The Remodel Continues…

We are BIG Dave Ramsey followers and true believers in paying CASH for things, especially big things – like remodeling our kitchen. Back in February we started working on our kitchen. Click here for the re-cap. We put up tile backsplash, new countertops, replaced a cabinet, mounted a new microwave, and put in a new stove to match! It was looking great and we both REALLY wanted to keep going, but the cash flow ran dry and we knew we needed to save up some more.

So, a few months, a few things sold on craigslist, and a garage sale later, we purchased a brand new dishwasher! I’m so excited!! Our old dishwasher totally grossed me out! I’d run a load and go to unload it and find food particles stuck to cups. Ewwww! Why even bother with a dish washer if it isn’t even going to WASH your dishes?!?! Not only does this one look great, it WORKS GREAT and that’s what really matters to me!

Well, what to you think?? I can’t wait to get some Leap Frog magnetic Alphabet Letters up there for Cori! :) Won’t a new dishwasher just make learning even more fun?!?

So, the next big purchase is a new refrigerator. That may take FOREVER to save up for, but I don’t think we will be moving out of this “glorious” condo any time soon so bring on the saving and bring on a new fridge!! :)

Until next time…

We did Dave Ramsey last year at church and I loved it! WE're still trying to get some things "in order" but we really enjoyed his teachings!
