Woo Hoo!

Kenny was right!

When I saw the backsplash I just about "pee'd my britches"!!!!

I absolutely love it!
Here's a sneak peek......they are grouting it next week, but WOW, what a difference a backsplash makes! We used the same slate that we have on the floor and had them cut it into smaller pieces.....I just kept going back into the kitchen last night to look at it.

I love, Love, LOVE the way it turned out. I think it keeps the kitchen from looking TOO modern and helps it meld into the rest of our house. We also still have a few rounded corner shelves to be installed which will happen sometime after the grouting.
Here is a close-up.

I've also started reading the book, "The Other End of the Leash" and I'm liking what I've read so far. I didn't get too far, because Thursday night, with all the storms, I had "Big L" laying and trembling on my head for most of the night.....yes, he also suffers from "scaredy storm syndrome".

This is where he went to "rest" after he greeted me when I got home. Such a funny boy!

He certainly loves his "pile o' pillows"!

Oh yeah, and the pool motor........quiet as a mouse!!!

I am sooooo happy this morning!!!



  1. Hey Tammy...I think Tag and Lonnie would love to share the same sofa and pillows! hahaha!!! And, you're absolutely right (or, should I say that Kenny was?) about the backsplash. It warms everything up and does make it feel 'older'. Really awesome looking! Have a great weekend!

  2. Oohhhh the backsplash looks AMAZING!!!!!!!! Ooh la la you are going to loove being in your kitchen now!! :D
    Are you guys having flooding there? Have been thinking of you all week!

  5. Tammy, It's beautiful!!! You're right about it taking off some of the modern edge. I am so glad everything in your life is going so great right now. Must be good Karma!
