Vomit

We are going to replace the kitchen counter tops in our "new" house. Today we went shopping with the contractor. Ouch. I'm pretty sure purchasing a granite quarry in Brazil would turn out to be an ace business venture. Someone is BANKING off of that racket.

Lordamercy...our kitchen is not big at all and it still amounts to a lahhhrge chunk of change. Perhaps I will begin a plasma donation schedule tomorrow or start picking up aluminum cans. Standing on the corner by the liquor store holding a sign "will work for granite" perhaps? Or there is always the hope that maybe almond color Formica will make a comeback real soon and we could just leave the kitchen as is. After all, they say styles are cyclical.

On the up side....it shore is gunna be purdy!!!

I hope formica comes back in vogue! Cause we have some hunter green hideous formica that I am guessing we won't be able to afford replacing anytime soon...

I think you contacted the WRONG contractor!!!!!!! Ya, kitchens and bathrooms are the most expensive investments. I am positive your house is going to be beautiful and I can not wait to see pictures of the transformation. You should have put a picture of the current counter tops today.....I am just saying, because I am so UP on the whole blogging thing. lol

I can not wait to see what you all do in your new kitchen! I really want to replace our kitchen counter tops and I am way to scared to see the price. :o) I will just pretend they are a beautiful. :o)

Oh you have no idea...Almond is actually do-able...13 years ago we moved into a house with white formica that had green and yellow sunbursts all over it...a throw back from the 70's and the lovely avacado appliances...Puke, Gag, Vomit, OH MY!!! That was the first thing to go!

Please share pictures of the makeover!
