Here is a peek at my counters..

You cant really tell the true color of the counters because I used a flash. I just think they are beautiful and shinny. Now I just have to paint and put new floors in and my kitchen will be complete.

Here is a better pic of the color.
Now onto other news.. Dale was to leave tomorrow but because of a mix up with shots he will have to stay in country for maybe 2 more weeks. Thats kinda good news and bad news all at the same time. The good news is he gets to be here for Shelly's Birthday and the bad new is that he wont get back until the kids are back in school. That means he misses their whole summer break. What a bummer for the kids and Dale. It also means I might move my EYSY opening until April 15Th now. I just don't want to be distracted with business while he is still here.
Tootles and I hope everyone is having a grand day in their neck of the woods.

The counter looks great.

I'm sorry that Dale will miss the summer but I'm glad you got an extra couple weeks with him before he leaves. I can understand the anxiety though.. the sooner he goes the sooner he comes back, but then you don't want him to leave just yet either!

Well, enjoy your time together and make the most of it! :)

They look awesome, they are really close to what I want. We both have good taste. :)

It is a mixed bag for sure when deployments get delayed. You are happy to have them around a little longer but it just delays the inevitable and now you've lost what little summer you had.

Dan left the country today, so now I don't even get my nightly phone call.:(

Love the counter tops. I really like the edges! :)

I'm glad you get to have Dale for two more weeks, but bummed he'll miss the summer break.

Holy heck! When is Shelly's birthday again? I'll get a card in the mail to her.

What a beautiful kitchen! I would love to "own" a house - maybe one day. Let me know if you need anything before OR after Dale leaves - I still need a shopping tour down here in Anchorage :)

Hope Dale has an uneventful deployment.
