I came crashing down.

I got a nasty bruise on my knee but it was pretty funny. So I know you are wondering what the kitchen looks like now. You are so lucky because I am going to show you. Here are some before and after pictures to satisfy your immense curiosity.

During:



After:

Yay! I think it looks so much brighter and happier!


Also here is a little treat for you. Our New Years wasn't anything too excited but I did get my New Year kiss from my sweetie.
(Colin hates Kissy pictures so don't tell him this is on here.)

i seriously love the cabinets! oh and guess what...everyone vetoed my green cabinets and now i kind of agree with them, so they will most likely be white when you see them next.
