We did sand and stain the cabinets a mahogany color which really helped tone down the turquoise counters and bring our kitchen out of the 80's. (Here is the only pic I have right now, Ladmo helping butch install the new stove) We had a perfectly fine cook top that had a ton of storage underneath and a wall oven unit. Well our friend Josh's parents redid their kitchen and had a nice stove that they didn't want to go to waste so they offered it to us! I jumped at it, because that meant I would now have TWO ovens! Woot!
As it turns out, cook top stoves are much wider then a regular slide in range. So when Butch(my step dad) cut it out it left us with a good 5" gap on one side. We have plans to eventually redo the kitchen, so I wasn't to upset by it. So Butch put a piece of wood in the open area... (note you can see how the mahogany cabinets look against the turquoise counters in this pic)We decided we would cover up the wood with some tiles and make a little hot plate area of sorts next to the stove. I think it looks fine and will get us through until we can really reno the kitchenThis was our ghetto reno for the weekend :)

Tonight I am thinking that I will shampoo the carpets and maybe take a crack at shampooing the "princess chair" Our chair and half and ottoman. I may even do a second coat of paint in the bathroom, I feel like it needs another. We shall see.
Tomorrow Butch (my step dad) is coming over to help us get our drip system in working order before it gets to hot out. Micah and I also want to conquer the master closet, get it cleaned out and maybe even up and running! I also have lunch plans thrown into the mix and babysitting little miss Olivia! Cant wait!
Nothing to much planned for Sunday, Ladmo and I have puppy school at 3. Our new teacher is super awesome, Ladmo is responding to commands a lot better. Now if we could just get him to quit biting us and eating his own poop we'd be golden!

I had to go to Buy Buy Baby on Saturday to shop for three different babies, and I did browse around as well. I fell in love with this super cute bedding. I love that it is gender neutral, I really don't want to find out the sex of what we are having when that time comes and Micah really does...we shall see... At any rate, I thought this could be cute for a boy or girl
So there you have it folks, I have baby fever and already have a diaper bag and bedding all picked out. I am sure if Micah is reading this post he has already fainted or gone running for the hills! LOL

I have had a crazy week at work and was just to tired to make dinner last night. I asked him if he was up for taking on dinner. On the meal plan our options were chicken picadillo stuffed peppers or sweet and sour shrimp. He chose the shrimp.
This dish has a lot of steps, but OH MY GOD it is soooo worth it. I was so impressed with the hubs last night!
Here is the recipe he followed
Here is a pic, sorry its a bit dark.

A couple of my lady friends told me they are restricted from commenting...and sure enough I had messed with my comments and thought I had set it to only allow people who followed my blog...(I have been getting weird comments from Japan???) As it turns out I had it set that no one could comment.
Sooooooooooo things should be back to normal, I *think*

This weekend should be pretty low key. We have no real plans. I work at Definitely Debra's tomorrow, and that's about all the plans we have. We for sure need to hit the grocery store, but I need to do my weekly meal planning first. I am hoping to maybe start working on the hutch again and see how far I get with that :)
