Happy New Year!

We had a great New Years Eve with some wonderful friends...the Nelson's. Since becoming parents in late September, Travis and I haven't gotten a chance to really "hang out" with the new family of 3 so we were excited to have them come to Galesburg for New Year's.
We ordered Applebee's Curbside to Go for dinner and the guys went to get it. Yum!
Carter watched Baby Einstein while we ate, but our couch ate him! :)
Then Carter and Misty talked all about the fun we'll have when she babysits on Wednesday. I don't know who's more excited.....wellllllllllllll....actually I do :)
The guys played some Wii and Josh finally let Travis win.
Then we played this great new game called Would You Rather...., hence the box! What a fun game! I highly recommend it to anyone/everyone!
The grown ups made it to midnight, but Carter tuckered out early and spend his first New Year's sleeping on our bed. He is really too cute!
We had a great time with the Nelson's and can't wait to get together again soon!

New Cupcake holder!

Several months mom baked cupcakes for my classroom. In order to keep Buddy out of them she had Travis put them in the oven. When I got home from work, I wanted some garlic bread. I turned the oven on 400 degrees to pre heat. After about 10 minutes I remembered there were cupcakes housed in plastic Tupperware containers in the oven. When I got to the oven the plastic was something out of a Halloween movie! There was plastic oozing all over and into a pool at the bottom of the oven. Needless to say the oven has been out of commission since. We have been dining on crock pot meals, microwavable dinners and eating out a lot....hence the weight gain :)

Monday I called Sears and several other places to get a replacement liner for our oven, however, they no longer make the oven or the parts for that oven. So the hunt for a new oven ensued. We looked all over and found the best deal at Lowes. Only here's the bestest part......MY wonderful, loving, and generous hubby decided if we have to buy a oven why not just bite the bullet and get all new appliances!!!! Wowie wow wow, this guy knows the path to a girl's heart!!!!

So today at 10AM on New Years Eve, Lowes delivered!

Goodbye old stove!

Helllllloooooooooooo Lowes!

This is Travis carrying in our new over the stovetop microwave.

We'll have to wait until we get futher into the kitchen remodel to mount and use. Right now the new microwave is in our basement.

These are the new appliances in the truck! I'm so excited!!!
The far right photo is of the Lowes man putting plastic wrap on the refridgerator. The new fridge is to tall to fit in the kitchen until we tear out the cabinets.

The only appliance currently going into use.....Yah HOOO!

A final goodbye!

The new refridgerator being unloaded to it's new temporary home...the garage.

The begining of our new kitchen! :) :) :)

Buddy wants to know "Where's the cupcakes?"
