It's All Michelle's Fault

We've been renovating and re-decorating our house for the last 7 years off and on which ironically or maybe not so ironically, is as long as we’ve lived in our house. Just recently we tackled our master bedroom. Paint, new bedding, framed pictures by MOI and in the process decided to also change the light fixtures.

Now, normally I am pretty go with the flow, follow the crowd, let’s be a sheep when it comes to decorating because really I have no talent for it. I like our house to be comfortable rather than magazine photographer ready.

Think of the yelling if it had to be kept magazine worthy all the time….*shudders for my children*.

But I do want it to look nice, in my opinion, because I am the one who has to look at it all the time.

I have seen these lights in the stores.


I used to like them. And they would have been my first choice had I not had a very significant conversation with my lovely sister in law, Michelle. She kindly pointed out to me what they, in quite a striking way, resemble.

Anyone see it?

I never even thought of it until she pointed it out to me.

I am so glad she did.

I wouldn't want to lie in bed and look up at a....

you know, a, er, hmmmm, how can I say this nicely?

A light shaped like MAMMARY GLAND (trying to avoid undesirable google searches here) on high alert!

OMG! I have never thought of that. We have a light something like this in our laundry room but it is not nearly as boobie-shaped. I shall never look at those fixtures the same again!!

Sorry Kami, but can you imagine having lights like that in your house with all those men??? Your vodka intake would triple.

Ah, HAHAHAHA! We have been renovating our house since I bought it in 2000. And we have a boob light like that on our ceiling fan. So now I think it looks like Janet Jackson's um, anatomy with her um, special jewelry that she wore during that famous superbowl performance. I can never turn that ceiling fan or light on again now without thinking of this post.

Funny! Dave has always referred to them as boob lights, I didn't see it till he pointed it out.

I've got a light very similar to that in our stairway. I'll never look at it the same way again. Thanks.
