That. Just. Happened.


And I still can’t believe it did.  Really.  Can someone pinch me?  Because somehow our kitchen has been featured in a national magazine.  That you can actually buy.  On newsstands.  And online.

This whole dream started back in April when I was contacted by Better Homes and Gardens to feature our kitchen renovation in their Special Interest Publication, Real-Life Kitchens & Baths.  They were putting together a new column that featured blogger remodels and helpful tips they learned throughout the process.  Although I didn't count out the fact that I could possibly be getting punk’d, I jumped at the amazing opportunity.

Fast-forward to this past weekend, and picture me staring in disbelief at this...



Absolutely cray cray.  {That means crazy, Mom. ;)}

The full article also featured two other remodels.  Both of these gorgeous redo's were bathrooms, and they are definitely worth a look-see!  You can find their blogs here and here.


And, of course, a big, huge thank you to Maria Charbonneaux who wrote the article!
