We have a very big project coming up in the very near future (!!!), and in preparation, we decided to start tackling some smaller things around the house that have been on the to-do list for a while.  The biggest of those was getting built-ins in our study.  Luckily we know an awesome contractor whose favorite thing to do on the side is custom cabinetry.  He previously did an entertainment unit in our basement.  Check it out, from bookcases to new built-ins, with shelves to the ceiling, double file drawers, and a new desk with a beautiful walnut top:

The old furniture has found a new home at Aunt Missy's, who practically acted like she won the lottery when we offered it to her!  As our Christmas presents to each other, B and I decided to upgrade all of our technology, so now there's a gorgeous new iMac filling up that center opening in the desk.

Now about that very big project coming up?  We should be breaking ground in just a few weeks on a 2 story addition to our house!  We knew when we bought the house we'd eventually want to expand it, and it took almost 16 years to getting around to doing it. Sharing a bathroom with a very big (and growing!) kid may have finally provided the inspiration we needed.  Here's a sneak peak at the plans.  Our current kitchen and dining room are being combined into one big kitchen (*swoon*), then we are adding a new dining room off the back - but it's such a big room that it will have a built in window seat on one side and a bar area on the other, with access to a new open air porch.  On the second floor will be our master bathroom, turning what we have into a master bedroom suite!  Can. Not. Wait!!!!
