a little 'bout Carrie, Evan, Dallin, Thad and Nolan Gilstrap

I never knew how much I loved interior design until I had a home of my own! I could spend hours looking at kitchens online. We did a quick upgrade to our kitchen recently.
First, a before: (I never realized how much clutter is on the counter! I thought I had it under control...)
And the after:
The best part is the sink. It's amazingly huge and I am in love with it. Best part, it fits two kids bathing (can these things hold this much weight?? Sorry, couldn't hold Thad and take the picture so Dallin is solo)
I'm not in love with the backsplash (we just extended the quartz; my preference would have been subway tile), but since this is a place we're not living in forever, we went the quick route. The quartz is Caesarstone, color Raven. I still dream of carera marble in my kitchen so I'm hoping by the time I'm building my dream kitchen they'll have an amazing Quartz equivalent. Got that counter engineers? You've got one year...well, maybe a little longer!
momma of cute Dallin (six years old), Thad (three years old), and Nolan (1 year old)...currently back at HP working part-time...married to Evan for EIGHT! years, loving the bay area.
