Hey all, how’s your weekend treating you?  We’re busy busy with the Alma project kitchen remodel and the demo is done, now we’re getting ready to piece the new kitchen together.  There’s a lot of work ahead, cabinets and countertops and tile, oh my…   We have most of it under control and I should have a new kitchen to show you by mid-June, we’re all so excited!

Today is ‘best of the blogosphere’ day and Amanda and I team up every two weeks to bring you our favorite projects, ideas, and posts we spy out there in blogland.  Here’s the list, enjoy.
