It’s the end of an era.
And right now, I’m trying to decide if I wrote that about Friday Night Lights, which we finished watching yesterday, or about my youth, because my weekend basically consisted of grocery shopping, watching TV on the couch, cleaning the house, and worst of all, getting immense pleasure from doing all of these things. Send help, it’s all happening way too fast.
In other news, remember when our kitchen looked like this?
And now, it has pretty hardwoods,
streaky shiny stainless appliances, the most beautifully white farmhouse sink and dun dun dun dun… speckly sparkly clean white countertops! Every time I go in our kitchen I do this annoying this where I gasp and yell something obnoxious like “Our countertops are perfect!” I’m sure it will never get old. Now alls we have to do is install the backsplash and the kitchen remodel will be officially complete. Life is good when your kitchen is pretty.
And a future apology for being extra annoying on Instagram by not only posting food pictures but for those food pictures to be taken atop our countertops. Would it be weird if “will this look good under my plate?” was a top concern when we were trying to pick a countertop pattern?
I’d like to give you a description of what we did on Friday night, but it was something like A) Give away Nuggets tickets, B) Change into sweatpants and C) Eat a large bowl of pasta. But hey, I cooked dinner so I call that an accomplishment. Saturday morning, Joey chose a new coffee shop for us to try and I guess I should let Joey pick new coffee shops for us more often because I loved this one! Not only was it sunny and quiet inside — Denver doesn’t rise till 10 AM on the weekends — but EMPANADAS AND POPTARTS. I debated eating breakfast at home before but I’m so glad we didn’t. Fresh baked empanadas and poptarts for life!
I spent the afternoon with Jenn at a jewelry party. I resisted buying anything while we were there but I am seconds away from buying a necklace I don’t need — but when do you ever need a necklace? — now that I’ve had a chance to really inspect the catalog.
Sunday looked like this. It also looked like a trip to the gym, a sudden spurt of cleaning energy where we dusted, swept, mopped, scrubbed and wiped everything but our bathroom because ew, no one likes cleaning the bathroom! Joey and I recently had a conversation about how we remember our parents cleaning the house every weekend which led to us asking ourselves “wait, should we be cleaning our house every weekend?” I’m nowhere near ready for an every weekend house cleaning commitment, but I’m not gonna lie, having a clean house feels pretty good. Until a skunk sprays in your backyard.
We ended Sunday with The Theory of Everythinng and look, Stephen Hawking’s life is INCREDIBLE and Eddie Redmayne did an amazing job, but that movie is just kind of boring. And the lighting was so weird and distracting. Tell me what you did this weekend! But only if it was equally low-key and boring as what I did 🙂

Your kitchen remodel looks great! I love those countertops!
Thanks, Amanda! Tackling the backsplash this weekend and I’m only slightly terrified. I am so not handy…
I did my own tile backsplash once – it wasn’t as hard as it might seem. Good luck! xx
Phew, that makes me feel better!
