Show Us Your Life: Kitchens

I'm linking up again this week with Kelly over at Kelly's Korner for Show Us Your Life!

This week the theme is kitchens! So without further ado here you go:

Our kitchen is the center of our house and where I spend the most time each day. It gets lots of sunlight and you can still be part of the action due to our open floor plan. It is so great for entertaining! Lots of room for people to hang out!

When we were building, this is what our kitchen looked like:

How did we ever think that was going to come together? It is so tricky designing a kitchen because you pick out all these little things separately and then you just hope they work out when they are all together.

I also love my open shelving to showcase my fiesta ware collection. I say it is a collection, but really we use it everyday. It is nice to have my serving pieces out because a lot of times I will grab them just for dinner with Scott and I. Serving pieces aren't just for entertaining! I have other fun serving pieces but sometimes I forget to bring them out because they are hidden in this jungle:

Yikes, huh? My pantry holds so much stuff, it is pretty scary. I have a bad habit of just throwing stuff in there and shutting the door, so I try and clean it out every few months or so.

And of course, what is a fall kitchen without a fiesta bowl of apples? I hope you enjoyed your tour of my kitchen!

Here are a couple other links if you feel like staying around for a bit:
