Kitchen Inspiration

I am totally wiped out. Totally!

Many of you know I work in public radio. Well, today was the first day of our Summer Fund Drive -- also known as the semi-annual beg-a-thon.

We had just two days to raise $25,000. And you know what?!? We did it .. in .. one .. day!

A marathon day that started at 5 a.m. for several of my colleagues (6 a.m. for me) and ended 14 hours later.

Needless to say, I'm not cooking tonight! Well, I might broil a hotdog for the kids and warm up some leftover fund drive tacos for Jason and I. But no real cooking.

Instead, I'm gonna sit on my tush with a cold beer and look at kitchen porn.

(and no, I wouldn't be the least bit worried about the open shelving. We took the doors off most of our cabinets about a year ago and love it.)

Ooooh, and this...

Oh my god, I so love that kitchen. I would totally love any of director Nancy Meyers movie houses. She's just genius!

And finally, this...

(Okay, it's not a kitchen. But it's flippin' fabulous!)
