What’s missing?

Whoops!  I seem to be missing my kitchen!  It’s been here for almost 60 years so it was time for it to go.

While I’m waiting to get a kitchen back, some friends will be stopping by with some of their fabulous food!  Be sure to come over, say Hello and grab a bite to eat.

    Oh, I hope you share updates with lots of photos. I’m remodeling too. Plan to share before, during and after pics…
    Good luck with your process, I know it can be stressful 🙂

    Good luck with your kitchen renovations! Hope everything goes well and can’t wait to see the results!

    How exciting! (and probably stressful). Please post tons of pictures when you get the kitchen finished – I love looking at kitchens.

    Bless your heart! That remodel looks painful!
    I love the vintage picture of you and your friends and this was a great guest post. Please post some “after” pictures when you can (which I hope is soon)!

    How exciting about the new kitchen. Can’t wait to see what it looks like when it’s done. I bet it will be your dream kitchen.

    Wow! This is exciting, MJ! I’m so happy for you and I can’t wait to see how your new kitchen will look like!

  9. Michi August 25, 2012 at 8:11 am #

    You’ll have to show us before and after photos!! 🙂

    It’s a pain making over a kitchen, but so worth it. I’ll be eagerly awaiting pictures. Have you decided on counter tops and cabinets yet? And we’ll all want to know what appliances you choose!

  11. Jane August 22, 2012 at 9:20 am #

    I can’t imagine living without a kitchen!! Good luck!!

  12. Raymund August 21, 2012 at 11:52 pm #

    I will be doing this soon as well, counting days

    • mj August 22, 2012 at 10:34 am #

      Oh fun!!! Can’t wait to hear about your remodel!

  13. Anne@FromMySweetHeart August 21, 2012 at 9:24 pm #

    How exciting!!! A new kitchen!!! I can’t wait to see what it looks like and I hope you will share pictures when you get settled! I wish I were your neighbor…I’d bring you dinner! Anyway….when can we expect the ‘reveal’? : )

    • mj August 22, 2012 at 10:33 am #

      Thanks Anne! The reveal should be in 4 to 5 weeks if everything goes as planned, but based on day two, that might be a challenge! 🙂

  14. mj August 21, 2012 at 8:32 pm #

    Thanks everyone! Yes, it’s going to be a trip. The first two days have been pretty crazy, but it’s been the tear out. We’re finding some crazy things, but then that’s expected in a 60 year old house. I will be sharing before/after photos when it’s all done.

  15. Javelin Warrior August 21, 2012 at 7:28 pm #

    Wow, MJ! Congrats on gutting the kitchen and what a project. I remember when we did it before selling our house and by the time it was done I was just itching to use all the counters and appliances 🙂 Keep the pictures coming and can’t wait to see how it turns out. And thanks for the invite – I’d definitely stop in for a bite 🙂

  16. Viviane Bauquet Farre August 21, 2012 at 7:17 pm #

    What an exciting time! The wait will be well worth it when you have an amazing new space. I’ll be waiting for the before/after pictures, MJ!

  17. Liz August 21, 2012 at 7:11 pm #

    How exciting!!! I can’t wait to see the after photos 🙂

  18. Zsuzsa August 21, 2012 at 4:58 pm #

    Something tells me you are not next door. 🙂 I live in Kamloops B.C.
    You will have a lovely kitchen though. I would be interested to see how it evolves. My goodness, this is for real! I will keep an eye on your progress if you share. Good luck!

  19. Rathai August 21, 2012 at 3:31 pm #

    That is one funny title. 🙂 I’m all excited seeing this and you are very brave to renovate your kitchen completely, MJ. I’d love to see pictures of your new kitchen, when it is ready. Best of luck with your kitchen renovation!

  20. Sylvia August 21, 2012 at 2:39 pm #

    How exciting! I would love to have new kitchen too! I can’t wait to see yours once it’s done!

  21. Michelle @ Simplify, Live, Love August 21, 2012 at 2:24 pm #

    Holy Moly!!! How exciting! My hubs is a remodeler who specializes in kitchen renovations so I will be super excited to watch your progress!! Hang in there! I have washed dishes in bathtubs, in sinks hooked up outside, in bath room sinks -stinks for a while, but it’s so nice when it’s all finished. Good luck!

    • mj August 21, 2012 at 8:26 pm #

      Thanks Michelle! Bobby is washing dishes in the bathtub as I type this. 🙂 I didn’t know what your husband did. We should have consulted your husband for ideas! I bet he has renovated some beautiful kitchens!

  22. wok with ray August 21, 2012 at 11:33 am #

    Exxxxcitingggg!!! I can’t wait to see the beautiful MJ’s Kitchen. Like Nami, me too can’t wait to see the before and after photos. 🙂

    You have to let me know how you survived being kitchenless! we’re redoing ours this fall and I’m totally sweating it since we have a 7 week old baby!!

    • mj August 21, 2012 at 8:21 pm #

      I certainly will! I can’t imagine going through this with a 7 week old baby! You’re a brave lady! 🙂 The first two days have been tear out and that has not been fun: however, based on other remodels we’ve done, that’s the worst part. If you can survive the tear out, the rest is a piece of cake. 🙂

  24. Cucina49 August 21, 2012 at 9:27 am #

    Wow, now that’s a full kitchen remodel! I look forward to seeing what you do with the space.

  25. Susan Rankin August 21, 2012 at 8:44 am #

    I’d love to come to dinner. You buying the plane ticket?

    • mj August 21, 2012 at 8:12 pm #

      We’d love to have your for supper, but your plane ticket is paying for the new fridge. 🙂

  26. Kelly @ Inspired Edibles August 21, 2012 at 6:01 am #

    Oh my Goodness, that *is* a full reno!! How exciting… good luck with the transition MJ – looking forward to reading your guest posts! 🙂

  27. Sissi August 21, 2012 at 5:58 am #

    Good luck with the kitchen renovation! I imagine how thrilled you must be to have soon a new place to enjoy cooking and experimenting.

  28. Treat and Trick August 21, 2012 at 12:45 am #

    Can’t wait to see the transformation of your new kitchen! Hope you have fun with the renovation!

  29. Nami | Just One Cookbook August 21, 2012 at 12:24 am #

    That’s right! The time has come! Oh I’m so looking forward to seeing your before after picture MJ! I hope you will share it with us. I love kitchen remodel/updates. For us food bloggers, that’s where we spend majority of time and I can see your excitement already! Will be back to check on your guests! 😉
