Grumpfest and Copy Cats.

Grumpy Alert! I'm just saying, I didn't get that much sleep at all last night, Jett woke up SEVERAL times saying he was scared and so I would walk him back into his room, wait for him to fall back asleep and like maybe an hour later, he'd wake up again and I'd have to do the same thing.  Then thinking that I could just sleep in because I thought sure he'd be exhausted, I was very wrong! He got up as soon as Jared left for work so I didn't get to catch up on any sleep. :(  So I'm not in the best of moods today.

Anyway here is my gripe...

Yeah yeah yeah... I'm too old to be saying this... again, but GRRRRR! Seriously, why can't people do their own thing... and NOT MINE!!

We have worked REALLY hard on our house, we made it our own, and seriously my kitchen is my pride and joy.  No one... has anything like my kitchen, and I made it a little bit crazy just so that no one will try and do anything like my kitchen.  I have selected pieces that are ME, that a little weird, colorful, unique, that I've had in my head since I was in Jr. High!  My retroish/modern kitchen.  So of course, I guess it's only natural for me to feel a bit defensive when I see something somewhat similar to mine, or at least a few little things.  I just saw pictures of someone redoing their kitchen and low and behold... teal KITCHEN walls (which wasn't the biggest ordeal...i know it's just a color), the biggest URK of mine was they had MY CLOCK.... my super unique, funky little spoons and forks clock on their wall, it wasn't colored like mine, but it was all silver.  I'm like.... WHAT???  I know it probably is pretty easy to make, but ....... ugggg.  It just bites, because that is my favorite piece in my kitchen .... my FAVORITE (besides my yellow fridge)... and I have obviously took tons of pictures of my kitchen and it's been all over FB so everyone can see what we have been doing to our house because I was super excited about it.  I guess if someone comes up with a yellow fridge that will really tick me off, because I seriously no NOONE that has one.  I guess with the clock, it's just a clock and honestly it shouldn't be huge deal, but stuff like that just really gets under my skin very easily.  You try to be original and then.. little stuff like this starts happening.  I'm not going to lie or hide the fact that this is absolutley ridiculous and incredibly childish...hahaha.  It is just one of my pet peeves that has always bugged me.  Someday I will be at a point that I couldn't care or less, but right now I feel like griping about it. haha.  I know there has to be someone out there that feels the same way I do.  .... Come on wouldn't that bother you just a tad bit?

Oh well, I guess I can be flattered that my kitchen is now inspiration for someone else...  ....gah!

  1. It really must be an inspiration! I did see a clock like what you described at Target... they have a ton of retro stuff right now, that's really cute. I need to go back and find your pictures... do you have them on your blog? I go search and catch up. I've popped in a few times to do my own posts, but other than that, I've been neglectful.
    I'm glad you're in your home :)
