The Kitchen...

Ansley turned 4 on Thursday. I cannot believe my baby is 4! For her birthday I had to get her this new kitchen from Target. Yes, she already had a kitchen, but not one that matched her room as well as this one, and I am THAT crazy... Since Curtis is out of town, my friend Emily offered to help put the kitchen together with me. I mean, how hard can it be right!? Let's just say if Emily had not have been there I would still be doing it. If I can ever review this thing on Target.com I have a lot to say!!! Just a word of advice for anyone looking at kitchen purchases- buy a pre-assembled plastic one! Or at least make sure your husband is around to help you put it together.
Here I am at the beginning. This was "pre-assembly", only like 17 steps of that...



And here is Emily, she was having a GREAT time! Can you tell!?


Half way there! By the way Curtis, you are never leaving town again without putting the birthday presents together!




Look how cute it is though!? Totally worth it!? I am still deciding. I'll let you know when my hand is fully recovered from the craziness that was the teeny tiny screws, and my inexperience with a screw driver or an electric drill... And I don't know what is on my shirt! It's bugging me though.

Thanks Emily! I owe you!

That was really confusing. You would have laughed at me. I was looking at Emily's blog, then I checked some other ones, then I went to yours. I thought I had clicked on Emily's again and I was crazy! I am glad I am not, this time.

Your belly looks really cute. I didn't like it when people told me that, but yours really does.

It was great to see you last week. I always get such a kick out of Ansley. I am really glad you got the kitchen put together.

Hmm, I am not sure Craig would be any better at putting one of those together than I would be. Although, he did assemble and entire l-shaped computer desk, so he might have a little more experience.

Look at your cute little baby bump! I can't wait to do your maternity photos!
