House Tour: Kitchen

I'm happy to brighten things up a little this morning with a tour of my sunny kitchen... I know most of you have already seen a lot of these; but, one more glimpse won't hurt!

Here you go...
(FYI: Fridge is just to the left of this photo at a right angle.)
 Dear neighbors, I hope you don't mind watching us wash our dishes.  We quite enjoy spying on your dinner time!  ;)

 One of the few bowls of REAL fruit I have in the house!

 FAKE fruit and an apron WAY too cute to actually cook in.  I have ruined many a shirt in favor of preserving the apron - a wedding gift from my "trendy" friend Amanda.

And the infamous... "Wall of Fame."  (Sorry friends - I hope I didn't invade anyone's privacy too much here!)

I like our kitchen a lot - especially the bead board back-splash (say that six times fast) and the color... Neither of which we picked out.  (We bought from a family with great taste! *Many of you have asked for the names of paint colors recently.  I promise, I'm not avoiding those questions on purpose.  I just don't know!  A lot of our stuff was already done when we moved in, and often I'll have a color custom done at Lowe's to match something else.  Sorry!)  

BUT, in our next place... I would definitely NOT want white cabinets/appliances!  Those blasted things are NEVER clean!  Not good for a slightly obsessive compulsive scrubber...

Finally, although it's not very big, there is plenty of space for what I do in it.  I don't think I'll ever be one for investing TONS in a gourmet kitchen... I'm really more of a "living room" kind-of gal.  Small, bright, non-white, and stainless steel for me please!  (Check out more kitchens at Kelly's Korner!)

Oh, and a BONUS:
 A close-up of the hearty beef-stew my cute "House Husband" made for dinner last night all by himself.  I realize that a close-up of stew isn't exactly pretty; but, I wanted to document this to show our kids one day! ;)

We're off this afternoon to Northern Virginia for my Aunt Trisha's memorial service.  Please say a prayer for my family... That there will be peace and sweet time together!  Love ya'll!
