Our Home in Pictures: The Kitchen

Before we get to my kitchen tour... I just wanted to thank you so much for all of your incredibly kind words about my post about my dad -- He truly is my most favorite person and to be able to share that with such wonderful people means a lot -- Next time I'll warn you to grab your Kleenex boxes! :)

OK... On with it --


When we were originally picking out our cabinetry, I wanted a "Ginger" color wood -- I compromised and when they installed it, I was sad that we went with the lighter wood -- BUT! once Mr. Realife and my dad painted the kitchen, I felt somewhat better about it all...


Our kitchen and bathrooms originally had linoleum in them --
While this may work for some areas in your home,
it just didn't feel nice on our feet --

So... my dad came up and tiled all those areas for us!
We love it!!

This is our kitchen now!


A few of the details...

Starting with clearly the most important :)



Yes... that is dust on top of this Griddle :)

That's why Mr. Realife bought me this...


Hope you enjoyed our tour of the kitchen! Next week?
Laundry Room :)

Love it! When we built our house, I spent more time and effort on getting my kitchen exactly right than any other room! I love the "bar" sink at your cooktop. I wish I would have done something similar. And the bright colors... love it! Such a cheery place and fun place.

Anna,

I love the kitchen. It is very important to love your kitchen since you spend a lot of time in there. Well, for myself that is not true. I don't like to cook much but I do at times. We have the same refrigerator!! This is so cool. Well, I will talk to you soon. Again, love the kitchen!

I absolutely love how you are sharing
your home with everyone. What makes it even more better is having someone who loves and adores you to share it with. Love the steel fridge!
