Wedding kitchen

Well,  we did it!  Mr. Grassroofs and I recently tied the knot.  We had a wonderful party with 100 of our closest friends.  I don’t know how anybody has a bad time at their wedding- people were showering us with compliments and were perfectly content to do our bidding.  It was great.  The food was fantastic and the company was lovely.  Mr. Grassroofs did a fantastic job with the music.  We are eager to share some pictures with you when I get them back from our generous and wise photographer.

After things wound down with the nuptuals, we were able to put our wedding gifts right to use.  We registered at IKEA for a new kitchen.  Awesomeness ensued.

Charles’ cousin Jake came over and was very effective at the demolition portion of the project.  We wondered if Jake had some previous experience demolishing things.

We were glad to see the old, dated linoleum headed out.  Although, I am a little sad that I don’t have a dress with a pattern like that.

Another great friend of ours came by to help out.  Tim is a machine and has helped us out with more than a few of the jobs that make our house livable.

Look at those wooden counter tops! Aren’t they classy.  We do worry that the 80’s will call and want the countertops back, but we think we make a good case for trendy rather than retro.

Mr. Grassfroofs and our pal, Neal, looked very studious while they installed the doors and the interior components of the cabinets. There were some serious thoughts to be thunk about screws and slots and other things that sound inappropriate out of context.

Look how great these look! Fashionable and completely difficult to access (we installed drawer pulls the next day).  And, if you’ll take a minute to notice, my very important contribution- I put the leftovers on the new counter and even reheated some of them!  Way to go boys, but I don’t think you could have done it without me.
