It's Friday, Let the Work Begin!

It shouldn't be shocking that we are behind on the house and boy are we behind on the house, so this weekend will be all about work!  At least it is a fun kind of work.

Before house talk here is a recovery update.  I went to my follow up visit with the surgeon on Wednesday.  In case you missed last week's post, I had my gallbladder removed after a trip to the ER a couple of weeks of the reasons we are behind on the house...we lost quite a few work days.  Anyway, the doctor said I was doing great...I can go back to exercising and I can work on the house again.  I just need to listen to my body because I won't be fully healed for 6 weeks.

She also told me that the tenderness I have been feeling in my lower abdomen is the deeper tissue incisions healing.  I was happy it wasn't a sign of a problem.  I found out that not only was my gallbladder fully distended and full of gallstones, it was also full of fluid.  She confirmed there was one large stone stuck in the duct and that was the source of most of the pain I was feeling the night I went to the ER.  As I told you last week I am viewing the surgery as a blessing.  It is scary to be in an urgent care center and have the doctors tell you you need surgery when you have no idea there is anything wrong with you; but on the other side I am feeling so much better!  It's amazing how much more conscious you are of yourself when you go through something like that.  It really impacts you thinking.

Okay, now back to fun house plans.  If you remember this post you know the inspiration for my kitchen color pallet came from this photo I found online. 

I am with going cream colored cabinets, khaki walls, gray counter tops, a white subway tile back splash, and this awesome wall mount faucet.


I am in love with this faucet.  I thought about re-routing the plumbing so that I could have a more updated faucet on the counter like newer homes have.  I am so glad I didn't because I think this is really going to look great with the subway tile and be very charming in my kitchen.

The cover of my Real Simple magazine for May reinforced my decisions.  Look...gray counter tops, subway tile back splash and a faucet that looks a lot to me like a wall mount faucet wanna be.  I am so in style.  Ha!

This weekend will consist of lots and lots of painting.  I am ready and excited to get back to work.  It's a good thing since the movers come a week from Sunday!  Yikes!  Send me extra energy.

And in case you were wondering, my love affair with chobani yogurt is continuing this week.

Ah, strawberry.  This one might be my favorite.

Have a wonderful Friday!  What are your weekend plans?
