new diggs: the kitchen/dining rooms


please note:

Our microwave from 1982 (must hit door after you push start to make it go).
The equally old gas stove/oven (I feel like I have finally figured out the way my oven thinks. it took a few burned batches of cookies and one near-fire with the lasagna, but I think we now have an understanding).
All Out Of pad (the best grocery store list EVER!) and if you're in my family you might be getting  yourself one for your birthday coming up..... what can I say? I like to share.
The beautiful bouquet of dumdums
Our pretty rad silverware storage situation. This kitchen has NO drawers for silverware (that makes a girl think hard about how/where to put her spoons and forks). Thanks Ikea (we're tight. like BFFs or something).
My hooks!!! I've worked up quite the hook collection over the years and I had a vision of all the hooks on some thick, dark brown boards so we slipped our handy-dandy bro in law some $$ and he put those suckers on there for us! Now they're up and being all useful and stuff (thanks a mil Ty).
