A New Moen Faucet and a $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway

A New Moen Faucet and a $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway

A few years ago a dream of ours came true, and we were able to buy a cabin in Bear Lake, Idaho. To say we were thrilled would be a gross understatement. We’ve loved having this little slice of heaven and have used it as frequently as possible. It’s been a great way to build relationships with our family and friends; our time there is well spent. The cabin was built in 2006, and is in good repair. There is a lot of work to be done outside in the yard and we have been dreaming of different ways to landscape and make use of the space there, but everything on the inside is wonderful.
…except this lovely kitchen faucet. It may look fine…
but let me tell you. This silver-headed wonder really likes to spew water in a million different directions at any given time. Not my favorite faucet, to say the least. So, when BlogHer and Moen offered me the opportunity to install a new Moen faucet and write a post about it… well, I jumped at the chance. Out with the old, and in with the new.

MyHandsomeHusband is handy with projects like this, so when the faucet arrived we made a trip up to the lake and got to work.

He adjusted the plumbing…

took the old girl out…

and prepped the space for the new faucet.

Can I just tell you, Moen faucets are wonderful!

We opted to go with the Hensley model because I liked the look of it and wanted a faucet that has a pulldown head with adjustable spraying methods.

She looks good, yes?

And just look at that! She’s spraying in all the right directions. I dare say this is the best kitchen faucet I’ve ever had. The head pulls down easily and can be manipulated with no problems at all.

Love it.

An all-around good choice.

We are back in business. Oh, how I wish you could see the beautiful view from these kitchen windows. It’s my favorite place in all of the world to cook (and do dishes). The view speaks a little bit of peace to my heart. Try as I might I couldn’t get my camera to give you a glimpse of the lake from this angle, but trust me. It’s a beauty.

Here is a shot MyHandsomeHusband took outside last summer when everything was green. Pretty, isn’t it? As I said, it’s a little slice of heaven. Thanks to Moen for the wonderful new faucet!

    Right now, we have some pretty hideous hunter green laminate countertops. That’s on the top of my list of things to change.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    One of the things I would change about my kitchen is the faucet! I don’t like how it looks or feels! I do agree that Moen faucets are the best!

    We recently bought a new house and the dishwasher is unusable. It has some sort of sticky, gooey, yucky gunk clogging up the filters and sprayers and it sprays everywhere when it gets run. We’ve just been hand washing everything and using the dishwasher as an expensive drying rack! I wouldn’t mind buying a new machine—or at least a motor that isn’t filled with stickiness. Thanks for the chance to win!
