Race to baby... Taking on a Kitchen renovation 14 weeks before our due date...EEK!

We're 26 weeks pregnant!!...And because life is not adventurous enough, we decided to completely redo our living space and kitchen - a project that is anticipated to take about 3 months. Watch this space for the race to the finish and to find out what comes first...a new kitchen, or a baby! :)

Day 0

We moved out of the living space of the house and used the time off over the holidays to pack up the kitchen (which is more work than you might think!).

We also packed some bags and moved in with Aakshi and Kunal who were kind enough to open their house and their lives to all the madness we bring with us. #grateful

This is what the house looks like as we were moving out at about 6 pm in the evening on Monday, 1/16/2017

Former formal living room...and one nervous dog!

Former breakfast nook and kitchen
How outdated is that kitchen!?!

All these spaces are being redone in a big way. I'm hoping I'll be able to track the progress of the project, as well as the pregnancy as we move along.

Day 1

Check those tools out mama!

10:00 am

Day 1 and the demolition crew was already taking stuff apart in the kitchen when we stopped by on our way to school around 8:45 am. Nobody appreciates tools better than boys under the age of 5. Sammy was super happy to see a dump truck parked in his driveway, and get a view of tools, shovels, ladders, large hammers and hard hats. He made sure to tell his teachers exactly what he saw as soon as he got to school! More updates to come towards the end of the day.
