Who's tired of hearing about us working on the kitchen? Not me!! Any time there's a bit of progress I'm a happy lady. This weekend Doug started doing the tiling... he got about half of it done, and let me tell you, I am loving it. We went with 3x6 basic white subway tiles from Home Depot and they look awesome. They are a warmer white that works well with the cabinetry color-- Cloud White.
We debated the grout line width for a while and decided to go with 1/16" spacers. Since the tiles are a bit rounded at the edges the grout lines will be a bit wider than 1/16" but still nice and tight... which I like. Doug totally blew me away with his tile expertise... the rows are nice and neat and spaced perfectly... which means I can go with a light grey grout-- just what I wanted.
And that was the weekend! Doug worked on the kitchen while I attempted to keep the kids out of trouble. Easier said than done :)
In other news, I've been eating/cooking sugar free this week ever since I found out that I've got gestational diabetes this time around. It's really not all that bad-- a lot of veggies, meat, eggs, cheese, and whole grains. With the arrival of each child I've had to adopt some interesting diets-- in the weeks after Caleb was born I had a pureed diet as my jaw was wired shut, with Emerson I ate dairy free for 6 months due to her allergies, and now-- a diabetic diet. Out of all three diets, eating sugar free is by far the easiest. I'll let you know how it goes...
After this I should really write a cookbook-- the dairy free, sugar free, pureed diet. Definitely a best seller :)
