Island Outlet

I can't take it any more!  I have to post something.  I've been waiting to 1. get some pictures uploaded and 2. get through my parent parent-teacher conferences and report card writing before I posted again, but I can't help myself.  I miss blogging.  So I thought I'd write a little something before I get back to the grind of proofreading my report cards.

As we've settled in, the kitchen island has become my work spot.  I've been here with my computer just about every night.  I like that I'm connected to the family room where my husband is basking in the glory of March madness but I can still focus and concentrate since I'm out of the action.  Since this has become my mini office and I sit here for hours each night, I'm so grateful that we decided to have an extra outlet installed in the island so that we have one at each end.  It's a very small detail, but I've been liking that I can plug my computer in without having to run a cord across the floor.  So, if you're still doing your electrical additions, I'd recommend this one.

On a side note, it was great meeting India from TheRyan HomesExperience this weekend!  Also, congrats to Lispis who closed yesterday and Jen and Megan who close tomorrow!

  4. We have two outlets on our island too. I don't really remember making that decision- think it was something our PM just does. I love it too! I sit at the end of it and work at my laptop too and it's great. Two nights ago I was doing just that- updating the blog and backing up photos and videos from the past three months since it has been so hectic with moving. It was nice that I could keep an eye on my toddler and get things done all at once. Yay for functional spaces! Looking forward to seeing pictures!

  8. BD, I promise it will be here before you know it! There's a piece of me that's a bit jealous of you - you still have all of the excitement to look forward to!

    Sara and Sarah and Brian, now that we're in, I'm happy to share "advice" on things that do or don't work for us.
