Less sore today. Even more excited to get things set up. My Queen Room is coming along nicely so that I didn’t have to spend 10 minutes looking for underwear 😉
Here’s the first room we finished. Obviously. The kitchen.

View from dining room
These shelves are still a work in progress, but I’m excited to have things I use all the time so handy – oats, french press, colander, granola (!!)
LOVE the drawer organization!! I really slimed down my choices and donated duplicates to Goodwill.
Found the perfect spot for coffee!
Still working on this pantry door but I did get two new pot holders yesterday at Target!
Simple everyday small pots (larger ones are in a bottom cabinet)
Shelf to be filled with a few more little jars. Chia seeds got priority!!
IKEA knife rack. I had to fight with Matt to get LESS knives on it and these are the bare minimum!
IKEA dish towels – love!
Appliances. So excited about the spaciousness.
VERY excited about this cabinet. We call it "White and Glass" (so clever!)
As someone with a food blog, I need lots of variety in my dishes to keep things interesting. But the truth is, I’m a white dish girl!! I love simplicity and would just have all white and glass if it were all up to me.
In our old house we had all of the "most used" stuff together – whites and colors. And then less used in the dining room.
So my solution was to group all of my simple stuff in the kitchen and all the colors in the dining room cabinet. It does mean going to the dining room for an oatmeal bowl, but for organization, I’m willing to give that up!
Did you notice there’s no microwave!?!? For the sake of counter space we’re going to give it a try without one. I’m sure you can do almost anything with a stovetop. We’ll see how it goes!
Breakfast was on the porch
Chocolate Raspberry Coconut
Whipped banana chia oat base
- Crumbled chocolate chip muffin from Jess (AMAZING Jess!!)
- Andrea‘s raspberry jam (I think it was raspberry!)
- Coconut butter
<3 my spoons the most of all
See you for lunch!
