Cabinets, Counter Tops and Giants

We received a phone call yesterday from the truck driver delivering my new kitchen cabinets.  He was about 22 miles away and was calling to notify us that he would be here in about 30 minutes and wanted to make sure someone was home to accept delivery.  Mr. Fix-It (hubby) informed him that yes he was here.  The driver then asks a question that we were not expecting.  Did we have enough room for him to get his TRANSFER TRUCK  turned around?  Uh, NO....we were told that the cabinets would be delivered on a 24 foot box truck.  We have room for a box truck to turn around back here (we live back in the woods and still have no real grass in the yard yet and it has been raining here for the past WEEK) but definitely not an 18-wheeler.  Mr. Fix-It tells the wonderful gentleman that he could meet him at the end of our driveway and show him where he could park and they could off-load them onto our truck.  We were blessed, really my husband was blessed.  They got the truck parked and two men, sweet kind GIANTS of men unloaded the cabinets and rode with my husband and helped him load them into the house.  I have cabinets and I love them!  

Mr. Fix-It went and picked up the counter tops today and I have to say the counter tops are amazing!  The colors in the tops tie it all together.   We are going to go pick up the bead board panels and sink tomorrow.  

I thought about posting some pics today of everything piled against the walls in my kitchen but I really want to wait and have a big reveal!   I will be posting before and after pictures in the next few days.  Thanks for stopping by!
