~guess what?~

Mystery solved!
I'm back in business folks!
At my old blog that is! 
I went to do a post this morning and it posted to my old blog..........
So, after some investigating I saw that my email address to sign in was changed to my sons email address. No wonder I couldn't sign in.
Turns out, that while my sister was trying to help set up Cody's new I pod on our computer that he got for his birthday, she changed my email to his~therefore, I couldn't sign in.
Long story short, I will be happily blogging again at my old blog here.
If you came here from 6th street design school, Thistlewood Farms, or anywhere else and are a new follower, pls. click that follow button again here, so you will get all my new updates!
A huge thank you to everyone who tried to help me through this and for everyone who posted about it when it happened. 
A short list of the most amazing blog friends ever
{and I am so sorry if I am leaving anyone out!}

If anyone has changed their 
links on their sidebars, pls. change them back, sorry, a pain I know!
I am super happy though!

~our kitchen~

For some reason, I don't show many photos of our kitchen on my blog.
To me it's hard to photograph and there's some changes I'd like to see happen before showing everyone.
But, not knowing when those changes will come, I'm diving right in to show you some photos. 
I took these last night, in not the best light, so bear with the quality.

One thing I'd like to change is the lighting. It's a little too formal for me.
It is hard though to find one that will work for this space. 
If anyone has any suggestions, I'd greatly appreciate it! 
{it has to hang like this one, with 2 chains approx. 10" apart}

One thing I do love is the giant skylight above the island where I painted on "cooking themed" words all the way around.

 We recently just got a new gas cook top, so that will be going in the island shortly, I cannot wait!
 The bar stools are from Pier 1, but I couldn't find them on their website. 
My friend made me the ruffle cushions in a light leopard print.
{thanks Lesa!}
 We usually eat all of our dinners in the dining room, but like to have breakfast 
and lunch together up to the bar.

 The door with the chalkboard is our laundry room.
 And, it's also my favorite thing in the kitchen at the moment because my son added a grocery list.
Doesn't take much to please this kid! :)
