Bowling me over!

It’s so hot outside, I’m freezing!  You know what I mean?  I’m sitting here directly under the air conditioning vent, and every time it kicks on it freezes me half to death. So I have a little jacket that I wear until it kicks off, or until I notice that I’m marinating in my own sweat, whichever comes first, and then it it kicks on again and we start the whole cycle over.  I think this calls for a frozen hot chocolate.

If that’s not enough oxymoron action for you, how about Jane’s awesomely awful kitchen? From the fruit basket wallpaper border to the bowling-alley-grade formica, head to toe, it had to go.  Well, the cabinets were nice and sturdy, so they just got a paint job, but everything else was moved and improved. So much better!

Here’s a better look at those bowling alley countertops. I don’t think they’ll be missed much.  Read more about Jane’s new butcherblock counters and her stunning backsplash on her blog at {So Much} Jane and Eugene.
