Weekend shopping

What a fantastic weekend we had. Good times with friends, catching some rays, a great long run, Olympics watching, and of course, some home repair. Nate changed the heating vent covers in the living room and they look fantastic. Unfortunately, I did not take a picture of them, but they are similar to the one in the Dining Room.

We also went shopping for light fixtures for the kitchen. Our current light fixtures are in the middle of the kitchen and over the sink. We are toying with the idea of putting some sort of pendant fixture where there cabinets used to be. I don't know if track lighting (see below) or single pendants would be better.

I really like this fixture to replace the one in the middle of the kitchen:

And we also would have a small pendant to put up over the sink as the current light fixture, which we put in last fall, doesn't really fit the space. We did not make any purchases yet, mainly because there are not too many options that we are liking and I am a little nervous that it will be light fixture overload in the kitchen since it is such a small space.
