Nothings hotter than a man putting a kitchen in your minivan! That's right the crappy kitchen is on it's way out! Well sorta. We bought the cabinets and now we're broke. But it's started!
Do you believe an entire kitchen fit into our van? That's the whole dang thing! (Ikea Nexxus Birch, with some sweet aluminum and glass cabinets mixed in.) Of course now I'm mad for budgeting. If husband throws something excessive in the grocery cart I'll yell "Hey, those are the handles for 3 drawers you just wasted!". Bless the dudes heart he's working all weekend (architects are still paid hourly) to get some extra cash to refinish what we think and pray is hardwood under 2 layers of linoleum. But he's actually happier than I've seen him awhile. He loves home projects and we don't always have the cash or time to do them.
Lastly, here's a picture of daughter blowing bubbles with "Gamp'a!". She adores Gamp'a and calls out for him whenever she is forced to do something she doesn't like. Like go in a highchair, or a crib, or just about freaking anything now that she is almost 2.
