The Things People Say

I should start a blog about the stupid things people say.

I will set it up for you. As a family we walk into the Cracker Barrel, me holding Camden with Brandon and Brooklyn following behind. The Cracker Barrel has a lady there to greet us at the door.

Greeter (directed at Camden): Oh, you're a cutie!
Me: Thanks
Greeter (directed at Brooklyn): Oh, and aren't you beautiful. Your sister isn't as cute...but she'll do.

Brooklyn, I love you!!!

Today Brooklyn and I butted heads all day long. We were both grouchy and had no patience left in our bodies. But I just wanted to state that even after a rough day I still love and adore her. She can brighten my day with her warm hugs and her sweet voice when she says "I love you mom."

My kitchen is beautiful. I love it. It turned out better than I could have imagined. Here are the completed pictures.

The Fridge sticks out like a sore thumb.

We are looking into replacing the recessed lighting.

I can't decide if I want to make some window treatments. I want to add an outdoor lantern style light over the window rather than do window treatments. What do you think?

The Kitchen

Since we moved in our home, I have wanted to change practically everything in it. Being first time home buyers our eyes our bigger than our budget. So walls that once wore wallpaper have been bare since right after we moved in. This past week Brandon was out of town and I took this opportunity to tackle the Kitchen. I am in love with the green I chose for our wall.The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

The next three pictures are what the kitchen looked like at the beginning of the week.

The next few pictures are what it looks like now.

I still have the cabinet doors to paint.

This what my clean laundry looks like after a week of ignoring. Makes a great laundry basket right.
