memory card reader found!

disclaimer:  in no way are these photos actually representative of how cool our house and kitchen will actually be when finished.   (those of you who have never been here before, be sure to click on the orange text above for more photos!)

two weeks ago, ray, the cats and i moved into a hotel for three days so that matthias (from MTF flooring) could rip out our carpet, the tile underneath (and the asbestos - yikes!), put down a moisture barrier and install our beautiful new white bamboo floor.  okay, technically it is called tan shan mist or something but it looks white to us!   the hotel was interesting - the cats really enjoyed the fact that they could crawl inside the mattresses and hide from me. especially the day that i was bringing them home.   

since the move home from the hotel on the 1st of may, despite ray working his butt off every day and well into the night sometimes, we've had a few things hold up our progress - a part for our new electrical box happened to be on special order, our plumber was on another job and wouldn't be able to make it over right away and our pendant lights are still in transit but...after four months we finally cooked dinner!!
