The Kitchen is Finished!

We have been wanting to make some changes in the kitchen since we moved in. We finally decided if we are going to do it, we needed to do it so we will have time to enjoy it. I liked the way our kitchen looked before, but the black countertops and tile never looked clean and made the small space seem even smaller. So here are some pics!

I made the curtains from burlap and ring clips. Less than $10 and really easy!
We didn't paint or change the cabinets. Just countertops, sink, floor and backsplash. We are loving it!

Kari's Baby Shower

I can't believe baby Kari and Derek's baby Cora will be here in less than a month!
Rachel and I hosted a shower for Kari a few weeks ago and here are some pics.
Kari is the one in the pretty flower dress. I had to point her out because you can hardly even tell she is pregnant from the front or back! Rachel in the blue and Jessica in the black are also expecting!
Rachel and I made a few finger foods and I made the cupcakes which turned out really cute and so good. I found the recipe on Pinterest. I also saw these little yarn pom poms on a blog and made them for the decorations.

Found the punch on Pinterest too. It is made from Rasberry Sherbert, 7 UP and a frozen pink lemonade. Everyone loved it.
Me and the mommy to be.
Kari ended up using the yarn pom poms as her mobile. Isn't her nursery adorable?!! She painted that cute picture on the wall. She is so crafty and will have so much fun doing those kinds of things with her little girl :)
