Well! Today I made a big purchase today! I put my 50% down for our kitchen project. I slightly shook while handing it over to the contractor, it is a lot of money but at the same time I'm really excited about the project. I was able to take home samples today of the countertop options and the cabinet colors that I am really liking. I am pretty set on the cabinet colors, the counter top colors are what is really a hard decision, there are so many to choose from. I now get to spend a few hours looking thru them and deciding what I'd like to go with.
