Lighting Inspiration that is. Nothing that will make you move away from the computer, unfortunately.

Kristin just reminded me on Facebook that I actually have a blog! I love her for that.

I couldn't easily find a picture I wanted to post until I came to this. It is what I want for my kitchen but totally doesn't go. The good news is that it is only half the price of the kitchen sink I want. The bad news is it is half the price of the kitchen sink I want. I put my island pendant light obsession off for about 5 weeks and now I am back at it. I can NOT find what I want (that looks decent and doesn't cost a fortune). I took the light down that I had and have nothing at the moment. I actually like having nothing (not so much the gaping hole in the ceiling). You would have to see how ugly the other light was to appreciate that. Are there pretty insignificant things in your home that just BUG you? For my husband it is our kitchen sink. I have heard him talk about how awful it is for 10 years. It was the light fixture over my island for me. I can breathe easier now that it is in Salvation Army Heaven.

I immediately feel bad after writing something like this when there are such bigger problems in the world and in my own community. This problem doesn't stress me out as much as the other stuff so it is where I tend to focus too much attention. Ignorance is bliss?

Not about my kids

It is actually the hubs. Can you tell he is 2 stories in the air?

I'm a very bad blogger. Part of my charm. Here is the 16x20 gallery wrap canvas I just ordered of my kids. I have titled it:

I'm the KING OF THE WORLD, I don't care who you think you're the king of, and I know you are the king but just pay attention to me, dang it!

Out of 1,645 shots I took of my kids on this particular morning, this might be the only one that the princess did not scream "NO, I NOT!" with every reasonable request. So, I must blow it up on the wall just for that reason alone.

Ohhhh, we have come so far. Just look where we were 2.5 years ago when she wasn't able to say "NO, I NOT" (although she must have been thinking it).
