I don't know if words can describe how awesome the new kitchen is. And my favorite part, as strange as it my sound, is the lights. We used to have crappy lighting (a ceiling fan and another light over the table) which is now the ceiling fan and four recessed lights, plus the lights under the cabinets. And it makes such a difference!!!
I think we are going to replace the kitchen table, but hopefully with something similar. This one just looks big and out of place and really doesn't seem to like the new kitchen (the storage piece on both benches broke during the renovation--it's a sign!!).
And for those of you who don't know me (or don't know this much about me), here's an example of just how anal I can be. And yes, I've been compared to the psycho dude in 'Sleeping With the Enemy' more than once in my life...although I've gotten better with the bath towels since I met Ethan :-)
And while the picture doesn't quite do it justice, I also have a problem with bulk shopping. As in, yes, that is 12 boxes of cereal on the top shelf (1 is hidden) courtesy of Amazon Grocery and an awesome sale at Shoppers Food Warehouse. It's kind of tough to see all the Easy Mac and Kraft Bistro, but there's a lot of those too ;-) And my boys eat Ramen like they're a bunch of poor college kids, and I hope that keeps up so we might actually be able to afford to feed them in their teenage years.
