Hazards Of Baking & All You Need Are Chairs

I can't imagine making cookies without my pretty Kitchen Aid.  But it is a dangerous business using that (not so) little helper.  The only place to put it in our closet sized kitchen (grr, whoever built this house did not like to cook and bake as much as I do!!) is on top of the fridge.  We have a huge fridge.  So every time I go to get the Kitchen Aid down from its towering perch, I fear for my life.  It weighs 500 pounds, easily, I can only imagine the damage that dropping it would do.  But persevere I do, because cookies and quiche are worth a little risk.  Yes, chocolate chip cookies for desert after a delicious garlic chicken sausage and parmesan quiche...but seriously, I need some cabinets on ground level for safety's sake...some day.

Here is me, trying not to kill myself retrieving the two ton Kitchen Aid:


Here are the spoils of such a daring and selfless act:


But, in other news, we finally bought chairs (now I can stand on one to retrieve the stuff on top of the fridge!) to go with our huge dining table...this is really worth celebrating because we seriously went for months without any chairs and just this huge table begging to be sat at.

We got rid of nearly all of our furniture during the big move last February and are slowly repurchasing things.  If you've ever shopped for nice dining chairs, you know how pricey they can get, and so I am happy to report a killer steal of a deal from craigslist:  6 chairs, solid wood, nearly perfect for less than the price of one brand new one.  Good things come to those who wait, and stand while eating for months on end because the kids get the barstools.  Ahhh, you will find me sitting at the table, relishing in the quaintness of family dinners and game nights.





Chairs+Table=Happy

It doesn't take a huge thing to make my day.  :)  And....we can now host dinner parties without the BYOC (bring your own chair) requirement.  Classy.

I've always wanted a Kitchen Aid, but am also space challenged, not to mention outlet challenged.

The chairs are awesome and I think they look even better with the pup!

Gotta love craigslist! And I love the rug too!
