Kitchen Progress

I wanted to share with you guys some pictures of our kitchen progress so far.

We are still waiting for our new fridge, but I am so excited about what we've done so far!

This first pic is some really cute accessories.  I this little lamp soo much!  I got it at Hobby Lobby for 50% off!!!!

The little canvas is one that I purchased from Flea Market Trixies Etsy shop... so cute!

You can also see... sorta... my little fish, Bueno in his pretty new home!

Just another shot because I just love this stuff!!!

You can also see the new countertop in this pic.  It's a granite look laminate... ?... I think that's what it was called.  Anyway... I love it!!!!
This set of adorable paintings were done by Christina at Signs of Obsession... love them!!!!

I added a cute mirror that I also got at Hobby Lobby for 50% off.
This set of 4 canvases are so cute!  They have a vintage, sorta 50's look that I love!

I got them at The Christmas Tree Shop for... are you ready for this... $4.99!!!!!  I kid you not!!!!

I also added some super cute hooks that are, again, from Hob Lob for 50% off!
This is a shot of some of the wall decor that I added to the breakfast room area.  I love the way the mirror reflects the candles when they are lit.
Here is a peek at the new cabinets.  They are stock cabinets from Home Depot in Chai Spice.  I love the color and style of them... and they were 20% off!!!!
Here's our new tile floor that hubby laid on a diagonal.  We decided to add a darker brown tile here and there for more interest.  I love it!!!!  He did such a great job!!!

Thanks for checking in!  I hope you enjoyed the brief tour of our new kitchen done on a budget!

Ok, so I don't usually come on here and rave about products.  However, when I come across something that is simply amazing, I feel the need to share with my buds here!  Hee hee!

The Prince and I were wandering through Walmart the other day and came across the InStyler.  He said, "isn't that that thing you want?"

Shocked and amazed that he actually had at some point paid attention to what I said, I replied, "yes, yes it is!"

He suggested that I get it while we were there.  I had been watching the info-mercials and wanting this gadget for a while now, but didn't feel that I could justify the cost. 

Well, his suggestion what justification enough for me!!!  Hee hee!

So I tried this amazing gadget out this afternoon, and OH MY GOSH!!!!  It actually did what it promised to do!!!!

I have very difficult hair, that drives me nutso!  It's very think, coarse and wavy.  I have spent the better part of my adult life trying to find a product that made it easy for me to control this hair!  I think I've found it!!!!

Seriously, if you have an opportunity to purchase this product, I definitely suggest you do so!!!

Check it out in the Amazon doo-hickey on the right!
