Illuminate me!

We took another step toward kitchen completion last night by installing the pendant lights over the sink (above) and breakfast bar (below).  I held the fixtures while my "electrician" wired everything up. He allowed the blond to screw in the lightbulb. (For the record, it only took one of me.)
We got a little wild over the breakfast bar, choosing glass with KU colors since our home has become Watch Party Central. Hey, at least, we resisted those Tiffany lamps with the Jayhawks on them (not that there's anything wrong with that.)

Not that there's anything wrong with that, but supporting your local artists is very cool.
