Kitchen and Breakfast Nook

Here is more of our house.  The tours starts at the bar, so grab a drink (seriously ... I will wait)

Here is our
Kitchen and Breakfast Nook

Kitchen view from the bar.

and the view from the breakfast nook

We have a galley kitchen and I am not in love with it at all - so does I am not even in like with it.  But, it works and that is that.  You may have noticed my sweet zebra lunch bag - it is pretty awesome and I love it! 

We have a nice window over the sink.  It looks out over the dog's kennels so the view isn't good but it lets in lots of light and I like that.

Yes - this is a picture of our garbage cans.  We have two - one is for garbage and the other for recycling.  Can you guess which one is recycling?

Recycling is RIGHT.  Get it?  It is on the right and it is the right thing to do. It is still funny after 2 years!!

Dish soap.  I LOVE this container - my sister bought it for me for my birthday.  LOVE!!  You can get one here.

We also have a duck and her ducklings on our counter.  Aren't they cute?  I bought them at the thrift store for less than $2.  I don't know why I love them so much, but I do!  I also bought the candle holder for 50 cents at the goodwill. 

Our breakfast nook.  The chandelier is from the bar area.  We bought the table a few months after we moved in.  The table always has place mats and cloth napkins ready for dinner.  We eat dinner here together every night. 

Other side of the kitchen - pretty standard.  counter area, stove/oven, and a small "pantry."

I love this little letter organized we have on the counter.  It is a great place to put stuff without looking too cluttered.  I bought it a LONG time ago when I worked at Ross and they were having an employee sale (we got 40% off everything a few times every year). 

We also have a bowl full of apples (from our sad little tree in the backyard).  I don't know why we have so many apples - we hardly even eat them and they are starting to get mushy (maybe I should make applesauce with them).

Our knife set - Michale just bought it from Cabela's and he got a great deal on it.  It was $50 marked down from $150.

If you haven't noticed by now - we are the proud owners of blue counter tops.  Yes - they are blue!

We have a nice little breakfast bar.  With two chairs that match out kitchen table.

See - they match!  All we have to do it pull over the two chairs and our table seats 6 - it is great when we have company!

Hope you enjoyed our kitchen tour!  I will try to do a room each week until they are all done!

What is your favorite thing about YOUR kitchen?

If I did this type of a tour I would really have to clean! We built a few years ago and my favorite thing about my kitchen is definitely plenty of counter space and my pantry!
