I'm Dreaming of a White Kitchen

This is my kitchen. It's boring, functional but boring. I have lots of counter space, the functioning so called triangle of ease, but it lacks style. Oh yeah and it does have a bit of clutter. I should have taken the picture after I cleaned but I thought it was more authentic this way. I really want an all white kitchen but I wonder if it is a good idea with three boys ages 9, 9 and 11. A white kitchen needs to always be clean, fresh and sparklingly or maybe they just look clean and fresh because they are white?

I love the floor in this kitchen, the dark brown against the white looks perfect and those light fixtures are incredible. I realize I like white, wood and stainless steel together.
This just might be my dream kitchen!

This kitchen is beautiful but probably to perfect for me. It looks like no one lives here.

This kitchen is perfect it looks very functional, family friendly and just all around interesting.

Maybe someday!!

Weekend Fun

Oatmeal Cookies

I made my Sweetheart some of these Martha Stewart Oatmeal Raisin Cookies this weekend and this recipe is the best oatmeal cookie I have ever made. I don't know why but they have a great flavor and texture. Also, they were moist and chewy a perfect combination. I think the milk makes them extra moist.

Here is the link to the recipe

The Hardest Job in the World

This has been floating around a lot of blogs lately and I though it was worth sharing.
It sounds like a cliche but parenting is so incredibly hard. We as parents as responsible for our children's happiness, security and well being not to mention the hard stuff like cooking, laundry and cleaning up the urine that is on the toilet seat, the floor and sometimes they even make it into the small decorative bathroom garbage can, lucky me. Maybe, I should resort back to the old Cheerios in the toilet trick?
