Look at how talented Mark is!

I have to show you my Christmas present- well actually it's all of my Christmas presents wrapped into one.
We give gift cards on my side of the family so I asked for Lowes. Then I had asked for something different from Mark which he got me. However, it wasn't as great as I had envisioned so I returned it and got the cash for it. I also had given Mark a Lowes gift card which he lovingly gave me back to use for this:

New counter top! We got the pre-fabricated type that you can get at Lowes and it's very very reasonable- for our entire kitchen it cost $175 with my gift cards it only cost me a tiny fraction of that.
My dad gives us money for Christmas every year so that paid for my new sink.
Labor???? Free- Mark did it all and did an awesome job if I do say so myself!
There's one more thing that is being finished up Monday- it does make a huge impact so I'll show you that tomorrow- but in the meantime- check this out!

The construction begins:












Oscar helping put in the sink






I just love it. The old counter top and sink were so yucky- this makes the whole kitchen look new again. Thank you Mark- I so appreciate all the hard work you put in. He did this in 1 day- pretty good huh!
Check back tomorrow to see the finishing touch!
