The kitchen! When RC found this place (almost 4 years ago), it had just been totally redone with great upgrades!
Micromini Small refrigerator. And yes, that is all of the counter space/kitchen cabinets we have. SIX. Six small cabinets. Count 'em. Can you spot our amazing waffle maker?
The three cake pedestals were wedding shower gifts and are from c. We have the matching serveware. Slim Simplehuman trash cans fit neatly by the kitchen cart. One is for trash, the other is for recycling. The granite kitchen cart is from Target; I got in on sale last year and I put it together all by myself. Took me forever!
Because we are starved (ha ha- funny, because it's in the kitchen- get it?) for counter space, we try to only leave out things that we use everyday. Knife set, coffee pot, salt/pepper and that footed bowl usually holds fruit, but we didn't get any this week! The snap lid containers of rice, flour, sugar used to sit on top of the fridge, but we moved them here to have easier access that top cabinet above the fridge.
Home Sweet Home tea towels.

We had these spice racks on the counter, but mounted them to the wall above the stove to save space!
What is my kitchen must-have? I'd have to say music. There was always music playing in the kitchen when I was growing up! So, this portable Bose SoundDock is perfect for our kitchen space. We use it everyday. We jam in the morning to start the day and mellow out while we cook dinner.
AND- What's behind that curtain, you ask?
Ummm, little shallow built in shelves- perfect for little stuff!
I think that maybe this space used to house a drop down ironing board? I'm not really sure...
Curtain leads to our bedroom.
This cross stitch rose was made by my mom.My mom gave it as a gift to my aunt when she was married. When Ryan and I were married, Aunt E gifted it to us. I love that it's still in it's original frame. It's really special to me.
Calendar of events.Fits perfectly on the side of the fridge. I love how big it is. This keeps us organized. RC and I add events so we can be sure that nothing overlaps and we can plan dinners together.
My favorite thing about our kitchen: the granite countertops.
Least favorite part: you guessed it! Lack of cabinet/counter space. We've made it work though, so it's not horrible. At our place, it's always a close call in the kitchen!
Next up for tomorrow, our living room.
