You Heard It Here: It’s Time — 31 Comments

    • Hi Janie,
      LOL. I’ll let you know as soon as the granite, tile and crown molding go in! You’ll hear the dinner bell!

  1. How exciting!! I know all about delayed gratification. We did without a lot of things so I could stay home with our kids. I lived in a house with orange carpet for ten years before we were able to replace it. What a glorious day that was when the new neutral color went on the floors!!

    Your new kitchen looks awesome. Congratulations, and when it’s done, I’m sure you will be glad you waited until you could get exactly what you wanted.

    • Hi Roz,
      Wow, your ten years with orange carpet sounds a lot like my 23 years of avocado green kitchen! I can relate to your glorious day! I’m feeling it now!

  2. Love the kitchen. Looks fabu!
    I waited until I was 32 years old to get married. Didn’t have kids until mid thirties. I may have been a new trend back in my day, but I always felt about a decace behind. DOn’t get me wrong, I’m thrilled I did it my way, suspect marrying anyone would have been a disaster before DH.
    The only downside is now I’m going to be an old grandma!

    NOt complaining though. I’m seriously happy.

    • Hi Lynne,
      I got married kinda young, but still waited to have our daughter. No regrets, even if I will be an old grandma. I guess everything happens in good time. Kitchens and grandbabies included.

  3. Wow! Fabulous! I can remember the old kitchen and this is absolutely gorgeous. You’re going to love spending time in there, cooking, talking, maybe even writing while the rest of the house sleeps. ; )

    • Hi Roben,
      Thanks! Yes, I’m loving it, that’s for certain. I’m pretty sure I’ll be living in that kitchen and I’m more than fine with it! Been oohing an ahhing as the granite goes in today.

  4. Looks gorgeous – big enough to throw a ball in there, now.

    I’d want to sleep in there, too. Or at least break in those cold granite countertops with a teaming hot man.

    • Hi Beverly,
      I think I could probably fit a ping pong table in the entry! Not that I would. LOL. But there’s definitely room in there to congregate. Or consummate. LOL. Will have to inform my DH about your idea about breaking in the countertops!!!

  5. Beautiful kitchen Deanne!! A great kitchen to a woman is like a gigantic garage to a man. I can hear you beaming with pride. Love it!! Be sure to post pictures when the granite goes in!

    • Hi Charlene,
      Thank you! I’ll post next month when it’s all done. Yep, I totally get the garage to a man = kitchen to a woman. Although I wouldn’t mind a cool garage either.

  6. Gorgeous kitchen, Dee. I think the things we wait for are so much sweeter when they finally become a reality. Can’t wait to see the finished product!

    • Hi Jana,
      Thank you! The old kitchen was about 40 years old! We finally made the decision to go for it. Some times you just have to do things for yourself and enjoy life instead of worry about it. (I tend to worry!) Trust me… this is VERY sweet!! Can’t wipe the smile off my face! Finished product next month! Stay tuned!

  7. Ooooh! Sparkly new kitchen!! My husband and I have proven our ability to live YEARS in a home our realtor sold us as a tear down. Sadly, if we’re on the Dee J. Adams kitchen reno plan, I still have 13 years to go before I get a new kitchen. :}

    • Hi Sam,
      God willing you are NOT on the Dee J. Adams plan!! Hopefully NO ONE is on that plan! LOL. I predict a new kitchen for you in the next 5 years. How’s that? You wouldn’t believe my appliance situation before the redo. Seriously, I’ll tell you about it the next time I see you. You’ll be horrified.

    • Hi Rhian,
      Wow! 25 years for a honeymoon! I hope your hubby went first class! Hawaii is one of our favorite vacations. I think since you waited 25 for the first one, you need to make up for it with one every year from now on. LOL. (Now I’ll go hide from your hubby. )

    • Hi Christine,
      Thanks! We thought it was time too. We figure the universe will work itself out. Sometimes you have to say, just do it. (And if you’re Nike, you say it all the time. LOL.)

    • Hi Toni,
      Thanks! It is absolutely a dream come true. Every morning I have to pinch to myself to make sure I’m not dreaming. I get lost in IKEA. So many beautiful rooms! (And a couple of stinkers too. LOL.)

    • Hi Julie,
      You can’t be jealous! You have a gorgeous kitchen! LOL. It’s crazy though, right?! So much fun! Miss you!
