Thankful Thursday - Fuzzy Birthday

 Happy 13th Birthday, Fuzzy!

Thankfuls...

1.     My dear sweet Fuzzy!  I can't believe that you are now 13 and officially a teenager!  WOW!  Time truly flies!  I am so happy that you still love to cuddle up with mommy, even as you are growing into a young man.  I love you, my sweet baby boy!

2.     My new kitchen is ordered!!!  Yeehaa!!!  I know that in a few weeks when my kitchen is demolished and we are in the middle of construction and sick of eating out, I will not be as ecstatic as I am now, but let me just revel in the anticipation of the completed project... fantasizing it just arrives - complete!  LOL

The cabinets are a plain honey maple, with very basic stainless hardware, to match our new appliances.  This is close to what it will be... mine will be a slightly warmer color.

The countertop is Corian, called Burnt Umber:

 with a molded sink in Vanilla, a slight off-white.

I can't wait!  I have hated this 1969 yellow and gold ugly kitchen since day one!!! Yay!

3.     My parents, without whom this kitchen remodeling would not be possible.  Nor would so many things in my life.  I am so truly blessed.  Each and every day.

4.     Coffee!  Ahhh.... I think it is helping my cough go away.  No, seriously... well that and...

5.     Emergen-C!  Definitely a wonderful product! 

Okie dokie...

Off to do 'mommy' type things! 

Have a wonderful day everyone!

be well,
Dawn

ps.  My kids LOVE pizza bagels!

Congrats on getting a new kitchen - but don't tell my wife, please! She desperately wants to remodel our kitchen. She's right - the room hasn't been altered since construction in 1892 - farm sink, low windows, no counters, no cabinets, awkward setup - but the $$$. lol

I like your choice of cabinet color, btw

Happy Birthday to Fuzzy!!!  Now you have a house full of teenagers!  I don't envy you that, but you do have some terrific kids.  I want to know howthey got that cat to sit still with a crown on it's head for that photo!!  I remember having a yellow kitchen-painited it white and added wallpaper with strawberries.  My one and only attempt at wallpapering!  Have a great weekend.

Happy Birthday to Fuzzy. Glad to hear he is back at school.

Yes, your cousin does look like you, or is it the other way round?

Having the new kitchen completed will be great. Having it done will be a nightmare, trust me, we went through it in November. But it will definitely be worth the hassle.

Hope you are soon feeling better.

I would love to remodel my kitchen...or the whole house for that matter!!!  Congrats on that, sounds beautiful!  You'll have to show us some pics when it's done so we can all be jealous!

Happy Belated Birthday to Fuzzy!  LOL..you are an official mom to a teenager.  Love your new cabinets and everything.  Is Corian actual granite?  I love the look of granite but I'm afraid I'd scratch it or drop something on it and break it the first day.  I'm so rough on stuff.  Can't wait to see your finished product.  HUGS Chris
