One if by land, two if by burro?

Here's a quick update on the kitchen.

We've been (im)patiently waiting to hear something about our sinks. We ordered beautiful (we hope) custom hammered copper sinks for the kitchen. We ordered them online. From an eBay store. In Mexico.

Yes, really.

The company's eBay store has their standard copper sink, which we liked. But then we decided it would be better if it had a place for towels...and was a little deeper. So we emailed them and they made ours special. We didn't know that special would also mean SLOW. Maybe we were in denial. Over a month ago, we ordered and paid for them. About 2 weeks ago I started wondering if there was a guy in Mexico having a little "I love American suckers" fiesta in our honor. Were we ever going to get our sinks?!?

The good news is that the sinks are supposed to arrive today. I am so excited to see them I can hardly type.

There's been some other stuff done in the kitchen. Doors hung, cabinets finished, trim, blah blah blah. The SINKS are coming! Wohoooo!!
