Show Us Your Life-Kitchens

Hi everyone!  I'm joining the party again at Kelly's Korner.  This week on the Show Us Your Life series, we're in the kitchen.  Hands down, the most used room in the house!  I'm in here all the family loves to eat.  Okay, they probably get that from me so I guess it's a good thing I don't mind cooking.  And this is a great kitchen to cook in.  We have lots of deep cabinets and storage space but my favorite thing here is the island.  It really comes in handy for food prep and baking.
Here's a full picture of the kitchen area.  It's a really open floor plan which is great when we entertain.
This scroll embellishment is my latest find at Hobby Lobby.  I'm lovin' that store and soooo glad they're finally here in California!  We have really high ceilings and I thought the picture needed a little something extra to fill up the space. 
Here's our coffee station.  My husband got this for me for my birthday and it's great!  So many times in the afternoon, I'd like a cup of coffee but didn't want to make a pot.  Now I can have a flavored coffee anytime I'd like (thanks honey).
Here's a picture of it at night.  There's a really nice, cozy glow.  
I love roosters.  My husband teases me that I'm turning the kitchen into a rooster shrine.  To be honest, I really didn't realize I had so many in the kitchen until this post.
So that's the tour for this week.  We have plans to redo the counters, add a backsplash, and install granite later on this year.  But for now, we are just really blessed and thankful for what we have.  I'm looking forward to seeing all of your kitchens.  Have a fabulous weekend!


  1. Beautiful kitchen! It does feel warm and inviting. :)

  2. What a beautiful kitchen! I love how it feels spacious and cosy at the same time.

  3. I love the cozy glow in your kitchen! And I love your roosters, I decorate with them as well. They are slowly overtaking my kitchen, too!

    Isn't the Keurig the greatest! Most popular appliance, hands down!

  6. I was sooo happy that Hobby Lobby hit here in So Cal. too! :) I have one 20 min. North now, and I can waste a lot of time in there. :) Also, I love your roosters. I have them too. If I wasn't avoiding my blog right now, I would have posted mine. ;) Great kitchen.

  7. I can not imagine decorating a home without Hobby Lobby! I love the wall art above the stove top :)
