It's hard to get the hubs to agree to anything that has to do with upgrading in our house. We've been in the house since we were married and are very blessed to say we own so when I want to upgrade random items, hubs smacks me back into reality saying not many 23 year olds own their own home. Let alone for 3 years.

We did finally bite the bullet though and chose to upgrade our flooring. The carpet was brand new when the house was purchased but the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry suffer from hideous linoleum. We... I wanted wood floors since forever so I was able to convince the man of the house and we did just that.

We ended up choosing laminate over wood because we do have a massive dog to mess up things, friends who are over often to add more of a beating and the two of us who are constantly moving around the house only causing more traffic. So for our lifestyle, laminate was going to be the smartest choice being more sustainable and durable.

My dad who helped us with our backyard, also agreed to help us lay the new flooring. Bless his heart because without him, we'd never know what to do! This past weekend, the boys spent 12 hours straight laying floors while I watched, encouraged and snapped pictures all the while.

Isn't it gorgeous?!

In the beginning hubs kept saying it didn't make a difference to him and he couldn't visualize the outcome but he is so impressed with how it turned out. That says a lot.

I'm in heaven. I just want to stay in the kitchen and never leave.
