the kitchen.

Okay, here they are. The untouched, hideous real photos. I didn't even crop them. That's how real I'm being here people. Totally real. Like Taxi Cab Confessions real. (I don't even know what that means. I thought maybe it would give me some street cred? I don't know what that means either.)

So, here's the kitchen on a random afternoon. It is NOT pretty. It is, however, excruciatingly honest. It's so honest that it is really, really hurting my soul to put these photographs on the internet. Of course I'm trying to lend some real integrity to my argument that the internet is a big, fat lie.

Without further ado, I present my kitchen cabinets.
Dishes. Serving bowls. Pitchers.
Coffee stuff. Salad spinner. Vases. Huge platter.
Mixing bowls. Water bottles. Plastic crap.
Above the microwave.
Flatware. And the rolling pin and knife sharpener.
Food storage stuff and bottles.
Baking pans.
Cooking utensils.
The junk drawer.
Under the sink.
The pantry.
The fridge.
The refrigerator door.
The top freezer drawer.
The bottom freezer drawer.
Some very old china that I use every single day and stuff we don't use a lot.
The baking sheets and whatnot.

There you have it. Now I'm going to go organize that kitchen like it's my job. Wait, that kind of is my job. I should get fired.

Now it's your turn. Please. For the love of Pete.

1. Your junk drawer looks like my organized drawer.

2. I could only dream of having my cabinets and drawers look like that on a normal day.

3. My tupperware cabinet is one of those that you have to open slowly, as it might spill and fall on your head.

I think your kitchen looks fabulous.

OMG you CRAZY person!! WHERE EXACTLY is the embarrassing part??? No really, you need to doctor these up with words and arrows so I know exactly which part is embarrassing.

You're officially part of the problem and not the solution now :) Your nutso, OCD under belly has been exposed for the world to see and all it sees is a perfect kitchen!

But bless your heart for not knowing how truly OCD you really are. I love you :)

I agree with everything Anonymous wrote. I covet your cabinets and counters, and you should SEE our drawer of Random Kitchen Appliances (stray knives, pizza cutters, wooden spoons, can opener, etc.). You'd run screaming...hopefully to Target to get me an organizing divider set of some kind.

Looks good to me, sweetie!

Just so you know, I read your post.

And I found a flaw in your kitchen. Your pans, plastic junk, etc. are not the same color or brand. That's what makes an internet photo kitchen, cuz they want you to buy all their tuberware.

Love you, PB
