It’s finally all here! 

When we moved into our new place, I made some major sacrifices in the kitchen area.. specifically in the sink area.

We went from a huge, stainless steel sink with an insinkerator to this

Small, serviceable but barely. I have a 5 quart mixer I don’t like to use right now because it’s bowl is to big to clean in this sink, without water going everywhere.

In fact, one day, while hooking up our dishwasher, the whole faucet came off in my hands… thankfully, I’m pretty quick on my feet and got the water turned off and cleaned up, but STILL. If you could see me, you’d see the whites of my eyes rolling into the back of my head…

So I said, mrgillis, in a couple years I would really appreciate a sink upgrade. The dang thing doesn’t even have a sprayer!

So for Christmas, lo and behold, mrgillis and his parents made a big dream of mine come true….

That’s a 8 inch deep stainless steel sink with a beautiful new faucet set with sprayer and space saving insinkerator…

The plumber has been contacted and I’m going to get the sink setup that’s sets this little homemakers heart all a flutter… possibly even this week.

Excitement abounds in the gillis household today. I’ll update this blog when it’s all done!

Until next time, have a wicked good night!

02.23.17 UPDATE!

WE HAVE A NEW SINK SETUP! Complete with sprayer and handy mini insinkerator.

We also have, dundundun,

Another effing leak in our brand new home. This is the second one, the first being in the wall behind the shower. That one we caught as soon as we moved in.

This one has been slow leaking out of our kitchen hot water pipe, since November.

Our plumbers going to look into it and Coastline Homes of Houlton is going to take care of the bill, because holy. They’ve been great, but it is just one thing after another it feels like.

BUT we have our new sink and the problem will be fixed soon.

Until, next time- have a wicked good day!
