No new pictures, but a kitchen update

The countertop guy came out yesterday to make the templates and the regular workers did a little more work.
But I think things are at a standstill until the counters are ready. The guy said they might be able to install by the end of the week or early next week.
I would bet it is later rather than sooner.
I hope I am wrong.
The cooktop and sink are waiting on the counters.
The dishwasher and refrigerator are waiting on tile.
My tile guy is on another job right now, but I am hoping to get a start date from him that falls within the next few weeks.
The manfriend is telling me I can do it myself, but I am scared of doing the floor. I think I will attempt the backsplash. But the floor needs to be solid, so I think I need a professional.
For those of you who may have forgotten about the inspiration for my kitchen, click here. It is all about the white cabinets, the contrasting countertops, the stainless appliances and a cool tile backsplash.
I still love the idea of the subway tiles, but I also really like the glass mosaic tiles (1"x1" squares) in frosted white, greens and blues. If I go to look at tile tomorrow, I will take some pictures of samples.

I love that inspiration photo! Remodels always seem to take a painfully long time, but it's worth it in the end.

Tell me about it.
Now I am waiting so the tiling can start.
It will be a few weeks before my tile guy is available.
