Kitchen Progress II

Well, we've had minimal progress since the last time I posted about our kitchen, but it's already making quite a difference!  We started our kitchen backsplash right after Christmas and had all of the tiles up in just over a week.  We were feeling very accomplished at that point.  Then we found out we were expecting and this momma crashed!

We look at it almost every night and go, "We really need to finish the backsplash...".  Truth is people, I'm just too exhausted to work on it, plus the adhesive scent and my hound dog pregnancy smelling capabilities do not jive.  But, as the second trimester looms VERY near, I keep promising Taylor that a grouted backsplash is just around the corner!

Wanted to share our tiny progress with you...

Here is the kitchen the last time I posted here (note: the laminate backsplash is still intact along the right counter).

And here is the kitchen today...

We chose plain white subway tiles.  Like I said, the progress has been minimal, but even just having the tiles up drastically changes the look of the entire space!

These puppies are up next.  The plan is to replace all of the outlets (most are caked with grime) and cut tiles to fit around them before grouting.

Good news is that the BFF is moving back to Tulsa!  She is generally the wind beneath my wings when it comes to projects because she is very motivational, so we should see a spike in productiveness in the coming months:)


  1. Girl! Kitchen is looking oh so fine. Subway tile makes a BIG difference. Do not underestimate its' power. :) And I know a lot of elbow grease went into that...so great work you two! Can't wait to meet your BFF in real life!
