Operation Pantry

Once upon a time, I had a really teeny tiny pantry. Despite my organizing attempts, it still looked like a big messy blob. I didn't even know what I had in there. On Saturday, that came to an end when Brian took his only real day off and built me a new pantry.

First he placed some brackets. He also concentrated very, very hard.

Next, he built some shelves. He even ate lunch in there because he's just that dedicated to his craft (yes, that is a turkey sandwich in his hand).
Then he built even more shelves (this was his reaction when I told him to smile).
And I organized.

Finally, I saw that it was good. (I also saw that, at 27 weeks, I am enormous.) We're talkin' huge.

My jealousy knows no bounds. I would eat a turkey sandwich in there any day!

Oh, my kingdom for a pantry!

Brian, this is excellent work. You just earned like, 12 El Pollo trips. :)

You is one cute oven, ma'am.

Abby! You are one adorable pregnant lady :) Congrats on the new pantry, it's beautiful!

Steph said...

I love it!! Nice work Brian. BTW you are not huge, you look beautiful!

Liv said...

I have to say that your homemade storage is better than Brian's. His just holds food. Yours holds a BABY.

Madeline and Family said...

That looks fabulous! I take back my comment about you being the "Al" of the family. You are both an "Al" all around. BTW- I think you look just as great as that pantry there :).

Kaylynn said...

Too bad your pantry can't keep growing as you do. You are so very, very cute!

Abby...I know the feeling...my storage space wouldn't be as cramped if I didn't have as much stuff! PS Thanks for the tip, I forgot to enable comments, they should be on there now! Thank you!

I'm loving your last two "nesting" blogs. You rock.

The man needs a drill. He already has a beautiful wife and a ladder. Once he has a drill, he needs nothing else. I know, I have these things.

Dad.

P.S. Other things come along too. Like Corvette's and stuff.

Abby said...

And cattle ranches and fly fishing gear, right Dad?
