This is where I spent the last week, sitting in a lounger, drink in my hand and basking in the sun. I didn't realize how much I really needed some R&R, until our plane landed and all my stress and worries dripped off of me like rain on a tin roof. We had a fun time with our friends, the guys fished their booty's off while the girls got massaged, mani'd and pedi'd (booked without us knowing it by our guys!). We were able to take a boat out to a private island and do some of the best snorkeling ever. It was amazing. It was so good to get away.
Making some progress on the remodel. My garage is packed to the gills with the new appliances. The delivery dude dropped them right in front of my washer and dryer. I have no access to do laundry. My prayers have been answered.
Update photos coming soon.

Went and saw the Sex @ the City movie this weekend and I was totally unimpressed. I guess it was one of those movies where you hear all the hype and think it is going to be phenomenal. I mean I liked it, but I kept waiting for something big to happen. I packed tissues in my pocket because from what I heard it was a tear jerker. I never choked up once. Yes, there was some pretty funny parts, but I found it almost boring at times. At least I got to have brunch and some much needed girlfriend time before the movie, so that was fun. We all walked away with the same impression, so it wasn't just me.

This is what I came home to. HELLS YEAH! Cabinets, gone. Counters, gone. Brick cooktop, gone. I am assuming that in the 1950's they didn't think to put water and electrical BEHIND the walls (or the builder who built this house didn't). Its a joke. The plumber laughed his ass off and I think I saw dollar signs in his eyes.
Buh-bye brick. The funny thing about this brick is when I first looked at this house I LOVED the brick. I loved how the oven was built into the brick and how it was old and rustic looking. Well, if I would have looked closer I would have noticed that the size of the oven was only fit to cook for Hobbits. This is the smallest oven I have ever seen. I had to buy special small cookie sheets to use in it. The other side of the brick is/was our fireplace. When using it you had to pick whether you wanted to be warm or you wanted smoke inhalation. No bueno.
All brick, GONE. Wood floors, soon to be beautiful bamboo flooring, GONE. Look at the dinky hot water heater, soon to be replaced with energy efficient tankless water heaters
As much as I am excited to see stuff happening, living in a construction zone blows. We have a makeshift kitchen with a Rubbermaid container of food and a microwave. The fridge is all the way across the house so eating here takes stamina and a travel guide. We have been eating out since Sunday. I am already sick of eating out of styrofoam container on my lap while sitting in a beach chair.
