Saturday morning, the (pink) dumpster arrived around 8 and just like that, our plans were becoming a reality. Of course, we still haven't finalized our kitchen design or decided where the bathroom is going to go or even ordered any tiles/ cabinets but the day still came and the kitchen was still to be destroyed. So while I went up to PA to celebrate my beautiful sister, the mommy to be, Ryan had a few friends over and created our "open" floor plan.
Here are some before pictures and the reason we are now cut off from the first floor of our house.

|This is the wall that connects to the bathroom.|
|Our "pantry" even though I can't fit normal sized pantry items in there.|
|Our huge bathroom that separates our kitchen from our great room. Kitchen is to the left.|
Sunday morning, Monkey and I came back to DC nice and early so we could help with the action. Day two was more concentrated on getting the floor up. We found a newspaper in the floor and the date was April 17, 1920, kind of cool, right? And even back then, there was an article about losing weight. Ha, ha.

|You can see right through to the basement, awesome.|
