Weekend Perks

This weekend had so many "perks" I can't even stand it!  Let me count the ways...

1.  UK is in the Sweet Sixteen.  Amen.

2.  Today is the first day of Spring 2011.  
I echo his sentiments.
3.  I had a three-day weekend.

4.  I painted my tootsies the most gorgeous shade of Pink Diamond by Essie.  Love.

5.  Um.  Do I even need words to tell you about this?  {I will say that I contemplated posting from the floor of the soon-to-be kitchen just so I could admire their hard work.  B and Mike, I LOVE YOU!}  I can finally see the stove sink countertops microwave dishwasher light at the end of the tunnel.

Refridgerator will go up against wall on left.  Dishwasher will go next to that.  Sink will be installed under window. 
Same shot, different angle.
Microwave will be installed underneath middle cab.  Oven will be centered beneath that.  Two cabinets will sandwich the oven (yet to be installed).
6.  The caketress, my mom, sent over six oversized cupcakes which did not help at all with the I-need-to-get-in-shape-for-my-10-year-reunion diet.
7.  I went to the Gap Clearance Center with a very Perky friend.  I found this super cutie elephant shirt el cheapo.
Papa K, he's totally pointing out deer prints here.  Aren't you proud?!
8.  About that Perky friend {which requires an entirely separate post} - she has a Perky {also extremely cute AND well-behaved} kid that looks like this:
Oh ma word, those eyes!!!!
9.  We're in the process of another home improvement.  Very early stages.  But exciting {for us!} nonetheless.

10.  I didn't go to school once.  Second weekend in a row!  I'll be accepting pats on the back all night.

 Happy Sunday!  I have three long, full weeks ahead of me until Spring Break.  Uggggggh!

I girlfriend and I were in Target this week and saw the Essie nail polish for the first time. Do you like it? She got a cool color, I refrained. Kind of regret not getting a pop of spring color for myself!

~Love the kitchen! Can't wait to see the "after" photos (were there "befores" posted?) What's the next project? Looks fun! My #1 love and I spent 2 years, yep, TWO years remodeling our entire house before we moved in. Well worth the wait, stress, and money!
~Becks is waaaaay too cute!
~Life's too short, enjoy the cupcake. You look fabulous!

Love the kitchen, the polish and that cute elephant shirt with the adorable little boy inside. We have three more weeks until spring break too. I don't know if I can manage it. Give me strength!
