I Was Gonna Post Yesterday....

... but then it took 4 men approximately 150 hours to install the new lights above my kitchen counter. And their shouting and pulling pulling up their pants every 2 seconds definitely killed my desire to do anything but lounge on the couch with Harry Potter.

But hey... I've got lights above my kitchen counter!

And thanks to I don't have the crappy $20 bargain-basement hideousness that my dad had chosen to install. Praise the LORD for 2 day shipping!

So instead of posting yesterday I spent the whole afternoon looking for a replacement for the other 2 lights in the kitchen.

Ugly 1 and Ugly 2. Suggestions?

Other than a sledge hammer, my dad says.

Geesh, man doesn't know how to take a JOKE.

But honestly... I wasn't joking. Hello, there are EXPOSED NON-FUNCTIONING light bulbs in the middle of my kitchen. Wtf?

But on the upside... all the canned pumpkin in stores means I can't let a day pass without more treats.... meet this morning's pumpkin muffins:
Yeah, I've already made a dent in these puppies.

Oh, and just because this post wasn't random enough.... I shopped all yesterday. Till I dropped... which was like 3.5 hours.

Best purchase of the day?

Was it new shoes?





So while I'm jamming out to my new go-to Christmas album... won't you all start brainstorming for my post tomorrow...

Cause I want you to tell me what you want for Christmas.

Talk amongst yourselves... I'll be back tomorrow.

Happy Thursday!

Love your new lights! I want a kitchen aide mixer for Christmas- funny as you get older you want things for your house and not for yourself!

I think my mom put the same lights above the island in our kitchen! And for the furthest light in that picture, I am assuming its over the sink? She put in a recessed fixture and it looks really good!

I love those lights. And I love how things always take longer than we think they're going to.

Love the new lights. My husband's aunt had the Flourescent lighting and she had a trim carpenter come out and install a architectural wood feature and then add new lighting within it...ok poor description. Think wood beams with a light fixture coming from it.

The new lights look great!! And normally I love Christmas cheese, but my store has already started the daily Christmas music and it's not even Thanksgiving. So I'm having to ration the Christmas music this year so I don't pull my hair out before Dec. 25th. haha

The lights look very nice. At least you got something at the end of the inconvenience.
