Our kitchen/breakfast nook has turned out to be an eclectic mix of contemporary and traditional art - even with my Turkish platter thrown in the mix - paired with the psychadellic yellow, it seems super funky...but I kinda love it (not the color, just the whole vibe...we're hoping to tame it down by asking the owners if we can paint it a neutral color at some point).

|looking into the kitchen from the breakfast nook. the door on the left is the walk-in pantry and the door on the right leads to the laundry room and garage. again, we're just renting this house, so the paint colors are NOT our first choice.|

|my honey bunny. Meggie saw me taking pictures of Allie - trying to get a 9 month shot - and asked to have HER picture taken. :)|
|so then I had to grab her and get in one, too! :)|
|this is looking from the entry space - you can see the open floor plan with the living room, office nook, and kitchen/breakfast nook in the background.|
|sorry so dark - this is your view when you step inside.|
|our entry table, office corner, living room, etc.|

|Meggie Moo later this same day in her new outfit. (the only way we can get her to smile for the camera these days is to bribe her with candy. :) she did this smile for an M&M!)|
|Alice Virginia on her "palette" - (Hi, Kaitlin and Maeve!!! The same day Maeve turned six months and wore this outfit, AV happened to have it on here - even when we're not together these girls are still "twousins.")|

|not quite there, but still cute as a bug!|
DEFINITELY not our house in Edmond (I'm just so, so, so missing our beautiful, budding trees right now and our huge open windows), but I'm starting to believe that we're going to be happy here, too.
And I'm thankful for the new treasures our beach bungalow has to offer - like a simple, cozy layout, a secluded master bedroom, and kid-friendly back yard.
