New Counters!

I am back from my blogging vacation. Thanks to my sister, Michelle for taking over. I hope you enjoyed her adventures from Texas. I didn't go anywhere, I just didn't feel like blogging. I'm sure most of you can relate. I am back with some more house updates.
We got our counter tops in on Friday. Here is the before picture with our lovely plain counters. I can't believe I lived with them for so long after looking at the new ones.
Here is a nice close up in case you were ever thinking of installing something like this, don't.
David did the demo work and removed all the counters. It didn't take very long so that was good.  Please don't pay attention to the tops of the cabinets.
Tada! Sorry about the glare. Here are our granite counters!

I LOVE the new deep sinks with the under mount. David hooked the faucet back up and has already installed the back splash. Stay tuned tomorrow for that. I don't know how I lived without my granite counters for so long. It was worth the wait!

The undermount is the BEST decision ever. Makes clean-up so easy! Love the new tops!

I'm so jealous of your kitchen. I want granite and I have to have that sink. Of course, then the cabinets would have to go.... I need to either move or win the lottery.
